Introduction and Specifications
With the Asus M2A-VM motherboard, we give the new AMD 690G chipset another spin and compare it to a similarly priced platform from Intel using the G965 chipset and its integrated graphics solution.
Recently AMD launched its first new chipset using property from the recent acquisition of ATI, the AMD 690 series. It comes in two flavors: the 690G that features integrated HDMI and DVI output and the 690V that does not. My first review of this chipset was on the MSI K9AGM2 motherboard and today I am following up with an Asus model that was sent along a few days later.
If you want additional information on the entire specifications of the 690 chipset, I strongly suggest you take a look at the previous AMD 690G review for all the details!
