Last month, we took a look at AMD's new mainstream processor: the Athlon II 250. We were impressed with both performance and cost. Today, Benchmark Reviews looks at an equally impressive motherboard: the Gigabyte GA-MA770T-UD3P. Based on AMD's 770 series chipset, the MA770T-UD3P is one of the first mainstream motherboards to offer full support for AM3 processors and DDR3 memory. Throw in Gigabyte's Ultra Durable 3 manufacturing process and price tag of only $80, and it's easy to see why this board is quickly becoming a budget-build favorite.
AMD's transition from the AM2+ platform to the AM3 platform has been gradual, but significant. The same goes for the transition to DDR3, which can now be had for almost the same price as DDR2. With the Gigabyte MA770T-UD3P motherboard, both of these technologies are finally making their way into the mainstream, which should pair up nicely with AMD's new Athlon II family of processors.
In today's review, we'll look at four different AMD motherboards, each with a different combination of north bridge and memory support. From the high-end Asus M4A79T Deluxe, to the 780G based Asus M3A78-EM, we'll find out where the Gigabyte MA770T-UD3P fits in and what kind of performance to expect.
