For the Motherboard review series, I am going to explain Gigabyte GA-790FXTA-UD5.Gigabyte uses the Phoenix Award BIOS modified licensed. And the main menu includes MB Intelligent , Standard CMOS Features, Tweaker (MIT), Integrated Peripherals, Power Management, PC Health Status, and Advanced BIOS Features. It is a AMD motherboard.
We all know there are SATA 3.0 and USB 3.0 technology already come in the marketplace where there are many motherboards on the market and users without support for the those technology. So it will be make confuse motherboard manufacture to launch their product for customers.
It is not like a GigaByte MA785GT-UD3H – Motherboard AMD Socket AM3, The the GIGABYTE MA790FXTA-UD5 motherboard supports USB 3.0 , SATA 3.0 , AM3 CPUs and 3-way CrossfireX. Wht Gigabyte launch this motherboard that support those new teckhnology. A couple years ago, AMd launched the 790 FX series chipset to be coincided in the AMD phenom CPUs launching.
The initial motherboards use chipset AM2+ Socket, it means the motherboards could not take a DDr3 memory but could take AM3 CPUs as the mission pins on a AM2+ CPU would no affect the insertion. And Gigabyte had released a couple of 790 FX boards with AM3 socket especially the motherboard that I was reviewing for you, GIGABYTE MA790FXTA-UD5 which one of the motherboard supporting AM3+DDR3+USB 3.0 and SATA 3.0.
Performance of this Gigabyte GA-790FXTA-UD5 Motherboard is pretty good on the system. There are so many new feature that can cripple the functionality of ofher features such as CrossfireX on the P55 chipset.
