[tcMag] ASUS P45 P5Q Premium board has too much of everything

We don't know that's up with the P45 but it turned out to be quite a muse for at least two manufacturers, Gigabyte and Asus (although MSI isn't far off either). The latest crazy LGA775 contraption inspired and using the P45 chip comes from Asus and is named P45 P5Q Premium. On this upcoming board the Taiwanese manufacturer has put pretty much everything and after a short break, came back and doubled that. To detail, the P5Q Premium features support for Core 2 Duo/Quad/Extreme processors with FSBs of up to 1600 MHz, DDR2 memory, it has 16-phase power design and four PCI-Express x16 slots (it's likely that not all are x16 electrical).

Asus didn't stop too soon though so it also equipped the board with four Ethernet connectors, 10 USB 2.0 ports, no less than 10 (ten) SATA 3.0 Gbps ports and 7.1 channel audio. To wrap things up, the P5Q Premium features Power On and Reset buttons, a decent copper cooling system and a now ancient Ultra ATA connector. Expect the P45 P5Q Premium to hit the stores next month.

why would you possibly need 4 network ports?

holy *%$^!!!!! definitely my next board. sure ill never use 10 sata ports, or 4 network jacks, or 10 usb port (getting close actually) but who cares?! do those of us with quad cores ever really use all 4 cores at 100%?? hell no we dont. even my 2+ year old GTX is only fully utilized about a fifth of the time my computer is turned on... sorta got off track there but nice board anyway

Nice frigging board, now I'm just waiting for a Nehalem architechture with 8 cores and 2nd Generation integrated memory controller to be fitted into this type of board, even 12 sata connectors wouldn't hurt, the rest of the design is peachy!
