In April we had looked at the ECS A780GM-A v1.0 motherboard, which boasted AMD's new Radeon HD 3200 graphics. For being an integrated graphics solution, we were certainly pleased with the performance, as it had performed about the same as the discrete Radeon HD 2400PRO. With the success of the AMD 780G Chipset, we have decided to look at another one of these motherboards. This time around we are looking at the ASRock A780FullDisplayPort, which as the name implies it offers a DisplayPort connection for the integrated graphics.

With ASRock packaging, there really isn't much to see or talk about. Their packaging and accessories have remained consistently the same for several years now (with very few exceptions), but what has also remained in place has been their low prices on these motherboards. The ASRock A780FullDisplayPort had shipped with two driver CDs, user manual, I/O panel, 4-pin molex to SATA power adapter, one Serial ATA data cable, one DVI to HDMI adapter, one ribbon FDD cable, one ribbon IDE cable, and the DisplayPort card.
