  • Pros: Supports both CrossFireX and SLI, Good variety of both current and legacy ports, Inexpensive, versus competing boards
  • Cons: PCI Express card slots aren’t labeled to indicate bandwidth, BIOS supports mouse but isn’t graphical

Benchmark Reviews
4 September 2011
  • Conclusion: A motherboard is the foundation of your rig, and thus merits the lion's share of your attention when deciding on components. If you're building a new AMD system, I think a 990FX platform is the way to go, especially for gamers: you can run any AM3 CPU in it and there are lots and lots of PCI-E...

  • Conclusion: The 990FXA-GD80 was limited in the overclocking department but compensated with a high CPU frequency. The resulting speed wasn’t amazing compared with the competition, but it was enough to secure a solid position.

  • Summary: My impressions of the 990FXA-GD80 aren’t very good. It was quirk after, issue, after quirk while testing this board. M-Flash didn’t work, the Control Center software sucks, the Click-BIOS is atrocious, the network port basically crapped out on me, and the overclocking could have been better than it...
