Kitguru has been busy for the last week preparing multiple reviews for the latest Intel launch today. In this particular review we will look at the Asus Maximus V Gene when paired up with the Intel i7 3770k processor. In this review we will focus on this system as a performance oriented media center, with testing via the latest Intel Graphics ‘HD4000′.

The Asus ROG Maximus V Gene is a Micro ATX motherboard which doesn’t compromise on features. It has full support for the latest Intel processors and both AMD Crossfire and Nvidia SLI configurations. It features onboard SupremeFX III audio and GameFirst/Intel Gb Lan to help deal with lag issues when gaming.

This board retails at under £160 inc vat, which is a lower price than both Asus Sabertooth and P8Z77-V Deluxe products. If you are in the market for a new Z77 media center, is this the only solution you need?

Asus Exclusive Innovations:

  • 100% Japan-made Solid Capacitors.
  • ASUS Anti-Surge Protection.
  • DIGI+ Power Control.
  • AI Suite II.
  • UEFI BIOS.

Innovations:

  • Dual Intelligent Processors 3 – with New DIGI+ Power Control include three digital voltage controllers, allowing ultra-precise DRAM tuning in addition to ultra-precise CPU voltage control.
  • Quad GPU AMD CrossfireX – a flawless architecture accommodating the power of up to four graphics cards.
  • LudicLogix Virtu MVP – boots responsiveness, improves gaming frame rates by 30-70% and sharpens visual quality.

While this review is focusing on the Intel Core i7 3770k processor, Intel have a wide range of processors being launched – The Core i7 3920XM Extreme Edition, i7 3770k and i7 3770 target the mainstream enthusiast desktop audience.

Intel supplement these with the i7-3770T and i7 3770S in the desktop ‘low power’ sector. Mobile i7 3870QM, i7-3720QM, i7-3612QM and 3610QM processors have also been released. Finally Intel also launch five new Core i5 processors today – the i5-3570K, i5-3550 and i5-3450 and the low power i5-3550s and i5-3450s.
