TRENDING NOW: Microsoft reportedly interested in acquiring AMD

J&W MINIX 890GX-USB3 Mini-ITX (AMD 890GX) Motherboard

You hear everyone saying "Go Big!". Well, J&W went small instead, but in a very big way with their MINIX line-up.

Introduction

 

J&W is a company that I personally had never heard of before this review. But after taking some time to look over their site and what they have to offer, it is certainly one that I will have in my head for some time to come.

 

We had the chance to take a look at a very interesting offer from J&W. It is a Mini-ITX motherboard built around the AMD 890GX chipset, complete with four SATA 3.0 ports, two USB 3.0 and three network interfaces. There is an n-spec wireless card and two GBe LAN ports. This pint sized product also is capable of supporting up to a 95 Watt AMD CPU.

 

But, what happens if you drop a Phenom II X6 1100T into this board? We take the time to see if it can take it, or if the MINIX 890GX-USB3 will fold under the pressure. So please keep the fire extinguisher handy and remember kids, don't try this at home - it will void your warranty.
