ASUS Sabertooth P67 Motherboard Review

Back in January of this year Intel launched their Sandy Bridge architecture, the replacement for processors based on socket 1156. These new socket 1155 based products were initially met with great praise from consumers and the press and we saw some feature packed motherboards based on the technology. Unfortunately an issue was discovered with the chipset and so production was halted while a new revision (B3) was issued and it is only now that we are beginning to see a wide range of revised products in stock across the world.

One of the first manufacturers to get their boards out in significant quantities is ASUS, who’s Maximus Extreme P67 board greatly impressed us a few months back. Today we have another of their models on our test bench, the B3 revision Sabertooth P67 and will be putting it through a selection of synthetic and real world tests to establish how it compares to the competition.

Last month Intel launched their Z97 chipset, essentially an evolution of Z87, which in many cases brought new features such as SATA Express and M.2 compatibility to the mainstream desktop market. There was of course no new CPU at that time with the existing socket 1150 processors working without issue in the new boards. Since then though Intel launched (along with some lower spec models) the Core i7-4790K, a model which sits at the top of their mainstream platform. Today we see how it compares to various other models when installed on Gigabytes Z97X Gaming 5 and paired with PowerColors new dual core 290X Devil 13.
