With a price tag of nearly 30k one would wonder what is so
special about this mother board. The features that stand out in this P55 express
chipset based motherboard include its Multi-GPU Technology and ROG (Republic Of
Gaming) features. The multi-GPU technology enables users to choose either ATI’s
CrossFireX or NVIDIA’s SLI, both of which enable two graphics adapters on a
single board for enhanced experience. This feature is also important due to buzz
around usage of GPUs to increase overall processing power of desktops. Other
important feature of Maximus III Extreme motherboard is the facility to
wirelessly overclock it. This motherboard comes with an RC Bluetooth card  that
can be configured with a Bluetooth cell phone, thus giving a user capability to
tweak system parameters like voltage and frequency besides wire free monitoring.

To check performance we carried out a number of benchmarks
on this motherboard. The graphical performance was checked using 3D Mark and POV-Ray
where this board scored 13974 and 97697 PPS. Overall performance was checked
using PC Mark and CineBench, where Maximus III Extreme  gave scores of  9472
and  10824. All these results are at par with Asus Maximus III Gene motherboard
we reviewed in Feb 2010. We also checked performance of  SATA 6 Gbps ,USB 3.0
and power consumed by the board, details of which are mentioned in the table.

Price: Rs 29,000 (3-year warranty)
Meant for: Gamers who want to overclock
