MSI X570-A PRO Extended ATX AMD Motherboard

<![CDATA[

The MSI X570-A PRO motherboard is a some what basic yet very well off motherboard for its price. 

This motherboard is outfitted mainly for use in a gaming pc.

The specs

CPU

The CPU’s compatible with the AM4 socket of this motherboard are the Ryzen series 2 and 3 processors.

PCIe

It has one PCIe 16x 4.0 slot, one PCIe 16x 3.0 slot, and three PCIe 1x 3.0 slots.  

RAM

For the ram it has dual channel  DDR4  support with overclocked speeds up too 4400 MHz and a highest base speed of 2667 MHz and supports up too 128 Gb of memory.

Storage

This motherboard has 6 SATA 3 ports and 2 M.2 SATA 3 ports

recap

I believe that at the price point of $159 this motherboard is well outfitted yet comes short it the storage department with both the M.2 slots being SATA 3 as apposed to nvme, though with 6 SATA 3 ports there is plenty of room for upgrade ability using an SSD. With RAM speeds of up too 4400 MHz overclocked and PCIe x16 slots that are able to be used with AMD crossfire. The AM4 slot with the latest Ryzen series support makes this a versatile motherboard while not being the absolute best for heavy load can yet be used as a mid range workstation on top of being a gaming forward motherboard.

AMD RYZEN 9 3950 cpu

This CPU is a very high powered CPU that is more aimed towards a gamer user who has lots of extra money to spend on a high quality build. It’s got lots of processing power for any needs for any type of creator also, running efficiently with something recommended like an AMD RX 5700 graphics card.

It is a 3rd generation series AMD processor that fits an AM4 socket. It includes,

  • 16 cores
  • 3.5 GHz
  • 8MB L2 Cache
  • 64MB L3 Cache
  • DDR4 3200 Memory type
  • 4.0 PCI

It’s power is noticeable when considering its 72MB cache memory and its PCIe 4.0 speeds, 16 cores and 32 processing threads, giving double graphics and storage bandwidth, it delivers a smooth gaming experience for any professional, looking for that new CPU to give their experience a lot more edge. It has been considered the most powerful 16 Core processor that has been made.

I would recommend this CPU to anyone who has the money to pay for it, since it goes for 799.99 on Newegg.com. It is a great CPU for any Gamer or designer and creator to process their art, videos, photos, games and many more. It is definitely created for professional people considering the price tag, but investing this kind of money into a CPU can be efficient and future proof any cpu difficulties you might run into for a while into the future.

Intel Core i7-8700 Review

The Intel Core i7 8700 (8th Generation) is a great option for any computer. This CPU is especially great for a gaming motherboard. It has all the features that anyone and especially you need. It has great memory and great speed for all your gaming needs.

So you’re probably wondering, “what socket does this CPU even use?” Well, this CPU is fitted for the LGA 1151 (300 series) sockets. You have to watch what socket your motherboard has so your motherboard will work.

Cache is very important to the CPU and for the motherboard especially. Cache is memory that is directly stored in the CPU. This picture is a perfect representation of cache. This CPU has 12 MB (MegaBytes) of L3 Cache. What this is basically saying is that the speed is 12 million cycles per second.

The number of cores is important as well. The cores in a CPU are like the “brains” of the CPU. This CPU has 6 cores and 12 threads as well as “Hyperthreading.” This CPU can do a lot for the user.

This CPU is also fast with 3.2 GHz (GigaHertz) as its clock speed. This means that it goes around in 3.2 billion cycles per second.

I would recommend this CPU for anyone. I would recommend this CPU to gamers as well. The performance of this CPU is amazing with how fast it can go and all the cache and hyperthreading it can do. To read more, the links below will help.

Review of The AMD Ryzen 7 3800x

AMD also known as (Advanced Micro Devices) sells a wide variety of hardware products for a computer.  AMD manufactures a wide variety of products such as Microprocessors, Motherboard Chipsets, Embedded processors, and Graphic processors for servers, work stations, personal computers, and embedded system applications.  Out of all the things that AMD manufactures, they are most commonly known for there CPU’s (Central Processing Unit).  AMD is only behind Intel,  who supplies processors for computer system manufacturers, and also manufactures Motherboard Chipsets, network interface controllers & integrated circuits, flash memory, graphics chips, and embedded processors.

AMD was founded on May 1, 1969 by Jerry Sanders.  Their headquarters is located in Santa Clara, California, and is very close to the Intel company.

 

 

 

 

So as you can see the company’s are very close to each other that if they wanted to have a meeting, they could walk to either places buildings.

So Back to the CPU Review: 

The AMD Ryzen 7 3800x is a 7th Gen CPU that AMD makes.  In my opinion, this CPU would work on many sorts of motherboards except for Gaming Motherboards.  For your Home PC, this would be a CPU that has all the stuff you would ever dream for in a CPU for a low price.  This would also work on the Business PC because it is a very cost efficient CPU that has a lot of cache and a average clock speed.

SPECIFICATIONS:

CLOCK SPEED:

  1. Base Clock: 3.9 GHz
  2. Max Boost Clock: Up to 4.5 GHz

CACHE:

  1. L1 Cache: 512 KB
  2. L2 Cache: 4 MB
  3. L3 Cache: 32 MB

SOCKET TYPE:

  1. AM4 

NUMBERS OF PROCESSORS AND THREADS:

  1. # of Cores: 8
  2. # of Threads: 16

PASSMARK RATING:

  1. 24517 (higher the better)

This CPU can be found on Newegg.com for $379.99.  This steal of a price makes it a very cost efficient CPU.

After reviewing the specs, I would say that this CPU is definitely on the high end.  Whether you are using this CPU in a home computer, or using it in your computer at work it should fit all your expectations.  The only one category motherboard it would not be valuable for would be for a Gaming computer.  It even has a low price! You can tell by all the advanced specs and the wonderful Passmark rating that this CPU is definitely worth the buy, and I for sure recommend this CPU.

You would buy this motherboard to put in your Grandma’s PC so she can get on google. This motherboard is on the older side so if you are looking for a good gaming motherboard this motherboard is not the best option out there. This motherboard goes for about $79 on (www.newegg.com) .

Specifications:

  • Intel® B85 Express Chipset

I personally would not recommend this motherboard to anyone. After reading reviews from Amazon, Newegg ,and a few other sites it seems to have a few problems. Also this motherboard is old it supports 4th Gen Intel CPU’s for a motherboard this old to still be $79 dollars is kind of ridiculous. It also takes DDR3 RAM which is outdated and much slower than DDR4 RAM. So as I stated before I would not recommend this motherboard to anyone.
