Home Theater PC aficionados will surely be interested in this one. In January of this year, during the Consumer Electronics Show, NVIDIA disclosed details regarding their nForce 700a series of chipsets, the GeForce 8200 IGP, and Hybrid SLI. Motherboards based on the chipsets haven’t stormed the market just yet, but we wanted to show you something ASUS has in the works that’s slated to arrive very soon...
ASUS M3N78-EMH HDMI
What you see pictured here is the ASUS M3N78-EMH HDMI. The M3N78-EMH HDMI is a socket AM2+ motherboard, compatible with virtually all AMD single, dual- and quad-core desktop processors. The board is built around NVIDIA’s GeForce 8200 chipset, which offers Hybrid SLI support as well as HyperTransport 3.0 and PCI Express 2.0.
Due to the fact that the M3N78-EMH HDMI is built around the NVIDIA GeForce 8200 chipset, it’s equipped with a DX10-capable IGP with PureVideo HD support for good Blu-ray / HD DVD playback. But it’s also got multiple monitor outputs – in this case VGA, DVI, and HDMI – and supports multiple displays and Hybrid SLI. We have yet to take the ASUS M3N78-EMH HDMI for a spin on the test bench, but as soon as we do, we’ll let you know how it performs.
