ASUS M4A89GTD PRO/USB3 motherboard reviewWhile AMD's 700-series chipset feels like it was only launched yesterday, it's actually been over two years since it first hit retail - Since that time, its base chipset has been tweaked, tinkered with and paired with newer south bridges, and this process continues as we see this solution continue to morph into the subject of today's review and AMD's latest chipset, the 890 series, which comes complete with support for the company's latest six-core CPUs while also offering other goodies such as native Serial ATA 6Gbps support on the south bridge with which it is paired.
