    Es la sustituta de la 790GX y parece que llegarán en Mayo, quizás algo tarde para mi gusto. Y se supone que soportaran los nuevos Phenom X6, si no estoy equivocado.

    Tendremos que esperar a más modelos de AMD, supongo que se mejorara mucho. Eso si, en gráficos me esperaba algo mas.

    Vaya no vienen con dx11 eso habria sido un buen punto para amd pero bueno. La grafica no cambio mucho desde el 790. Nos tocara esperar mas para ver integradas con dx11
