The first example of many more 890GX based boards to come entered our labs a short time ago and we now have our review online in the form of the ASUS M4A89GTD Pro/USB3 where we look at both its IGP and discrete graphics performance, overall chipset performance, feature set and compare to Intel's mid-level H57 platform.
