AMD 880G Graphics Performance Review |

The SB850 Southbridge has featured on every AMD-8-series motherboard we’ve seen, as is the biggest change for AMD from its previous generation. It brings SATA 6Gbps, RAID 5 and a couple of extra USB ports to the party, as well as an unspecified reduction in power consumption due to its 65nm fabrication, rather than the dated 130nm process used for the SB 710 Southbridge. At least 50 per cent of 880G boards will use the SB710 in order to offer a range of prices and features, but it’s not as if the SB710 is underspecced for a budget build.
