We’ve just posted a new article at HotHardware in which we evaluate the features, performance, and overclockability of Asus’ new high-end P35-based offerings for Intel processors, the Blitz Extreme (DDR3) and the Blitz Formula (DDR2). Here’s a snip from the piece...
“Asus saw the need for an enthusiast-class motherboard based on the P35 chipset, but with a more flexible PCI Express configuration. And leveraging what they undoubtedly learned from designing the PW564-WS , engineered the Blitz Extreme and Blitz Formula motherboards, complete with a PCI Express switch that allowed them to connect the P35 Northbridge's PCI Express lanes to not one, but a pair of PEG slots. Asus didn't stop there, however, and also outfitted the Blitz boards with a hybrid air / liquid cooling apparatus and a number of other features that are sure to please.”

Hi, I am curious when you guys are going to start doing reviews on vista, its been out plenty long enough I think and its hard to find reviews for it. I have been using the 64bit version since feb personally and I think its supported well enough to switch over. Its just a request, That is all. Great Review, as usual Asus brings the goods.
Thanks for the feedback. We'd definitely like to move testing platforms to Vista sooner than later but there are many things that need to be portable and stable with a new OS, for extensive testings like we do. It's often hard to get a complete testing methodology and benchmark platform migrated over, with drivers across mutliple platforms, support for all benchmarks suites etc.
That said, we're definitely on it. It's just a matter of time before things are stable enough across a wide range of hardware and software so we can justify making the switch.
