Asus and ATI, high power without the high price
Subject: Motherboards | November 25, 2005 - 10:21 PM | Jeremy Hellstrom
AnandTech received a nice surprise whe reviewing the entrance level ATI chipset based A8R-MVP from Asus. While this board is farily inexpensive and targeted at entrance level users, the features on the mobo and it's overclocking ability are impressive. The likely suspect in this case being the use of the ULi M1575 southbridge.
"If we always went with our assumptions, there would be no reason at all to test motherboards, and
thankfully, our first opinions are often proven wrong in the actual testing. As we began
benchmarking the A8R-MVP, we realized that our assumptions were completely wrong and this board
might prove to be the board many have been waiting for. It turns out that there is absolutely
nothing missing from the feature set of the A8R-MVP except the high price, and we think that you
will enjoy our journey with this board."
