Default Back to the Past: ASRock Launches Brand New S939 AMD Motherboard

ASRock has just launched a brand new 939 board based on AMD's 785G chipset.

The board features 4 DDR slots, 1 PCIe x16, 1x PCIe x1, 2x PCI slots, Gigabit LAN, 7.1 audio, 6 USBs, 5 SATA II connectors and even serial and parallel ports, to go with the retro theme. Thanks to ATI's HD 4200 graphics with 128MB of SidePort memory, the ASRock 939A785GMH/128M features HDMI, DVI and VGA connectors.

Even an old K8 coupled with HD 4200 graphics could make for a quite nice HTPC and beat any Atom senseless, especially if you factor in the rather affordable price.
K8 setup would be 80-120W idle, more under load
Atom setup would be 20w idle, 24W under load

yes... senseless

Well, I'm still using a socket 939 dual core and highly overclocked (2.94Ghz).So my watts are probably outrageous.

But think of it this way.If they still release agp cards and sell almost no agp motherboards (only 1 from asrock) as far as I know.This board might make sense in a way.

Well, you're thinking incorrectly.

The AGP cards released are to help those few that still have an AGP based board. Not to install in a new system.

ASRock is also one of the few brands that still manufacture socket478 mobo's (AGP or PCIe; the former is a P4i65GV), maybe that's also another reason why they still have AGP GPUs...
