ECS KA3 MVP Extreme Crossfire Xpress 3200 Motherboard
While the ease of enabling SLI has really propelled nVidia's dual videocard solution into a mainstream product realm, ATI's 'Crossfire Edition' videocards seem destined to languish in obscurity for the rest of eternity. Put another way, it's telling when none of the major 3rd party manufacturers submit a major component of one of the "big two" videocard companies product lineup for review. PCSTATS will delve into these matters as we evaluate the new ECS Extreme KA3 MVP Extreme motherboard which is built upon the ATI 'RD580' CrossFire Xpress 3200 northbridge and ATI 'SB600' southbridge. ECS' KA3 MVP Extreme supports all socket AM2 processors on the market and accomodates 8GB of DDR2-800 memory in a dual channel configuration. Peripheral expansion comes care of a PCI Express x1 and two 32-bit PCI slots. The two PCI Express x16 slots are reserved for videocards, and operate with 16 PCI Express lanes each that connect directly to the 'RD580' Crossfire Xpress 3200 northbridge.
