ASUS P9X79 Deluxe Intel LGA 2011 Review

Intel X79 Express Chipset »


Although a lot of attention is paid to ASUS's "Republic of Gamers" brand of motherboards, ASUS still releases some pretty serious products within its "normal" brand offerings. ASUS has sent us one of those products, based on the Intel X79 Express platform, aptly named the P9X79 Deluxe.

The P9X79 Deluxe is the high-end product that forms the real basis for the other P9X79 boards released just a short while ago, all of which boast a pretty hefty lineup of features. Quite a few of these features are found throughout the entire lineup of ASUS motherboard products, like VRM control and BIOS design, something that ASUS has spent considerable effort optimizing over the past 18 months or so, but there is also a few new ones, too. Will the P9X79 Deluxe live up to the standard and hype ASUS themselves created?
