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...
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.
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.

Conclusion: Yaptığımız sentetik testlerin, son kullanıcı için genelde seçicilik konusunda yardımcı olduğu yadırganamaz. Ancak testler arasında ortaya çıkan farklar, günlük kullanımlarda hissedilmeyecek kadar az. FX 8120, kıyaslandığı Intel rakibine oranla 144$ daha ucuz.
Summary: Es ist nicht das erste bulldozerbasierende Mainboard aus dem Hause Asus in unserem Testlabor. Bei unserem im Test befindlichen M5A99X-EVO geht es aber eher um ein Midrange-Modell, welches nichts anderes als die abgespeckte Version bedeutet.
