The 990FXA-UD7 looks great and has a features list as long as your arm, but is it worth buying?
With a refined design to that will please most enthusiasts, Gigabyte's GA-MA790FXT-UD5P socket AM3 motherboard is on the test bench. We find out whether this Gigabyte motherboard's new found beauty is more than just skin deep.
With DDR3 prices dropping faster than the FTSE, AMD's AM3 motherboards, like the Asus M4A79-T Deluxe, are becoming really quite attractive. Built on familiar M3A79-T technology - one of our favourite AM2+ boards - does the latest generation offer an equally great buy?
DFI's 'dark' 790FX motherboard features the latest SB750 southbridge from AMD and promises the usual crazy DFI overclocking and shenanigans. We drop the new Phenom II X4 940 CPU in to see what it's truly capable of.
AMD CPUs finally get support for DDR3, but does it make a difference? We put the latest Phenom II X4 810 and 805, as well as the X3 720 and 710 through their paces on DDR2 and DDR3 platforms to see how they stack up against the competition.
AMD launches five new AM3 CPUs today complete with DDR3-1333 support, as well as backward compatability with DDR2.
AMD is still rating its CPUs with ACP "average" power consumption, instead of a "total" power limit and claims its own TDP values can't be compared to Intel's - but why?
Corsair and Super Talent provide us with some super fast DDR3 running at a blistering 1,800MHz and 1,866MHz respectively. What can the ultimate memory give to your system? We find out.
DDR3 is the new memory that you will need to take full advantage of upcoming chipsets featuring technologies like XMP and EPP. We grab some modules from Kingston and OCZ to see which is better if you feel the need to upgrade.
Sandtiger is the new core name for the Opteron AMD intends to arrive in 2009. We also get some more details on the 45nm Shanghai core as well.
AMD has announced that it's developed a new memory technology called G3 Memory Extender that allows for higher memory capacities in Opteron-based machines.
AMD is said to be readying the launch of a new flagship dual-core processor before Phenom arrives later in the year.
AMD today announced that its "native" quad core CPU, codenamed Barcelona, will start arriving on shelves in August.
AMD CPUs on a 45nm process are set to arrive as soon as 12 months away, but by then will it be too little, too late?
AMD has shared some details with us on its upcoming native quad core "Barcelona" processor. With it comes a new name: Phenom. We delve into the depths of the new architecture to see what improvements have been shoehorned into the new silicon.
Well-known as a gamer's best friend, AMD chips have dominated the enthusiast sector for quite a while now. AMD is now moving the Athlon 64 to a new platform, called AM2, with a new line of chips and a DDR2 memory controller. How do the new chips line up against the old - and against Intel's Core Duo?
Speculation and opinions are pinging back and forth over the net concerning the relative performance of the next generation CPU platforms from Intel and AMD.
We have the details on the range of processors that AMD will be introducing next year. How about a dual-core FX-62 with a 333MHz HyperTransport bus and DDR 2 support? Sounds good to us.
