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.

    OMG his voice drives me crazy. Its so monotone and he is extremely difficult to listen to. He needs to simplify his vocabulary a bit. He can easily say a lot of the same things using much simpler wording. /endofrant

    otherwise, excellent review anand

    Gold < Blue.

    Gold < Red.

    Gold < Gray.

    Gold looks so tacky it's not even funny. Let's hope Asus gets their sense back and returns to the trustworthy, awesome blue. Next thing you know they'll go insane like Razer and make everything glow green.

    I would love to see the evaluation of differences in Asus Z87-Deluxe/Dual and the Asus Z87-Deluxe

    The Dual has Thunderbolt and comes bundled with the NFC box. :)

    Is there also a m-ITX roundup planned? I would love to see this.
