Asus invented the Fusion card without video outputs

Asus has announced its line of motherboards designed for AMD's APU Llano, second incarnation of the Fusion architecture. Asus and had a wonderful idea with the F1A75: the entry-level card does not use the graphics, lack of video output. Other cards range F1A75, they are naturally equipped with HDMI, VGA or DVI ...

The F1A75 is the map a priori the least expensive of the range and logic of Asus is strange when you choose a card entry is to pay less, and thus force the user to add a standard graphics card is amazing. Otherwise, the card is classic ATX format, it offers a socket FM1 and four slots for DDR3 memory.

There are two PCI-Express 16x (16x in a wired, the other at 4x), two PCI-Express x1 and three PCI slots. The audio is available in analog (six jacks) and digital (optical output) and six SATA 6 Gbit / s are present for hard drives and optical drives. Asus has done a lot of USB card has ten USB 2.0 connectors and four USB 3.0 connectors (two on the PCB of the motherboard).

Finally, the traditional PS / 2 and RJ45 are in the game. Nevertheless remains the question of the value of using an APU without using the graphical part: the Athlon II X2, X3 or X4 offer virtually the same performance at the party processor.
