AMD Bolton Power Consumption Just 7.8 Watts

We’ve just reported on AMD’s Richland APU here and now it seems some information about the supporting chipset has surfaced on the internet. The new chipset will use only 7.8 watts and will bring RAID 0, 1, 5 and 10 support to the FM2 platform.

We’ve also reported here that AMD’s Richland will be compatible with the current FM2 socked, but hardware experts at Fudzilla.com has uncovered some more info about the new chipsets AMD will be launching next year. The FM2 platform will be somewhat renewed with the Bolton FCH. In AMD talk, FCH is short for Fusion Controller HUB, as Fudzilla report.

AMD’s next generation chipset will consume exactly the same amount today’s A75 chipset uses and will pack 4 USB 3.0 ports, 14 USB 2.0 ports and 8 SATA III connectors. CrossFire support is still there and the users will be able to match a modest video card with the HD 7000 iGPU inside AMD’s Richland.
