Gigabyte E350N-USB3



Very recently we managed to place our grubby hands on the Asus E35M1-M PRO motherboard; one of the first of many to include the new AMD Fusion "Zacate" 18W Dual Core processor. As you can see, our overall verdict about the platform itself was fairly straight forward. Great GPU performance for general purpose, a processor that is a reasonable amount faster than the existing Atom range and acceptable Power Consumption/Thermal Characteristics to boot. However we did have some reservations about the motherboard itself in that it was of thee larger Micro ATX form factor. Lets be honest here. We are dealing with an embedded system that is designed to suit small chassis configurations, so why bother with mATX? Thankfully another AMD Fusion motherboard has arrived, which could well be what many of you are after. Ladies and gentlemen, the Gigabyte E350N-USB3.

The E350N USB3 follows a similar specification set to the previously reviewed E35M1-M PRO. Naturally due to its Mini ITX form factor, it does lack a little in the expansion slot department, however with a single x16 size slot, 4 x SATA 6.0Gb/s and plenty of USB ports, you would be crazy to complain. That said, the inclusion of integrated 802.11x WiFi would have really hit the spot.
