Review Score:
8 Flares 8 Flares ×

Today we are going to look at the Gigabyte F2A85XM-D3H motherboard which supports AMD’s latest Trinity APUs and occupies a Micro-ATX form factor.  We will also be looking briefly at the performance of the AMD A8-5600K APU as we haven’t had a chance to test it previously.  This processor and motherboard combination isn’t top-of-the-range, but should offer users a healthy balance between price and performance.

Gigabyte is renowned for producing a wide range of quality motherboards which encompass both Intel and AMD platforms.  Additionally they have a comprehensive range of models supporting the latest AMD FM2 socket, spanning from those based on the low-end A55 chipset to the more feature-filled A85X that resides on this particular model.

The F2A85XM-D3H fits in the range below the F2A85X-D3H and F2A85X-UP4 which are both full size models.  The Micro-ATX form factor of the F2A85XM-D3H makes it ideal for those looking to build a compact tower PC or a large HTPC.  We look forward to seeing how it performs in our tests.

    Certainly can;t knock the value of the system. Would be good attached to a tv with a remote and keyboard.

    I would have preferred benching with the internal GPU. Otherwise this is a great bargain.

    Looks like a bargain but if you’re looking for high end z77 performance you’ll definitely have to pay a bit more.
