Asus M5A97 EVO Motherboard Review

10 December 2011
  • Excerpt: Before we get into this new board from Asus let me go over some of the primary features of the chipset. This board uses the AMD 970 and the SB950 chipset. With these boards the AMD 970 is the Northbridge and this handles all of the CPU and memory functions. On the Southbridge you have the AMD SB950 which handles all of the peripheral interfaces.

  • Excerpt: Prior to the launch of the new Sandy Bridge-E platform, we have to work our way through the AMD based boards we received. Today we're looking at the ASUS M5A97 Evo and this is one of the more interesting boards we've looked at due to the fact it carries with it a price tag of only $119 US.

Asus M5A97 EVO Motherboard Review

  • Conclusion: Good board with good software. Brings more value (and heat, and in some cases…….noise) to my system by overclocking the processor. I was impressed not only by that 3.3ghz to 3.9ghz jump, I’m also impressed that it’s not a LOUSY overclock. The overclocked state of the processor not only managed to work flawlessly on folding@home but it even passed wPrime v1.55 1024M stability test!

ASUS M5A97 EVO AM3+

8 June 2011
  • Summary: We really had a hard time forming any opinion about the ASUS M5A97 EVO, until we considered the price. Our testing showed low numbers when compared with other recent products, but this was largely influenced by the CPU used, a rather old 45nm chip, while the others are 32nm. We do see a lot of potential in the M5A97 EVO; the BIOS, software, and VRM are all very robust, but at the same time, we do know that ASUS has spent a lot of time focusing on these critical areas.
  • Pros: Packed with added features not seen on some other products in the same price range, Clean, color-themed and traditional layout, EFI bios with support for 3TB+ drives, Fully functional UEFI BIOS, including screen capture and mouse support, VRM capable of at least 275W, near double AMD CPU TDPs., Fully functional software package offers everything available in BIOS for overclocking, and a bit more
  • Cons: Lack of an included accessory to make use of the USB 3.0 front panel header, and only 3 SATA cables in the box., Crossfire limited to x16/x4 connectivity, Under-performing USB 3.0 controller

  • Excerpt: Пожалуй, наиболее заметным, а может, и единственным техническим достоинством платформы AMD над Intel является использование более-менее одинаковых процессорных гнезд для всех десктопных кристаллов. Как мы знаем, практически каждое новое семейство процессоров Intel рассчитано на свой собственный сокет, совершенно несовместимый с предыдущими.

  • Conclusion: Sonuçta karar kullanıcının. Çoklu grafik kartı kullanımı dışında performans anlamında 990 ve 970 yonga setli anakartlar arasında fark göremeyeceğinizi tekrar hatırlatalım.

  • Excerpt: Недавно выпущенная на глобальный рынок тайваньским производителем системная плата ASUS M5A97 EVO представляет собой полноразмерный продукт начального уровня, оснащённый новым чипсетом AMD970.
