[FONT=Trebuchet MS]In terms of features, the Gigabyte GA-MA790GP UD4H motherboard has it all. It fully supports the new Phenom II CPUs on the market on the AM2+ Socket including the Phenom II X4 940 and Phenom II X3 710 CPUs we have in-house. The need for two AMD platforms is necessitated by the fact that the AM2+ CPUs do not work on AM3 motherboards meaning that to show the best performance; we need to use the fastest AM2+ CPU, the 940. Gigabyte outshines the other motherboard using the AMD 790FX chipset I’ve tested in every benchmark. I give the Gigabyte GA-MA790GP-UD4H an Editor’s Choice only due to the fact that I’ve only tested two boards on the new platform and the somewhat lacking bundle. As to the integrated graphics, the 790GX is the fastest integrated graphics on the AMD side of things. No one, who is serious about gaming, however, would use the HD 3300 integrated graphics; they would use an add-on card.[/FONT]
