We like to thank ECS for providing the A890GXM-A (version 1.0) for our review today. I haven't commented much on the different versions of the board we are reviewing today, but users need to be aware that there is one major difference between...

With the price being right $120, it is hard to really knock anything on this board. It performs well, has a great feature set and will allow some mild overclocking. A little more effort in the BIOS for overclocking and this could have been a great...

The ECS A890GXM-A will cost you Rs. 7,500 with a three-year warranty which is a very good pricing considering the features this board has to offer. If you must have USB 3.0 then ECS has another version of the same board. The A890GXM-AU comes with a...

In all honesty, the ECS A890GXM-A is not as great as it seems to be on paper. Despite the few useful features, such as the third PCI-E x16 (running at x4), the Display Port and the CMOS clear button at the back, it overclocks like a poop; its HT...

The ECS A890GXM-A Black Edition is a fine example of an 890GX motherboard. The performance of the board was right up there with other 890GX boards and the board overclocked well. One issue with the ECS board was the lack of USB 3.0 support in terms...

The 890GX chipset is certainly a step forward for AMD, bringing new technologies to the masses in an effective and affordable package. The two prime features here are obviously SATA 6.0Gb/s and USB 3.0, preparing consumers for upcoming products that...

Final Words & Conclusion ECS did a really good job with this A890GXM-A motherboard. It offers just as much functionality and a very decent feature set as the competition does. Granted the overclock options and features from brands like MSI and ASUS...

The ECS Elitegroup Black series A890GXM-A's layout is very neat and looks very pleasing to the eye, specially the heat sink around the northbridge. The dark PCB is contrasted very well with bright warm colours on the PCI express slot, socket and...
