Why motherboard reviews are useless
ValourX writes "AMD effectively killed the frontside bus and the need for a discrete memory controller when it introduced the Athlon 64. That means that there is no longer a reason to measure motherboard performance. What does that leave for the review? A list of specs? What could I tell you in a review that the motherboard manufacturer's site and the buyer ratings at Newegg.com can't tell you more effectively?"
