ASUS Sabertooth X79 LGA 2011 Motherboard Review
     Mon, Jun 11 2012 | 11:06A | Motherboards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The X79 Sabertooth lives up to its TUF name in both looks and performance. The integrated UEFI BIOS gave us plenty of options for configuring everything on our system and did it with a user friendly interface. The board`s support for quad GPU graphics configurations from both NVIDIA SLI and AMD CrossfireX is a huge plus and expected for high-end motherboards in this class. The X79 Sabertooth`s bundled software was very stable and useful during testing and increased the overall value that consumers look for in all their PC hardware upgrades."

Virtu Universal MVP Review @ Hardware Secrets
     Thu, Jun 07 2012 | 9:11A | Motherboards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Updated 06/01/2012: We had originally published this review one month ago, and our results showed no performance improvement by using the Virtu MVP technology with video cards using graphics processors from AMD. Lucid, the developer of the Virtu technology, contacted us saying that the 2.1.110 driver we used (which came on the motherboard`s CD) had a bug and didn`t work correctly with AMD`s Catalyst 12.4 driver. They provided us with a new driver, 2.1.113, which presumably corrects the bug. Therefore, we redid all our tests with this new driver version. Let`s see if it really corrected the problem."
