With AMD's 8 Series chipsets widely available, it's time to check out eight of the latest AM3 motherboard
Like Zotac's H55-ITX, the Pure Mini couples the cut-down form factor with a full power processor. It's a socket AM3 board which supports AMD's dual core Athlon or Phenom CPUs, and it comes with built in ATI 4200 graphics and Via VT1708S audio. There's even room for a PCI-Express graphics card, if you so wish.
A new generation of motherboards is upon us. Is it worth jumping ship to DDR3 and Core i7 now, or sticking to old ways?
It can fit into an AM2+ socket and support for DDR3 memory, but can this CPU take the quad-core crown?
