So far, Biostar has released three motherboard models based on the AMD A75 chipset for the new AMD A-Series of CPUs with integrated graphics chip (“APUs”): the TA75A+, a full ATX model; the TA75M+ and the TA75M, which are microATX models. Let’s take a look at the full ATX model.
AMD released two chipsets for the new socket FM1 platform: the A55 and the A75. Both are single-chip solutions. The A55 is an entry-level solution, supporting six SATA-300 ports, 14 USB 2.0 ports, and four x1 PCI Express lanes. The A75 is a high-end solution, with six SATA-600 ports, four USB 3.0 ports (making it the first chipset with an integrated USB 3.0 controller), eSATA port multiplier (“FIS-based switching,” which allows you to install more than one hard drive to a single SATA port), and the other features found on the A55.

As mentioned, the Biostar TA75A+ motherboard uses the ATX form factor.
