    Sapphire Releases the Pure Black 990FX (AM3+) Motherboard



    Well-known add-in board maker Sapphire Technology has today introduced the Pure Black 990FX, a high-end full ATX motherboard which is based on AMD's 990FX/SB950 chip combo and supports both AM3 and AM3+ processors.

    Sapphire's new board comes with a black PCB and features a passive cooling solution, Diamond Black chokes, four DDR3 memory slots, nine SATA ports (six are SATA 6.0 Gbps, the rest are 3.0 Gbps) and six PCI-Express x16 slots for CrossFireX setups.

    The Pure Black 990FX also has dual Gigabit Ethernet, one eSATA connector, four USB 3.0 ports (two on the back panel, two more via a header), Bluetooth, 7.1 channel audio, UEFI BIOS (and a Dual BIOS), a debug LED, and a MOLEX connector to supply graphics cards with more power. This motherboard has already started shipping and can be found listed with a price tag of 159.90 Euro.

    It costed about 6k. Spec was not so much fancy still very good in that time.

    DDR 2 up to 2 gb.

    ATI X300 chip set with builtin X200 vga.

    1 PCI EX.

    Processor upto Pentium D. Later this was a problem. Which was the reason of changing this mobo.

    Holy ¤¤¤¤! Now that's how you design motherboards, hats of to Sapphire. One of the best 990FX boards I've seen so far! @Arif69 , thanks

    UCC will surely bring this, considering it's an AMD board & the FM1 too.

    All of them were great of course, but not Pentium D, you should have gotten something for Athlon 64 X2.

    You do know that you are exaggerating there, the Bulldozer performs miserably when OCed & the power draw is immense. But what about stock ? About the light up another home in a village, give me a break. Blame the government for having such poor Electricity, even if you install a thousand Intel Processors, you won't achieve what you just said. Electricity prices have been increased, fuel resources are limited, nuclear power is just not feasible in Bangladesh. How do you expect to have electricity in villages, when the power grid can't even manage the main cities properly ?

    Moreover I did not see any electricity talk like this, when X58 & i7 9xx were released.

    ki hobe eto PCI-Express slot diye?
    Read the post above, the 990FX is capable of 16x 16x CF/SLI, just having more PCIe slots is sensible rather than PCI slots.

    It's almost 2012, PCI is old. Every new device uses PCIe now, having PCI is useless rather than having PCIe. Sound cards, RAID cards, PCIe SSDs. Oh &

    You do know that ATX boards can hold a maximum amount of 7 slots, high end cards were always dual slotted, starting from GTX8800. The point of having this many PCIe slots is for Tri SLI/CF support, or say installing an enthusiast sound card after having a dual GPU setup.

    Here Winty summed it up pretty nicely.

    @dipanzan Two Years down the road when you will pay double electricity bill for rising fuel costs then you will understand what i am talking about. Yes government is responsible partly for electricity outage. But we are also responsible somewhat for this load shedding too. We are not energy efficient. We waste billions of taka in traffic jam. We use expensive lightings for decorations of shopping malls which draws huge power. If all the airconditions installed in offices and homes of Dhaka are shut down then there would be no loadshedding in Bangladesh. But thinking like that is not sensible.You have to use technology. But we should all think about those poor people who have basic needs while using it.

    Some people here are building SLI machines with 1100T overclocked processors. How much the total power consumption. Around 400 Watts...What if this pc was not there. With 400 Watts you can light up 4 homes in a village. Think in economics perspective.. Resources are limited. We have to use them wisely. Today everywhere in dhaka we waste gas by using it for drying our clothes. But when gas reserve will deplete and we will have to buy other expensive forms of energy and inflation will skyrocket then we will realize how we have wasted our resources. And also building power plants one after another is also not a good idea. You need to import machineries from abroad which costs billions of taka. You have to pay that in dollar. This creates pressure on reserve and taka value decreases. Within 2 weeks taka is now 82 against dollar which was 76.

    If you have sound knowledge in Finance and Economics you will understand what i am talking about.

    @Wintereise Full sized PCI-Express slots are meant for graphics cards. Yes you can use other pci-ex devices in that slot but why not give small size PCI-Ex slots that we see in other boards.

    We will also have to think about 4-5 years down the line... AMD is not Intel's main competitor any more. Performance alone is not the main barometer for mainstream users today. "Performance per watt" is. "Performance per watt" for AMD is the worst at this moment.
    ARM architecture is the new sensation in the block. System on chip is the new talk of the town. PCs are becoming smaller and smaller. Now a days you will find smart phones as powerful as a 2008-2009 level standard pc which you can carry in your pocket. The "Performance Per Watt" for ARM is even higher than Intel. But it will take time to design support and software's for ARM architecture. As the world realizes, resources like oil and gas will be depleted one day, the developed countries are becoming for energy conscious.

    agree with you with most points but cpu er power consumtion leads to loadshedding?no matter how much u talk about but you CANNOT justify the point of the amd cpu [or any cpu for that matter ] leads to loadshedding,you just cant

    @mr_08 where did i say that power consumption of amd cpu's leads to load shedding. If that is apparent from my write up i am sorry. I did not mean that. What i want to say is buy a Core i5 2400 instead of Bulldozer or Phenom II X6. You can save 60-70 watts that way. Although in idle amd is also good. But load power consumption just seems ridiculous. if 50 users shifts to Core i5 from Phenom II X6 then 30-40 watts of less power consumption each (Sensible estimate i think) leads to 30X50= 1500 Watts of 1.5 KW of electricity savings. With that much power you can power up a whole village!

    Anyway i am straying off topic... Sorry everyone... wrong thoughts in the wrong place..

    Indeed you can, I see no problem with giving the user more options of what he can and can't run. In fact, I kind of appreciate it.

    I respect your words bhaiya, but as mr_08 said you can't blame a CPU for the sole reason of load shedding or say saving power. The charts you are showing is when the processor is 100% stressed. Now tell me do you guys run benchmarks all day ? Or say even run folding clients ? Lastly the no of users running SLI or say high end CPUs is very very low, hell most people are still on C2D's, so you are wrong on that part.

    And no I don't have a good knowledge about Finance or Economics, as I don't have those subjects. I'm more into Tech & Science. The way you put it, seems like PC users are creating a havoc on the country'r power consumption. There are people still using 10-12 year old fridges which can take up to a 500KWh per year & have 100s of 60-100W incandescent light bulbs & these suck up so much power than we don't even realize it.
    Or have A/C's running every day & night consuming 2-3.5KWH. On top of that, efficiency is another factor which chimes in when calculating the consumption of an appliance.

    About the last part, you can use PCIe x1 on a PCIe x16 slot, I don't know why you are against this. But the manufacturer is giving you an option to use the whole slot than say for e.g a limited PCIe x1 slot.

    And yes, pictures does say a thousand words. From your own link:
    http://www.xbitlabs.com/articles/cpu..._13.html#sect0

    You only cared to show the CPU power consumption. What about the other charts ? What I constantly try to tell you people is that, a system consumes that power when it's heavily stressed. Normal applications/games will never push a system as that much.

    Sorry for the OT, but I thought I should give a reply to make a better understanding of this. I mean no offence @BEIL.Mantis bhaiya, just my thoughts. No more from me, as this topic is already strayed too much.
