  • Excerpt: While a massive company, ECS doesn't have the brightest name when it comes to the more mainstream retail segment. Talking to a motherboard manufacturer the other week, I heard something very interesting. They mentioned that ECS actually makes some fantastic motherboards and the quality of the components they use are excellent. But they're let down when it comes to the BIOS side of things. It's something we'd have to totally agree with from past experience.

ECS A85F2-A Golden for AMD Socket FM2 APUs

techPowerUp!
22 February 2013
  • Summary: ECS has quite a few "high-end" products now, and they definitely offer something different. When I look at them, I get the same feeling as when looking at a little baby playing with some blocks, all cute and innocent. Each has something that it will do better than the one next to it, and every once in a while, you get one that does it all. Unfortunately, the ECS A85F2-A Golden only does one thing really well and that's clocking the CPU portion of my APU.
  • Pros: Great "out-of-the-box" CPU performance, Excellent layout for slots and ports, New UEFI BIOS, Support for 3TB+ drives
  • Cons: Limited overclocking ability, Not all BIOS options working fully, Mediocre drive performance, No BIOS screenshot ability

ECS A85F2-A Golden motherboard review

The Guru of 3D
27 January 2013
  • Summary: The conclusion of this article will be much like many of our other APU and APU related motherboard reviews. PCs based upon these APUs are low-end / entry level products. They offer okay CPU performance versus really good integrated GPU performance. And this I've stated before as well, being entry-level product based I am a little surprised to see motherboard manufacturers jump onto A85 as much as they do. Honestly I expected simple motherboards.

ECS A85F2-A Golden Review: All That Glitters

AnandTech
12 January 2013
  • Conclusion: As part of the research that goes into a review, it is not uncommon to look around the internet to see what people are saying about a product – both end users and other reviewers alike.  I noticed a sizeable number of reports relating to the looks (I will be honest, a golden colored motherboard is different to the norm and well worth pointing out) rather than the underlying meat of the product itself, especially when it comes to usability, performance, and actually...

  • Excerpt: With AMD’s recent APU’s we get good performance at a great price while keeping power consumption low. With all of these advances aimed at the “casual user”, many people may not realize that enthusiasts can enjoy them too.

  • Conclusion: Beyond that the heatsinks on the motherboard are also gold plated, although their ability to dissipate heat faster than copper or aluminum is moot. The ECS A85F2-A Golden is also one of the first motherboards to support AMD Memory Profile, giving you the chance to really exploit AMD branded memory modules.

Тест и обзор: ECS A85F2-A Golden - Black Extreme

26 March 2013
  • Summary: Как можно видеть, ECS прикладывает все силы, чтобы остаться на рынке, поэтому компания предлагает свои модели и для сокетов Intel, и для AMD. Но ECS пришлось бороться со старой проблемой: высоким энергопотреблением. Наши тесты вновь показали, что материнская плата ECS потребляла слишком много энергии под нагрузкой. Сегодня, когда многие пользователи задумываются об экологии и счетах за электричество, тема энергопотребления весьма актуальна.
  • Pros: Хорошая производительность с достаточным питанием CPU и функциями разгона, Адекватное оснащение, включая шесть портов USB 3.0, семь портов SATA 6G и порт eSATA 6G, Хорошая производительность в целом и хорошая стабильность
  • Cons: Пока не появилась в продаже, Высокое энергопотребление под нагрузкой

Test: ECS A85F2-A Golden - Black Extreme

Hardwareluxx
24 January 2013
  • Summary: Man merkt, dass ECS alles versucht, um am Ball zu bleiben und lässt auch kaum einen Sockel aus, weder von Intel noch von AMD. Weiterhin jedoch hat ECS mit einem Problem zu kämpfen, das auch in vergangenen Tests vorhanden war: Die Leistungsaufnahme. Unsere Tests haben erneut gezeigt, dass auch diese ECS-Platine unter Last schlicht zu viel verbraucht.
  • Pros: gute Leistungsfähigkeit mit ausreichender CPU-Spannungsversorgung und ausreichenden Overclocking-Funktionen, adäquate Ausstattung, u.a. sechs USB-3.0-Anschlüsse, sieben SATA-6G-Schnittstellen und ein eSATA-6G-Port, gute Gesamtperformance und sehr gute Stabilität
  • Cons: kein regulärer Preis vorhanden, hohe Leistungsaufnahme unter Last
