ASRock appears to have continued this trend. Today I will be looking at ASRock’s new P45 motherboard, the ASRock P45X3 Deluxe. There are some goodies found on this board that aren’t on ASRock’s other P45X3 motherboards. But even with the extras, this board has an incredibly low price. Read on to find out about the ASRock P45X3 Deluxe!
To satisfy the desire for enthusiast/gamer mATX motherboards, Asus has created a new series of boards, the ROG Gene series. These mATX form factor motherboards sport the features of Asus’ high-end ROG motherboards. The first of these to be seen was the Rampage II Gene, an mATX i7/X58 board. Our friends at Asus have now released an mATX Socket 775 ROG Gene motherboard, the Maximus II Gene. It looks to be the answer to what I’m looking for, an upper-end mATX board with Intel P45 chipset. Designed with the enthusiast/gamer in mind, it should be the platform for an awesome LAN party rig, which definitely fits my high-performance/high-portability desire. Will the Maximus II Gene do the job? Read on to see!
