TR AM3+ Mobo Round Up

Postposted on Wed Aug 03, 2011 3:17 pm

Just wondering if there is one in the works, or at the very least a review of some of the AMD 990X motherboards?

You wrote the title in all caps. Stop that.

Such a roundup seems pointless to me until Bulldozer launches.

Bulldozer bench marks can go into the cpu section. I would like to see USB 3.0, sata-3 and other peripheral differences between the mobo's as well as fan speed control options, power consumption, bios options and stability tests.

All can be done with any phenom II, I mean most sites already tested out the 990FX mobo's.

At least then it would give users a good idea what mobo to get (ahead of time) if they want to go that way.

Well, here's a quick rundown of how it'll work for you:

USB 2.0 performance will be the same as any 800-series motherboard.
SATA performance will be the same as any SB850-based motherboard
USB 3.0 performance will be the same as any other motherboard that uses the same chipset (e.g. all ASUS USB3.0 boards use the same ASMedia controller so they're all identical)

There's just not anything interesting in the 900-series chipsets until the socket gets filled with something interesting.
I do not understand what I do. For what I want to do, I do not do. But what I hate, I do.

Indeed. However the gigabyte boards use Etron USB 3.0 and apparently don't have EUFI bios.

So there are some differences, whether they are major or not would require a review ;)

This.

Isn't the 800 series and 900 series the same silicon? Aside from the ability to run SLI on the 900 series (which is BS since it's the same chip) nothing has changed...
