Gigabyte 890FX-A UD7 Review

3D Benchmarks

For our 3D Mark Vantage and gaming tests we ran all three test systems at their maximum stable overclock. It's really at this end of the scale where the differences between each system, especially for gamers, shine or fail.

3D Mark Vantage

As we saw earlier on, the UD7 is capable of overclocking much better than our recent AMD review boards. This is really born out here when we're comparing like for for like. It might only be 100 points in Performance mode, but once we move into gaming at higher resolutions that margin will only increase.

 

Crysis Warhead

Proof, if proof were needed, that increase it does. Just over 3FPS Average better than its nearest rival, which is a lot in Crysis as we all know.

 

Mafia II

At first it seemed that something was amiss in the Mafia II results, because the difference between the 890FX-A UD7 and the rest is way more than 200MHz on the overclock would give us. However when you look at the Metro results below it's clear that something is definitely rocking and rolling on the UD7.

 

Metro 2033

In keeping with the Mafia II scores, Metro 2033 absolutely loves something about this particular combination and gives us about 40% higher frame-rate than our other two setups. Whilst with Mafia it's only making something smooth, as smooth, here the difference is from unplayable to just about playable if you grit your teeth. Good stuff.

Every motherboard doesnt have to have everything dude. Some people may just want to use one card or something, if you fit everything it will cost more.Quote
