    ASUS unveiled its new workstation-grade socket LGA1155 motherboard that supports 2011-series Core i3/5/i7 processors, as well as, upcoming Xeon LGA1155 processors, the P8P67 WS Revolution. It is packed to the brim with features. To begin with, the CPU is powered by a 16+2 phase digital VRM, the socket is wired to four DDR3 DIMM slots for dual-channel memory, supporting speeds of over DDR3-2200 MHz. There are four PCI-Express 2.0 x16 slots, supporting 3-way SLI/CrossFireX, probably using a bridge chip such as the NVIDIA nForce 200, and three PCI-E x1.

    Storage features include four SATA 6 Gb/s ports, and four SATA 3 Gb/s. Connectivity features include two Intel GbE controllers, 8+2 channel HD audio, two USB 3.0 ports, and a number of USB 2.0 ports. Other features include a system diagnostics card, EPU energy-efficiency processor, TurboV Processing Unit (TPU), and Quick Gate instant-on OS. ASUS will announce pricing when it most probably releases this board in January.

    :laugh: TPU switch

    When i first saw the pic on the front page i assumed it was MSI until i read the title. (was scrolling up not down so didn't see the asus logo, only just saw it when i went back to the front page to carry on browsing)

    I'm curious why most company's now seam to be going to motherboard heat sinks that have very thick fins compared to not long ago when they all seamed to have razor thin ones, I'm curious is how well they do at cooling compared to thin fins but i admit they look less likely to slice open my fingers :laugh:

    I'm pretty sure it is one of those brownish boards, in most lights they all look black but then with a very bright light source like a camera flash they look brown.

    they look brown from the copper bleeding through it.

    I guess this is the step down board from the deluxe version. Only difference is the 5.25 bay usb 3.0 and the color of the pcie slots.Strange that ASUS is going back to there Blue- white schemes and Gigabyte is going away from it.lol

    When you flip that switch, the board logs on to TPU, and starts a "I'm a hopeless n00b, please help" thread.

    Er. I don't get it. Most of the other Asus 1155 boards support 3way sli/xfire. What does this add besides a cooler looking slot layout?

    :roll:

    Would the digital power phases and quick gate also make it different form the rest?

    I have not really seen much about quick/express gate on any other boards recently, although i doubt i would use it as my pc is on 24/7 i still thought it was a nice feature when i first saw it a while back.

    NF200 seems very common for P67 boards. NIce slot layout, Molex for DIMM power, maybe 4-phase DIMM power?

    TPU =Thermal Processing Unit?!?

    Do I spy a switch to really disable audio?

    +1 Another tendency is no fins at all, just look at P67 chipset HeatSink:shadedshu. Even if it has heatpipe It makes me think It will be very hot chipset without the fins. I guess it's all for the looks of board. It seems like they are firing engineers and hiring designers.

    Should have added an SAS6G controller instead of a SATA6G one. Otherwise looks good.
