The ECS A790GXM-AD3 is an interesting product for a few reasons, and the main being that it is very much a no frills product. This is interesting because we are trying to work out if a no frills product has any business in the AM3 world. In fact, at this point we are still trying to decide if there is any point to the AM3 world at all.

The ECS A790GXM-AD3, like its DDR2 kin, comes packaged in the standard "Black Series" black and green packaging. On the front of the box is the dragon mascot with the model number surrounded by tribal designs. There are some logos for the features that the motherboard supports. Flipping the box over there is a small picture of the board so you can get an idea of the layout prior to purchasing it. There are also some highlights on the main features the A790GXM-AD3 has, as well as logos for supported hardware.

With a successful launch of Phenom II processors, AMD has now started to further improve their chip design and overall performance. Squeeze more performance out of them, reach higher clock-frequencies, yeah the truth is, it isn't looking so bad anymore, no sir. I think roughly half of the PCs in my office alone are Phenom II based computers. I like the price, and I certainly like the performance very much, plus they are very energy efficient with the AMD 790 chipset.

"A790GXM-AD3 is the socket AM3 version from A790GXM-A, which we have already reviewed. It is an ATX-sized motherboard with on-board video based on AMD790GX chipset featuring two x16 PCI Express slots, HDMI output and other interesting features. Let's take a look on this motherboard. A790GXM-A, however, features a dedicated 128 MB on-board video memory in order to increase gaming performance (feature called "Side Port"), which is not present on A790GXM-AD3."
