The NEW Asus F2A85 Series Motherboards
The new ASUS F2A85 Series motherboards are based on AMD's new A85X chipset, which supports the 2nd generation Accelerated Processing Unit (APU) offering from AMD. Embedded with an AMD Radeon™ HD 7000 Series Graphics, the APU delivers superior performance-per-watt extreme graphics performance that's bolstered with support for AMD Eyefinity technology, enabling an ultra-immersive visual environment on up to three independent display outputs.
Add on a discrete GPU, and you enable the Dual Graphics feature which provides users with even better graphics performance along with peace-of-mind future upgradability.
On board ASUS F2A85 Series motherboards are a bevy of exclusive features designed to get you more out of your APU, including Dual Intelligent Processors 3, GPU Boost and USB BIOS Flashback. Together, they make the F2A85 Series motherboards the perfect platform to compliment your new AMD APU.
