Test System


Hard Disk: Intel X28 SSD 80GB (Supplied by Intel)


Graphics Card: GIGABYTE 9800GX2 (Supplied by GIGABYTE)


Cooling: GIGABYTE 3D Galaxy II (Supplied by GIGABYTE)


Operating System: Microsoft Windows Vista X64 SP1


Drivers: Intel INF, Forceware 180.24


Today we are using an unnamed board which is currently under NDA for out tests based around the AMD 790GX chipset, so we haven't provided any pictures of the board.


We used this board as AMD is pushing the 790GX chipset for its mainstream users. Today we have the Phenom X4, X3, Core 2 Duo and Core 2 Extreme offerings on the table to see just how well the Athlon 7750 Black Edition can handle itself.

On the synthetic side of things we can see that AMD's Phenom core based Athlon falls a fair bit behind on the CPU performance - however its memory performance is right on the money for the new K10 architecture.
