Intel’s X58 chipset made for great platform performance, and even though the chip maker has unleashed many more chipsets since the X58 came out, there hasn’t been a true successor in the high-end of their product line-up (not even the Z68 chipset) until now.

The X79 chipset looks to pick up the X58’s poll position, so we decided to bench test a few motherboards from ASRock, ASUS, and Gigabyte to see how Intel's new flagship performs.

Oh Yeah! The ASRock has everything I need, including the lowest price. Quick, somebody buy me one of them! Smile

Dogs are great judges of character, and if your dog doesn't like somebody being around, you shouldn't trust them.

I have 2 Asus sabertooth boards, one AMD and one Intel and I would definitely choose the sabertooth x79 if I was made of money ;o)
