Many people have been wondering when we will see more high-end extreme enthusiast processors from Intel. The last Extreme processors Intel released were the LGA2011 Sandy Bridge-E chips. We do know that we will see Ivy Bridge-E processors in Q3 2013, but it seems just a year after Ivy Bridge-E launches it will be replaced by the Haswell-E platform. Haswell-E will be compatible with the X99 chipset that we have been hearing about for a while now and will bring DDR4 to consumers.
Today we are taking a look at one of ASUS’s mainstream Intel X79 motherboards. This board is the first step up from the ASUS P9X79 board, which we would consider entry level. The board has a really great design, optimal cooling and of course all of the great features you would expect from ASUS. Some of those features include Dual Intelligent Processors 3 with New DIGI+ Power Control, support for up to 64GB of DDR3 and ASUS’s SSD caching. Want to see what this board is all about?
