We encountered no stability problems running a multitude of benchmarks, but the lack of features and optimizations preclude us from publishing a meaningful first look, especially for those looking to use this new platform in an HTPC or SFF gaming system.
The primary gigabyfe between the cores is that the HD fully supports DX It seems that in our rush to secure this motherboard that we overlooked one very important aspect during our investigation.
It turns out the driver set we were privy to for testing is an early beta set missing several important driver features while AMD is still optimizing performance. Gigabyte has produced yet another sterling uATX motherboard that is fully featured. Of course, there were discussions with AMD explaining some of the early problems we ran ga-m785gpmt-ud2h during testing.
Our original plans called for a direct comparison between the two platforms but that will have to wait until the official release next month with production ready drivers. Our Athlon II X2 had no problems reaching a stable 3. So much so, that unless something drastic happens in the next driver release, we will stop recommending the purchase of a discrete video card on the AMD chipset platforms.

Of course most users purchasing this type of product are not that interested in gaming and if you are, then we highly suggest ga-mx785gpmt-ud2h a HD or HD for x or below resolutions. That sounds impressive, but playing the Sims3 at x with medium quality settings resulted in an average framerate increase from The graphics core still runs at MHz in current form and at least in our particular sample, we were able to reach MHz without too much trouble.
Anything higher, and we suggest a HD based on current price to performance ratios. As such, AMD requested that we wait until the drivers are mature and based on early test results we will heed their requests.

How much is up for discussion as AMD designated the new chipset just a half point higher for a reason. AMD will have an official release candidate ready shortly and we expect the boards to ship with the 9.

The biggest difference occurred in minimum frame rates with an increase from 12fps on the G to 15fps on the G. Log in Don’t have an account? This board had no problems unlocking our particular retail units although your mileage will vary based on processor quality and BIOS options.
That is it for our preview follow-up, suffice to say that AMD has produced another very good chipset that provides the most cost effective IG performance in the market.

Gigabyte G – OC. In our only test today we see very good results in the Blu-ray playback capabilities of the G. What does all this mean? These coolers work great for overclocking either Athlon II X2 processor. Before we could even try our hands at waterboarding Gigabyte’s latest multimedia wonder, testing came to a grinding halt.
Once we identified our target, we scoped ga-ms785gpmt-ud2h out, formulated a snatch and grab plan, and then waited until the time was right. Sign up now Username Password Remember Me.
Gigabyte’s GA-MA785GPMT-UD2H – AMD’s 785G is Here, Sort of…
Like a good spy, we searched all over two continents for a motherboard containing AMD’s G chipset. We did not have any HDMI incompatibilities, no repeater issues to report, the G just worked and we think it will only get better.
The full specification sheet is in our Gallery. What we can do today is discuss some early observations and provide a couple of results that are indicative of the board’s capability with an early BIOS and a quick look at Blu-ray playback results. We thought the time was right last week to swoop in and grab the object of our desire.
