    [quote<]Expreview reports Gigabyte introduces 12 Llano APU motherboards [/quote<] I'm real curious to see the Gigabyte A75N-USB3 (mini ITX) mobo. Ultradurable 3 no less, but I'm wondering if it will be UEFI, BIOS, or some Coreboot payload. It's good to see Gigabyte is committing to Llano in a big way launching 12 different Llano mobos at once. I don't recall a mobo maker ever doing that on any new single ISA. Anyone else?

      • willmore
      • 9 years ago

      I don’t know, but one little graphic said 3GB+ booting, so that makes me think maybe. After all, if you do EFI for a chipset, why not do it for all boards using the chipset? *crossfingers*

        • mutarasector
        • 9 years ago

        Like you, I’m hoping w/crossed fingers too.

        According to the one box feature graphic shown at:

        [url<][/url<] ... the a75-UDH4 features a "Hybrid EFI". and "Dual BIOS". That said, Gigabyte's 6-series motherboards for example (Z68X-UD3H-B3) offers 'Hybrid EFI', which is not truly an EFI, but uses an EFI bootloader and an Award BIOS. This was done (in part) to implement support for >2.2 TB HDDs for older OS's. With Llano however, AMD has provided Coreboot support. My question was one of whether Gigabyte's 'Hybrid EFI' on Llano motherboards will work essentially the same way, using Llano's Coreboot as the bootloader with an Award BIOS, or Coreboot with an EFI _payload_ stored in those dual 'BIOS' ROMs?

          • willmore

          So, there’s always the option to ‘roll your own’ with LinuxBIOS, errr, coreboot. 🙂 “So we’ve got that going for us.”

    I’ve [i<]got[/i<] to remember to not read crap on Fudzilla. From the Llano price story I stupidly clicked through to an article about LGA 2011 mobos and found this brain-exploder:[quote<]The main difference in these thin specs we've seen is the TPM support, and to our best knowledge this should be the trusted platform module support, something that only a few ultra rich gamers, a key target audience might need.[/quote<]

      That is pretty bad that they think ‘ultra rich gamers’ are the ones who need or care about TPM, but if they are talking about boards that are targeted at gamers or DIY overclockers they kind of have a point – out of that market, only the ‘ultra rich’ would care about TPM, although imo none of them care. They aren’t boards you’d expect to see in a secure corporate setting.

    “DailyTech reports U.S. Senate proposes prison time for illegally streaming movies, TV”

    So you would do less time if you Gifford a senator then…lol.

    • UberGerbil

    If those Llano prices are accurate, they look like pretty good deals (modulo actual performance, of course). I wonder if the mobile versions will similarly be cheaper than expected? Might explain why some of the Brazos machines are getting thin on the ground.

      • FuturePastNow
      • 9 years ago

      $150 is about what I’d be willing to pay for a $90 CPU attached to a $60 GPU. Therefore I’m going to guess those prices are accurate.

        • Arag0n
        • 9 years ago

        With almost no price difference between DDR3 1333 and 1866, it could be a pretty good deal to buy a desktop with this Llano CPU’s. It’s not a top-line desktop but it’s a good one for light gaming, web-browsing, movies, etc with very low power requirements (low noise) and possibilities for a compact design. I think OEM’s may have higher interest than consumers itself into Llano success.

        You have to think also that the chip area for the northbridge, cpu and gpu it’s lower than their nowdays equivalent with almost the same price, it means that the gross margin for AMD it’s increased. I hope Llano succeds in the mobile and desktop market, we need more efficient and compact computers not absurdily powerful ones.

          • JustAnEngineer
          • 9 years ago

          I need both, but I’ve got two PCs for that.

          I want to see a full-featured low-power mini-ITX motherboard for Llano so that I can use it in a compact box for my living room HTPC/DVR.

            • Arag0n
            • 9 years ago

            Me too depending the work I’m doing, but I just want to mean that the average joe it’s happy with the performance of a smartphone CPU and GPU that it’s almost pretty nothing comparing with what we are used to… because the average joe only uses a pc for internet browsing, facebook, handling his camera photos and some document editing or reading….

            Of course there is market for ultra-high end cpu’s, specially where time it’s money like 3D studios that require as much cpu as possible cuz faster cpu means shorter work time and improved productivity that overcomes the costs of the cpu’s and the power, but the average joe it’s not playing the game with the same rules…

            • JMccovery
            • 9 years ago

            I wonder if some enterprising board maker would add 1 or 2 extra USB 3.0 controllers to a Llano board? I think there are an extra 4 PCI-E lanes coming off from the CPU in addition to the 4 from the FCH. I wonder what Zotac, Asus and Gigabyte can come up with on the high(er) end mini-ITX Llano front.

            • willmore
            • 9 years ago

            Aren’t there already 4 on the A75 part? How many do you want? I know, I know, *all of them. 🙂

            • mutarasector
            • 9 years ago

            Me too! I’m thinking of a Ceton CableCard HD 6-streaming tuner card for the PICEe slot on a mini-ITX mobo.
