MSI 890FXA-GD65 AMD 890FX Motherboard Review

Testing – System & Memory Testing
Our whole system test was conducted using PCMark Vantage and is probably our most comprehensive test in all of our benchmarks, covering all spectrums of the computer and taking the longest to complete.


Moving back to SiSoftware Sandra 2011 are our Memory Bandwidth, Memory Latency and Cache & Memory benchmarks.

We also tested the USB 3.0 ports to see the different between the USB 3.0 and USB 2.0 ports. We used a 500GB Western Digital My Passport for the tests.


Our next test, Super Pi, calculates Pi to so many places, in our test its 1 Million places. That’s the 3.1415 Pi, not the pie you eat. The lower the time, the better the processing power.
