ASUS makes a triple play with Core 2
Subject: Motherboards | August 24, 2006 - 11:46 AM | Jeremy Hellstrom
The Tech Report contrasts three Core 2 motherboards from ASUS. The P5B Deluxe Wifi-AP Edition (Intel 965), P5N32-SLI SE Deluxe (nForce4 SLIX16) and P5W DH Deluxe (Intel 975X) are all present. They all have differences, one of the biggest for gamers being that the Intel965 board doesn't support SLI or CrossFire, though it does have WiFi, the nVIDIA board supports SLI, and the 975X supports CrossFire.
"Asus is in the enviable position of having a trio of high-end enthusiast boards primed for the Core
2. More impressively, each board brings something unique to the table. The P5B Deluxe Wifi-AP Edition,
for example, is Asus's first stab at Intel's new P965 Express chipset. The P5W DH Deluxe relies on an
older 975X Express chipset, but it boasts a suite of new "Digital Home" accessories in addition to
CrossFire support. For those who prefer their multi-GPU graphics tinted green, there's the P5N32-SLI
SE Deluxe, which leverages Nvidia's nForce4 SLI X16 chipset for what may be the fastest desktop
graphics platform around."
