The brand's unique identifier for a product. Multiple product codes can be mapped to one mother product code if the specifications are identical. We map away wrong codes or sometimes logistic variants.
The motherboard or mainboard is the component that connects all the different parts of your computer. Often it has some integrated components like a sound card, enabling your computer to play sound, or a network card, to connect your computer to the network. The standard form factor (size) for motherboards is ATX, you need at least a midi-tower to fit one of those in. Micro-ATX motherboards are often more complete and have more onboard devices, like a video board and fit in smaller cases, but are generally less expandable.

So we have seen for the first time what Asus has done with the Xpress 200 CrossFire chipset. As we have noted it has not gotten the same treatment as the A8N32-SLI Deluxe as many accessories, features, and software are not included here. The BIOS wo...
ASUS is a computer component manufacturer based in Taiwan manufacturing motherboards, CPUs, video cards notebooks and more. They are a Tier-1 motherboard manufacturer with chipsets based upon virtually every chipset released from Intel, ATI, NVIDIA, an...
Bottom line ASUS has done a wonderful job with the A8R-MVP motherboard. The board came with all the features, performance and bundle that you want from a Crossfire motherboard today. The features chart shows the A8R-MVP to be among the highest feature-rich motherb...
When CrossFire was launched it required an external dongle to work with a master carfd. However, even though it's barely even arrived it's already changed. While X1800 master cards have yet to appea, according to ATI, the entry-level X1300 and mid-range X...
Mainboards for the Athlon 64 platform on chipsets from ATI Technologies have been drawing much interest lately just because they are an always-welcome alternative to the dominating nForce4 chipsets from Nvidia, but the tests we conducted earlier showed...
Good ATI Crossfire technology support, Relatively low price, Serial ATA controller with SATAII, NCQ and RAID 5 support, No fans for mainboard component cooling and intellectual management system for external fan rotation speed control.
Bad Unstable operation with 1T Command Rate, Insufficient overclocking options, Not the best Gigabit Ethernet controller connected to the PCI bus, Not the most optimal audio codec with limited audio connectivity.
Bottom line First of all I would like to say that ATI Radeon Xpress 200 Crossfire chipset looks much better when it is bundled with ULi M1575 South Bridge rather than with the default ATI SB450. ULi chip is faster and boasts much more up-to-date specifications. It...
ALTHOUGH ATIS CROSSFIRE multi-GPU rendering technology has become a reasonable alternative to SLI, the Radeon Xpress 200 CrossFire Edition chipset is still saddled with a comparatively poor south bridge chip. ATIs SB450 is missing a number of handy f...
Bottom line Fanboys can debate the merits of CrossFire versus SLI until theyre blue in the face, but it doesnt take a fanboy to appreciate what Asus has done with the A8R-MVP. At less than $100 online, the board is easily one of the cheapest CrossFire-capable mo...
Asus continues to be on the forefront of technology when it comes to motherboards and their latest offering, the A8R-MVP is a prime example. The board is based on the ATI XPress 200 CrossFire Edition north bridge chipset, previewed back in May and fi...
Bottom line The Asus A8R-MVP is among the first ATI CrossFire motherboards to hit the market. With solid performance, features and a low cost this board should definitely be on your list if CrossFire peaks your interest. Our forums are a great place to find mo...
When the Asus A8R-MVP landed on our doorstep, we were frankly a bit disappointed. Here was the first Asus board built with the ATI Crossfire AMD chipset and the first board to market that uses the ULi M1575 south bridge instead. If you recall from our...
