The 6150M2MA-8EKRS2 is Foxconn's new motherboard solution for the upcoming AMD Socket M2 processors. Based on the NVIDIA GeForce 6150 chipset, this micro-ATX board offers on-board 3D graphics acceleration as well as a PCIe x16 graphics slot for future expansion. It comes with one PCIe x1 slot, two PCI slots, two SATA 3G RAID ports, 7.1-channel high definition audio, Gigabit Ethernet LAN and two IEEE 1394a ports.

The C51XEM2AA is also built for the next generation of AMD Socket M2 processors. This one's based on the NVIDIA C51XE paired with the MCP55. It offers dual graphics slots for SLI mode where both of them offer full x16 bandwidth. Other features include eSATA, S/PDIF in/out, IEEE 1394b (FireWire 800) and dual Gigabit Ethernet.

The new 946GZMA-RS2 micro-ATX motherboard is based on the Intel 946GZ chipset built for Intel's upcoming Conroe processors. This highly integrated board comes with built-in graphics as well as high definition audio based on the Realtek ALC861, Gigabit Ethernet LAN, four SATA 3G RAID ports and two IEEE 1394a ports. A similar version featuring Intel's 946PL chipset is available, except that the 946PL will require a discrete graphics card.

The new G9657MA-8EKRS2 motherboard is based on the new Intel G965 paired with the Intel ICH8R chip. It will support Intel's upcoming processors based on the Conroe family and it will feature eSATA, Gigabit Ethernet, IEEE 1394a and S/PDIF in/out. A similar board with the same layout and features will be available with the Q965 chipset.

The P9657AA-8EKRS2 is a full ATX motherboard based on the Intel P965 chipset. Paired with the ICH8R, the board offers four SATA 3G RAID ports, one PCIe x1 and two PCI slots. It also comes with a 7.1-channel high definition audio chip based on the Realtek ALC883H, one Gigabit Ethernet LAN port and two IEEE 1394a ports.
