Gigabyte GA-F2A85X-UP4 FM2 Motherboard Review: Overkill for Trinity?

Recommended Posts

Gigabyte has taken this particular bull by the horns and have applied

a very unique (so far) technology to the board. This is on top of all

the other marketing and engineering terms that we are quite familiar

with. The company itself is one of the top three manufacturers of

motherboards in the world, and they typically trail Asus in terms of

shipments but are still ahead of MSI. As with any motherboard

manufacturer, the quality of Gigabyte products has seen peaks and

valleys through the years. From what I have seen for the past few

years though, Gigabyte is doing very well in terms of overall quality

and value.

Quote: "Overall the GA-F2A85X-UP4 is a well rounded board with some

very interesting features. It has been a solid and stable motherboard

throughout testing, and the performance is right on par with the best

in the industry. The price is very reasonable for what is offered and

the end user can see the value that they have with all the extras

built onto the board.


The only problem is the CPU that is placed in it. Trinity is a good

product, but it is not a great product. Enthusiasts are not flocking

to it. While it is doing well in desktop applications that do not

require heavy CPU power and better than average graphics, it does not

require a motherboard nearly as stout as what Gigabyte offers."
