“Since ASRock was established in 2002 with the 3 C’s–Creative,
Considerate, and Cost-effective–we have seen their motherboards
continually improve. Even while their low price point remains the
same, the designs for these motherboards are constantly improving

motherboards even support ATI CrossFire and NVIDIA SLI, along with
Gigabit Ethernet, and Firewire IEEE-1394. One of the integral parts
of their designs has been boasting backward compatibility–such as
Conroe-supportive motherboards supporting DDR1/DDR2 and PCI

which delivers on several enthusiast motherboard features. ASRock’s
latest motherboard line-up leads us to the VSTA, which are a group
of motherboards optimized for Microsoft Windows Vista. Today at
Phoronix we have taken the 775Dual-VSTA and AM2V890-VSTA for a
