It's about that time again for a new roundup, and we've got five AMD 785G-based motherboards lined up for benching. How do these offerings from Asus, ECS, Gigabyte, and MSI fare? Find out in our latest review!

Your overclocking results are pointless.

They only tell us what your nice expensive CPU can do.

Drop the multiplier to 9, and keep raising the HTT baseclock and tell us what the MAX achievable HTT Baseclock is, that's more of a motherboard test. I need to know what board will let me maximize a $100 or less CPU.

Thanks for your feedback. I'll investigate in this matter later this weekend and I will update my article.

Update: For pure HT link reference clock overclocking, I suggest going with a Gigabyte board. I have tested the ASUS M4A785TD-V EVO and the Gigabyte MA785GMT-UD2H, and the latter hit 260MHz easily.

I updated my article. See the overclocking section.

Nice review, thanks for the time you took. I'm really interested in the Hybrid crossfire performance though. Do you have a ATI 3450 around to try this out?

I want to see what sort of performance can be got from that setup in modern games with both the 3450 and the IGP overclocked to 800 Mhz +.

All the reviews for these boards seem to leave out any testing of Hybrid crossfire.

My friend is thinking of using a hybrid crossfire setup for a little while until the ATI 5750 is out but we're unsure if this will perform well enough even in the short term.

Pictures of the card have already been leaked, so we may see it sooner than later

Unfortunately no I don't have these low-end cards
