AMD 990FX Chipset »

Introduction



On October 12th, 2011, AMD released their newest CPUs, the "FX" Bulldozer line. Although not met with the warmest of welcomes, these new CPUs are just part of AMD's latest desktop platform, which also includes AMD Radeon GPUs and, of course, 9-series chipset products. Over the next several weeks we'll be taking a closer look at those 9-series chipset products, the first of which was provided to us by Biostar. The Biostar TA990FXE comes from their "Extreme Edition" product line which features several products designed to meet the needs of "extreme" users, while still keeping the Biostar company focus of providing affordable solutions that don't break the bank. Outfitted with an AMD 990FX chipset and a SB950 I/O hub, the TA990FXE is ready for to provide everything the AMD Scorpius platform requires.
