    Arrow {Review} ~ D.F.I LANPARTY UT 790FX-M2R ~ "Unleashing The Beast"

    With all of the bad Publicity abroad on the "NET" with AMD/ATI lately the "New" offerings from AMD have been cast into a Dark & Dismal place but, for those of us that keep the Torch Burning for AMD we see a very promising Future with great things to come so lets have a look at what the "New" D.F.I LANPARTY UT 790FX-M2R has to offer show casing the "New" AMD/ATI Spider Platform shall we?

    I have decided to Focus in on the the Graphics and Ram Bandwidth Performance Attributes of this "New" Platform due to the Errata 298 Issues surrounding AMD "Phenom" Native Quad Core Processors so in lieu of the Phenom I have selected AMD's Flag Ship Dual Core Processor the AMD Athalon X2 6400+ Black Edition for the review along with 2gb ~Cell Shock~ (PC2 8000) 4-4-4-12 and two of the "New" POWERCOLOR AX3850 HD 3850 to run in CrossFire on the New "Blistering" D.F.I LanParty UT 790FX-M2R/

    I will also be using "2gb" OCZ FLEX XLC (PC2 9200) for Testing as well for those of us that need lower Voltage High Performance Ram that scales exceptionally well to be used in conjunction with the Phenom Processors this is a most viable option for those using Quad Core Processors that are limited by Vdimm with the IMC in the Phenom Processor

    Lets have a closer Look at what this new Radical platform holds for Gamers! First off the Gaming in Cross Fire is absolutely Lucid and the Graphics of the New ATI HD 3850's is nothing less than stellar in Imagery and performance! And contrary to all the latest Intel Hype AMD by far is still the better Gaming Platform even compared to my D.F.I Lanparty UT P35-T2R Q6600 @ 3.55ghz it wipes it up on the battle field

    First lets start with a Little ~Cell Shock~ (PC2 8000) 4-4-4-12 action to get things Kicked off Let me just add for the Record these examples are just very slightly and I mean very slightly just barely scratching the surface of the Raw Power and Potential of this Kick Ass new D.F.I board! If I were to have a processor that would have more overclocking Headroom "My God" I shudder to think of what this board could achieve in Overclocking records "NO JOKE" this is one Bad Mutha F@cka

    No Tweaking what so ever just primary timings and some voltage adjustment was used so far

    Now some OCZ FLEX XLC (PC2 9200) results Witness the Raw Memory Performance and exceptionally Low Latency of this New D.F.I board in action! Once again just to clarify things I want to show the Raw Un-tweaked Power of this Board and there is no crazy voltage being used

    OCZ FLEX XLC (PC2 9200) .......3DMARKK 05 Benches NO Overclocking of Graphics Cards what so ever!..................SHWWING!!!!!!!!!

    Take Note: as to how well the 2 X HD 3850's Scale in Cross Fire with the CPU / RAM Overclock


    EDIT: For those of you with Phenom or soon to be buying one and this awesome Motherboard the OCX FLEX XLC (PC2 9200) 5-5-5-18 is a great set of Ram scales exceptionally well and as you can see it does almost as well as the Cell Shock 4-4-4-12 in terms of latency and not once has it ever been over 2.21Vdimm in Bios during testing!

    Here are some more Examples of what you can expect in terms of Ram Performance on this Board. Unfortunately 3540mhz is pushing the envelope with this chip The screen shots are merely suicide runs nothing more Like I said if I possessed a Processor with Exception Overclocking Headroom say maybe another 300mhz worth I could really make this board dance a jig


    Gonna be doing a clean reformat and see what this New 12/11/07 Bios brings to the table with my Cell ShocksAttachment 68938

    Time to ditch my quad and grab a 6400+. Just something new to toy with.
    As quoted by LowRun......"So, we are one week past AMD's worst case scenario for BD's availability but they don't feel like communicating about the delay, I suppose AMD must be removed from the reliable sources list for AMD's products launch dates"

    Nice review
    Outside of Motherboardpro.com where I got mine from I am unaware of anyone selling them in the states let alone Europe I have actually spoken with Sean @ D.F.I inc San Jose , CA on the Phone and he said they do not expect anymore until after the New Year.
