It is a real challenge to bring you information on all the new motherboards that AnandTech receives. Our standard in-depth motherboard reviews require a great deal of time in testing since we dig deeply into layout, BIOS, and the company's warranty/RMA policies and procedures. There is simply not enough time to cover every motherboard to that level of detail.
Going forward, the full AnandTech motherboard reviews will be reserved for new, significant, or particularly noteworthy motherboards and memory that are coming to market. The other interesting products will be covered in FIRST LOOK reviews.
With FIRST LOOK we will be bringing you a more condensed review of new computer equipment. Since you expect AnandTech to objectively test and compare equipment, First Look will have an abbreviated, but representative, suite of DX8, DX9, and Open GL games. General Performance and Encoding will be reported by comparing Future Mark 2004 scores. FIRST LOOK reviews are not intended to be in-depth. They will concentrate on the unique features of a new product to bring you more information faster.
