Roundup: Four 790FX Socket AM3 Motherboards

Benchmark Results: A/V Encoding And Productivity

Gigabyte and MSI battle for the audio encoding-performance title in iTunes.

The MA790FXT-UD5P continues its audio encoding battle through Lame, this time matched by the M4A79T Deluxe.

Asus wins in both DivX and Xvid, but H.264 encoding resulted in a four-way tie.

The 790FX-GD70 and M4A79T Deluxe take an equal number of wins in our productivity suite.
