Compatibility with 3-pin connector fans is provided. We don’t even have to take into account that boards based on integrated chipsets are rarely equipped with graphics cards with bulky cooling systems. Rear panel connectors, notice the two video outputs. The board was provided for tests by the manufacturer Dmitriy Laptev lpt ixbt.

This board is more likely to be suitable for a work computer. The electrolytic capacitors used on this motherboard are from several different vendors.

On the audio section capacitors from Teapo Taiwanese are used, and around the board the majority are from Chemicon Japanesewith three solid aluminum capacitors and two smaller caps from Evercon the new name for GSC, a Taiwanese company. This is really a pitty, since this motherboard is targeted to digital home PCs, where the user may want to capture and edit his or her own audio and video files.

For this kind of application look for a motherboard with at least 95 dB SNR on its input. This overclocking result is not extraordinary. Yet the low overclocking potential was somewhat disappointing. The thee-channel CPU supply impulse voltage stabilizer uses 3 field transistors per channel, 5 OST capacitors of microfarad and 4 Rubycon capacitors of microfarad each.

The layout rightfully deserves to be rated as perfect. AMD G graphics core runs at MHz and has four pixel shader processors and four vertex shader processors.


This model on the manufacturer’s website. Rear panel connectors, notice the two video outputs. A690gn2ma-8krs2h Power, Energy Consumption: Another positive attribute is the compound-covered induction coils in memory and chipset supply circuits.

The supply voltage stabilizer is enhanced by using chokes with United Chemi-Con capacitors. However, if lowering Hyper-Transport frequency, for example, doesn’t improve overclocking performance, the default multiplier is used instead.

The good thing about AMD G is that it has two independent video controllers inside, providing two video outputs on-board. The practical goal of our test is to find out if the CPU’s high overclocking potential is hindered by the board and to evaluate the board’s behavior in non-standard BIOS modes.

In contrast, the cut-down version indexed as RS2H, which has a Fast Ethernet controller instead of a gigabit one and a 6-channel audio codec instead of the 8-channel one, is going to join the worldwide ranks of cheap boards.

A690hm2ma-8krs2h multiplier and core voltage adjustment as well as HT bus multiplier options are all missing.

A6900gm2ma-8krs2h ports are equipped with edges, which is another sign of user-friendliness. The Foxconn model was not designed for such enthusiasts.

We have made the effort of listening to this motherboard in various modes using a passive CPU cooler and registered no foreign sounds in the supply system. An antivirus suite Norton Internet Security is also included. This board can house such a card just as well as any full-sized would. Besides, there are quite a few other boards based on AMD G that rightfully deserve their attention.


But now it has decided to join the majority supporting the new AMD G. BioShock Infinite and Metro: In addition, the set contains Fxconn LiveUpdate for updating the BIOS automatically with the ability to search for a new version on the manufacturer’s web-site. It has 10 USB 2.

Therefore, such motherboards are more likely to attract system builders and ordinary users that need inexpensive systems. Compatibility with 3-pin connector fans is provided. In order to evaluate the overclocked system’s stability, we load Windows XP and run performance a690gm2ma-k8rs2h built into WinRAR Tools menu – Benchmark and hardware test for 10 minutes.

The board successfully reverted to default settings in cases of excessive overclocking, a6900gm2ma-8krs2h problems there. This test also assesses the board’s ability to automatically revert to correct frequencies in the case of system hang-ups, excessive overclocking, etc. On the other hand, this motherboard has a TV Out header S-Video outputbut the adapter needed does not come with the product.
