990fx vs 990x

post #1 of 9
Thread Starter 
Hello!
Today MSI released a 990FX motherboard and now I want to ask if that particular AMD Chipset beats the 990X, which hasn't been released yet.

In short words: What is better, 990FX or 990X?

Thanks alot! redface.gif

Yes, I know that the 990FX is a motherboard chipset from AMD. And there also exists the 990X CPU from Intel, I know. But don't you know there will also be an 990X AMD Chipset for motherboards?

The FX is the topdog chipset for AMD.

I believe the 990x chipset allows the mobo to have a built in gpu, ofcourse not a great one.

I'd assume it's like the difference between the 880G and 890FX in the 800 series...

Probably how many PCI-E lanes the GPU's will run at if in a Crossfire config and a few other things that enthusiasts care about. ie. 16x single card or 8x+8x in Xfire, vs. 16x in single and x16+x16 in Xfire or x8 in quadfire.

At least those are my predictions, we'll have to wait and see what the 900 series has in store for us.

they are for the most part the same.

X has 6 SATA3 ports
FX has 8 SATA 3 ports

X can only do SLI with 8+8
FX can do 16+16+8

No, i don t think so.People that want on-board graphics will move to the FM1 socket.AM3+ boards with 9xx series chipsets may be free of on-board graphics.
