    This is the first high-end graphics card we've come across that's been designed from the ground up for the small form factor, mini-ITX crowd.

    Asus GTX 670 Direct CU II review

    7  

    Featuring an only slightly cut-down GK104 GPU compared to the top-end GTX 680, we were big fans of the GTX 670 when it first tipped up. It was only a little slower than the top GeForce card and was much cheaper.

    There's a tremendous sense of value when you get this Asus version of AMD's HD 7950 out of the box. It really is rather massive.

    AMD's new Piledriver processor uses the new FM2 socket. With their track record of maintaining compatibility across processors and sockets, how does this new mobo marry up?

    Asus P8Z77-V Premium review

    The battle between Asus and Gigabyte has traditionally been a heavyweight contest, though in recent years it's become more of a ritualised beating, as the Asus boards have consistently out-punched Gigabyte at every level.

    We've been waiting for the mainstream-oriented GTX 660 Ti since we first saw the Kepler architecture way back in March this year.

    Asus P8H77-I review

    8  

    The Intel H77 chipset is the little brother to the beefier Z77 Ivy Bridge chipset, and when we're talking about the P8H77-I we really do mean little.

    When a company like Asus slaps 'Deluxe' moniker on a motherboard you can be fairly confident in it being feature-heavy.

    The Republic of Gamers (RoG) has come out firing on the Intel Z77 chipset once again with the Asus RoG Maximus V Formula.

    The P8Z68-V Pro was one of our all-time favourites of the last gen, this P8Z77-V Pro update promises much in the same vein.

    The launch of yet another Z68 board is puzzling with Intel's new Z77 chipset imminent, but this is all about PCIe 3.0 now.

    Asus Rampage IV Formula review

    8  

    The Rampage IV Formula is the first of the Republic of Gamers boards we've seen tailored to Intel's X79 specs and we were hoping for something a little more impressive. Especially given that £300+ price tag.

    Asus P9X79 Pro review

    9  

    The P9X79 Pro is packed with up-to-the-minute features, such as PCIe 3.0 support, USB 3.0 boost technology, SSD caching, Asus's new USB BIOS Flashback, an updated UEFI BIOS and eSATA 6Gbps. So you're getting an awful lot of board for the price tag.

    Asus GTX 560 Ti 448 Core DirectCU II review

    6  

    The big issue though for this, effectively, slightly cut-down GeForce GTX 570 is that you can actually pick up a full GTX 570 for only a little more than the price of this hobbled version. The enhanced cooling gives it a bit of an edge, but the triple slot GTX 570 DirectCU II is available for only £259. And that's the card we'd recommend over this one.

    Asus Sabertooth X79 review

    9  

    Asus's RoG boards are all very well if money's no object. Back in the real world, the Sabertooth series offers a much more realistic compromise between performance, features and price. The chipset cooling and overclocking support look very solid. We certainly squeezed some great numbers out of the new Core i7-3960X.
