Asus M4A89GTD Pro/USB3 Motherboard Review

For as long as I can remember enthusiasts around the world have been keen to see how their systems perform with many commercially available benchmarks from such companies as Futuremark.

While these applications are extremely useful to a wide audience sometimes it can be helpful to focus on a ‘real world’ application which many of us use on an almost daily basis.

You can get the KitGuru Photoshop Benchmark 1(4) here. Please note lower times are better as this means less time is taken by the system to process the commands.

  1. I know ASROCk get a lot of praise recently but im still not sold, id rather pay extra for something like this ASUS product for quality.

  2. Can anyone answer if ASROCK and ASUS are the same company? I heard they were the same parent owned company.

  3. It shows how little the pCIe x16 slot really does. always believed it.

  4. I like these lower cost boards, its always nice to focus on the ultra high end things for the wow factor, but they dotn sell much.

  5. Great review, like the pictures. good layout, but weird choice on the addon for 16x, most boards are self switching.
