I think the Gigabyte GA-F2A88X-UP4 has the most solid VRM: 60A IR3550 PowIRstage like on their flagship Gigabyte Z87X OC force or Z77X Up5 TH / Z77X Up7

Also it has 6+2 phase without phase doublers (i.e. each phase is driven by the IR PWM controller) , driven by IR3567A , datasheet here: http://www.irf.com/product-info/datasheets/data/pb-ir3567a.pdf‎

In contrast the Extreme 6+ uses the IR3565A PWM controller likely with IR3598 phase doublers for their Low RDs(on) mosfets since the IR3565A is only capable of 4+2

Quote:
The IR3598 can be configured as two independent drivers in DUAL
mode with individual PWM signals, or as an interleaved DOUBLER
- IR3598 specsheet ( http://www.irf.com/product-info/datasheets/data/pb-ir3598.pdf‎ )
Report of IR3598 usage from
http://ocstation.com/motherboard/951-asrock-fm2a88x-extreme-6-motherboard-review/

It's basically a rehash of the A85X situation (see http://pctreiber.net/2013/asrock-fm2a85x-extreme6-test.html/2) except with a different mosfet supplier for AsRock:
NXP 4530CL and 9230CL were used in A85X , Infineon BSC0909NS and BSC0906NS are used instead on A88X

ASUS's A88X Pro is pricier than both and packs 6+2 with Low RDs(on) mosfets as well:
