[eTeknix]Asus E35M1-M Pro AMD Fusion Micro-ATX Motherboard Review

post #1 of 38

AMD were also joined by some of the biggest partners of theirs including the likes of Asus, Gigabyte, MSI and Sapphire who will be using the Fusion APU platform, joined with the Hudson M1 chipset to offer an all-in-one solution aimed at the budget market, leaving the options open for the likes of HTPC users.

If you remember the Fusion Mini-ITX preview we did last week, we showed some of the boards that we can expect to be released including the Asus E35M1-I Deluxe with its passive cooling solution, giving it a certain edge over the competitors

Thanks to our friends at AMD, we have been supplied with the E35M1-M Pro to see how it fairs in a variety of the latest gaming benchmarks, video rendering, and CPU intensive tests. With a low wattage design and packed full of features, how will this perform in real world tasks?

Looks pretty badass. I would only want one for a mobile platform or HTPC but that UEFI is appealing.


EDIT: I should mention that the video goes through the UEFI

Yeah, pretty sad that such a meaningless feature can sway us like this. I can easily buy an athlon ii x2 with a micro-atx board that'll perform much better than this(except in the HTPC fields?) for $10 less.

Proof please?

Don't forget the massive difference in power draw.

Wow. Not bad.

EDIT: The guy in the video says it's mini ITX but I can see it clearly isn't. Mini ITX motherboards barely have enough space for one expansion slot. When a mini ITX version of this comes out, I'll consider it, but for now I'm gonna pass on this.

i want uefi now.... why wasnt the old bios phased out 100 years ago? man i didnt think uefi would be that different from the old school bios but that is awesome! its actually a modern type program! is asus doing this with all their new mobos? i hope everyone makes the switch soon that way im not restricted to only buying asus mobos (so far thats what i do anyways but it would be nice to have the options)

Here you go - http://www.anandtech.com/show/4134/t...-for-miniitx/6

And yeah, I know there's a significant difference in power draw. Just talking about bang for buck here. I am waiting to see more E-350 netbooks so I can get one.

If you wanted proof that an athlon II setup would be cheaper,

http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16813138283
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16819103903

I saw another review showing brazos itx mobo/AIO's for $130 USD. However, I think the E-350 will be cheaper in most cases but depending on what you want, the athlon II is a better buy when it comes to bang for buck (CPU-wise at least)

The board you selected lacks USB 3.0, Firewire, SATA 6gb/s, and eSATA.
It also has inferior integrated sound. (ALC662 vs the Asus' ALC887)

When comparing features, the Biostar board lacks.
Therefore, the Asus' price premium isn't entirely unjustified.
