MSI A88X-G45 Gaming Assassin's Creed Edition Review

PC Perspective
23 July 2014
  • Excerpt: Motherboards are fascinating to me.  They always have been.  I remember voraciously reading motherboard reviews in the mid-90s.  I simply could not get enough of them.  Some new chipset from SiS, VIA, or ALi?  I scoured the internet for information on them and what new features they would bring to the table.  Back then motherboards did not have the retail presence they do now.

Hi Tech Legion
27 March 2014
  • Summary: At a price point of $114.99, the MSI A88X-G45 Gaming is in the Mainstream Gaming category for motherboards. Benchmarks – All our benchmarks on the MSI A88X-G45 Gaming motherboard showed that the motherboard is more than capable of providing a great experience. The built in SATA and USB 3.0 tests were right in line with typical rates, and the Killer NIC card performed well in our speed tests.

MSI A88X-G45 gaming review

  • Summary: MSI has a truly terrific offering with the MSI A88X-G45 Gaming edition. It is feature rich, it a perfect symbiosis with AMDs Kaveri APUs and it just is a gorgeous motherboard to look at. Herein lies a bit of a danger, as everything about the MSI A88X-G45 Gaming edition breathes high-end and enthusiast, but the Kaveri APUs really are mainstream offerings. I mean make no mistake here, Kaveri APus have a lot in store.

MSI A88X-G45 Gaming Motherboard Review

10 March 2014
  • Conclusion: The MSI A88X-G45 Gaming is available at Newegg for $119.99 , which is about $10 higher than the other high end A88x chipset motherboards. However, the A88X-G45 Gaming has several things that justify the extra cost when compared to the other boards. The OC Genie button, Slow Mode switch, and onboard power/reset buttons are the main reasons for the slightly higher cost. The benchmark tests show the MSI A88X-G45 performing very well, and overclocking was a breeze.

MSI A88X-G45 Gaming

27 February 2014
  • Conclusion: MSI has put renewed focus behind AMD's FM2+ platform by retailing a bevy of high-end boards based on the A88X chipset. Leading the pack is the A88X-G45 Gaming, which ships with Assassin's Creed Liberation HD for a limited time. The A88X-G45 Gaming ticks almost every checkbox we care to think of when evaluating supporting boards for AMD's APUs. It's well-laid-out, has a slew of decent features, a respectable BIOS and performs well in our benchmarks.

MSI A88X-G45 Gaming con AMD Dual Graphics

Noticias 3D
7 August 2014
  • Summary: Hace años, con APUs Llano tuvimos muchos problemas para activar y probar una configuración Dual Graphics, pero lo conseguimos. En ese momento vimos que los juegos antiguos con motor DX9 no mejoraban rendimiento y por lo tanto Dual Graphics funcionaba sólo medianamente bien con DX10 y muy bien con juegos DX11. Las cosas han cambiado a mejor y con las APUs Trinity la configuración fue mucho más simple.
  • Pros: Buen sonido y chip de red integrados, Placa completa y pensada para el overclock, Excelente disposición de los componentes, Buena estética, Buenos extras
  • Cons: La plataforma FM2+ no termina de tener sentido cuando se dispara el precio de todos sus componentes

  • Summary: Komplexní hodnocení berte prosím s jistou rezervou. Je totiž jasné, že ne každý využije množství USB 3.0 portů, lepší zvukový / síťový kodek nebo například mSATA port. Stejně tak ne každý vyžaduje CrossFireX / SLI zapojení nebo dodatečné navýšení výkonu sestavy přetaktováním. Pro někoho může být také důležité bohaté příslušenství, ale to hodně souvisí s cenovou kategorií desky. Někdo zase může ocenit propracovanost a grafické zpracování BIOSu nebo přiloženého softwaru.

APU平台遊戲主機板登場!! MSI A88X-G45 Gaming

2 May 2014
  • Excerpt: 對執著於AMD陣營CPU的玩家來說,近年來應該會稍微感到有些失望吧?即便AMD還是不斷的將新的CPU投入到消費市場,但卻始終無法重現當年K7、K8可以和Intel分庭抗禮的時代,近期不管是在高端或是在中階主流的市場中相比Intel,戰鬥力明顯就是差了一節…… 這麼說想必一定會「有人在筆者後面,他們非常火」,但事實是,如果你去電腦賣場逛一圈,你會發現可以搭配AMD CPU的主機板選擇性真的不多,想找到用料好、功能完備的主機板更是難上加難。 ■ Kaveri APU崛起 好在,新一代的Kaveri APU系列看來是有扳回一城的趨勢,按照AMD近期的動作來看,明顯是將APU列為主要的戰力,上一期我們已經測試過A10-7850K與A8-7600的效能表現,以包含了運算與顯示核心的CPU來說,效能表現是足以令人稱道的,但足以和它匹配的主機板在哪裡?事實上就是去年很多板卡廠已經預備好、晶片組代號A88X、A85的FM2+主機板,如果你覺得去年推出的這些款式還不夠Special,那麼今天我們要介紹的這張A88X-G45...
