Asus P8P67 WS Revolution hits our labs

P8P67 WS RevolutionFor our second review of 2011 we thought we would take a look at a P67 board (despite all the drama).  We chose the Asus P8P67 WS Revolution. This board (like you did not know) is part of Asus’ workstation line up, but that does not mean that it is boring. In fact the WS Revolution is anything but boring. It has been built with the professional enthusiast in mind. You get items like an NF200 chip to help support three way SLI and Crossfire, a 92% power efficiency rating,  multiple SATA 3.0 ports (supported by Intel and Marvell), and dual Intel GBe LAN ports.  But there is more to it than just the sum of its features. You also get an improved VRM (voltage regulation module), thicker traces for better signal transfer and quite a bit more. With all of this waiting to be tried out, let’s quit the intro chatter and dive into the P8P67 WS Revolution.
