In the end, Intel still had a leg up on AMD in terms of overall performance, but the new platform was impressive.
Today, we're going to take a look at the latest 790FX based motherboard to hit our test bench, namely, the MSI K9A2 Platinum Motherboard.
There is a thread about it right here in this section few lines below.
I just had a system built with the MSI K9A2 Platinum I learned that i have an old bios version...
The motherboard I have is this: - MSI K9A2 Platinum AM2 /AM2 AMD 790FX ATX AMD Motherboard .
Rounding out the package are two Cross Fire bridge connectors.
In case the Live utility flashed a older BIOS (which happens often) you can still think of using the USB way.
In mid-Q4 2007, AMD released their 790FX, 790X and 770 chipsets, the final pieces required to complete their Spider platform.
As the backbone of the new platform, the 700 series chipsets were designed with new feature sets to take full advantage of the Phenom processor's capabilities.
The socket types match, but the only thing that concerns me is the lack of a cooling unit under specifications.
