Asus' latest Socket AM3 motherboard is based on the new AMD 890GX chipset, which includes a SATA/600 controller plus the new Radeon HD 4290 GPU with support for DirectX 10.1 and dual-stream Blu-ray. The board offers two USB 3 ports, plus a Core Unlocker switch that enables all usable cores on your CPU, potentially turning your X2 or X3 processor into a true quad-core model. Meanwhile, Turbo Key II automatically pumps up your processor to its highest stable frequency, and GPU Boost does the same for graphics. If you want to squeeze every drop of performance from an AMD CPU, the M4A89GTD Pro/USB3 makes it easy - although, arguably, you could buy a cheaper board and invest more in the processor in the first place.
