Note: Benchmark Reviews offers the ASUS P8Z77-V Deluxe Benchmark Performance Tests and Features Overview in separate articles.

ASUS' motherboard product line is so diverse that even reviewers need a score card. For LGA1155 alone, there are nine different chipsets in ASUS' current offerings, and subdivisions within each chipset line. There are eleven current ASUS Z77-based motherboards, and that's not counting a few that have been shown to the press but not formally introduced yet.

ASUS enthusiast motherboards fall into three broad catefgories: the Republic of Gamers series, with features that cater to extreme overclockers and gamers; specialty lines like the workstation oriented "WS" series, and the mainstream line. What Benchmark Reviews has today is the top end of ASUS' mainstream P8Z77 line, the P8Z77-V Deluxe.

Every panel on this box (including the flip-up lid over the display window, through which you can see your shiny new motherboard without having to open the box) is covered with layer upon layer of feature and specification listings. This motherboard seemingly has everything except the kitchen sink, but how much of it can you really use?

One problem with reviewing products like this is that there are so many features that a comprehensive review simply becomes too large and unwieldy, and most of our readers wouldn't have the time or inclination to wade through it. Starting with this review, Benchmark Reviews will split motherboard reviews into three separate articles: an overview, in which the motherboard's packaging, accessories, appearance, hardware, and features are discussed; a performance review containing our benchmarks, results, and a score and optional award if merited, and finally a features review in which unique or proprietary features are described and measured. We hope this new layout will provide our readers with a better experience, and we solicit your comments on it.
