SAPPHIRE 785G mainboard supports DDR3 for AMD Phenom II

SAPPHIRE Technology has just released a new feature packed mainboard
based on the highly acclaimed 785G chipset from AMD, supporting the
latest AMD Phenom ll processor families with DDR3 memory and on-board
DX10.1 graphics as well as PCI-Express 2.0.

The SAPPHIRE PURE 785G (part number PI-AM3RS785G) is a fully
featured mainboard in standard microATX format combining the powerful
AMD 785G Chipset and AMD SB710 south bridge. Two DIMM slots support up
to 8GB of DDR3 1333/1600 memory and there is an on-board 128MBit DDR3
sideport memory. The integrated high speed 3GB/s SATA hard drive
interface caters for up to 6 devices with optional RAID functions, and
there is also an Ultra DMA IDE connector. On board features include
GigaBit LAN and 6-channel HD Audio with 3D audio capability as well as
support for up to 8 USB 2.0/1.1 devices.

The 785G chipset has integrated graphics, equivalent to an ATI 4200
series graphics card, giving full DX10.1 support for the latest games
and software. The on board UVD decodes BluRay and HD DVD content
smoothly with low CPU loading. DVI, VGA and HDMI outputs are provided
on the backplate. Alternatively the 16-lane PCI Express 2.0 slot can be
used to install high end graphics cards. Two additional 32-bit PCI
slots provide additional expansion capability.

Quality is at a premium with this mainboard, which uses
high-polymer solid electrolyte aluminium capacitors with extended
operating temperature range for high reliability. The advance power
control on this mainboard design provides stable operation for the
latest AMD AM3 processor families. Designed for low power consumption,
the board uses  ATI PowerPlay™ and AMD PowerNow™ 3.0 with Cool n’
Quiet technologies to give the maximum performance when needed, and
save power when it is not, thus delivering a superior “Green PC”

The PC-AM2RS785G joins the existing SAPPHIRE range of AMD compatible
mainboards which include the successful PURE Crossfire 790GX series and
the PURE Element 740G for the budget conscious. Details can be found in
