Message Text: GIGABYTE today announced official support for next generation AMD Athlon and Sempron APUs based on the 'Kabini' SOC architecture.

GIGABYTE 'Kabini' support includes the new GA-AM1M-S2P and GA-AM1M-S2H motherboards based on the AM1 motherboard platform.

The latest AMD Athlon and Sempron APUs integrate up to 4 CPU Cores and a Radeon R3 Series Graphics core. They support Windows 8.1, AMD Mantle, DirectX 11.2 graphics and 4K resolution displays through HDMI. The new AM1 platform also features native USB 3.0 and SATA Revision 3 (6Gb/s) support.



The new 'Kabini' APU?s CMOS functions have been integrated into the APU; this means that when the user removes the APU, all CMOS settings revert to factory defaults. Even with the battery in place, users will lose settings such as the current time. GIGABYTE?s AM1 motherboards solve this issue by including a secondary RTC Clock IC onboard, so that even when the APU is removed, the CMOS settings are retained.

GIGABYTE DualBIOS protects one of your PC's most crucial components, the BIOS. It means that your motherboard has both a 'Main BIOS' and a 'Backup BIOS', protecting users from BIOS failure due to virus attack, hardware malfunction, improper OC settings or power failure during the update process.

The GIGABYTE AM1 motherboard also provide electrostatic discharge (ESD) protection for both your Ethernet LAN and USB ports, both common sources of ESD-related failures. Each LAN and USB port is paired with a dedicated protection filter that can withstand high electrostatic discharges, protecting your system from common electrical surges and even direct lighting strikes.

The new motherboards also provide durability with inclusion of Ultra Durable 4 Plus technology.
