Summary: The A8V Deluxe's street price hovers around $140, which is a pretty incredible deal, all things considered. With 8-channel audio, Gigabit Ethernet, 802.11g Wi-Fi, Firewire, support for four Serial ATA and six ATA devices, and plenty of RAID options, the A8V Deluxe is a steal. The board's fast, too, and it's built around the 939-pin socket that AMD says is the future of the Athlon 64.
What's not to like, or even love, about that? A couple of things, unfortunately.
Summary: The ASUS A8V Deluxe is the first AMD Socket 939 board we review here at OCW.
The package comes with goodies and that includes a software access point and the
LAN comes with built in cable tester. This is something that is missing from
other manufactures. From the gallery, we have already seen the board layout. I
find that the board could be better laid with power connectors put together than
to have it separated.
