ASRock FM2A85X Extreme6 Motherboard Review

6 February 2013
  • Conclusion: It’s nice to see the FM2 platform motherboards maturing, and the ASRock FM2A85X Extreme6 is a testament to that process. Given the fact that this board will overclock (up to 4.6 GHz) with the memory set to 2400 MHz, it’s at the top of FM2 platform boards I have reviewed so far. Even at 4.8 GHz, the memory was still able to run at 2133 MHz, which matches the previous best obtained with the Sapphire A85XT.

ASRock FM2A85X Extreme6 for AMD Socket FM2 APUs

30 January 2013
  • Summary: When it comes to FM2, ASRock provides a pretty good feature set, a pretty good BIOS, and decent performance. Other than that, there's not really a lot to say here. As a high-end product for a value platform, it hits the mark and then some. One of the biggest things for me is the addition of ASRock's "XFast 555" suite of software, which features "XFast RAM".
  • Pros: VRM and BIOS ready to overclock., Inclusion of XFast 555 Software gives the ASRock FM2A85X Extreme6 a leg above the rest., Good audio rendering, Full-ATX Expansion capabilities, Simple color scheme that can easily match other components well., Fully functional AMI UEFI BIOS that includes mouse support and support for 3 TB+ drives.
  • Cons: Overclock designs on APU platform lead to limited performance gains., Auto overclocking profiles and XMP settings interfere with manual adjustments., No SLI support.

  • Summary: I think the first thing we have to talk about before we go anywhere is the overclocking side of things. When it comes to the manual overclocking side, performance wasn't as strong as we had both hoped or expected. We thought we'd be closer to 4.5GHz mark that we saw on the GIGABYTE offering, but you can see today, we're about 200MHz shy of that number.

  • Excerpt: The Trinity line of APU’s from AMD have shown us that it is possible to have respectable CPU and GPU performance all in one chip. Along with that you get low power consumption and a low price to boot. But as we have shown in our recent ECS FM2 motherboard review, these Trinity chips also have a little something for the enthusiast as well.

ASRock FM2A85X Extreme6 Review

3 December 2012
  • Conclusion: The ASRock board is aimed squarely at the middle of the pack for FM2-A85X motherboards, sitting near the cheaper side of middle in the $80 to $140 range at $100.  This means the ASRock FM2A85X Extreme6 is $40 less than the ASUS F2A85-V Pro board, which actually takes up the role as the most expensive FM2 motherboard on Newegg at the time of writing.  Despite this, the ASRock motherboard seems to trade blows with the ASUS motherboard in terms of performance quite well.

Тест и обзор: ASRock FM2A85X Extreme6 -...

26 March 2013
  • Summary: ASRock в виде FM2A85X Extreme6 смогла выпустить на рынок весьма удачную материнскую плату Socket FM2. Она обеспечивает приличный набор функций, имеет хорошее качество изготовления, а также может похвастаться очень хорошим разгоном APU и памяти. В частности, последний аспект производитель подчёркивает, заявляя о мировом рекорде разгона AMD A10-5800K APU до частоты 7,93069 ГГц - именно на этой модели.
  • Pros: Хорошая производительность с мощной подсистемой питания CPU и множеством функций разгона, Привлекательный набор функций, включая семь портов SATA 6G, один порт eSATA 6G и шесть портов USB 3.0, Хорошая производительность в целом и хорошая стабильность, Поддержка конфигурации CrossFireX на трёх видеокартах AMD
  • Cons: Сильный нагрев стабилизаторов напряжения, Чуть более высокое энергопотребление в режиме бездействия

ASRock FM2A85X Extreme6: Trinity fino all'ultimo MHz

22 March 2013
  • Conclusion: Pochi giorni fa ci siamo trovati a parlare delle novità introdotte da AMD con le APU Trinity, incrociando inevitabilmente l'A85x, nuovo chipset di riferimento per il relativo socket FM2, di cui è equipaggiata la FM2A85X Extreme6 di ASRock qui analizzata. L'avvento delle nuove APU e del nuovo chipset ha portato sul mercato un insieme di migliorie, che aldilà delle mere prestazioni finali, anch'esse incrementate, consente all'utente medio di fruire di features e tecnologie...
