A-Series sidekicks A55 and A75

Being a new platform, Lynx is accompanied by a new socket (Socket FM1) as well as two new southbridge chips. The A55 and A75 FCH (Fusion Controller Hub) tout various impressive features:

The A75 is particularly appealing as it supports four USB 3.0 ports and six SATA 6Gb/s ports. By comparison, Intel's H67/P67/Z68 chipsets only support two SATA 6Gb/s ports and no USB 3.0 ports.
