Recently, motherboard manufacturers like Gigabyte, ECS and others have already revealed and introduced their AMD A75 Llano motherboards. Now Asus also announced two of its many AMD A75 Llano-based motherboards.

This two new Asus AMD A75 Llano motherboard are full-size ATX and is of the same kind, actually they look pretty much the same except for the third PCIE slot. The rest, they look pretty much the same. The first one is Asus F1A75-V PRO and the other one, which has more features compared to the first one, the Asus F1A75-V EVO.

See for yourself and spot the difference! Asus F1A75-V PRO vs Asus F1A75-V EVO:

Based on the picture above, the F1A75-V PRO has two x16 PCI Express Slot (one blue and one black), two x1 PCIE and three PCI slots. Unlike the F1A75-V EVO has three x16 PCI Express Slots (Blue, White and Black), two x1 PCIE and only 2 PCI Slots.

Both F1A75-V PRO and F1A75-V EVO have seven SATA ports, four headers for eight USB 2.0, one header for front USB 3.0 and a header for serial port. They both also have Asus EPU, TPU and MemOK button features. The back panel looks pretty much the same too, or rather IS 100% the same.

I do not see the logic why Asus is making “look-alike” motherboards. One has fewer features and the other has more features and they both look and feel the same. The down side I know, which I have personally experienced, is during RMA or when you returned the motherboard for warranty and they send you back a downgrade version of your motherboard which they thought it’s the same motherboard that you sent because they “look alike”.

It happened to me just recently when I sent my Asus M4A758TD-M EVO Socket AM3 DDR3 for RMA, and when they returned the motherboard they send an Asus M4A785D-M PRO a Socket AM2+ and DDR2 motherboard and looks 90% similar to my board. GRRRR!!

      #2! Woot! I would have not realized it if you did not comment me. I was not expecting it though. Just got lucky with the keyword maybe. But it seems not many people are searching for that keyword.

      Don’t you just hate it when there are second rate trying hard copy cat motherboards? hehe I was victimized!

  • What does the switch do on the Evo next to the CPU fan connector? It isn’t on the Pro one.
