For all chipsets from AM2's 6X0 series until Ryzen's AM4 and Threadripper's TR4.

After a quick ATTO test I did see dinstinquishably better results for SATA performance for both my Sandisk 128GB SSD and my HSGT 4TB HDD.

Not quite true. I have a ASROCK 939A785GMH/128M (939) & it has the following

Northbridge: AMD 785G

Southbridge: AMD SB710

Thanks for heads up on the update.

Your "not quite true" what was written for? I can find the 785 chipset that your motherboard has in the page I linked to get the new driver I suggested.
