[section_title title=P8 : The Verdict]
Finally an ROG maximus board that gamers can really afford. I really appreciate asus trying to cater to this market with their premium line of boards. The board has a lot going for it even though asus had to cut down on a few features. I think they made the right trade-offs to bring the board to its current price point. The black mat finish looks awesome and the back red theme just never gets old. For a price of around $150 or ~Rs14,000 (could not source it in india though, taking a guess) its a decent buy. If it is available for a tab bit cheaper (~Rs12k ish) it would be just amazing. I’ll give it an 8.5/10, its a great board for gamers, its got the right balance between performance, looks and expandability.
- Good performance and overclocking
- Great looks
- M.2 port
- Lots of features for gamers
- Not pure 8ph power delivery (not a real biggie)
- No Sata Express
