AMD Launches 6 Core CPU-ready 890GX Mobo

By - Source: Tom's Hardware US | B 5 comments

This board is prepped for the hexacore AMD Phenom II X6.

AMD and its motherboard partners today released the AMD 890GX Chipset, integrated with the ATI Radeon HD 4290, and are designed to be compatible with the upcoming AMD Phenom II X6 six-core processor.

The AMD 890GX Chipset supports the SATA 3.0 6Gb/s hard drive interface and many AMD 890GX-based motherboards feature SuperSpeed USB 3.0 support.

We've got our hands on the Gigabyte GA-890GPA-UD3H, the Asus M4A89GTD Pro/USB3, and the MSI 890GXM-G65. After putting them through a barrage of tests, our reviews department found that AMD’s SB850 southbridge is probably the best reason to select an 890GX motherboard over the products it replaces thanks to the new integrated SATA 6Gb/s controller.

If you're building a new AMD-based system – particularly one you plan on containing six cores, then you should head on over to read our full review.

    Any ideas on if we should expect penta-cores?

    Does this mean it's gonna support all "Thuban" CPUs? Assuming that Thuban is the 6-core CPU we're talking about.
