[NordicHardware] ASUS P5Q3 Deluxe - Intel P45 chipset review

There is an expression that reads “the bigger, the better†and ASUS is without question the biggest when it comes to motherboards, but is it the first to present a motherboard based on the P45 circuit? P45 is the successor to P35, and, according to Asus, the motherboard we've been handed is one of the first in the world that actually works. P45 and its precursors land in a market segment somewhere between the high performance circuits and the slower models for built-in systems. To call this circuit mid-range is actually an understatement, from a performance and equipment perspective. When the big motherboard manufacturers get to do what they want, the performance is identical to its bigger brothers and the equipment at least as equally exclusive.

In this review, we will take a closer look at ASUS P5Q3 Deluxe, which is based on Intel's P45 chipset. The difference in performance between the P35 and its precursor P965 was minimal; the question is whether the P45 has any additional performance advantages. An important difference between P35 and P45 is that the latter is made using the 65nm manufacturing process, while the former was made with the 90nm process. This, if anything, should give the possibility of higher system bus speeds. Can the P5Q3 with its Deluxe version also give the consumer some added value in the form of additional features?

Let's present Asus P5Q3 Deluxe.

3x PCI-Express x16 (1x16 or 2x8)
Why not 2x16 PCI-e 2.0 lanes? I know some boards have 3 pci-e but why are two @ 8?
