Motherboard maker ECS - aka Elitegroup - has posted details of its first Socket AM2 mobo, a product based on ATI's as-yet-unannounced Radeon Xpress 1100 chipset. AMD is not expected to announced Socket AM2 until 23 May, when presumably ATI and Nvidia will unveil supporting chipsets.

The ATI product comprises the company's RS485 North Bridge and SB460 South Bridge, according to ECS' website. The RS485 has a Radeon X300-level integrated GPU and can use up to 256MB of main memory for its frame buffer.

The board itself - dubbed the RS485M-M - supports AMD's upcoming Socket AM2 single- and dual-core Athlon 64 and 64 FX processors and dual-channel configured 800MHz DDR 2 SDRAM - implying the new desktop chips will go one step beyond 667MHz memory. The mobo can be loaded with up to 16GB of RAM.

There's a single PCI Express x16 slot for a graphics card and a x1 slot for other devices. There are two old-style PCI slots. The board can host two parallel ATA 66/100/133 peripherals and four SATA units in RAID 0 or 1 configuration. Audio support comes courtesy of a Realtek ALC655 six-channel chip. ®
