    Default AMD 990FX: The Cold Hard Truth

    So here is where it is a bit disappointing; the 990FX shares exactly the same silicon as the 890FX and has seen no major changes. Even the added SB950 is a rebadged SB850. Initially, there were hopes that the chipset and new SB950 had some major additions: adding native USB3 support, using a smaller die size, additional PCI-e lanes but these were not added. Rather, the major features of the 990FX were key support for the eight-core processors and support for the faster HyperTransport 3.1 with signaling up to 6.4 GT/s (on 890FX you get 3.0 with up to 5.2 GT/s).
