Intel’s X58 chipset made for great platform performance, and even though the chip maker has unleashed many more chipsets since the X58 came out, there hasn’t been a true successor in the high-end of their product line-up (not even the Z68 chipset) until now.

The X79 chipset looks to pick up the X58’s poll position, so we decided to bench test a few motherboards from ASRock, ASUS, and Gigabyte to see how Intel's new flagship performs.

Oh Yeah! The ASRock has everything I need, including the lowest price. Quick, somebody buy me one of them! [:)]

I have 2 Asus sabertooth boards, one AMD and one Intel and I would definitely choose the sabertooth x79 if I was made of money ;o)
