Supporting Intel's Haswell-E and new DDR4 memory, buyers of Intel's X99 platform were probably prepared to pay a premium for mid-market boards. Are any of these $240 to $300 models worthy of Intel's latest CPUs? Let's say you read Intel Core i7-5960X,...

Our X99 sample set is still small, so it's always difficult to make an exact judgement about something when there is only a limited number of things to compare it to.However, it's clear from our initial testing that the two top-end ASUS motherboards, the...

Płyty główne stricte dla graczy w przypadku Socket LGA 2011-3 można traktować jako ciekawostkę, ale ostatecznie to przecież pełnoprawny kręgosłup komputera, posiadający kilka dodatkowych rozwiązań przydatnych nie tylko w trakcie wirtualnej zabawy....
