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.

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.

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...
