Yea, and not just ASUS, my DFI and even my MSI only have one PS/2 port but it is for kbd only, can't mix with mouse or kbd. So that is a nice touch them making it either or like that.

What's to be excited over is what the motherboard manufacturers are doing. When Intel releases a new chipset, especially lately, it doesn't seem that too much changes except for some numbers... numbers that aren't that much more impressive in the end. What is good is the increased power efficiency.
...The decrease in power draw that we saw on the previous page is a rather big deal. 33W is a big deal, especially when you use your computer often. That could very well mean a few bucks saved on your power bill each month. It all adds up.

ASUS made the P5Q interesting because of the added features, such as the Drive Xpert. Granted, it's a simple RAID feature, but it's made extremely easy to deal with, making it an attractive option for those who hate dealing RAID.

It's also great to see the Splashtop desktop updated, although again, it's usefulness will be limited. I firmly believe it has its use, but it's not something I'd personally use all that often... primarily because I never shut down my main PC. You might be in a different situation, however.
And another; from HotHardware
And an even better one (as always) from Bit-tech

Conclusions
One major thing to notice is that now mainstream CrossFire on an Intel platform has a new foothold in the P45 chipset, it's dual PCI-Express 2.0 x8 lanes (effectively equalling dual PCI-Express 1.1 x16 bandwidth) offers a much more balanced solution that's light years ahead in performance compared to the x16/x4 combinations we frequently saw from all but one (Asus Blitz) P35 board. The P35 boards were great for being inexpensive, yet fantastic performers, and the P45 chipset should just sweeten the deal at this price point...
...We still want far more out of the ExpressGate feature and we'd prefer to have WiFi over a second Gigabit Ethernet – that's a worthwhile pairing because it adds diversity rather than mirroring the plenty of boards that already feature two GigE sockets...
...The EPU is an evolution for the better –(PowerSaving) despite the odd bug, the software side is excellent; it’s well laid out and easy to use. However you can't use it if you're overclocking or even just tweaking the BIOS because it overclocks and underclocks the system so needs complete control, and yet, it's not diverse enough to allow detailed custom user settings for all four performance states....
Quote:
One thing that Asus has going for it here is its core performance and BIOS – while we've been waiting weeks for solid BIOS revisions from the competition (we're currently testing Asus, Gigabyte and MSI in house), Asus has provided a BIOS that mirrors its Republic of Gamer boards in tweaking options. If you learn how to use them, you can really set it off to do some great things and while each performance gain is a small percentage, coupled together they nudge it ahead of the competition on many accounts like we've seen in our performance numbers.

We can't yet draw value conclusions because we've yet to see the final prices of other P45 boards...
... but this Asus P5Q Deluxe is generally more fully featured than any of them, we'd certainly equate this to a high value indeed. However, whether you'd be tempted for the P5Q Deluxe over the P5Q-E or P5Q-Pro which feature a still very capable eight phase EPU and virtually everything else the Deluxe does – certainly everything a mainstream user would really need...
Quote:
In the tit-for-tat battle between A and G part of us questions that all we're heading into is a lot of "16 is better than 12", "our Fujitsu capacitors are better than your Fujitsu capacitors" and "our P5Q Premium can also have four Gigabit Ethernet connections like your P45-DQ6". Why not build boards with features and (low) prices that customers want, not just to have engineering e-peen swinging contests across Taipei?

Final Thoughts
Asus has appealed to the budget conscious, feature loving, overclocking enthusiast very well indeed even though some of these features are mutually exclusive in use. It's not perfect but it's evidently a clear that this is a thorough evolution over previous Asus products, even previous P35 boards as a whole. It's raised the bar massively for what mainstream should be compared to the previous generation, yet in almost every area it's still left us wanting more. Its hardware features are innovative and daring, but we find ourselves rhetorically questioning "would I actually use it though?" If yes, then jump on it like it was made of gold. Asus has proved that its P45 P5Q Deluxe is a step up from P35, and almost emulates X48 but for far less money: it has our vote for this reason alone.
And let's not forget
techreport who seem, at times, to be reviewing an entirely different board. !
Quote:
The star of the P5Q line is Intel's new P45 Express chipset, which in a bit of a surprise, only offers official support for front-side bus speeds up to 1333MHz. We'd expected the P45 to natively support 1600MHz front-side bus speeds like Intel's high-end X48 chipset, but that doesn't appear to be the case.
Quote:
...Like the P35 Express that preceded it, the P45's memory controller supports either DDR2 or DDR3 memory. Asus' P5Q Deluxe is built for the former with the P5Q3 Deluxe equipped for the latter. Apart from their memory slots, the boards are identical.
Quote:
...Dual Gigabit Ethernet options are common these days, and you'd think they'd be an easy feature to implement properly. Asus gets halfway there, too, tying one of the GigE ports to a PCI Express-based networking chip from Marvell. But the second GigE port is connected to a different Marvell chip that rides the slower (and shared) PCI bus, continuing an Asus tradition of fouling its high-end motherboards with at least one Gigabit chip that will be bottlenecked by the PCI bus.I suppose we can forgive Asus this time around because the P5Qs also come with integrated 802.11 Wi-Fi—a feature that will probably be more useful to most folks than a second GigE jack.
Integrated Wi-Fi ???
It's even in the pictures, and shots of the accesories include the antennas; but it's not seen in the NewEgg Pictures; or any of the other reviews!
Now if it did have integrated Wi-Fi/AP for $209....
(And let's just see how long that $209 price lasts at t'Egg)

I actually tried to post a similar topic a few days ago but slow comp and bad hub screwed it up.
