Join us as we explore how these features tie the Spider platform together, and how the FX’s performance, power consumption, and initial motherboard implementations measure up. All IGP northbridges are pin-compatible to each other and even predecessors series , to lower the product cost for each PCB redesign due to pin incompatibility and maximize the product lineup.

AMD FX motherboards comparison, reviews, discount offers, tests and news.

Although the aforementioned figures may be small compared to the TDP figures of a performance CPU, there is a growing demand for computer systems with higher performance and lower power consumption.

This is a highly anticipated feature since 790cx features a built-in memory controller. However, having seen the workstation platform equivalent from AMD with their Barcelona processors, so far there doesn’t seem to be much in the way of expectations in either performance or power mad with all the new features on the processor end. The existence of the chipsets was proven in October through two hardware websites in Chile [2] and Spain [3] which posted the leaked slides of an ATI internal event, “ATI chipset update”.


Because of this, the chipset can even be passively cooled with a simple heatsink. And as a result, the first performance and enthusiast segment chipsets products under the AMD brand, the FX, X and chipsets were launched on November 19, as part of the Spider codenamed desktop performance platform.

Archived from the original on May 9, Retrieved January 29, On drums, you’d find AMD’s new FX chipset, hidden away not behind a massive array aamd snares and cymbals, but under a heatsink amongst a sea of other chips on a crowded motherboard. Archived December 16,at the Wayback Machine.

Retrieved August 13, Neutronbeam Zak, you know you can’t validate any of the above details without first throwing Retrieved August 1, For the enterprise platform, the “Remote IT” technology temporary name was reported to be released by the end of or early Radeon R and Radeon R based video cards. In a comparison against the GeForceAnandtech considered the G “a better balanced chipset offering improved casual gaming performance, wmd video quality, similar power requirements, greater availability, and better pricing.

Enabling Higher Phenom Overclocks? Details about the AutoXpress features are listed as follows:. Please update this section to reflect recent events or newly available information. Some of the members of the AMD chipset 7790fx, specifically the and family of chipsets and the GX chipset, have integrated graphics onboard IGPas well as supporting hardware video playback acceleration at different levels.

Test results according to AMD.

Retrieved August 20, If Spider were a rock band, Phenom would undoubtedly be the front man, with the Radeon HD and filling in at lead and rhythm guitars. It’s nice of Krogoth to fill in for Chuckula over the holidays.


Customize The Tech Report Though from what we’ve seen, motherboard manufacturers 79fx still sticking to their heat-pipe designs for enthusiast boards. The itsy bitsy FX The heart of the FX chipset is a north bridge chip that shares the same name. This should theoretically help power consumption and efficiency as well.

AMD’s 790FX chipset

Retrieved January 31, So as we’ve pointed out, this is just a platform renewal for AMD, but don’t expect anything exceptional. Split power planes is also a new feature supported by AMD Phenom and above processors where the there will be two power planes feeding the CPU, one for the CPU cores and another for the memory controller.

Retrieved February 19, They’re largely responsible for overall system performance, and that’s even more appealing to enthusiasts than eyeliner and tight leather pants are to hair metal groupies. All IGP northbridges are pin-compatible to each other and even predecessors seriesto lower the product cost for each PCB redesign due to pin incompatibility and maximize the product lineup. Now that’s a surprise.
