Introduction

Intel has held the performance crown for some time with Sandy Bridge but with the Core i7 Extreme CPUs, the price tag comes at a premium and unaffordable to some. The newest core i7 3820 Sandy Bridge “E” processor with four cores and 10Mb of L3 cache is positioned in the midstream arena around $300. Now gamers looking for some extra horsepower need not look to the i7 3930K, 3960X or the 980X with a high dollar.

A similar issue arises with motherboards. Premium motherboards like ASUS ’ Sabertooth X79 carry a hefty price tag but their Sabertooth series has always offered robust and solid features with a bit more modest price tag. For quite some time, ASUS has branded both the Rampage and the Sabertooth series but they skipped a beat on the Z68 motherboards with the Sabertooth series.

It’s back now and we’re ready to put ASUS’ new addition, the Sabertooth X79 to the test. The question is: Will this bad ass looking motherboard live up to its TUF reputation? Let’s get things fired up and take a look.
