ASRock launches Socket 939 785G board

2004 revisited


We thought
AMD's Socket 939 was dead as a doornail, but believe it or not ASRock has just launched a brand new 939 board based on AMD's 785G chipset.

The board features 4 DDR slots, 1 PCIe x16, 1x PCIe x1, 2x PCI slots, Gigabit LAN, 7.1 audio, 6 USBs, 5 SATA II connectors and even serial and parallel ports, to go with the retro theme. Thanks to ATI's HD 4200 graphics with 128MB of SidePort memory, the ASRock 939A785GMH/128M features HDMI, DVI and VGA connectors.

Of course, we're not suggesting you go out and buy one for the sake of reliving the good old times. However, thanks to the 785G chipset and HDMI out, this dinosaur could be a rather interesting catch for anyone with old hardware laying about. Even an old K8 coupled with HD 4200 graphics could make for a quite nice HTPC and beat any Atom senseless, especially if you factor in the rather affordable price.

You can get it here, for just over €55.
