Asus are preparing for Bulldozer
Simon Telford / 5 years ago
As we all know AMD plans to unveil their new Bulldozer processor in June. Asus is already prepared to release its new motherboard to support the bulldozer platform; it’s called Sabertooth and will be using the 990FX + SB950 chipset. It has four DIMM slots allowing for up to 16GB of DDR3 2000MHz memory, and will support both Crossfire and SLI configurations. The board also has 6 different heat sensors which is able to transfer data in real time.

There isn’t that much cause for a rush though, as most of the high end Asus boards including the Crosshair IV Formula, and M4A89GTD PRO will already support the new set or processors, a full list can be found Here!
So is it really worth buying a new motherboard, especially if you already own something like the Crosshair IV? No, probably not, but at the end of the day, I can see a lot of people buying it simply because they can. Personally, I will probably buy into Bulldozer to see how it goes and then, and only then if the performance is good, will I upgrade the rest of my system. If not, there’s always Intel.
