ASUS' Haswell 8-Series Motherboard Lineupby Anand Lal Shimpi on June 4, 2013 12:00 PM EST

Like clockwork, JJ from ASUS showed up at the studio last month with a ton of 8-series Haswell motherboards in tow. JJ gave us a tour of what's new with the new platform as well as provided some color on how some of the changes to Haswell (e.g. Fully Integrated Voltage Regulator - FIVR) impacted ASUS' motherboard design. You can also see me get super excited about one of ASUS' new ROG features in the video.
JJ stuck around for a while and we've got 3 more videos coming including a tour of their new UEFI setup and a guide to Haswell overclocking.

Panzerknacker - Tuesday, June 4, 2013 - linkAlso out of sync for me, and I recommend the use of some softer materials in the recording room since the sound becomes ugly like this.
Also waiting for Richland benchmarks, Haswell kinda seems more like a notebook thing, those desktop Haswell chips show only power consumption improvements and barely any performance gains, not interesting for me.
b3nzint - Tuesday, June 4, 2013 - linki heard haswell is even hotter than ivb. can u make a review on that issue pls.
Rajinder Gill - Wednesday, June 5, 2013 - linkHaswell has the iVR (on-die voltage regulation), so it's Ivy temps plus say 10 Celsius. The heat of the power circuitry has to go somewhere :)
macmuchmore - Tuesday, June 4, 2013 - linkI am still waiting for the ThunderboltEX card for my P8Z77-v Deluxe - Totally feel like I was baited and switched because of this. I would never have bought this motherboard if they had not said it would be available. Total BS. LOVE ASUS, but the way they have handled the ThunderboltEX is AWFUL!!!
macmuchmore - Tuesday, June 4, 2013 - linkOh - and I have tried to contact ASUS many times over the past year and half the time they do not even know what the ThunderboltEX card is... just awful!
sna1970 - Wednesday, June 5, 2013 - linklol you are an idiot if you think they will connect you to their tech team .. you were just talking with an operator ....
They do know , but the people who know , wont waste their time checking 1 billion emails per day.
be real ok ?
imaheadcase - Wednesday, June 5, 2013 - linkI've never heard it called A-sus, most people I know pronounce it "Uh, sus".
Dahak - Wednesday, June 5, 2013 - linkI would not call this a lineup, it does not really talk about the differences between the boards. other than ROG,TUF, and mainstream.
I would call this more a Z87 Motherboard lineup feature look.
I hope there will be a more traditional lineup review looking at or comparing the boards
mharding - Wednesday, June 5, 2013 - linkWill there be a transcription so that I can read it quickly instead of watching it slowly?

Join that trial and you can play the video at 1.5x or 2x speed.
Access those settings via the cogwheel, same menu as quality settings.
