GA-AM1M-S2P

Exclusive Timing Preservation

Duo to AM1 is a brand-new SOC structure and CMOS function now is integrated into AM1 APU, so if APU is removed, users will lose date/time in BIOS and Windows. GIGABYTE exclusive has added a RTC IC to help maintain users' system clock settings without having to reset every time APU is removed.

HDMI Interface

HDMI is latest High-Definition Multimedia Interface, which is able to provide up to 5Gbps video transmitting bandwidth and also 8-channel high quality audio. Via transmitting uncompressed digital data, HDMI is able to reduce signal interference as transferring between digital and analog signal, seen and heard, direct from the source. In addition, HDMI is compatible with HDCP (High-bandwidth Digital Content Protection), which allowing playback of Blu-ray / HD DVD and other protected contents.


GA-AM1M-S2P

4K Ultra HD Support

4K resolution is the next technological milestone in high-definition content delivery, utilizing approximately 4,000 pixels on the horizontal axis, more than four times today's standard HD pixel density. GIGABYTE AM1 series motherboards provide native 4K support with AM1 APU integrated graphics via HDMI port.

High ESD Protection for USB and LAN (USB 3.0 Only)

GIGABYTE motherboards raise the bar in terms of protecting your system, providing advanced 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.


GA-AM1M-S2P

One Fuse per USB Port (USB 3.0 Only)

On GIGABYTE motherboards each USB port has its own dedicated power fuse that prevents unwanted USB port failure, helping to safe guard your important data during transfer.

GIGABYTE On/Off Charge technology allows you to charge your iPhone, iPad and iPod Touch regardless of whether your PC is on, in standby mode or even off. A derivative of GIGABYTE's highly acclaimed 3x USB Power feature, On/Off Charge enables devices to draw more current from GIGABYTE motherboard USB ports than standard USB ports allow, so that charging from your PC can be as fast as with a charger.

ErP Lot 6 Support

The ErP (also known as Energy-Related Products Directive) is part of the European Union's environmental regulations policy. It is based on concern for the environmental as the proliferation of electronic devices continues, and how to improve energy efficiency for a better and greener life. GIGABYTE supports ErP and produces motherboards that help you effectively improve system efficiency.

4 out of 5 eggsGood Board!

Pros: -AM1 Chip, (Uses Sempron Or Athlon)
-UFEI BIOS
-@BIOS On OS
-On Off Charge Technology
-MicroATX

Cons: -Could Use More DDR3 Slots
-Could Add More SATA Slots
-LPT Isnt really Necessary (No one barely uses that anymore)
-Could Use More USB 3.0 Slots

Other Thoughts: Otherwise Great Little Board, Gigabyte is a great co. to buy boards from! They have a long warranty 3 years Manufacture Warranty! That is really great!

The Downside?: it could use more SATA, And DDR3 Slots,

The Upside?: UFEI BIOS, @BIOS On your OS, Can Get up to 6/GBs with the SATA Cables!, ON OFF Technology is really useful! if you accidently leave your phone in the USB Port while charging it auto shuts off so your wasting electricity and USB 3 Ports Use 1 Fuse Per Port! Great Little Feature I've never seen on boards before! This Board is a Recommended Buy!

5 out of 5 eggsSelected for the HDMI connector

Pros: I needed a cheap board that had an HDMI output for a home theater machine. This delivered and hasn't presented any problems yet.

Cons: No cons considering the application and price.

3 out of 5 eggsGood Quality Lousy Design

Pros: Well made board out of seven purchased all worked and worked well. I would give this board 5 eggs, but who builds a modern main board with NO USB 3.0 HEADER??

Cons: If you can believe this they put serial port and parallel headers on this main board and then NO USB 3.0 HEADER on the mainboard. So apparently you are supposed to take this very modern board and install it in an ancient case, or you can explain to your users that this fabulous new computer is great except the front USB ports don't work.

Other Thoughts: This is a very good board with solid build quality and it has USB 3.0 ports on the back, but if you are using a case with front USB 3.0 Port(s) you will be better off with another board. I ended up having to buy PCI-E cards for all the machines in order to get an internal USB 3 header.

1 out of 5 eggsdead after a week.

Pros: seemed to work fine

Cons: Now I don't know wth is wrong with it.

Other Thoughts: Worked Okay for about a week, so it wasn't my install. Now it won't even POST.

G.Skill RipJaws X Series DDR3 1600 4GB
Crucial MX100 128GB Sata III SSD

StarTech PCI Express IDE Controller Card for older IDE CDRW drive.

Cons: Wish it had a THIRD Sata III connector. Especially with a SSD and Larger Secondary HARD DRIVE.

5 out of 5 eggsGreat board

Pros: -Worked perfectly right out the box
-Gigabyte, so lots of reliability and features
-@BIOS software
-Sleek look
-Everything I wanted, and everything I expected

Cons: -None

Other Thoughts: Always buy Gigabyte motherboards if you can... Been treating me well a long, long time. This AM1 platform AMD has going is really neat, and making a lot of people happy. Really hope they keep it going, because it's great! Can't beat this performance with a 25w power envelope! Anyway, this is the perfect board for an AM1 build, but I suppose I would like more SATA ports... Could really use 4 of them, but I know, I know, price and all... Anyway, AM1 for life.

4 out of 5 eggsThis should have been a 5 egg review except for one thing

Pros: Solid motherboard. Fits nicely in the gigantic case I have and runs very stabily. Good number of expansion slots and the correct number of I/O ports for HTPC.
Seems to perform very well.

Cons: When you go to install the drivers, there is a bunch of G**gle software that automatically installs. This really ticks me off since I hate that company with a passion.

I knocked off a full egg for the annoyance of having a toolbar, an internet browser, and a cloud drive program install without my permission that I then had to go and uninstall.

Other Thoughts: @Gigabyte: please quit saddling your driver disks with Crud ware.

5 out of 5 eggsNice Motherboard

Pros: Well priced, seems well made.

Cons: Documentation that came with the board was little to none, This wasn't my first build so I was fine but to someone who has never built a computer before they could be completely lost when it comes to the motherboard pins and other parts. Would have liked more than two sata ports but that's more because of the chipset than the board.

Other Thoughts: I really like this board, it is simple and well made.

5 out of 5 eggsFantastic MB deal!

Pros: Excellent value/feature set. Excellent durability features.

Cons: Could use a few more SATA connectors

Other Thoughts: This is a perfect board for general use, entry level gamer and business systems. Designed for a single hard drive and a single optical drive setup, as there is only 2 SATA connectors. Supports up to 3 monitors and 32GB of RAM, so can satisfy most users' needs. Power conscious users can love the fact that this supports the very "green" AMD processors using only 25 watts.

5 out of 5 eggsGreat little board

Pros: Supports 32GB of memory, Small, and detailed BIOS.

Cons: A couple more DIMMs, SATA ports and USB3 ports would be much appreciated, but that might be the fault of the integrated chipset on the APUs that the board supports.

Other Thoughts: I think sideport memory would be a great compliment to a board like this. The last system I built (circa 2009) had a 790x NB that had some integrated graphics capability, and a few vendors included 128MB DDR3 sideport memory. Given that Kabini APUs grab a chunk of RAM to give the GPU memory, and that the chips only support single channel memory, I think it would've been a great way to mitigate one of the deficits of the chipset. That would've raised the board's price a little bit, but I think it could've justified the increased price.
