ASUS M4A79 Deluxe

ASUS M4A79 Deluxe @ Neoseeker

“Overall, The ASUS M4A79 Deluxe is a great board. It offers a good performance and in many occasions it was able to beat the MSI 790FX-GD70 which sports the same chipset but uses DDR3 memory instead of DDR2.”

Gigabyte GA-MA790GP-UD4H

“In terms of features, the Gigabyte GA-MA790GP UD4H motherboard has it all. It fully supports the new Phenom II CPUs on the market on the AM2+ Socket including the Phenom II X4 940 and Phenom II X3 710 CPUs we have in-house. The need for two AMD platforms is necessitated by the fact that the AM2+ CPUs do not work on AM3 motherboards meaning that to show the best performance; we need to use the fastest AM2+ CPU, the 940.”

“Overall, it was a joy working with the EX58-UD4P. Overclocking was simple, but it also has the capacity to get complex for hardcore users. This board is third behind the top of the line EX8-EXTREME, which is aimed for the top of the line market, but this board still puts up great numbers.”

“The Republic of Gamers or ROG based ASUS boards are what ASUS calls their cream of the crop boards; a lot of time and effort goes into them and so far all the boards we have tested under the ROG name have been impressive. However, none have been this small before; we are talking real small, MicroATX.”

DFI DK 790FXB-M3H5 vs MSI 790DX-GD70

DFI DK 790FXB-M3H5 vs MSI 790DX-GD70 @ MadShrimps

“Today, we have a look at two AMD AM3 motherboards, the first AMD DDR3 platform available for desktop users. Both DFI and MSI were kind enough to send us a sample of their most high-end product series, which will be tested both on performance and overclockability. We threw in a DDR2-based motherboard to find out whether or not the new memory support gives a true advantage.”

“We can only note that this motherboard is just as attractive to users as the previous model from ASUS with this chipset. Perhaps it’s a bit more interesting owing to its better integrated audio. In other respects, it has both pros and cons, too insignificant to affect your choice.”

Foxconn Quantum Force X58

“Foxconn is going to try with their latest addition to their high-end board sector (known as Quantum Force) for enthusiasts and overclockers with this one being called the Flaming Blade. Unfortunately there is no pricing available from Newegg yet, as this board is extremely new, so let’s hope its performance warrants the wait for it to arrive on the market.”

MSI 790FX-GD70

“One of the few boards with both DDR3 and full CrossFireX support is ASUS’ M4A79T Deluxe, which we briefly checked out in our initial look at the AMD AM3 Phenom II. Today, we’ll be examining the second DDR3 full CrossFireX capable AM3 board to hit our labs, the MSI 790FX-GD70, and we’ll be putting it up against the M4A79T, head-to-head to see how it stacks up.”

“Let’s take a look on G31MV-K, a low cost motherboard from Foxconn targeted to Intel socket 775 processors and based on Intel G31 chipset. Let’s see this motherboard features.”

ASUS P6T6 WS Revolution

“When X58 was first announced there were rumours about its graphics card support. Would it get SLI approval from NVIDIA and would it still support Crossfire? – Originally NVIDIA specified that X58 would need to use an nForce 200 PCIe bridge chip to run SLI, but a lot of pressure was put on NVIDIA from all of the motherboard companies and SLI support was granted to X58 through a native setup allowing two or three cards.”
