ASUS P9X79 Motherboard Roundup
Intel’s Sandy Bridge-E processors and the new Socket 2011 are hitting the virtual shelves. And whenever there’s a new socket or chipset, many new motherboards hit the market. In this case, we have the X79 Chipset, and while this follows Intel’s "tick-tock" development strategy, the new chips may be more evolutionary than revolutionary, though they do bring some significant changes to the mix that promises new ways of thinking.
ASUS is known for producing a wide range of motherboards to suit just about any preference, need, or budget, and today we have three motherboards from their new X79 lineup for review. Each of these boards share many similarities but also some distinct differences, and rather than splitting them up into separate reviews, we’ve decided to compile them all into one big roundup. It’s a one-stop shop for some of the high-end ASUS X79 motherboards.
There’s a boatload of information to cover, so let’s dive in and see what ASUS is bringing to the table in this P9X79 motherboard lineup.
