CES 2012 Asus X79 Boards, Transformer TF700T ActionIn a lavish suite at the Trump Hotel in Las Vegas, Asus set up a number of existing and upcoming products for eager members of the technology press to ogle and get some hands-on time. In the suite, we had a chance to checkout a handful of upcoming X79 motherboards, nettops, netbooks, notebooks, and even a few tablets and a smartphone.

One of the standout products had to be the new Transformer Prime TF700T, which builds upon the original design we showed you here, but adds an absolutely awesome WUXGA 1920x1200 resolution screen, a higher-resolution front facing camera, and reportedly more reliable Wi-Fi performance...

That tablet performance and fluidity is very good considering the resolution it's boasting.

I was hopping to see some Z77 boards, so far the X79 is not worth the money or the performance it offers.

PadPhone sounds really, really interesting and useful; the best of a tablet and a phone, count me in! After I use the hell out of my HH-won tablet.

Glad to see more manufacturers jumping on the bandwagon of implementing their own sound hardware/Creative sound chips on the motherboards. Realtek and VIA audio is good but I've always wanted to see those audio chips on motherboard for years; now, that wish has been granted. Hope their solution sounds good...

This Asus motherboard would definetly improve my life. Not olny does it have plenty of RAM space for me, but if my pc had the sound capabilities on this motherboard, i would be able to hook up my woofer and sorround sound system in my house.
