Introduction

For many users, the motherboard can be one of the most important parts, due to it being the part that, for most current generation boards, determines how many ports of different sorts you have, how good your onboard graphics are, and how well you can overclock. To an overclocking fiend, a board’s highest clock is important, as is its BIOS, as some boards have truly abysmal BIOSes and simply cannot OC. To a home user, USB and legacy ports are quite important, as is the quality of the onboard graphic solution.

Many manufacturers have done a good job in fleshing out motherboards with 8XX series boards, though the chipsets are far from groundbreaking, being either entirely underwhelming or being replicas with slight differences. Motherboard manufacturers haven’t been asleep. When AMD removed ACC from SB850 because it was a nifty core unlocking that was costing them money, motherboard manufacturers began to introduce their own core unlocking features, when SB850 lacked USB3.0 at least, manufacturers introduced their own USB3.0 solutions.

ASRock hasn’t been asleep at the wheel, and have released a mix of 800 series based boards, with lots of nice features. For review, we’ve got the 890GX Extreme4. Featuring an 890GX northbridge and SB850 for the southbridge, it’s as up to date as you can get on an AMD socket. It also packs a few other features unique to this board, features that will definitely be present in future boards, though the next time we’ll see an AMD motherboard refresh, we’ll be on AM3+.
