Another FM1 Llano motherboard
Altought we have seen this one in retail/e-tail before, MSI has now officially launched its MSI A75A-G55 FM1 desktop Llano ATX motherboard. The new A75A-G55 features MSI's Military Class II components, has two PCI-Express x16 slots with support for AMD's Dual Graphics and MSI's OC Genie II overclocking feature.

As far as the layout goes, the new A75A-G55 motherboard looks pretty clean, although we would certainly like to see angled SATA ports on the edge of the board. Spec wise, the new motherboard has four DDR3-1600 slots, two PCI-Express x16 slots (one set at x4 when both are used) with support for AMD's Dual Graphics and CrossfireX, three PCI-Express x1 slots, and two PCI slots, Gigabit LAN, two USB 3.0 ports, 7.1-channel audio, couple of USB 2.0 ports and DVI, VGA and HDMI outputs.

As far as the features go, the new A75A-G55 features MSI's Military Class II components including Hi-c CAPs, Super Ferrite Chokes and Solid CAPs, as well as, MSI's OC Genie II OC engine, ClickBIOS, Winki 3 Linux-based instant OS and i-Charger feature.

The new motherboard is currently listed in Europe with a lowest price tag set at €79,12. You can check it out here.

Considering where the SATA ports are on this board, I see no chance of GPU interference so no advantage to angled connectors. I can't see anybody using a Graphics card that long on this board anyway unless they were recycling an old one from their primary PC.
