Gaming Performance

When paired with a GeForce GTX 580, it's interesting to note that the A8-3850 isn't much slower than the Phenom II X6 1100T in Battlefield Bad Company 2. The A75 boards were only separated by a few frames, but the ongoing trend remained unchanged: Asus' product was fastest, followed by Gigabyte, while Asrock sat on the bottom.

In Far Cry 2, the F1A75-V managed to match the average frame rate of the Phenom II X6 1100T/890FX configuration, while the A75-UD4H and Extreme6 were two and four frames behind on average.

All of the A75 motherboards outperformed the Phenom II setup in Dirt 3, though the F1A75-V Pro remained ahead of the pack.
