BIOSTAR TPower nForce 750a Motherboard Review

First off, we start with the memory performance and AMDs onboard memory controller always impresses when compared to Intel's chipset based memory controller.

First we see that with the IGPs enabled we see both chipsets use the same amount of memory space and bandwidth. Using the discrete GPU setup we see that the two platforms are identical. When we go to overclocking, we see that the nForce 750a overclocks a lot better than the ASUS board.
