For that reason, we did not believe it was fair to AnandTech readers to review an excellent design that they might never see in production.

Noteworthy are the ratios in fine 0. Otherwise the variety and range of BIOS adjustments is excellent. We were particularly pleased to see easily accessible optical and coax SPDIF ports and wish other manufacturers paid as much attention to this feature as Asus has in their recent board designs.

Asus A8V deluxe and win The sata ports use separate promise sata controller that most likely will require drivers. We had been very pleased with the revisions of the A8V we had evaluated, so we had great expectations of Revision 2.
