Recognitions from Global Media
Awards from Worldwide Medias
“Editor’s Choice Award”
HKEPC (Hong Kong), January 28th, 2008
“……when it’s compared to previous RS690 chipset
based motherboards, being the first IGP which
supports DirectX 10 and Shader Model 4.0, the great
performance increase of the integrated graphics core,
the powerful Unified Video Decoder for HD Video, the
HDMI connector, and the support for HDCP, have
made this board be the best choice for HTPC……”
“Best Buy Award”
ComputerDIY (Taiwan), March 1st, 2008
“……obviously, the A780GM-A motherboard shows us
ECS’s efforts in providing not only a product with great
price/performance ration, but also a product with good
quality and nice overclocking capability……”
Awards from Worldwide Medias
“OC Recommended Award”
OC Heaven (Taiwan), April 8th, 2008
“……besides the great support for HD video decoding, featuring
Hybrid Graphics Technology is obviously an additional benefit
for users. With the great price/performance ration, there is no
concern for those certain users who might have a bit budget
limitation. This is definitely the best offering for users who are
looking for a board that is helpful to HD video decoding ……”
“Best Value Award”
OCWorkbench (Singapore), April 13th, 2008
“……ECS has put up a good challenge to the other players with
this ECS A780GM-A……For those who intend to build a HTPC,
a full fledge board might be a bit big for a small box. On the
other hand, the chipset gives you a cheaper alternative over the
790X as this full board has 3 PCI slots and 2 PCIe x1 slot for
future expansion use.……”
Awards from Worldwide Medias
“Great Value Award”
Guru3D (Netherland), April 3rd,
“……The ECS "Black Series" A780GM-A mainboard is a good example of what
the 780G chipset can do for you when properly implemented. It comes in an
aesthetically pleasing way, easy to use BIOS and at a very fair price. I'm seriously considering building
a Full HD HTPC out of the platform we showed you today……This week we'll receive a AMD revision
B3 Phenom processor, I can't wait to see how well it will perform on that. So yeah, I'm impressed by this
mainboard, and I don't say that very often, especially in this price range……”
“Recommended Product Award”
t-break (Middle East), April 2nd, 2008
“……ECS A780GM-A motherboard impressed us with the on-board features. Hybrid support and overall
a great layout is something that will please most users……”
Awards from Worldwide Medias
“Approved Award”
Phoronix (USA), April 14th, 2008
“While the AMD 790FX Chipset is the big brother to the 780G, the ECS
A780GM-A v1.0 was able to stand its ground against the flagship Gigabyte
MA790FX-DS5 in the tests we had conducted...The layout of this
motherboard is fine by our standards and shouldn't pose any problem
whether it's used for an HTPC/media setup or a mainstream gaming PC.”
“Price Performance Award”
Noticias3D (Spain), April 14th, 2008
“……Pros: Efficient consumption of energy, Correct yield
Contained price, Possibility of hybrid CrossFire, Good
connectivity (HDMI, VGA…) ……”
