Linux gets Phenom-enal
IF YOU'RE A hardcore penguinite, you might be interested in knowing that Phoronix has posted their review of a 790FX Phenom chipset under Linux. In this particular case, itÃ¢â¬â¢s (once again) a Gigabyte kit (is it our impression, or has Gigabyte achieved an almost unquestionable control over review sampling?). ItÃ¢â¬â¢s a Ã¢â¬Åfirst looksÃ¢â¬Â article, but they seem to be confident about the moboÃ¢â¬â¢s compatibility on the other hand it sports a SB600 southbridge (not an SB700 as youÃ¢â¬â¢d expect).
