  • Summary: It is a surprise move by ASRock to use VIA chipset for its AM2 board. As usual, ASRock wouldn't go for it if there aren't treasures hidden in the CF stepping chipset. As you can see from the benchmarks, the performance is almost on par with the other two platforms using high end chispets NV 590 SLI and ATi RD 580. In our overclocking test, we set the HT multiplier to 4x (800MHz) and set the CPU multiplier to 10x, CPU Vcore to 1.4v and push the CPU CLK to 280MHz.
  • Pros: Hot Plug SATA, Open ended PCIe x4 slot
  • Cons: No SATA II, No GBE, No eSATA, No 1394

ASRock AM2V890-VSTA (VIA K8T890 CF)

  • Conclusion: ASRock is well known to veer away from new and high-end chipsets for their motherboard products, opting instead to deliver capable entry-level solutions on older or existing core logic solutions without sacrificing too much on the performance front or even features. This has proven to be quite a successful combination and we've had the opportunity to test a few such boards from ASRock like the 939Dual-SATA2 and 775XFire-eSATA2. Sadly, the AM2V890-VSTA falls off the mark.
