Ivy Bridge is in full swing since its introduction months ago, and Ivy Bridge's older brother, Sandy Bridge, will be phased out of Intel's line-up in the Fall of 2012. The best part of Ivy Bridge is a much more energy efficient processor design, and the only downside is some incresed heat. Ivy Bridge brings a performance boost over Sandy Bridge by shrinking the die to 22nm and increasing the transistor density with Intel's new 3D Tri-Gate Transistors. This keeps Intel's Tick Tock strategy rolling along.
ASUS introduced their Z77 motherboards with the P8 series and we have to say, the P8Z77-V Deluxe and Pro we reviewed, are another example of ASUS staying on top of the industry. These boards have some of the most creative and innovative features we have seen in some time. At that time, ASUS did not have any Republic of Gamer (ROG) motherboards ready to rock for the enthusiasts. But, just when you thought things were cooling off, ASUS heats things back up with the Z77 Maximus series. The Maximus series is available in the Gene, Formula and Extreme varieties, giving ASUS a "good / better / best" product lineup of choices for the gaming enthusiast.
Will it live up to The Republic of Gamers tradition? Let's dive in and see. Click through for the full review.
