Lately PCWizKid has been able to review various AMD CPU's and today we take a look at the AMD Athlon II X4 640 CPU on the new Jetway HZ03 Micro-ATX Motherboard. The Jetway HZ03 board aft first looks has a terrific layout with excellent heatsink cooling on board. The colour co-ordination is blue and black and the board layout is also good. The quality of the capacitors are excellent and the rear I/O ports are complete with all the main features. The important aspect about the HZ03 is that this is a budget board that uses the new AMD 880G north bridge chipset and the older SB710 chipset. The new AMD 880G chipset is based on Radeon HD 4250 graphics engine, which is a slower version of the graphics engine used on AMD 890GX (Radeon HD 4290). This way 880G-based motherboards are cheaper than 890GX boards.AMD 880G chipset is normally paired with AMD SB710 south bridge chip which does not support natively the SATA 3 ports but SATA 2 instead.
In the table below we provide a comparison between AMD 880G and other chipsets with integrated graphics from AMD.

Conclusion - PCWizKid's Product Score 7/10
The HZ03 from Jetway turns out to be an interesting little board with support and features for the budget PC. Definitely while not a high end expensive board it has the support for the latest mainstream AM3 CPU's such as the Athlon II X4 640 we tested or the latest Phenom II's X4's making this a good choice if you want a basic board for an HTP or the office. If you are looking to get more than SATA 2.0 and want the latest SATA 3 or maybe firewire, this board does not have that. However it was very nice to see a solid construction and high quality durable components on this budget board. While the BIOS features were capable of allowing overclocking, the options could be improved for more advanced users seeking to tweak their system even further. Overall Jetway has made a good product for the price point of under $80 USD.
