Arrow Tech Support Evaluations / ASUSTeK Computer Inc Evaluation

Very interesting article written up here that some folks here might want to read http://www.benchzone.com/page.php?al=asustek_evaluation

Since the introduction of this section we've been working on our very first company's evaluation. ASUSTeK Computer Inc a.k.a. Asus was our first target, as their current products seem to attract most of the people nowadays ( it's a fact that Asus has the widest motherboard products range for Intel's Core 2 Duo/Quad series CPUs, and an offensive marketing campaign ). Unfortunately their current products have a lot issues, major and minor, which need to be resolved anytime soon. We also had some questions on two Asus's products by that time, so we said "lets evaluate Asus first".

So here we are today, presenting you the results of ASUSTeK Computer Inc evaluation. But before going into the fixtures, and the plus 'n' cons, we should get into the details of this...amazing journey

Let's start with some motherboards & their issues...
Personally, I think while Asus do have alot of issues mentioned in that article to address, Asus is still overall the best brand when it comes to core2 motherboards ATM. I don't think any other brand has taken core2 cpus consistently higher for max oc's than Asus right now ?

Hi eva2000

Glad you liked the article.

I have to agree with you, with the current motherboard availability for the Intel Core 2 Series CPUs, Asus has the best boards ( in the land of the blinds, the one-eyed man rules them all - they say )

DFI is currently...sleeping, Gigabyte...mmm
Will be testing the new 680i motherboard from Abit soon, hopefully we'll have a good rival for Striker Extreme.

If any1 got any questions regarding the article, and our evaluation process, feel free to ask me here

P.S. I really liked your CPU + Asus Striker threads Eva

Hello eva2000

Glad you liked our article!

Yes, I have to agree with you, with the current Core 2 Ready motherboard availability, the "best" boards are the Asus ones.

Re: Tech Support Evaluations / ASUSTeK Computer Inc Evaluation

If ASUS didn't have the best C2D motherboards they would be doing something very wrong. For instance just a quick list off the top of my head for P965 boards.

P5B
P5B-E
P5B-E Plus
P5B-Deluxe
P5B-Deluxe Wifi
Commando

6 boards based on the one chipset. I'm sure there are more which I haven't mentioned

Currently leaving them un-informed.
Hope they'll find the article on their own.

Otherwise I'll find a contact at Asus from my contacts @ memory industry and ring their belly.
