With all the wrangling and good stuffs raining around the Taiwan based Computex 2011, we decided to tick off some of the highlights for this great exhibit. Today we're going to start off with one of the most looked at chipset, AMD's 9-Series Chipset which was launched in the event.

The 9-series chipset supports the current AM3 socket and the upcoming AM3+ CPUs (based on the Bulldozer architecture). Although, the new processor design is yet to be released in the market, AMD released the new chipset anyway. Some manufacturers already handed out their new motherboards which carry this new chipset such as ASUS, Gigabyte, MSI and ECS. The great thing about it is that you can still use your Phenom II, Athlon II or any AM3 processor on this motherboard and reserve it for upgrade options when the Bulldozer CPU comes out in the next couple of months.
Basically, the AMD 9-Series chipset is similar to its previous model (the 8-series) except for the fact that it supports the upcoming AM3+ processors. So, if you look at it from AMD's point of view...the new 9 series is to easily tell if the specific motherboard supports the newer AM3+ processors.

The AMD 9-series comes in different models and these are: AMD 990FX, AMD 990X and AMD 970. The demand for the motherboard which carry these chipsets will probably increase when the Bulldozer processors come into play in the following two months.

    Performance, Value, Practicability - These are the things I look for when purchasing Computer components. Getting the most out of what I can afford is the matter that I've consistently practiced. It doesn't take to be a rocket-scientist to know that, all I need is a keen sense in what's good and bad.
