Last year, maximum overclock data was added to our Performance graphs The overclocking performance graphs allow a visual comparison of the overclocking capabilities of tested boards. For more details on the specific overclocking abilities of a specific board, please refer to the Overclocking and Memory Stress Test section of individual board reviews.


Overclocking - A64 4000+ (Clawhammer)

The overclocking performance of the Asus A8R32-MVP Deluxe was outstanding. Overclocking reached 322 at a 1T Command Rate at the reduced multiplier, which is the highest 1T overclock that we have measured with this processor on air cooling. Performance at the stock 12X multiplier matched the highest stock overclock of 246 that we have tested with this CPU. Both results are at the top of our overclocking results ch arts. Considering that the competition at the top is the very best and, generally, the very expensive boards designed specifically for overclocking, the overclocking performance of the A8R32-MVP is all the more remarkable. Time will tell if this outstanding performance is the result of an excellent Asus board design, an RD580 chipset with great overclocking capabilities, or a combination of both.

    NewEgg still doesn't have them in stock, neither does Monarc Computers. Wonder how long it'll be before they get them and the prices drop.

    I've just gotten this mobo.. It's pretty sweet! I really like the ALC882 onboard sound! It's really crispy and all good :D

    Overall I don't have any issues with it. It's a damn good mobo!

    It is nice that manufactors listen, but why do they still bring out Motherboards for SLI and Crossfire, where the normal PCI cannot be used with their heigh end grafic cards - I am wondering ?

    No one has any RD580 boards in stock in the US. Hell, Newegg doesn't even have any listed! Looks like another classic paper launch to me.

    Please get a clue before posting. All these people complaining about not making proper comparisons because Anandtech went the extra step of testing the latest vid card from ati on their latest chipset in ADDITION to making a very fair comparison with what nvidia has to offer currently.

    Nice article, too bad people don't pay attention to the graphs before they complain about them.

    Moron. Did you happen to notice the "Out Of Stock" button?

    And what's with the bitching about proper comparisons, blah blah blah? Reply to the wrong thread, did we?
