New AMD A85X Motherboard Launched by Jetway

AMD has just promised that it has no plans for abandoning development of normal central and accelerated processing units, so a motherboard with its name on it is just the thing to seal the deal.

True, that isn't quite accurate, since there is no AMD in HA21-85X, but the chipset used is definitely the AMD A85X.

It is thanks to this chipset that the FM2 socket is present on the motherboard, and it is that socket that can welcome Trinity APUs.

A 4+2 phase power design is used, as well as four DDR3-1866 memory modules, an MSATA connector, five SATA 3.0 Gbps ports (no SATA 6.0 Gbps, alas) and a PCI Express 2.0 x16 slot.

Since this is a full ATX motherboard, that makes the Jetway HA21-85X a fairly low-end platform, although the lack of SATA III would have been enough to suggest that on its own.

Fortunately, Gigabit Ethernet, 7.1 channel audio, USB 3.0 (two ports) and three video ports are present (HDMI, DVI and D-Sub).
