Review: Integrated all along


Back in March, we had a chance to check out the first engineering sample of the AMD 780G chipset and you can read about it here. We were very pleased with this integrated chipset so we decided to check out some additional boards.

Due to the fact that not all boards are capable to handle a Phenom X4 9850, we decided to run all the tests with our old Phenom 9600 Black Edition. We did not overclock the CPU, but we did overclock the graphics-core if possible. Of course, we tested all boards with the same configuration. We also tested with the latest energy-efficient Athlon X2 series, and we used a 4850e. For comparability reasons we stuck to 800MHz DDR2 speeds.
