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.

kamochi - Tuesday, June 4, 2013 - linkIs the video out of sync for anyone else?
slayernine - Tuesday, June 4, 2013 - linkIt gets out of sync past halfway through the video.
Ryan Smith - Tuesday, June 4, 2013 - linkYes, it is. Let me see if I can get that fixed.
Ryan Smith - Tuesday, June 4, 2013 - linkAlright, that should fix it. Sorry about that, guys.
Meekers - Tuesday, June 4, 2013 - linkCould we get a break from the barrage of Haswell related reviews for some Richland benchmarks?
richardginn - Tuesday, June 4, 2013 - linkMeekers IS RIGHT!!!!!
Space69Monkey - Tuesday, June 4, 2013 - linkRichland is just a Trinity refresh with a Gesture software package. CPU and GPU are both the same, just run a little faster in frequency. This is why it's not really news.
Meekers - Tuesday, June 4, 2013 - linkSupposed to be much lower power and much better use of boost states to stay at higher frequencies longer. Would love to see benchmarks against a i3-3225 in a few games and general use applications. Do not need a whole review, just enough to see if Richland accomplished what AMD claimed and is worth the price premium they are looking for.
richardginn - Tuesday, June 4, 2013 - linkBS Space69Monkey!!! This is a news worthy item since it is a whole new batch of CPU'S from AMD. Release the benchmarks since the chips are already for sale at Newegg.com.
Even Haswell was a refresh of Intel's last offering.
Flunk - Tuesday, June 4, 2013 - linkHaswell is not a refresh, it's an updated architecture. The GPU is very different and the CPU is also improved.
