ASUS Crosshair V Formula 990FX
Representing the upper echelon in performance, the ASUS Republic of Gamer products are no stranger to us, nor most of you we suspect. ROG products are well known in enthusiast circles, and this is typically where the boundaries are pushed. We’ve seen many ROG boards, and they cater to those who want peak performance and have the budget to afford such things.
Upcoming Bulldozer based desktop processors, known internally as Zambezi, will feature socket AM3+ which will be backwards compatible with socket AM3. The first release, code named LLANO, is scheduled for release in early June 2011.
First to the plate with the newest 990FX chipset is ASUS with their latest release the Crosshair V Formula. ASUS has diligently worked and planned the release perfectly in anticipation to the long waited release of AMD’s Bulldozer re-engineered architecture. Previous versions of the Crosshair have been power packed with the ultimate features both gamers and enthusiasts love so without due await, let’s see if the ASUS Crosshair V Formula lives up to its past predecessors’ potential.
