What the hell is an AMR slot? What is it most used for.

More about : amr slot

It stands for Audio/Modem Riser. Basically, there are small cards you can put in that slot that act as a modem and sound card. They are really hard to find, though. I don't know anyone personally who actually has an AMR card, although I know plenty of people who have AMR slots.

Apple? Macintosh? What are these strange words you speak?

By the way, you'd get a better response if you posted something like this in the Motherboard forum or something.

AMR slots use a Codec instead of real hardware, which allows you to add sound, modem, and network interfaces that are as low quality as the cheapest of onboard devices.

they're also getting replaced by cnr slots. These look like pci slots put on backwards. they act as only interfaces and make the cpu do all the actual work. I don't see th point of putting these things on performance mobos. Ehey should instead put in an extra pci slot.

AMR = Audio Modem Riser
CNR = Communications/Network Riser

IMO, and from what I've read:
1) cheap and cheerful ways of adding audio/modem/network
capabilities via software on the mobo.
2) useless as hell, since you can't find AMR/CNR devices
commercially; they're more for OEM guys upstream.
