[Softpedia] ASRock 990FX Extreme4 AM3+ Bulldozer motherboard pictured

post #1 of 51
Thread Starter 
Continuing the trend of AM3+ boards being posted...
Quote:

With less than three weeks left until AMD officially introduces the first FX-series processors based on the Bulldozer architecture, more and more hardware makers start announcing their AM3+ motherboards, and ASRock is the latest to join the party with the 990FX Extreme4.

ASRock has routed these to three PCI Express x16 slots, which are compatible with 3-way Nvidia SLI and AMD CrossFireX setups, and the board also features a pair of PCI-E x1 slots as well as two legacy PCI ports.

Even though the Extreme4 won't certainly be ASRock's Bulldozer flagship motherboard, this can support AMD's fastest FX processors with TDPs as high as 140W.

The first Bulldozer processors are expected to arrive on June 7 at the E3 expo where AMD will launch four desktop processors based on the Zambezi core with prices ranging from $190 to $320.

Also, what's this in bold!? June 7th release for the actual chips too!?

Nice looking board, but no Triple channel for RAM?

This ain't X58

I'll be happy with my board. I have a feeling if SLI can work on 900 series chipsets, it can be hacked to work on 800 series ones too Of course it already can, but at least this way it will be a bit more native and have less chance of things not working

EDIT: Chips on the 7th? Crap, I have some hyper-saving to do!

This is a nice looking board... DDR3 1866, fans on the heatsinks, good spacing for Crossfire/Sli, a PCIe 1x above the first PCIe 16x for my soundcard.... want more details!

It IS Triple Channel when you use up only 3 DIMM slots.
( Sorry bro, couldn't resist. )

AMD has never used Triple Channel.

Future Intel boards will no longer be using Triple Channel either.

They'll either be Dual Channel as seen on 1155, or Quad Channel in future chipsets ( X79 ) from here on out.

OT: These AM3+ boards are really nice, and cool to see the SLI logo on them too.

looks almost exactly the same as the 890fx deluxe5.
The VRM heatsink might look small, but its actually very tall which is good for people with tower heatsinks on their cpu
