We'd like to thank our friends at Gigabyte for providing the GA-E350-USB3 for our review today. I had high expectations for this E-350 motherboard, but the benchmark results didn't give me what I was looking for from this board. The next Fusion...

and FVDon’t let the test results fool you, even at 1/3 of the performance of its big brother the A8. The E350N-USB3 is still more than capable of playing HD content and that’s what it’s truly made to do. The Mini ITX form factor, all...

AMD’s latest Brazos Platform has proven popular over recent months, with many users adopting a secondary low powered system for general, light duties or as the foundation of a high definition media center. Today we are looking at the Gigabyte...

As you know, Mini-ITX motherboards are niche solutions required mostly when space is limited. Their second and third most important aspects are power efficiency and noise level. For your money you can have all three, but Mini-ITX boards usually...

So we're looking at a whole new swathe of AMD processors for desktops, notebooks and netbooks (not to mention nettops, tablets, all-in-ones etc), but the one that's really tickling our creative fancy at the moment are these E-Series 350 boards....

We were initially disappointed with AMD's new Fusion CPU, the E-350. Despite that, its low-power CPU-GPU chip, otherwise known as Zacate, does have something to offer in certain small form factor and portable computing niches. Enter, therefore, the...

Four years in the making, the first desktop iteration of AMD Fusion has proven to be quite the platform. Having reviewed and personally used other low-power media PC platforms, I approached AMD Fusion with skepticism. Previous platforms of this...

Gigabyte's GA-E350N-USB3 is a nice AMD alternative to Intel's Atom / ION combination that worked as-advertised here today.In our real-world analysis, the E350N performed nicely as a HTPC. It was able to process 1080p video from YouTube smoothly...

Gigabyte's hardware implementation of AMD's first Fusion chipset in the form of the E350N-USB3 is somewhat disappointing, as there are many critical features missing, and there is not much done to add more value to the platform. Of course, there...

Home theater systems and such have become a widespread phenomena. As technology becomes more and more affordable and even the low end systems have the juice to keep up with HD and Blu-Ray playback, there has never been a better time to buy one of...

Now I have reviewed a couple of Micro/Mini-ATX motherboards over the past couple of months, but nothing says discrete like Gigabyte’s 6.7″ x 6.7″ GA-E350N motherboard. Based on the recently released AMD Brazos chip, the GA-E350N comes...

The E350 is a very unusual introduction from AMD. Many would have thought the initial release for FUSION would not have been a low end chip. Typically both AMD and Intel release a flagship CPU upon introduction, but in this case, AMD looks to be...

we feel that this little guy will be a good choice if you intend to build SFF Boxes for your home entertainment or for simple desktop work. Although it is capable of DX11 game play, you would have noticed that the lower resolution we used to test...

First let’s talk a little bit about the AMD Fusion platform. When discussing this platform it is important to keep in mind that, like the Atom platform, the Brazos architecture is designed to be low powered and cost effective. Although it will...

The Brazos platform has to be taken for what it's worth. This isn't some super powerhouse system to meet enthusiast needs. Rather, this is something aimed at a more casual market. This is positioned for the web browsers, video watchers, email...

There are two parts in concluding this review. First we must consider AMD Fusion since that is the main reason for creating this product and second how do we rate Gigabyte in their solution to the E-350 problem. In a word, Bravo.Clearly the E-350...

A niche product, but AMD's Fusion and a solid feature set make for an impressive board at a decent price...

Gigabyte has taken the encouraging step of using AMD's newest technology and brought it to bear on the desktop. The Brazos platform encompasses a low-power CPU and DX11-capable integrated graphics on one chip, brought together under the firm's...

So was the AMD Fusion APU worth waiting for? As a replacement for the Intel Atom/ION platform, the E-350 APU certainly works well, though we did expect the CPU part to perform a bit better than just 20% faster than the aging Atom N330. In some ways...

General performance for the E-350 APU is pretty average. While the image editing test yielded the same pitiful result again and again, performance is behind or equal to that of the VIA Nano Dual core overall, although even the now defunct Intel Core 2...
