With specifications still shrouded in secrecy (until 2/28/07), the AMD 690 chipset is beginning to show itself on new motherboards. Today we will be looking at the new EPoX EP-AT690G Pro motherboard to see what it can do.
With the merger of AMD and ATI, there has been much speculation as to what would come out of the mix. The AMD 690G chipset is one of the first things to come of the partnership. The actual specifications of this chipset are still in the dark, as all of the hardware vendors who have access to this chipset have signed an NDA to keep the information to themselves until the scheduled publication date of February 28, 2007.
But instead of focusing on what we don't know about this board, how about taking a look at what we do know. It's EPoX's first board to tout the AMD 690G chipset, paired with the ATI SB600. It has an onboard Radeon X-700 graphics processor, with both VGA and DVI connections on the main board. It has integrated sound, up to 10 USB ports, Gigabyte networking, and more.
Lets take a look at the specifications for this board:
