Photoshoot & Initial Impressions
The packaging itself is very much in line with Gigabyte convention, including everything that one usually needs to power up their new desktop computer. This includes four SATA cables, I/O shield, manual and driver disc.
Despite being an all new platform, gigabyte retains its unique blue colour scheme.The PCB layout is workable with no real surprises as such. Towards the rear, the I/O configuration is far from lacking; most users will be satisfied by this.
Finally, the cooling system consists of well proportioned passive heatsinks. There is no reason to believe that this would not be adequate. The installation process was fault free.
Right, enough with the photography. Next up, we evaluate the raw CPU performance of AMD's new A8-3850 APU.
