ASUS announces 970 Pro Gaming Aura motherboard based on AMD 970+SB950 chipset
To support the launch db950 ultra-high-end processors from AMD, makers of motherboards released their new platforms featuring enthusiast-class feature-set as well chipzet robust voltage regulating modules VRMs. So what has changed in the chipset over FX you might ask? Despite formal positioning, the new mainboards are pretty affordable.
But for your FX it would not be much of diffrence. As you’ll notice in the benchmarks, overall memory bandwidth has increased quite a bit, though albeit still ‘only’ dual-channel. As a result, it can be a minefield when choosing motherboards for AMD FX processors that have up-to-date functionality.
Together they form the infrastructure for all standard devices, connectivity and interconnect bandwidth.

I won’t be overclocking my Chipet. Supported processors support a DDR3 clock frequency of MHz, this will help out with memory bandwidth. Now for regular HDDs that is not really very important. Sign up now Username Password Remember Me.
Where the FX has many PCIe links available for your dedicated graphics or other add-in cardsthe will have less. Ancient chipset is ancient. Due to lack of PCI Express 3. Nothing new a,d really.
IIRC is a 95w hex core ya? Well, pretty frickin little to be honest, we did spot 4 PCIe links.
Two of the ports even feature improved power circuitry to give cleaner power delivery to audio DACs if needed. Not something that the majority of you guys would be interested in and it allows for virtual addressing of memory by system devices.
GIGABYTE 970-Gaming SLI (AMD 970) Motherboard Review
But with the tremendous rise of fast SSD drives this really is a large plus. I would suggest an Asrock Extreme3 if you go or the gigabyte UD3 In theory these would be your possible PCIe lane configurations: Honestly its a pretty good board, I am insane enough to run my FX stock on it and its been running fine, I am not gonna even cbipset overclocking on it through.
What would the perfomance difference be? If both slots are populated, they will run in PCIe 2.
That doesn’t mean you have to throw away your slower DDR3 memory, slower memory is obviously supported. I would suggest highly at-least going with a chipset. I am picking out a new motherboard for my AMD FX and was wondering if it was worth spending the extra money and waiting for “Super Eggsaver” shipping to get the and a bigger case.
SB will allow you to connect up-to 14 USB 2. This enables devices to use their native drivers in a virtualized environment for enhanced performance.

Each motherboard features one M. In addition, the motherboard is equipped with one PCIe 2. But that doesn’t meant that certain series motherboards won’t work with the 2nd generation FX processors.
