ASRock First to Bring AMD AMP Support to 990FX James White August 5, 2012 Press Release We all know the focus for AMD right now is the release of Trinity APUs to the desktop market. Eventually the Piledriver architecture will migrate over to the AMD FX series of CPUs. This in mind, ASRock decided to take the first step with full support of AMP (AMD Memory Profiles) for the Fatal1ty 990FX Professional. You could technically wait until the BIOS is out of beta and tests have been done with memory to see if it improves performance. I will be doing this in the future I assure you; however, those who already have the ASRock Fatal1ty 990FX Professional motherboard can do it right now via the BIOS beta update. This is the kind of BIOS update I hope to see from the other top motherboard makers in the near future. You can fully expect compatibility issues in the beginning, but that is why it is still in Beta. Hopefully AMD follows through with AMP and strive to get it as a standard for all AMD boards.
