AMD 790GX: RV610 For Enthusiasts?

Benchmarks: Synthetic, Continued

SiSoft Sandra simply confirmed that our test platforms were set up correctly. Consistency in the CPU and multimedia tests was expected. The memory bandwidth numbers were also fairly flat, favoring the 790GX just slightly. But again, since it’s the Phenom processor sporting the memory controller, we’d expect similar results across all three motherboards.

    Great review, and it's good to see that AMD is at last able to target more enthusiast markets competitively.

    So... why does a page 15 and 16 of this article exist if there is no page 15 or 16 to the article?
    Take a closer look. What happened?

    Please change this benchmark suite or check if PcMark Vantage is unbiased.

    That was strange. Should be fixed now.

    Fortunately, with no Intel platforms tested, this should be a non-issue for the current situation ;-) In the future, you'll be seeing SYSmark, though.
