Introduction



Product on review: 990FX Professional
Manufacturer: ASRock
Street Price: £160 inc. VAT

The second 990FX board we’ve had the pleasure to review is here, and once again, it’s a special one. The ASRock 990FX Professional marks the pinnacle in ASRock’s AMD lineup and is designed squarely for gamers and overclockers. Designed as part of the ‘Fatal1ty’ range of products with Jonathan ‘Fatal1ty’ Wendel, this board aims to provide not only top end performance, but a whole range of useful features.

This is the first AMD ASRock motherboard Vortez have looked at and 990FX Professional has some tough competition, so let’s not waste any further time and see how it fares.
