From the announcements I have seen it looks like a great motherboard, especially if you make it a habit to do your editing in the Arctic, a tropical rain forrest or other extreme conditions.
Keep in mind that the next generation, like in CSNext, is underway. The new X68 motherboards with the Patsburg octo core and 8 DIMM slots (for 32 GB of DDR4-3200 or faster memory) and lots of SATA 600 ports are expected in about a year or slightly more, to coincide with CS6 or CSNext. That outlook keeps me from getting a 980X now.
Looks very nice if the marketing is accurate. Gotta love ASUS and their creativity with new design features.
X68 oh no. Now something other to wait for. lol
Since I broke down a got a new system to replace my XP I might be able to wait for it.
I like the idea of 8 slots with faster ram.
The brown on this motherboard reminds me of the Noctua cooler.
Thanks for the heads up on the X68.
I will have to do some googleing or if you have good links please post.
How is your Dutch? I have some info on DDR4, quad channel memory and the Patsburg, but unfortunately only in Dutch.
No go on Dutch. lol
I will try googling later.
this looks like a good board.. I was going to get the Asus P6x58-e board but after seeing this i'm having 2nd thoughts.. It seems to have all the same features but $30 cheaper.. Am I missing something here?
this looks like a great MB but I see on the spec is not 8x DIMM but 6 x DIMM, Max. 24 GB, DDR3 1866/1800/1600/1333/1066 Non-ECC,Un-buffered Memory or am I missing something ?
I'd be interested in comments comparing the ASUS P6X58D Premium to the Sabertooth X58---Particularly as a CS5 editing platform.
hi, most asus boards will perform very similar, it is all down to the parts you use with the boards. that will make a difference.
I am out of the office until 09/13/2010.
