Is there a point to reviewing a 4-month-old board right when it's replaced?
I review what arrives on my doorstep, no questions asked. And no, I have not been sitting on this review for months, either...it's been in my house for less than two weeks.
Now, we don't have many P67 board reviews, and all of these boards I've done, and am doing, fit within the same price range.
While there are other options out there, these boards are still all viable options to build a system, and now that I've had the boards, I can help you guys out when you run into issues, or something doesn't work right.
I'll be spending the next couple of weeks pushing both boards that I've reviewed lately through some serious hardcore OC testing, and looking to either expose weaknesses, or strengths, at the upper clock limits that most users will be at, as well as looking for memory tweaking so that like with previous products, when someone needs settings for memory, or whatever, I can just rattle off what they need to set, and they can move on.
Keep in mind as well, although you may not have interest in this product, that doesn't mean others will not. We do have a global audience here on TPU, so there is going to be many users who need different things from thier PCs, and maybe this board is exactly what they are looking for.
I am always working to bring you guys reviews at or just after launch, but at the same time, I'm stil lrelatively new to the motherboard review scene, and it takes time for manufacturer's to get things set up to send stuff out, as they do need to know that they aren't wasting thier time when handing out review products. Each company has limited marketing funds, and I've gotta weasle my way in. I think we're off to a great start.
