MSI E350IA-E45: A Cheaper Brazos Arrives

28 March 2011
  • Excerpt: A few days back, we reviewed the Gigabyte Brazos platform – the E350N-USB3 , found it to be pretty good and an ideal solution as an HTPC board. MSI is another popular vendor in India which has started selling Brazos boards as well. Their E350IA-E45 model is next in line for review. As the model name suggest, the MSI E350IA-E45 is also powered by the same AMD E-Series 350 APU and the AMD Hudson controller, which means integrated USB 3.0 support thanks to the Renesas-NEC...

7 March 2011
  • Summary: Say a Core i3 with discrete graphics ala the Kick-ass (and super expensive) Asrock Vision 3D HTPC we reviewed last month. Or even a socketed AM3 processor part. That’s not to say the E350IA-E45 has no utility, but you need to calibrate your expectations. In the end, Fusion is clearly a better option than Atom with integrated graphics. It's not everything we wanted, but it's a good beginning.
  • Pros: Low power, low cost and eats most Atom boards for lunch
  • Cons: Could not boot to 3TB drive and perhaps a little off the power curve

  • Excerpt: This compact Mini-ITX motherboard integrates AMD's Fusion E-350 processor for near-silent operation. It's a great pick for a media-playing home-theater PC or a light-duty compact desktop.
  • Pros: Super-silent cooler on integrated APU, Loads of USB ports, Supports USB 3.0
  • Cons: No onboard Wi-Fi

Review: Placa-mãe MSI E350IA-E45 (MS-7698) com AMD Fusion

27 June 2011
  • Conclusion: O que esses números nos dizem é que o desempenho do E350IA-E45 não muda muito em relação ao que já tínhamos visto no Vaio Y , o que mostra uma certa consistência da plataforma Brazos independente da sua apresentação e formato. E com esses testes finalizados (e com mais um a caminho) acredito que temos uma visão mais clara do que podemos esperar dessa plataforma.
