Tue, September 01 2009 | 8:28AM | PermaLink Feedback?
It is a common practice among many motherboard manufacturers to have a line of motherboards with different part numbers to indicate different features, performance and price point. Motherboard manufacturers often start with a top of the line board design and stripe or tweak a few components here and there to produce a cheaper derivative. It is a way to save some bucks when it comes to product design. Core i7 is currently the most expensive platform one can purchase and along it is expensive motherboard that ranges from $150 to insanely $570. It raises some interesting question's that just how much more 'performance' would these more expensive boards offer. Does it makes sense to buy the more expensive board while the more budget or mainstream board that can offer similar performance. This is what we set to investigate today as we compare the top of the line Gigabyte EX58-Extreme to their mainstream board, the EX58-UD4P.
