ASRock 890GX Extreme4 Motherboard Review

Grand Theft Auto: Episodes From Liberty City is a standalone compilation of the DLC episodes for Grand Theft Auto IV, containing both The Lost and Damned and The Ballad of Gay Tony on one disc. It was released alongside the DLC release of The Ballad of Gay Tony on 29 October 2009 for the Xbox 360 and released on 13 April 2010 for Microsoft Windows and Playstation 3. It does not require a copy of Grand Theft Auto IV to play, nor is an Xbox Live or PSN account necessary (except for multiplayer).

The engine is still extremely demanding for this game – even months later for the newest hardware. The latest version changes some of the rendering calls and is used partially within the latest Max Payne engine.  We tested the game using the settings displayed in the screenshot below to achieve playable framerates on our 1080P monitor.

Despite not being able to run GTA4: EFLC at maximum settings, the Athlon II X4 635 managed to achieve a decent framerate at reduced settings.  This is a result of the limited CPU performance as the Zotac GeForce GTX470 Graphics Card is more than adequate to run this game at maximum settings when coupled with a more powerful processer .  More impressive, however, is the 9 FPS increase in average framerate when overclocked.
