The Photo Gallery
On the next few pages we'll show you some photos. The images were taken at 2560x1920 pixels and then scaled down. The camera used was a Sony DCS-F707.
Top view, here we see the Jetway M2A692-GDG mainboard. Quite a colorful little thing isn't it? Actually pretty to look at. Layout wise everything was placed on the right position except the CMOS clear jumper. You'll need to remove your graphics card (if you use one) in order to be able to reach it. That's no biggy though. Furthermore the mainboard makes a sturdy impression and seems to be built out of good quality components.
Back panel connectivity: PS/2 Keyboard and Mouse, 4 USB ports, 1 VGA, 1 DVI, 1 x GbE LAN port and 8 channel audio ports.
Box shot, slightly misleading. There are stickers on there which make you think this mobo has dual GIGe, which is indeed slightly misleading.
There it is, socket AM2 compatible with the latest batch of AMD processors.
Jetway has jumped on the Mini HTPC market with their new and quite funky looking Mini-TOP. In its bare essence this pretty much a tiny PC that is armed with an Atom D525 Processor clocked at 1.80GHz and then combined with a NVIDIA's ION2 GPU / chipset implementation to make the most out of a typically very limited environment.
Jetway M2A692-GDG 690G mainboard review
Jetway recently released a AMD 690G chipset based mainboard. And as the previous Jetway review revealed .. they offer a lot for very little money. Today we'll show you once again a great little mainboard that will give you heaps of performance and functionality at a top dollar pricing level.
