Why haven't we heard anything from TH regarding the ASUS Brazos board E35M1-M Pro??? Other sites have already had posts regarding it but nothing from TH

Be nice if this pushes consoles to start beefing up there future units. I have a feeling that maybe Xbox will use there technology as well mmmmmmm.

I've been looking for a platform to use for a media PC, without having to use spare parts from my old, powerful, but power-hungry Phenom II X4. A small form factor platform and decent processor like AMD's APU seems to fit the bill - far better than any Atom solution.

Right on @SSeyler

I think this could finally be the small form factor unit I've been waiting on for an HTPC.

How much watt this consume ? Ive see benchmark of the Sandy 2500 using 33Watt idle and 100Watt full prime load. To be honest i rather get a a 2500 and have million time the power processing then this piece of shit.

D-Sub is VGA, yes. And you'd be surprised how many LCDs have it. Especially the mainstream ones.

So very true. I notice the D-sub VGA connection more often at mass market stores like Target, Sam's Club, Best Buy, and other direct competitors.

Still waiting for the no-fan Asus fusion board to become available(E35M1-I Deluxe). If you're going low power, you might as well go fanless.

It looks like OEMs are screwing AMD again(probably because Intel is paying them to). They've shipped 1 million APUs since early November, they've been sampling them to OEMs for atleast a couple months longer than that, they were launched a month ago, and I still can't find a single product containing one anywhere.

D-sub AKA "the blue monitor cable" or VGA. And while yes it is quite a few years old, it is still the most prominent video connection. Almost all monitors still carry this connector, many televisions do as well. It is suppose to be phased out by 2016, I believe, someone correct me if I'm wrong.

@srgess this is designed to compete with atom or a ULV cpu not sandy. I think typical total system power use is around 18W. Its good for HTPCs,thin notebooks. Sandy will cost you about five times as much, require more power, bigger power supply, bigger case....

srgess, why don't you stop trolololololing. I agree with whatisup there. But also, this is meant to compete with Atom, not Sandy. Bulldozer will compete with Sandy Bridge, and as for the APU concerns, the 2500's APU is defiantly not better than 6310, or so I've seen.

Both the "Dozer" and Llano will probably compete with Sandy.
I think in a week or two we can buy the Asus e35m Deluxe board with this current APU, and as many of you have said, it fits perfectly for an HTPC.

You're right why don't EVERYONE just get the most powerful cpu/ gpu combo.

That piece of shit you're talking about has an equal graphic performance than even the new Sandy Bridge lineup at A LOT lower price and A LOT lower power consumption... Definitely the Atom killer, yet absolutely inferior to Sandy Bridge in almost every aspect, especially price. Since inferior means lower (kinda), so I think in this case it's a good thing... :lol:

Well i don't care about your amd fanbois, sandy is about 70 watt more of usage for like thousand time more powerfull. We still don't know how much it cost so stfu. If you like atom notebook, u mean as well get a tablet. Atom dont have a place in real life unless you are stupid. Sandy dont mean to get powerful cpu/gpu rotsae, H67 have inboard video, and encode h.264 faster then a gtx 580. So i don't know really why you wouldn't pay a LITTLE extra box for something that consume a LITTLE more power for something REALLY more powerful. I guess you guys dont have job or still in high school.

For something that costs about 3-4 times more than this, and has a power consumption of 4 times more. Your definition of "little more" seems to be a bit off srgess.

Srgess, these Zacate Fusion APUs are meant for Nettops, HTPCs, budget computers and ultrathin notebooks (HP dm1z for example). Sandy Bridge chips are not meant for these tasks because they are:
1) overkill for HTPCs, both performance and $
2) too power hungry for Nettops'and ultraportable form factors
3) too expensive for Budget builds

Sandy bridge based computers are for the high performance and mainstream markets. Zacate Fusion APUs are way too low performance for the high performance markets and might give unsatisfactory performance for the mainsteam market.

These fusion boards will be just a little over 100$, sandy bridge is 280$ for CPU+Mobo at the very cheapest, so your paying triple for the extra perfromance. If you are even considering the fusion APU, you won't need the extra CPU horsepower in sandy bridge and would be better off saving the money or getting a SSD boot drive to make the system more snappy.

Does that make sense too you?

Where is your source that Fusion boards will be at little over 100$ and where is your source for being less then 3 time power hungry then a sandy 2400. Sandy Mobile bench are link now 60 watt transcoding 700mb hd video into ipad in 40Sec using only 60watt. I don't know for you but my htpc do video encoding so yes i consider the power usage and little priced a benefit overall for what it does price/performance. So you amd fanboi maybe want to shut it a little until we see the bench yet for this fusion years of talking and waiting speculation piece of crap failure.

You know what, sgess? Your ignorance and shallowness are getting too annoying. Calling people who's interested in a low power and low price product as fan boys. If that's the case, then every low to middle class society are fan boys of small houses. :pfff: 

If Intel releases this kind of product, the reaction will be the same anyway. Look at the positive response for the ION-Atom combination. Hell, if VIA releases a better product, then the compliments will be in their favor as well.

About the bench, at least check before you diss a product:

Surprise, surprise. Whaddaya kno'... It's already out... So come out of that little turtle shell of yours and start reading.

I really don't like the "shut the f*** up" and "piece of ***" term... Only people with low intelligence use them in a forum post. Fan boy or not, you're simply too retarded to talk around and telling people to STFU...

Which reminds me of an Intel fan boy in this forum. The BIG difference is: he's A LOT smarter than you. Just as annoying, but a lot smarter.
