Asus M4A79XTD EVO Motherboard


 PCMark Vantage
PCMark Vantage is currently Futuremark's flagship "overall" system wide testing benchmark.
Considerable performance gains were found from our 470MHz overclock. Scores at and over 6000 are exactly what we were expecting.
Futuremark's 3DMark06 is a means of testing a system's capability as a gaming machine.
Microsoft Flight Simulator X
Microsoft Flight Simulator X is part of a handful of games that are heavily CPU reliant, even at resolutions such as 1920x1200. With this in mind, it goes without saying that our Phenom II X4 965BE overclock resulted in considerable framerate increases.
Call of Duty 4
Crysis Warhead
Crysis is the most GPU intensive game from our suite. To reduce the extent of the bottleneck caused by the GeForce 8800GT, the resolution was reduced to 1280x1024 and the testing mode set to Performance rather than Enthusiast.
Sadly for the rest of our games, the CPU Overclock had a minimal effect. The scores however were exactly as expected for a test system of this calibre. Let's move on to the conclusion.

Decent mobo, looks a great rrp too. Anything £5-£10 under that maybe for some online stores.

Seeing a 0.47g oc, is that about what u'd expect from this class of mobo ? (proportional to the stock cpu speed)

Reckon the guyz need to supply u with some AMD gfxcard for testing. Only cos although the 8800gt shows no/little gain with an oc, I think the AMD drivers, and consequently their cards, rely more on the cpu and could show more improvement per oc.

Nice1 Mul, it's great to see such good AMD mobo reviews, and their quantity, on OC3D.Quote
