As great as the leap might be, performance-wise, from the previous Intel generation to the latest, certain functionalities that are widely in demand by consumers are still not natively supported by the Intel Sandy Bridge chipset. Most P67 motherboards available on the market are at the mercy of Intel’s design and closely follow the basic template and functionality aimed at a mainstream desktop market. There are a few motherboards, however, that stand out from the rest because of their thoroughly unique feature set aimed at a market beyond what other manufacturers are aiming for; a veritable Sui generis that is most likely to set a trend and be copied by other motherboard manufacturers later on.
With over 20 years in the business, age has worked for ASUS rather than against them. Armed with a wealth of knowledge gained from years of experience in motherboard manufacturing and design, ASUS has populated a diverse product line catering to all types of enthusiasts and price points. The latest addition to ASUS’ workstation board lineup is based on the P67 chipset and is designed to overcome the lack of PCIe x16 lanes natively available in LGA1155 systems.
The ASUS P8P67 WS Revolution was designed using the highest quality components delivering unparalleled performance and power efficiency, compared to other P67 motherboards. The ASUS P8P67 WS Revolution supports both 3-way SLI and Quad-CrossFireX, utilizing an NVIDIA NF200 chip to deliver optimal multi-GPU bandwidth not natively supported in Sandy Bridge systems. The ASUS P8P67 WS Revolution also has USB 3.0 functionality, an additional pair of SATA 6 Gb/s ports with RAID support and dual Intel Gigabit LAN. With a combination of server-class features, intelligent power saving options and superior overclocking capabilities, the ASUS P8P67 WS Revolution is elevating mainstream desktop computing to a level previously unheard of in the industry.
