MSI E350IA-E45 Motherboard Review
A couple of weeks ago at CES AMD launched their Fusion APU, their first product to combine a CPU and GPU on the same chip. Initial models are aimed at the mainstream and budget markets and were accompanied by announcements from various manufacturers of motherboards which support the new "APU" and Hudson M1 chipset.
One of the first manufacturers to announce their APU based system was MSI and today we have that very product, the E350IA-E45, on our test bench. In a selection of predominantly real world tests including media encoding, gaming and HD playback we will look at the performance of the new platform and find out who the consumers are who will benefit most from the first Fusion models.
