AMD’s 890FX Chipset: An Evolution for the AM3 Platform

The future will tell us whether the 890FX is better for overclocking or not ...

The 890FX chipset itself is an interesting creature that doesn’t represent a total revolution in AMD chipset design but it is what we would call the perfect evolution of an existing platform. Let’s be honest here; in a market that is so conscious about how much they can afford on an upgrade, revolutions are too costly and would accomplish very little on a platform that has been around for the better part of four years. So even though the near lack of any real technical tour de force may upset some people, the vast majority will be more than happy with the expanded feature set 890FX boards bring to the table.
