ASUS P8P67 (Sandy Bridge) Deluxe Motherboard Review
27 June 2011
Excerpt: The launch of the Intel Sandy Bridge platform and the 6 series of chipsets bring a new paradigm shift into the world of CPUs and chipsets. The launch of the new platform offers high performance computing to the masses with integrated graphics much improved over the last series. Further, Sandy Bridge brings integrated graphics to the same package as the CPU rather than on the same die as the Clarkdale and Arrandale CPUs had.
Summary: I have to say that my experiences with the P8P67 Deluxe were outstanding. My experiences with the board were flawless from start to finish with no problems or issues of note, or otherwise. At the time of this writing supplies of LGA1155 motherboards are still scarce thanks to the Intel P67 Express chipset recall,so it’s hard to say exactly when you’ll be able to lay your hands on one of these. However stock should be available soon.
Summary: ASUS has a ton of P8P67 variants. Some are light on features, some aren’t. The P8P67 Deluxe is certainly anything but light on features but how does it perform? How does it stack up in the sea of recent P67 Express based boards?
Excerpt: One thing about the Sandy Bridge launch that has been different about any other CPU launch that I have covered has been how many motherboards were launched at the same time. I was shocked at the number that came in even before the CPUs arrived. Still, it is a good thing in most respects as it gives you plenty of choices unlike a few other CPU launches that I can think of.
[Review] ASUS P8P67 Deluxe – Fully Loaded Mid-Range
3 February 2011
Conclusion: The P8P67 Deluxe has an amazing array of features and great components integrated. The software ASUS has added makes overclocking simpler than ever with virtually no input from the user required. They have opted to use dedicated ICs across the board, from TPU and EPU, to Intel Ethernet to boost performance of the CPU and memory.
Conclusion: ASUS's P8P67 Deluxe is a feature-packed Sandy Bridge motherboard that's well-styled, well laid out and generally a joy to use. The UEFI BIOS is a noteworthy upgrade and the board offers impressive overclocking performance with standard air cooling. Fetching £170 at retail, the board's abundance of features will appeal to those who want to cover all bases.
Excerpt: We’ll be honest: We’ve had the most hands-on time with Asus’s new P8P67 Deluxe board of any P67-based board this cycle. That’s because Asus sent a functioning board to us far before its competitors (including Intel) did, and as such, we conducted the bulk of our Sandy Bridge chip testing with the P8P67 Deluxe board. Usually, early boards mean soldered-on wires, unpredictable performance, and hiccups that are often a consequence of very early hardware.
Pros: UEFI! Native SATA 6Gb/s
Cons: Confusing SATA ports; pre-release drivers are a little wonky.
