ASUS P8Z77-V Deluxe Features Overview
Manufacturer: ASUSTeK Computer Inc.
Full Disclosure: ASUSTek Computer Inc. provided the product sample used in this article.
The introduction of a new chipset is always something I look forward to, frankly even more than the introduction of new CPUs. The reason's not so much for the new features of the chipset (if any), but rather to see what the top-tier motherboard vendors will do with it. ASUS has always been one to push the boundaries in innovative features, and their Deluxe motherboards-- that is, any motherboard they make with Deluxe appended to the name-- are among the most interesting (and the most expensive).
True, a Deluxe motherboard generally won't get you any better performance than one of their budget motherboards (although it might overclock better). And for the only-benchmark-performance-matters crowd, there's always the Republic of Gamers series. But if you're not the kind of user who schedules for regular LN2 delivery to a tank in your garage, it's hard to see what you could want in a socket LGA1155 motherboard that the P8Z77-V Deluxe didn't deliver.
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, and a lot of the type is pretty tiny! If ASUS had added any more features they'd have to add extra fold-out panels to accommodate them all.
Keep in mind that this article is only an overview of the extra features of this motherboard. Benchmark Reviews has separate reviews of this motherboard's overall components and benchmark performance for your reading pleasure.
