I'm really hoping that MSI releases a microATX form factor of this 890FX board with three x16 PCIe slots like this....(a photoshop mod I just made)

Guys those PCI-E slots are not just for graphics cards. Any 1X/4X PCI-E card works like a sound card or TV card or whatever. Theres not many add in cards that need X16 or even X8 apart from a graphics card.

I think everybody knows this, it is more of a question on how the board handles the lanes.

OFF TOPIC: You know, the more I've thought about it, the more I think they should do away with the x1 and x8 (not x4 and x16) physical pci-e slot types. Bandwidth can be whatever, but it would simplify board layout and functionality to have the slots be more general purpose. The x1 slot in particular is a pain, things hang out of it precariously, and the x8 seems rare except on servers...though maybe on servers it serves a more substantial purpose.

It's cool to see that RD890 solutions are beginning to appear, but I am still happy with my Crosshair III Formula (especially since I bought it just about 3.5 months ago, and it is an expensive motherboard.)

Anyways, I'm wondering like everyone else about how this board spreads the PCIe lanes. Also, I hope that the 8xx series brings some much better IGPs (the HD3200 was somewhat revolutionary, but it's time for an upgrade.)

The price of this would be catastrophic, i think about >400$. Anyway 6 pci e slots are totally useless. I am waiting for the most powerful 890gx, so it would end up more than 400$ maybe.

It doesn't matter if they're 8x or 16x. This is pcie 2.0. Pcie 2.0 8x = pcie 1.0 16x.
That's plenty of bandwidth for any single GPU card.
Even if you're using two 5970s you only need two of the three slots. There's plenty of room for various configs. This is an excellent board.

And screw asus.

This is the highest end chipset for AMD.
The 790FX is a the top chipset, the 790X and 790GX comes after it.

It is very unlikely to cost any where near $400, and not even the X58 boards cost this much.
There are very few boards over $400, so far its some of the EVGA and Asus boards.

lol, I think he wasn't referring to US dollars $400 as he's in Albania. :)

Exactly. Not even my P55 board runs dual 16x and my 280s ran fine.

Nice setup n all, but with Dual Slot videocards, you still can't utilize all your slots, I say ATX standard needs to change, Unless if you want to run single slot cards throughout the motherboard. Course TBH I wouldnt recommend more than 2 videocards anyway since scaling beyond 2 is horrible.

Yes it should.
On the other hand, the main purpose of this particular chipset is full speed graphics slot.
That is why AMD released the 790X chipset because that is all that you usually need. ;)
I would expect a 890X chipset later.

I agree. It gives the consumer the MOST options to use various cards.

What do you mean yes it should? I already said that while populating both 16x slots on my MSI GD70 and having my Xfi in another slot both 4870s ran in 16x mode. Id say it was working right and this board should be no different. As for the P55 boards, well they ARE supposed to be mainstream so running dual cards you would expect an 8x configuration. But as i said before, running 2 280s in 8x didnt bottleneck at all so it really dosent matter unless you plan on running 2 GTX380s or something. If you can afford that though, you shouldnt be buying low grade boards or mainstream chipsets.

Dude, you seems to over react quite often. :respect:
What I meant is the GTX 280 should work fine in a x8 slot.
You did mention that the board is working right, and its good to know.

On the other hand, this thread is about this new board for the AMD platform, I am not even discussing how the P55 works.
The major difference between the 790FX and the 790X chipset is the number of PCI-Express lane avaliable.
So AMD will most likely some something similar and release a 890X.
If you don't care about running on x8 you might as well grab something that is one step down and save some cash.

Asus seems to be concentrating on Intel these days. Gigabyte seems to be answering the call of the underdog.

Never liked MSI used to years ago but not now, and Gigabyte look cheap to me!

Never thought id go ASUS because of price premium but here i am... the ASUS M4A79XTD EVO is like a value enthusiast board.

If ASUS could do something along those lines with the new chipset i would be all over it but no one really needs to go to the new chipset just yet i would leave it a while longer.

Haven't had anything but trouble out of Asus, So I don't use them at all. It's fact of them releasing so many boards that it appears they take no time to improve on the current ones with bios code.
