Asus M5 A99X EVO Motherboard Review

5 January 2012
  • Excerpt: AMD has just released their new AM3+ socket and accompanying chipset. These new products are to make use of the new AM3+ processors when they become available. We have already looked at several offerings in the 990FX category so we now need to understand what makes the 990X different. The main difference is that the 990X has less PCI express lanes for graphics card expansion.

Asus M5A99X Evo Review

12 December 2011
  • Excerpt: To be honest, between Z68 this and Sandy Bridge that, we haven’t had much time to check out AMD's latest motherboard offerings. It’s not that we don’t care; it’s just that the fire is burning on the other side of the fence these days. That’s not to say that the 990X chipset in Asus’s midrange M5A99X Evo is a slouch. As a real AM3+ board, it’s guaranteed to work with the upcoming Bulldozer line of CPUs from AMD.
  • Pros: USB 3.0; SLI as well as CrossFire; UEFI
  • Cons: PCIe slots limited to x8 speed when running dual videocards.

  • Summary: Not since the AMD 700 series has there been a non-integrated graphics chipset available that supports dual video cards without ponying up for the top of the line FX platform. The 990X fills a void left vacated by aging 790X boards, offering compatibility with the new AM3+ processors, latest DDR3-1866 memory speed, and both CrossFireX and SLI support.

  • Excerpt: At the end of last month during Computex we saw the AMD 990FX chipset launch which brought with it some strong features. One of the more appealing ones was that it supports the new Bulldozer CPUs that are due out later this year. Because AMD aren't changing the socket, though, for the first generation of Bulldozer we can have boards now that support it while also supporting the current crop of CPUs from AMD.

ASUS M5A99X EVO AM3+

techPowerUp!
16 June 2011
  • Summary: After spending several days with the ASUS M5A99X EVO, we walked away feeling quite impressed. Although there is a significant jump in pricing from the M5A97 EVO to the M5A99X EVO, we found that cost is nearly justified, for several reasons, but we're not sure if there is $60 worth of extras. First of all, the extra PCIe expansion and SATA connectivity options stand out, and the lowered overall power consumption adds some as well.
  • 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 275W, near double AMD CPU TDPs., Fully functional software package offers everything available in BIOS for overclocking, and a bit more, First AMD chipset to support SLI
  • Cons: Lack of an included accessory to make use of the USB 3.0 front panel header, and only four SATA cables in the box., Crossfire limited to x8/x8 connectivity, Under-performing USB 3.0 controller

  • Conclusion: Llegando al final de esta revisión en sí nos deja un muy buen sabor de boca esta tarjeta madre, ya que aunque el procesador FX Bulldozer no es el monstruo que se esperaba, vemos que si es muy superior tanto en pruebas sintéticas como en reales a su predecesor Phenom II X6 Thuban, Logrando números muy superiores contra tarjetas madre con Chipsets 890FX y 990FX.

Asus M5A99X EVO: L'anello di congiunzione

insidehardware.it
22 February 2012
  • Conclusion: La M5A99x EVO, si è dimostrata nei fatti una soluzione interessante e competitiva sotto diversi punti di vista. Se da una parte packaging e la dotazione a corredo, tradiscono la natura "economica" del prodotto, dobbiamo riconoscere al produttore, la volontà di risparmiare principalmente sugli aspetti "di contorno" rispetto alle caratteristiche intrinseche della scheda.
