It actually turns your PC into an ultimate gaming machine. This chipset enables fast speeds with the latest HD technologies and is easy to use. The AMD SB710Southbridge Chipset optimizes power saving and video decoder. This is made possible by high performance embedded graphics in their "Design Kit" and video decode software, which turns it into a solution. The Socket AM3 Connector is a CPU socket for AMD processors. AM3 was launched on February 9, 2009 as the successor to Socket AM2+, alongside the initial grouping of Phenom II processors designed for it. The sole principal change from AM2+ to AM3 is support for DDR3 SDRAM. Intel ES300 Pentium Dual- Core, 2.6 GHZ/2M/800...
