AMD 780G Chipset Reviews

amd 780g logo
Last week AMD released the new 780G chipset, this week we can show case some of the reviews..

First up is's article "AMD 780G Chipset / AMD Athlon X2 4850e Platform Review" featuring the Gigabyte GA-MA78GM-S2H and the AMD X2 4850e.

As you can see from the numbers posted the new chipset and on-board graphics perform extremely well. So much so that has concluded that, "AMD has redefined what the integrated graphics should be"

"With their first DirectX 10 integrated graphics chipset, AMD has redefined what the integrated graphics should be. Performance of the integrated graphics is near on par with the HD3450 that ATI sent with the kit. Integrated graphics that nearly equal discrete graphics of the mainstream is excellent, as that means you don’t have to purchase an additional add-in card for the $50 they are targeting the motherboard chipset at. Building a new system with an inexpensive CPU and memory is a definite boon to the OEMs."

Second is Tom's Hardware with the article "AMD's New 780G Chipset Has Powerful GPU" also featuring the Gigabyte GA-MA78GM-SH2. This review takes it a step further (as Tom's alwasy does) and provides us with a few benchmarks using several different CPU's and dedicated video cards.

And again the conclusion seem to be the same. The new platform is a hit!
Conclusion - Very Fast On-board Graphics With HD Video Support
AMD's 780G is an improvement in every way over its predecessor, the 690G, offering better graphics performance, lower power consumption and greater functionality.

Legit Reviews previews more motherboards, the new MSI K9A2GM, ASUS M3A-H/HDMI, ECS R780M-A, Foxconn A7GM-S, J&W A78G and Jetway PA78GT3 in their article "AMD 780G Chipset Motherboard Preview". While not as impressive nor as informative as the above reviews it is still an article worth mentioning.

All in all so far 24 Boards from 13 companies have been announced. From the looks of these reviews I'd say the 780G may just be the platform for my next project build.
