    Here are the first pictures of ASUS P9X79 Deluxe, the company's premium segment LGA2011 motherboard based on the X79 chipset. This features in ASUS' main motherboard lineup, and not sub-lineups such as Republic of Gamers (ROG) or The Ultimate Force (TUF). The P9X79 Deluxe is loaded with features and connectivity options. To begin with, the LGA2011 socket is powered by a next-generation Digi+ VRM design by ASUS, driven by Dual Intelligent Processors III (next-generation Energy Processing Unit (EPU) chip and TurboV Processing Unit (TPU)). Like with the ROG Rampage IV Extreme, VRM is spread across three sides of the socket, and each cluster of MOSFETs is cooled by heatsinks. The socket is wired to eight DDR3 DIMM slots in two sets of four slots, supporting quad-channel DDR3. The memory VRM uses a Digi+ design, too.

    Among the six expansion slots, there are four PCI-Express x16 slots, and two PCIe x1. The PCH gives out six SATA ports, two 6 Gb/s (white), four 3 Gb/s (blue), the two additional 6 Gb/s ports come from a third-party controller. There are two power-eSATA ports on the rear panel. The eight USB 3.0 ports on this board are spread across as six ports on the rear-panel, and two via standard header. Other connectivity includes 8+2 channel HD audio, two gigabit Ethernet connections, USB 2.0, and Bluetooth.

    This board features USB 3.0 Boost (works to improve throughput), ASUS' proprietary SSD caching technology that's similar to Intel Smart Response, BT GO! 3.0 (lets you monitor and tune the clock speeds, voltages, and fan speeds using a Bluetooth-enabled smartphone), and a new version ASUS UEFI setup program.

    ASUS will use the same exact PCB on a slightly lower-priced model called the P9X79 Pro, which will lack some of the features and connectivity found on this board (such as one of the two GbE connections, a set of USB 3.0 ports, perhaps even BT GO!, etc.)

    YAY no fans. This board looks like the best option so far (for me). Slot spacing is OK too.

    Three nice looking boards from them so far, I might just go Asus again! Haven't had one of their motherboards in a long time.

    Can't wait to see their SB-E WS model. Nearly assured to get a decent 4 or 8 port controller to make up for the lack of ports on the PCH.

    I'm not sure I like that the air from the CPU cooler will be blowing over half of the RAM slots if you are exhausting toward the rear of the case.

    Nice looking board, though.

    Well if things keep popping up with good news then I may have to say goodbye to my LGA775 and get LGA2011
