eVGA X58 Classified 141-BL-E759-A1 Model - eVGA X58 Classified 141-BL-E759-A1 Model
Tue, July 21 2009 | 4:02PM | PermaLink Feedback?
“EVGA, long known for their Nvidia based video card products, have been making some great strides over the past couple of years in the motherboard market. EVGA currently offers several X58 chipset motherboards, with their Classified series being the flagship offering. There are two available Classified versions, one with the NF200 chipset and one without. The only major difference between these two offerings is the E759 Model has the NF200 chpset onboard, allowing for a 3-way X16 SLI configuration, whereas the E760 version does not have the NF200 chipset meaning a 3-way SLI will be a X16-X16-X8 configuration. This review will be on the higher end E759 version with a water cooling twist. A full system water cooling setup was obtained for this review. There are plenty of other reviews out there on this motherboard using the stock cooling, so it was decided to do something a little different this time around and review the board outfitted with a water cooling setup. These Classified motherboards hit the market with a lot of fanfare, and great expectations. Does the motherboard live up to the hype? Are they worth the premium price? How effective is the water cooling? These questions and more will be explored in this review.”

Where does AMD fit in today? - Where does AMD fit in today?

"A few days after our review of the AMD Phenom II X6 1090T, we received a call from AMD. The call was some commentary on the actual review (okay, really it was of complaints). The first thing that was said was that we were wrong in our premise that we needed more voltage to get higher clocks on the PII X6. At the time of this writing we cannot debate this claim. AMD maintains that their silicon is mature enough that the CPU does not need extra voltage to attain higher speeds. The claim about maturity is true; the Phenom II CPU is a very mature design (bordering on old in CPU terms). It is also being made in FABs that have the lowest failure rate in the world. Next was a complaint about the number of multi-threaded apps that we used. This one I take exception to. I mean, “Come on AMD; it is a six-core CPU. It should be able to handle multi-threaded apps. If it cannot there IS an issue”. But I will not belabor that point. Instead I will talk about the market position that AMD now finds itself in after some poor management decisions (poor decisions in both my and many other analysts’ opinions)."
