ASRock A75 Extreme 6 and A55 Pro 3
While many are eagerly awaiting AMD’s upcoming Bulldozer release, the Llano platform continues to be a hot spot for AMD. Llano is the mainstream performer, sandwiched between Zacate and Bulldozer, and while much of the buzz surrounds the flagship products, it’s the mainstream where much of the profits are to be made. While we’re enthusiasts through and through, we are also consumers, looking for the best bang for our buck as well.
We’ve seen many ASRock motherboards for various platforms over the last year and a half, and we continue to be impressed by the value offered in their lineups. Improvements are constantly being made, things tweaked, features added, and all at very impressive prices for the masses. That is a winning combination, no matter how you look at it. The question is: can ASRock continue the momentum with the LLano platform?
Today, we have our hands on two of the new ASRock A series motherboards, named the A75 Extreme 6 and A55 Pro 3. They’re very similar in their features and capabilities, but do have some distinct differences that can appeal to a range of needs. Both come with fantastic prices so let’s waste no time and dive into both motherboards and see if the ASRock trend can continue.
