AMD 790GX Roundup

2. Gigabyte MA790GP-DS4H

Gigabyte 's proposal for the 790GX platform is the MA790GP-DS4H. The motherboard retails for $129.

What's extra in Gigabyte product is the all-solid capacitor motherboard design and the DualBIOS Bios protection. To get familiar with all the Gigabyte MA790GP-DS4H features, visit the product's website.

Inside the box everything placed in order:

Here is what you will find in the box:

  • A Motherboard driver disc
  • A User's Manual
  • A Quick Installation Guide
  • One IDE cable and one floppy disk drive cable
  • Four SATA 3Gb/s cables
  • 2-port USB 2.0 bracket
  • I/O Shield

The chipset is covered by a low height copper heatsink. For our tests we used a pretty large cpu cooler (Scyth Mugen). The installation was easy since the heatsinks found in the nearby CPU area are not large.

Four DDR-2 DIMMs are available on the board allowing for up to 8GB memory configurations:

At the left area of the board there are six (6) SATA II connectors, the front panel pins and of course the passive heatsink for the SouthBridge (SB750).

The motherboard includes two (2) PCI-e v2.0 slots. When you install a CrossFire setup, the motherboard will switch to 2x 8x PCI-e mode, resulting to slightly lower speeds than a full 2x 16x PCI-e setup. There is enough space between the PCI-e slots for easier installation of big sized graphic cards.

The back I/O panel has the following ports and connectors:

  • 1 x PS/2 keyboard port
  • 1 x PS/2 mouse port
  • 1 x D-Sub port
  • 1 x DVI-D port
  • 1 x HDMI port
  • 1 x optical S/PDIF Out connector
  • 1 x IEEE 1394a port
  • 4 x USB 2.0/1.1 ports
  • 1 x RJ-45 port
  • 6 x audio jacks (Center/Subwoofer Speaker Out/Rear)
