Beginners Guide: How To Install / Remove an Intel Socket LGA2011 CPU

GIGABYTE A75-UD4H: CrossFire for Llano - PCSTATS.com GIGABYTE A75-UD4H: CrossFire for Llano
Tue, Jul 12 2011 | 6:32PM | Filed under: Motherboards| PermaLink Posted by: STAFF

When we looked at Llano, we determined that its CPU performance is similar to Athlon II X4 or Phenom II X4 840 processor, so why would a discrete GPU user choose Llano instead of an Athlon II X4 or Phenom II X4? Should the user choose a more expensive CPU for gaming? Firstly, Llano is more power efficient and runs much cooler than the 45nm processors. We'll be testing the second question today. In this review, we are not only going to take a look at the GIGABYTE board, but we are also going pair the board with an HD 6870 and run a few games at 1920x1080 resolution with typical settings that average gamers would use to see the impact of CPU performance in games
