Asus P5K Deluxe (Bearlake) Motherboard

24 May 2007
  • Summary: Right then, what can we say about the Asus P5K Deluxe motherboard? To be honest, I think it's ok. Using default auto settings of 1066FSB and DDR2-800, the results are about the same as a P965 based motherboard. It falls just under all the motherboards that uses the high-end Nvidia NForce 680i and Intel i975X chipsets. What is surprising is the fact that, if you bump up the FSB to 1333MHz and select DRAM frequency to DDR2-1066 ...

ASUS P5K Deluxe (WiFi-AP Edition)

Legion Hardware
13 May 2007
  • Summary: By far the best part about the ASUS P5K Deluxe was its overclocking abilities. Although we did not have a great deal of time to spend overclocking the P5K Deluxe, we could have easily wasted away hours messing with this board. For so long 3.66GHz stood as the best overclock we were able to achieve and now that record has been crushed, as the P5K Deluxe has now set a new benchmark for all motherboards.

ASUS P5K Deluxe/WiFi-AP (Intel P35)

Hardware Zone
26 August 2007
  • Conclusion: The Intel P35 chipset itself is actually a minor upgrade from the already excellent P965 in order to support upcoming processor and memory standards. However, there aren't many 'new' features to make it really stand out on its own. The ASUS P5K Deluxe is in the same situation as it is basically the natural progression of the venerable ASUS P5B Deluxe to the new chipset.

ASUS P5K Deluxe WiFi (Intel P35)

23 July 2007
  • Summary: ASUS P5K Deluxe WiFi is the most recent analog of ASUS P5B Deluxe WiFi but based on the Intel P35 chipset. In fact, the board is of overstated price because of the chipset's novelty. However, once the prices break even, the board P5K Deluxe WiFi will take the place of its predecessor.

  • Conclusion: Asus was one of the first manufacturers to shipped motherboards based on Intel's new P35 chipsets. We will not go in depth into the benefits of the new Intel chipset, there are already many articles on the web that cover this. We will rather focus on the test results for this motherboard and offer our opinion as to whether someone should take step and buy an Intel P35 based motherboard.

  • Conclusion: W Serious Samie 2 badamy wydajność złącza graficznego. I nie inaczej prezentuje się sytuacja – problemów z wydajnością PCI-Express nie mamy. W cachememie P5K wyraźnie i konsekwentnie przegrywał z – na szczęście w naszych testach nie odbiło się to na wydajności. Ale w czysto syntetycznych benchmarkach typu SuperPI może to już mieć lekkie znaczenie. Uznajemy zatem wydajność P5K Deluxe za DELIKATNIE niższą.

  • Excerpt: De las manos de ASUS nos llega esta placa base con el nuevo chipset Intel P35, perteneciente a la nueva familia de chipsets “Bearlake” cuyo proceso de fabricación es de 90nm. Llamado a sustituirlo, se trata de una evolución del archiconocido Intel P965 que tan buenas sensaciones ha ofrecido de forma mayoritaria en combinación con los C2D, y dispone de un nuevo southbridge y algunas novedades importantes en el northbrige, entre las cuáles destacamos el soporte oficial...
