We don’t even have to take into account that boards based on integrated chipsets are rarely equipped with graphics cards with bulky cooling systems. BioShock Infinite and Metro: Integrated audio support is implemented well. In contrast, the cut-down version indexed as RS2H, which has a Fast Ethernet controller instead of a gigabit one and a 6-channel audio codec instead of the 8-channel one, is going to join the worldwide ranks of cheap boards. But now it has decided to join the majority supporting the new AMD G. It is important to realize that overclocking performance varies by motherboard and is, to some extent, an individual characteristic of each specific unit.

Two sockets are yellow and the other two are black. This is simply great, especially if you think that the primary target of this motherboard is digital home PCs. This choice of components is quite good. BioShock Infinite and Metro: Frequency response 40 Hz to 15 KHzdB: Besides, there are quite a few other boards foxconn on AMD G that rightfully deserve their attention.

As we have mentioned previously, the cause most likely is the inability to lower the HT bus frequency. Conclusions We were pleased with the board from the technical standpoint and with the way it was equipped. The highest value for the inexpensive boards is most often in the range of MHz, while in this case we cannot lower the multiplier or at least raise the bus voltage.


An antivirus suite Norton Internet Security is also included. Thankfully, the chipset is still efficient enough and its functionality totally fits with the modern requirements.

Foxconn A690GM2MA-8KRS2H, Sockel AM2, AMD Motherboard

Southbridge is equipped with a low-profile compact heatsink. This chip is a complete controller, so this motherboard does not use the chipset south bridge foxonn to control its network interface.

It has 10 USB 2. Therefore, such motherboards are more likely to attract system builders and ordinary users that need inexpensive systems. In addition, the set contains Fox LiveUpdate for updating the BIOS automatically with the ability to search for a new version on the manufacturer’s web-site.

The board was provided for tests by the manufacturer Dmitriy Laptev lpt ixbt. Applying this test procedure, we are able to effectively use all of the test board’s supported abilities, including increasing processor core voltage, and if necessary, correcting multipliers and adjusting system and peripheral bus frequencies.

This board is more likely to be suitable for a work computer. For tests with integrated graphics we have used Catalyst 7. But now it has decided to join the majority supporting the new AMD G.

Foxconn AGM2MA Motherboard Review – Hardware Secrets

USB ports are equipped with edges, which is another sign of user-friendliness. It is important to realize that overclocking performance varies by motherboard and is, to some extent, an individual characteristic voxconn each specific unit. This card does not come with the motherboard and it seems that Foxconn does not manufacture it. The thee-channel CPU supply impulse voltage stabilizer uses 3 field transistors per channel, 5 OST capacitors of microfarad and a690gm2ma-8ors2h Rubycon capacitors of microfarad each.


The latter is especially vexing, because overclocking of inexpensive motherboards is usually restricted by the board’s inability to operate at a higher HT clock rate.

On the other hand, this motherboard provides full 7. We have made the effort of listening to this motherboard in various modes using a passive A69gm2ma-8krs2h cooler and registered no foreign sounds in the supply system.

For this reason, it is impossible for us, and any other review, to determine the overclocking potential of any board with megahertz precision. Click here for a detailed explanation about Avivo.

When the integrated graphics card is used, its performance drops a little more in computational tests, while the game tests produce equal results. On the other hand, this motherboard has a TV Out header S-Video outputbut the adapter needed does not come with the product.

This board can house such a card just as well ffoxconn any full-sized would.

Such design fully satisfies the cooling requirements for this chipset. This time there is an abundance of timings, yet the selection of settings has not become more balanced.

Integrated audio support is implemented well.
