ASUS Rampage IV Black Edition: Intended for the overclocking elite

As soon as some time passes without ASUS giving their competition a “homework”, we can safely expect an avalanche of exclusive products. This time it's the new motherboard which will make most of overclockers around the world drool. When we say Rampage IV, many will immediately start to daydream, and when we add Black Edition, we believe that will get even more attention. Whoever is paying attention to the motherboard scene knows that Rampage IV motherboard is the ultimate product of the ASUS company. Of course, since it was presented nearly two years ago, it was time for users to be reminded who has the best and best-equipped LGA2011 motherboard. We’re glad that ASUS didn’t decide to just implement black components, but completely refreshed it’s strongest LGA2011 RoG platform.

Gigabyte GA-X79-UP4: Friends forever

The best motherboard doesn’t necessarily have to be the one that has the most of everything, simply because some of us don’t use a great number of capabilities that a device has. True, we would all prefer to have a board from ASUS WS series because we it looks powerful, but six PCI-Express x16 is usable by, perhaps, a single-digit percent of users. On the other hand, a board such as Gigabyte GA-X79-UP4 is an excellent balance between capabilities, price and design. That doesn't mean that it's a cheap or a weak board. Since we're talking about a model based on Intel's X70 chipset with LGA 2011 base it implies that it's a product intended for demanding users.

Gigabyte GA-H81.Amp-UP: Gigabyte’s got talent

When someone mentions an Intel motherboard with H61, B75, H81 or a similar chipset, you usually think it's a default model that only exists to meet the standards. When you have to make a computer based on some of these models, you already know that configuration won't impress you. Still, Gigabyte managed to impress the users that can't afford a model that costs a couple hundred of euros.

ASUS X79 Deluxe & Intel Core i7 4820K: Ideal combination

Not a month goes by without ASUS presenting at least one motherboard model. Let’s be frank, we don’t believe that anyone can follow this pace and know what’s happening in their “kitchen”. Of course, the current theme is the new processors for LGA 2011 base that are based on Ivy Bridge core, and intended for the most advanced users. We’ve decided to combine neat and functional, so in this text, we’ll deal with one of these new processors, as well as the new ASUS motherboard.

AMD APU MBs: Wishful thinking or reality?

When you’re buying a new PC, you usually start off with the price and quality of components that you want. When someone says that he’s making an APU-based configuration, the most important thing is budget-oriented components. We’ve had the opportunity to test out two sides of the spectrum – affordable and modest ASRock model and the other side of the coin – Gigabyte G1.Sniper A88X.

Asus Maximus VI: Red-black wave

ASUS has a wide spectrum of products in all areas, which is constantly increasing. There are so many of them, that we’re presenting four models from the Republic of Gamers (ROG) series within one month. Of course, each of the models is very specific and intended for various users, but we cannot help but notice that ROG is somehow less exclusive now when there are so many iterations of it. Simply put, do you remember the first products of this series? They were at the center of attention of every magazine that reviewed them. Now? We have four of them in one month and since they look fairly similar, they aren’t that special. Luckily, they still have that same quality that defined them from the beginning. We can’t really say which one is the best.

Asus Maximus VI: David and Goliath…

Like we’ve already said, there are a large number of different ROG motherboards and it can be said that ASUS does great coverage of the market that wants this type of products. Whatever kind of motherboard you may want, ASUS will have it, and best examples of that are two products from the ROG line, which aside from the color scheme and premium quality, don’t have any other similarities. While Impact is a mini-ITX board, Formula is an armored colossus, armed to the teeth.

Gigabyte G1.Sniper 5: Flawless

Making a truly great board is really hard lately. Better power unit, more connections and overclock capabilities are as surprising as sun rising in the morning. Gigabyte managed to break the monotony with a board whose name doesn’t do justice to the creative approach they took with designing it.

ASUS Z87: Three’s a company

As usual, after presenting a new chipset, ASUS, as an important part of the market, very quickly presents its new models. That was the case this month, but we’ve received three models for testing. All of them are premium products and we immediately realized that there’s an interesting job before us. Each of the three boards is special in its own way, even though they don’t have much in common.

Gigabyte Z87X-UD3H: Firstborn

When Intel or AMD present a new chipset, their partners start a race who will be the first with a motherboard based on it. As with everything else, it’s important to be the first, whatever the race. Simply put, the first one is the most remembered, and hardware manufacturers know that all too well. Especially when it comes to motherboards, because differences were never smaller and everyone strives to outperform others even in the smallest details. This time, Gigabyte was the fastest with presenting a new board based on Intel’s Z87 chipset, which goes along with Haswell architecture.
