Asus M5A99X EVO and Asus M5A97 EVO: two Simpler Mainboards for AMD Bulldozer. Page 6

To study the design and functionality of the mainstream and entry-level chipsets for the AMD Bulldozer platform we decided to go with two mainboards from Asus: Asus M5A99X EVO and Asus M5A97 EVO, based on AMD 990X and AMD 970 chipsets respectively. In our today’s review we are going to compare them against one another as well as against the previously tested mainboards on the top Socket AM3+ core logic set.

Now let’s run the same tests with the CPU and memory overclocked. You can see the difference in the system parameters in the following table:
We can’t confuse the results of the two ASUS mainboards here. The junior model overclocked our CPU to only 4.3 GHz, which is 200 MHz lower than most of the other mainboards, and this difference explains why it’s behind by about 4%. The M5A97 EVO is as fast as the MSI 990FXA-GD80, though, as both have the same CPU frequency.
