The Gigabyte GA-F2A68HM-HD2 Micro-ATX Motherboard features an FM2+ socket to support AMD's A and Athlon series of Accelerated Processing Units, which combine the power of a multicore processor and Radeon graphics technology. Once a 4K-capable APU is installed, this motherboard delivers a resolution of 4096 x 2160 to a display via an HDMI port and can also connect with other D-sub and DVI-D compatible monitors for extending your on-screen workspace. When more graphics performance is needed, you can add a dedicated graphics card to the PCIe 3.0 x16 slot and utilize the processing power of both dedicated and integrated processors with an AMD A-series APU. Furthermore, this micro-ATX form factor motherboard allows you to install it inside a small-sized computer case that can fit in your entertainment center to be used as a multimedia PC.

This motherboard offers two DIMM sockets that can accept DDR3 memory modules up to 2400 MHz for quickly accessing short-term data and running multiple applications simultaneously. For long-term data storage, you can connect SSDs and hard drives to the four SATA III 6 Gb/s ports. Additionally, this motherboard lets you connect to other peripherals and devices using two USB 3.0 and four USB 2.0 ports. To complete the multimedia experience, it is equipped with a Realtek ALC887 audio codec along with three audio ports. Moreover, you can access a network via a RJ-45 port and the integrated Realtek Gigabit LAN chip to stream online-videos. In addition to the motherboard, Gigabyte includes two SATA cables as well as an I/O shield.
Audio Capacitors
Gigabyte Ultra Durable motherboards use Nippon Chemicon ARE series audio capacitors that deliver sound resolution and sound expansion for creating realistic sound effects.
Dedicated Audio Hardware Zone
This motherboard separates the PCB layer to protect its sensitive audio components. Additionally, separate analog and digital groundings protect against electromagnetic interference (EMI).
Solid Capacitors
Solid capacitors are used for the APU, VRM, and Low RDS(on) MOSFETs, which are rated to work at higher temperatures to provide a longer lifespan.
UEFI DualBIOS
Two BIOS chips protect your computer from BIOS failure due to virus attack, hardware malfunction, improper OC setting, or power failure during the update process.
Humidity Protection
The Glass Fabric PCB design helps protect against electrical shorts due to humidity by reducing the spacing between PCB filaments.
Power Failure and Electrostatic Protection
Anti-Surge ICs help protect the motherboard against power surges and High Resistance ICs against electrostatic discharge.
Gigabyte FM2+
The AMD FM2+ socket is designed to get the most from AMD Kaveri APUs, while preserving compatibility for current AMD FM2 APUs. This socket offers native support for 8 GT/s PCI Express gen 3.0 as well as DX11.1 support. Based on AMD A68H chipset, native USB 3.0 and SATA III ports support up to 5 Gb/s and 6 Gb/s of data transfer speeds, respectively.
AMD Dual Graphics Technology
The AMD FM2+ series platform showcases AMD Dual Graphics technology, allowing users to further boost 3D graphics performance by adding an additional discrete AMD Radeon graphics card to the system. This unique Dual Graphics technology means users can enjoy higher frame rates when playing games by utilizing the processing power of both discrete and integrated graphics processors.
AMD Eyefinity Technology
AMD Eyefinity technology allows you to extend your on-screen workspace onto three high-resolution digital displays for enhanced productivity, plus enjoying panoramic views.
Dual-Link DVI Port
Designed to leverage the potential of AMD's Fusion A-series APUs, Gigabyte motherboards feature DX11 gaming and smooth HD multimedia playback as well as support for high resolution displays of up to 2560 x 1600 pixels utilizing the Dual-link DVI port.
HDMI
The High-Definition Multimedia Interface port is able to provide up to 5 Gb/s of video bandwidth and 7.1-channel high quality audio. By transmitting uncompressed digital data, HDMI is able to reduce the interference between the digital and analog signals directly from the source. In addition, HDMI is compatible with HDCP (High-bandwidth Digital Content Protection), which allows playback of Blu-ray/ HD DVD and other protected contents.
4K Ultra HD Support
This motherboard and FM2+ APU integrated graphics provide native 4K support via the HDMI port, which offers four times more pixel density than standard HD.
On/Off Charge Technology
The USB ports on the motherboard allow you to charge your iPhone, iPad, and iPod Touch regardless of whether your PC is on, in standby mode, or even off. On/Off Charge technology enables devices to draw more current from these USB ports than standard USB ports allow, which can charge your device just as fast as with a charger.
ErP Lot 6 support
Energy-Related Products Directive is part of the European Union's environmental regulations policy. It is based on concern for the environment as the proliferation of electronic devices continues, and how to improve energy efficiency for a better and greener life. Gigabyte supports ErP and produces motherboards that help you improve system efficiency.
Bundled Software
Norton Internet Security (OEM version): Provides protection for your system against malware, viruses, and more.
Additional Features
Support for @BIOS
Support for Q-Flash
Support for Xpress Install
Support for EasyTune
Support for Smart Recovery 2
