When Josh tested AMD’s new 890GX chipset he used offerings from MSI and Gigabyte and while those were the only one sent to him to benchmark so far there are other manufacturers making 890GX boards.  PC Stats received an ASUS M4A89GTD PRO/USB3 for testing.  It offers the usual pair of PCIe 16x slots, dual channel RAM support and six SATA 6Gb/s, a pair USB 3.0 plugs along with another 14x USB 2.0.  They tested the SATA 6Gb/s with a Sagate Barracuda XT 2TB which benefited from the extra bandwidth offered which you can see by following the link.

“ASUS’ M4A89GTD PRO/USB3 motherboard is built around the 55nm AMD 890GX and SB850 southbridge. It features 128MB of onboard DDR3-1333 Sideport memory for the integrated DX10.1 ATI Radeon HD 4290 graphics. Its AM3 CPU socket will accommodate AMD Phenom II and Athlon II processors, right through to the six-core Phenom II X6 (code name ‘Thuban’/140W CPU).”
