ASUS builds on the success of the M3A78-T by adding a new south bridge to a new board called the M3A79-T Deluxe. How will the new SB750 south bridge and the tried and true 790FX northbridge perform? This motherboard supports AMD Socket AM2+ multi-core processors and with Phenom processors dropping in price this platform is looking solid. Read on to see if the under-the-hood upgrade does anything for performance!
It is nice to finally see the SB750 on the same board as the 790FX chipset. The addition of the SB750 brings a performance boost to the aging 790FX, and boosts the performance of the Asus M3A79-T Deluxe to help it outscore its younger sibling, the Asus M3A78-T. It may not have been a huge jump in performance, but it was enough to make a difference in our testing, and certainly proves that the SB750 fits well with the 790FX. Performance wise, this board did just fantastically.
