AMD 900 Series mATX board?

Mon Dec 12, 2011 10:43 am

Will we ever see a micro ATX board based on the 900 series chipset? Even a 970 board would be acceptable. I like my Antec mini P180 case and would rather not have to buy a new case to upgrade.

What does the 9xx series offer over the 8xx series?
Newegg has several micro ATX AM3+ boards, in stock, just not with the 9xx series.

I do not believe the 8xx has native SATA 6Gbps or USB3 in the southbridge. Mostly just wanting latest for potential future compatibility. My Phenom X6 1090T is already running in my old ASUS M4A78-EM. However I would like to demote that board to fileserver duty and get my desktop bumped to DDR3 while DDR3 is still cheap.

SB850 includes SATA3. Does it really make a difference to you whether those features are native or add-ons?
