The P6T is the first of it’s kind reviewed by us till now. It’s meant for the
new Core i7 family of desktop processors and sports the Intel X58 chip set. To
support the fastest processor on the planet, the board has the new LGA 1366
socket. It features triple channel DDR3 up to 1600 MHz (6 x DIMM), Intel
QuickPath interconnection, a 16+2 phase power design and the Asus energy
processing unit(EPU) for better power efficiency. Standard features include 8
USB ports, 8 channel Audio I/O and an E- SATA port on the back panel. Other
connectivity ports on the board include 6 SATA connectors, 2 SAS connectors,
IEEE1394a connector and a few others. The motherboard is designed in an ATX form
factor and comes with a number of accessories like the Asus OC Palm and cables
for connectivity. We tested the motherboard with an Intel Core i7 extreme
processor with 4GBs of DDR3 RAM and a 400 GB HDD running Windows Vista Ultimate
32 bit edition. Scores by this motherboard were compared with those achieved by
the Intel DX58SO while running on the same setup. In PC Mark 05, the motherboard
gave a CPU score of 10900 which, thanks to the insanely powerful processor, is
excellent. Same was for Cinebench R10, as the single core score was 3828 and
15746 when using all four. In POV-Ray, it achieved a slightly lesser score of
88753 PPS as compared to the 95325 achieved by the Intel motherboard.

Bottomline: Overall, a good buy as th e motherboard performed well and
it comes with a number of features.

Price: Rs 20,500 (excluding taxes) (3
years warranty)
Key Specs: Meant for Core i7, LGA 1366 socket, X58 chipset, DDR3 RAM
