Does 790X (not GX) mother boards support Dragon Platform? Tags: Motherboards Support Last response: April 29, 2009 12:38 PM in Motherboards Share pokeguylow April 26, 2009 7:56:50 PM Topic. More about : 790x mother boards support dragon platform flyin15sec April 27, 2009 12:24:48 AM I think only 790FX, but 790X won't be too much different. The difference is the PCIe bandwidth. Crossfire is only 8x 8x on 790X and 16x 16x on 790FX. pokeguylow April 27, 2009 12:27:13 AM but can 790x run dragon platform?

Get the answer dragoon190 April 27, 2009 5:51:17 AM well, from the look of this webpage (if I'm reading it correctly...) http://www.amd.com/us-en/0,,3715_15337,00.html both 790X and 790FX are considered "backbone" of the Dragon Platform, but with 790X for gamers and 790FX for enthusiasts. I do wonder if the combination would actually result in a performance increase over other MoBo/CPU/Graphic combination, though. flyin15sec April 27, 2009 5:18:51 PM pokeguylow said:but can 790x run dragon platform? As long as you have these parts, it is considered Dragon Platform: PhenomII 9x0 HD 48x0 series GPU AMD 790GX / 790FX Consider that the only difference of 790X is 8x 8x PCIe Crossfire compared to 790FX, and no IGP compared to 790GX, you can come to your own conclusion. pokeguylow April 28, 2009 11:26:08 PM so yes? dragoon190 April 29, 2009 12:38:09 PM Yes. But I have not find any benchmark supporting that this configuration is superior to others. It does sound very cool, though, to run a "Dragon" platform. Can't find your answer ? Ask !
