ASUS Crosshair IV Formula AMD-890FX Motherboard Review

ASUS Crosshair IV Formula AMD-890FX Motherboard
In April of 2010, AMD introduced the final parts of their "Leo" platform: new iterations of their 45nm processor family and the supporting 8-series chipset. Unlike Intel, which seems to delight in spawning new CPU socket architectures, AMD continues to support the AM3 socket, so upgrades are easier and cheaper. The 8-series chipsets along with the SB850 south bridge brings some new capabilities over the previous "Dragon" 7-series chipsets, and as you might expect, ASUS is ready with a new enthusiast-level offering, the ASUS Crosshair IV Formula motherboard. This AMD 890FX-based motherboard offers some interesting new enhancements over the previous generation 790FX-based Crosshair III Formula motherboard, and Benchmark Reviews compares the two as well as taking the Crosshair IV Formula as far as it can go with the fastest components.
