    ASUS today announced that its Z87-C is the first motherboard in the world based on the Intel Z87 chipset to receive Windows Hardware Quality Labs (WHQL) certification for Window 8.1. The ASUS Z87-C is a Socket 1150 motherboard for use with 4th generation Intel Core, Pentium and Celeron processors. WHQL certification is a confirmation from Microsoft that both the ASUS Z87-C hardware and drivers are fully reliable and compatible with Windows 8.1. ASUS makes the best motherboards in the world and this pioneering WHQL certification for Windows 8.1 is further testament to the fact. ASUS is a key Microsoft partner and offers wide support for Windows 8.1 with Intel and AMD-based motherboards. WHQL certification for other models will be announced at a later date.

    Maybe they should make another monitor and slap a certified for windows sticker on it like everyone did with vista :roll:

    And there's nothing reliable about intel's drivers. Samsung has a whole run of laptops that read at 2 MB/s with intel sata drivers.

    I hate press releases.

    I remember speakers with Vista logos. Even though you could stick them to an MP4 player that never even heard of Vista back then...

    That's a mighty bold statement there. I'm sure AsRock, Gigabyte, and MSI might disagree with.
