The ASRock 890GM Pro3 is a mid-range micro ATX motherboard designed for multi-core AMD CPUs. DDR3 memory support, USB 3.0 connectivity and SATA 6 Gb/s hard drive connectors come standard. A single PCI Express x16 slot is available for use with AMD’s Hybrid CrossFireX technology.

The ASRock 890GM Pro3 is built on the AM3 socket, meaning Phenom II and Athlon II multi-core processors are compatible with this board. Since this product contains built-in Radeon HD 4290 graphics, users can add a separate video card for use with AMD’s Hybrid CrossFireX multi-GPU technology. While only one USB 3.0 port is built-in, a total of five high-speed SATA 6 Gb/s connectors are available for use with hard drives. A wide range of overclocking options are supported, while 100% Japanese-made capacitors allow for the ASRock 890GM Pro3 to accommodate overclocking with greater ease.
