The company officially announced today its new top-of-the-line 890GX chipset and Radeon HD 4290 integrated graphics, which together offer a broad range of support for speed- and visuals-enhancing technologies that may make properly equipped motherboards prime foundations for either home theater or high-end systems."</em></p><p><img src="http://images.thoughtsmedia.com/resizer/thumbs/size/600/wpt/auto/1267753764.usr486.jpg" style="border: 0;" /></p><p>With its built in Radeon HD 4290, Unified Video Decoder 2, and support for the latest AMD CPUs, these motherboards could be the basis for a nice home theater PC.&nbsp;SATA 3.0 is supported&nbsp;and USB 3.0 is an option for the motherboard manufacturers.&nbsp; If you need serious video performance 2 16 PCIe slots are included so you can pop in two higher end graphics cards.&nbsp; All in all, a nice option from anyone considering an AMD based system.</p>
