Asus P8Z77-V Mainboard Review: Mainstream LGA 1155 Mainboard from Asus
17 June 2013
Summary: The functionality and features of this mainboard could have been fit for a flagship board of the past, but today it is just enough to place this product in the very mainstream segment, making it the junior model from Asus on Intel Z77 Express chipset. And it is probably the first time that we see wireless support implemented in a far not the top mainboard model like that.
Excerpt: The other day we got a chance to look at the ASUS P8Z77-V Pro/Thunderbolt and found ourselves extremely impressed with what ASUS was offering us. Not only did we have a board that performed extremely well out of the box, but we had something with a ton of features that managed to also hit at a really strong price point.
Excerpt: Sitting in a dark corner of my office for the last few months have been a couple of motherboards that all have one thing in common. One of the main features on the board is the inclusion of Thunderbolt. As time went on, though, it seemed that not a whole lot was happening with this technology.
ASUS P8Z77-V LX review: affordable ASUS Z77 motherboard
6 December 2012
Excerpt: ASUS usually only sends us their most high-end motherboards. The result is that, when we are trying to come up with buying advice for the entry-level segment, that we always end up recommending other brands. Still, we've always wondered about how ASUS compares to other manufacturers in the affordable segment. To help us in our endeavour, ASUS sent us the £88 P8Z77-V LX. This is the cheapest Z77 ATX motherboard in their line-up.
ASUS P8Z77-V Deluxe LGA 1155 ATX Motherboard Review
5 October 2012
Excerpt: It's been a couple months since we've had a chance to evaluate a Z77-based motherboard, so we are taking this opportunity to throw ASUS's P8Z77-V Deluxe on our test bench to put it through our comprehensive real-world and synthetic benchmarks. This $279 board has been available for several months and supports the LGA 1155 platform that includes Sandy Bridge and Ivy Bridge processors.
Summary: Like Gigabyte, Asus pushes the Ivy Bridge chip harder than MSI. On Turbo with single- and multi-threaded loads, the Asus hit 3.9GHz. The MSI board was more conservative at 3.7GHz on most workloads. Overall, we give the nod to the P8Z77-V in this roundup for its performance and useful features, but we can see why someone would go for the Gigabyte for sheer port madness and eSATA and FireWire needs.
Pros: Fan fans will love Fan Xpert 2; stellar performance.
