[Softpedia] Gigabyte AM3+ 890FXA-UD5 Motherboard Goes for Sale in Japan - Page 5

post #41 of 63
Oh, No. I am going to buy a 990 chipset mobo when they are released. Hopefully a Crosshair V Formula. I was just comparing the physical differance in the two sockets. I read chit-chat about how the dozer won't fit the AM3 socket do to pin count.

So, I checked it out.

The 890FX chipset may or may not be able to activate all the functions of the dozer. BUT, a little creative enginering and a BIOS update, a resorceful user could do some modes to an AM3 socket and plunk a dozer on it.

I am more excited about the overclocking possibilities for Denabs/Thubans on a 990FX board than Bulldozer to be honest.

But yeah its really nice that Bulldozer will work in AM3. I don't see why Intel can't do this more for their customers. LGA775's flexibility is what caused them to really kick AMD's butt even though AMD was doing the backward's compatability thing as well.

But lets be honest here the 1156-1155 switch wasn't really needed.Oh yeah they did it because they realized the 2600K was better value at $300 dollars over the 980x at $1000 so they decided to make you purchase a new motherboard so 980x/990x line wouldn't become obsolete as fast. They knew they could get another $100-150 bucks out of people because of this. They also didn't even bother to make a better graphics solution much better over the first Gen Intel HD.

From a business standpoint it makes sense because Intel is a master of making people overpay and have been for years. They make the best high end processors barn none yet they make you overpay for everything else that is Intel branded(Motherboards are the best example, G6950 is an insult as well).

When I die my last works will involve defending the Phenom II over the insanely overpriced Q9550. But I will also give Intel credit for one of the best value processors ever;The i5 750.

Don't hate and be oblivious, its not a good combo.
if only those boards were AMD boards...... But thanks for taking the time to read.
And im not hating i have owned many gig boards and will continue to buy from them but its like buying the same product every time.

Interesting!
I'm curious if this works with other AM3 boards.
Moar cores!

Besides which, both of those boards you mention look rediculous, the black and orange thing looks like sick (that's vomit for all those Americans who can't speak English and think sick means something else, it doesn't), and the Assassin board is clearly aimed at little boys who haven't quite grown out of playing with guns (no comment America!!! pmsl ).

Where as the P67A-UD7 is sophisticated and understated, it doesn't shout look at me for the sake of it, it's simply got nice lines.
On my phone the lower case "amd" looked like "and".

Thanks for offering your opinion though, it's worth a whole lot to me to know what you think of these boards visually.

I simply answered that GB does make a very very nice feature wise OC board, that EASILY will reach astounding speeds. And no, none of that is opinion.

I did read and both your posts seemed to be bashing GB in this thread.

The X58-OC tailors to a very small crowd of people, and that small crowd is still yet bigger than the crowd of equivalent AMD'ers. In my opinion it just doesn't seem to make much sense to make some sort of AMD equivalent of the X58-OC, and I suppose GB shares that opinion. Not when 955's are still shattering 7ghz barriers on the boards available today, and some of those boards costing ~$200 or less.

I still rep my Phenom 9x5 club membership in my sig because I loved my 955 and 965, they were awesome and fun to play with. But when it comes to benching with them, you can really only compete against other similar AMD setups. With Intel, you can compete cross platform and I believe that is why the X58-OC exists.

I'm really rooting for this to change when BD comes out, and I am willing to bet GB will come out with a G1 equivalent for BD should it be a success. If we are lucky and BD does level the bench mark playing field, we would probably see a OC version as well.

I'm sure that will work as well as just blocking the one pin 1155 is missing compared to 1156.

LGA 1156 and LGA 1155 are completely differently.
