  • Conclusion: Well the numbers look bleak for this board to be honest but the innovation, different design ideas, price, color scheme, complete stability, complete set of push buttons, quad Crossfire support, powered eSATA, dual LAN ports, sideways SATA ports, and so on are what won it over for me. Sometimes it’s not all about numbers to make a great board.

AM3 motherboard shootout: DFI DK 790FXB-M3H5 vs MSI 790FX-GD70

  • Summary: Today, we have a look at two AMD AM3 motherboards, the first AMD DDR3 platform available for desktop users. Both DFI and MSI were kind enough to send us a sample of their most high-end product series, which will be tested both on performance and overclockability. We threw in a DDR2-based motherboard to find out whether or not the new memory support gives a true advantage.

22 April 2009
  • Summary: MSI have done a pretty good job with the MSI 790FX-GD70 (AM3) Motherboard. It's one of the most featured-packed motherboard available for the AM3 platform.

  • Excerpt: The latest socket AM3 compatible Phenom II processors have been available for several weeks now and they had proven in our initial coverage to be excellent chips, a notable improvement over their predecessors in several respects, including overclocking and in their support for higher clocked DDR3 memory.

  • Conclusion: We must admit, the MSI 790FX-GD70 has left us with a very positive impression. Beginning with physical aspects of the board, we’d have to say that the overall layout of the GD70 is very good. Considering that it is stacked with expansion slots, MSI did a great job of keeping most connectors and components out of the way. The chipset position and large passive cooling solution is also top-notch.

  • Conclusion: Wraz z renesansem zainteresowania procesorami AMD, na rynku pojawia się coraz więcej płyt wykorzystujących ich nowe możliwości. W szczególności chodzi tutaj o overclocking, w którym Phanomy II nie ustępują produktom Intela. Jednocześnie nabywcy w zamian za dobrą wydajność procesora są gotowi zapłacić więcej także za przeznaczoną dla niego płytę. Naprzeciw ich potrzebom wychodzi MSI prezentując płyta MSI 790FX-GD70 przeznaczoną dla procesorów AMD z podstawką AM3.
  • Pros: Dobre rozłożenie elementów płyty, Rozbudowany BIOS, Obsługa CrossFire x16, Wysoka jakość wykonania, Duża ilość złącz
  • Cons: Dość wysoka cena
