Introduction of AMD 690G/690V Motherboard Series
1-1
Features of motherboard
The AMD 690G/690V Series motherboards are based on the latest AMD 690G/690V Chipset
and SB600 chipset which supports the new generation innovative 64-bit AMD Socket AM2
dual core multi-tasking Socket AM2 Athlon64 X2 processors and dual core AMD Phenom™
processors. With an integrated low-latency high-bandwidth DDR2 memory controller and the
highly-scalable Hyper Transport technology-based system bus which is up to 1000 MHZ,
AMD 690G/690V Platform Processor Chipset motherboard series deliver the outstanding system
performance and professional desktop platform solution with the advantages of new
generation 64-bit AMD Socket AM2 Athlon64 X2 processors, AMD Phenom™ processors
and the fully compatibility of the next generation operation system.
The AMD 690G/690V Series motherboards support new generation Socket AM2 processors
with an integrated DDR2 memory controller which provides with 266MHz / 333MHz/
400MHz memory clock frequency for Dual channel DDR2 533 / DDR2 667 / DDR2 800
(Sempron processor of AM2 socket only supports up DDR2 667) DDR2 Module up to 8.0GB.
The whole motherboard series are embedded with SB600 chipset that provides ULTRA ATA
133 connectors and Serial ATA2 with RAID 0, 1 and RAID 10 functions which support up to
two IDE devices and four Serial ATA2 devices to accelerate hard disk drives and guarantee
the data security without failure in advanced computing performance.
The AMD 690V Chipset incorporates ATI Radeon X1200 Graphics with a core frequency of 400
MHz and 2 shader pipeline featured with DirectX 9.0 compliant 2D/3D graphics processor ,
Maximum DAC frequency of 400 MHz Resolution up to 2560x1600 (Under condition), refresh
rate up to 85MHz delivering incredible graphics and blistering performance. Besides, the
AMD 690G Series motherboards integrated ATI Radeon X1250 Graphics support ATI
innovated AVIVO Technology and Multiple Display configurations: CRT+ DVI-D or HDMI on
rear panel and give you the best performance in game experience. AMD™ 690G/690V chipset
provides incredible flexibility and unlimited upgrade potential as it supports all Radeon®
PCI – E graphics cards on a system configured for either single GPU or next generation
multimedia operation. Designed with ATI’s unique architecture to optimize speed and
stability, this solution is perfect for overclocking – without the need of additional cooling
systems.
The 690V /690G series motherboards provide optional 10/100 or 10/100/1000 LAN functions
with Realtek RTL8101E-GR PCI-E 10/100 LAN or RTL8111B-GR PCI-E Gigabit LAN
which supports 10/100Mbps or 10/100/1000 Mbps data transfer rate. And the embedded
optional Azalia 6-channel and 8-channel HD Audio CODEC is fully compatible with Sound
Blaster Pro® standards that offer you with the home cinema quality and satisfying software
compatibility.
The motherboards offer one PCI-Express x16 graphics slot of 4Gbyte/sec data transfer rate at
each relative direction which gets 3.5 times of bandwidth more than AGP 8X and it’s up to a
peak concurrent bandwidth of 8Gbyte/sec at full speed to guarantee the ultimate GPU
computing performance. Two 32-bit PCI slots guarantee the rich connectivity for the I/O of
1
peripherals; the motherboards are designed of tackling the profuse multimedia requirements
nowadays.
Embedded USB controller as well as capability of expanding to 8 of USB2.0 functional ports
delivering 480Mb/s bandwidth and rich connectivity, these motherboards meet the future
USB demands which are also equipped with hardware monitor function on system to monitor
and protect your system and maintain your non-stop business computing.
Some special features---CPU Thermal Throttling/ CPU Vcore 7-shift / CPU Smart Fan this
motherboard are designed for power user to use the over-clocking function in more flexible ways. But
please be caution that the over-clocking maybe cause the fails in system reliabilities. This motherboard
provides the guaranteed performance and meets the demands of the next generation computing. But if
you insist to gain more system performance with variety possibilities of the components you choose,
please be careful and make sure to read the detailed descriptions of these value added product features,
please get them in the coming section.
1-1.1 Special Features of Motherboard
CPU Smart Fan---( The Noise Management System(Only support 4-pin CPU cooler))
It’s never been a good idea to gain the performance of your system by sacrificing its acoustics. CPU Smart
Fan Noise Management System is the answer to control the noise level needed for now-a-day’s high
performance computing system. The system will automatically increase the fan speed when CPU operating
loading is high, after the CPU is in normal operating condition, the system will low down the fan speed for
the silent operating environment. The system can provide the much longer life cycle for both CPU and the
system fans for game use and business requirements.
CPU Vcore 7-Shift--- (Shift to Higher Performance)
The CPU voltage can be adjusted up by 13 steps for the precisely over-clocking of extra demanding
computing performance.
CPU Thermal Throttling Technology---(The CPU Overheat Protection Technology)
To prevent the increasing heat from damage of CPU or accidental shutdown while at high workload, the
CPU Thermal Throttling Technology will force CPU to enter partially idle mode from 87.5% to 12.5%
according to preset CPU operating temperature in BIOS (from 40℃ to 90℃). When the system senses the
CPU operating temperature reaching the preset value, the CPU operating bandwidth will be decreased to
the preset idle percentage to cool down the processor. When at throttling mode the beeper sound can be
optionally selected to indicate it is in working.

Hardware Installation
2-1 Install Socket AM2 /Socket AM2+ Supported AMD
Processor
This motherboard provides a 940-pin surface mount, Zero Insertion Force (ZIF) socket,
referred to as the mPGA940 socket supports AMD Athlon64 processor in the 940 Pin package
utilizes Flip-Chip Pin Grid Array package technology.
The CPU that comes with the motherboard should have a cooling FAN attached to prevent
overheating. If this is not the case, then purchase a correct cooling FAN before you turn on
your system.
WARNING!
Be sure that there is sufficient air circulation across the processor’s
heatsink and CPU cooling FAN is working correctly, otherwise it may
cause the processor and motherboard overheat and damage, you may install
an auxiliary cooling FAN, if necessary.
To install a CPU, first turn off your system and remove its cover. Locate the ZIF socket and
open it by first pulling the level sideways away from the socket then upward to a 90-degree
angle. Insert the CPU with the correct orientation as shown below. The notched corner
should point toward the end of the level. Because the CPU has a corner pin for two of the
four corners, the CPU will only fit in the orientation as shown.

Colden Arrow
CPU ZIF mPGAB Socket
When you put the CPU into the ZIF socket, No force require to insert of the CPU, then press
the level to Locate position slightly without any extra force.

USEFUL HELP
4-1 HOW TO UPDATE BIOS
Before updating the BIOS, users have to “Disable” the “Flash Part Write Protect” selection in
“Miscellaneous Control” of BIOS SETUP. Otherwise the system the will not allow you to upgrade
BIOS by Award Flash Utility.
STEP 1. Prepare a boot disc. (you may make one by click START click RUN type SYS A:click OK)
STEP 2. Copy utility program to your boot disc. You may copy from DRIVER CD
X:\FLASH\AWDFLASH.EXE or download from our web site.
STEP 3. Download and make a copy of the latest BIOS for AMD690X PPC motherboard series
from the web site to your boot disc.
STEP 4. Insert your boot disc into A:,
start the computer, type “Awdflash A:\ AMD690X.BIN /SN/PY/CC/R”
AMD690X xxx.BIN is the file name of latest BIOS it can be AMD690Xa.BIN or
