After being in development since 2006, AMD was finally able to debut their Fusion APU at the 2011 CES. If you haven’t been keeping up with processing technology as of late, APU stands for Accelerated Processing Unit and is AMD’s CPU + GPU combo chip. Today we are going to be taking a look at a motherboard / APU combo from Gigabyte, the GA-E350N-USB3. The E350N utilizes the Brazos platform and more specifically, the Zacate APU which features a dual-core Bobcat CPU operating at 1.6 GHz and AMD Radeon HD 6310 graphics.
Of course, if you are reading this review, chances are that you are looking for something that is more… mainstream. Not ‘low end’ or ‘cheap’, but mainstream, midrange performance — the most sought after market bracket by all board manufacturers. So don’t complain to us that we go Lamborghini all day and ignore all the Hondas of this world, because we specifically wanted the ASUS P8P67 PRO for our review today. Following the brilliant ASUS P8P67 WS Revolution we have taken a look at last week, how well does the P8P67 PRO hold its own against its bigger brother? We’ve got you covered.
