AMD Maui HTPC Video Spotlight

2 thumbs up



Synopsis:  AMD's "Maui" home theater PC platform consists of a combination of AMD hardware and software.  Systems built around the platform feature an energy efficient Phenom or Athlon processor, ATI Radeon graphics, ATI TV tuners, and AMD LIVE! software elements.  The current foundation of the platform is MSI's somewhat unique Media Live DIVA 5.1 motherboard, which is based on the AMD 780M chipset, and includes a specialized Intersil D2 Ausio DAE-3 audio chip with an accompanying 5.1 channel amplifier, but a 3.1 / 7.1 pre-amplifier card is also an option.

Yeah the 4000 gpus are awesome. The new cpus look like they are going to be a lot of fun to play with. I think they wanna stay out of a GHz race with intel for now so they are promoting overclockablity.
