The EVGA board is likely to be one of the last Socket 939 boards we will review as the AMD platform has moved on to the AM2 platform. The tests and system are kind of outdated now, but since there's unlikely to be many motherboards on Socket 939 in the future, it makes little sense to change our test platform.
