ECS A85F2-A GOLDEN (AMD A85X) Motherboard Review

We take a look at the "GOLDEN" Series A85X based motherboard from the folks over at ECS. There's certainly gold featured everywhere, but it does it deserved your gold?

Replacing Everest in our labs is AIDA64. This new testing suite is from the core development team from Lavalys and continues that tradition. The guys have thrown in better support for multithreaded CPUs as well as full 64 bit support. We use this to test memory and HDDs for now, but may find ourselves opening this up to other areas of the motherboard.

USB 2.0 and USB 3.0 performance is exactly where you'd expect it to be with all our setups performing close to each other.

 

We do see the ASRock XFast setups perform a little better when it comes to USB 2.0 performance, but USB 3.0 performance across the board is nearly identical on every platform.
