AMD 890GX/SB850 Compared to Nvidia and Intel Solutions


I was so impressed by the 890GX motherboard that Erodov reviewed (here) that I decided to do a little research and compile a table that compared the new chipset with popular chipsets for various platforms, from Intel, AMD and Nvidia.

It's pretty clear that the 890GX is pretty much the leader when it comes to the feature-set it implements and early adoption of new technologies. Importantly, it marks a very distinct return to form for AMD and is the first time they've actually led the market with regard to features and process technology.

Re: AMD 890GX/SB850 Compared to Nvidia and Intel Solutions

^^ Thats true, but I would beg to state that AMD had a clear and decisive lead with the 790 series chipset too, but the current 890 series is the top of the rung. no comparison.
I recently ( well only today ) saw the video from HardOcp and it was comparing the sata implementation of the 890 chipset and there also it was sweet to see the results, the new WD hdd's when raided in 4 nuimbers out performed the ssd;s even.
But I think it not supporting the DDR2 platform is very bad, I would have changed my mobo, which is lying defunct as it is with this new board.

Come now, you can hardly blame the company for your lack of research into the products you were buying

The more I check out this board, the more I like. And the fact that they released this new board in AM3 means that they shouldn't be changing sockets anytime soon, unlike Intel.
