ASUS P8P67 WS Revolution vs Maximus iv extreme - Page 2

post #11 of 27
If you need the extra stuff like bluetooth, iROG and stuff go with the Maximus. If not then go WS. The WS is basically a stripped down in features, multi GPU board while the Maximus is a fully loaded, multi GPU board. Overclocking potential, such as the amount of VRMs they have are about the same although the Maximus has a couple more VRMs.

I have both boards. The ws revo doesn't lose anything to the m4e overclocking wise. However the ws revo has 4 real slots enabling 4 way crossfire and the m4e doesn't.

Thanks, I will only be going as far as 2 crossfire (and thats only if I need the extra performance. Will only be starting with 1 6950)
I'm thinking the p8p67 deluxe board is a good option, and I see many people with this in signatures ect. Is there anything major that either of the others can do (other than 3-4way crossfire) that the deluxe can't (or any known issues ect?)

Cheers
Anthony

It can't run x16/x16 and all the other variations of lane configs?

Thanks, but in the reviews I saw, 8x/8x vs 16x/16x is very small difference. Is this right?

That's not the issue, it's that it limits you to single gpu cards. In other words it's not flexible, that's all the lanes you'll ever have. If you're ok with that then it's much ado about nothing.

Are you sure? My understanding was that you could run two cards and they would get 8 lanes each and run almost as well as two cards using 16 lanes each.

Is this correct?

I just got my second 6950, and it crossfire's just fine.

And yes, the difference between 16x/16x and 8x/8x is minimal, and won't really matter for a long time.

so what if you could get a maximus IV for just a little bit more than the price of a WS Revo?

WS Revo and use the saved money for trifire
