Like clockwork, JJ from ASUS showed up at the studio last month with a ton of 8-series Haswell motherboards in tow. JJ gave us a tour of what's new with the new platform as well as provided some color on how some of the changes to Haswell (e.g. Fully Integrated Voltage Regulator - FIVR) impacted ASUS' motherboard design. You can also see me get super excited about one of ASUS' new ROG features in the video.

JJ stuck around for a while and we've got 3 more videos coming including a tour of their new UEFI setup and a guide to Haswell overclocking.

    Is the video out of sync for anyone else? Reply

    It gets out of sync past halfway through the video. Reply

    Yes, it is. Let me see if I can get that fixed. Reply

    Could we get a break from the barrage of Haswell related reviews for some Richland benchmarks? Reply

    Meekers IS RIGHT!!!!! Reply

    Richland is just a Trinity refresh with a Gesture software package. CPU and GPU are both the same, just run a little faster in frequency. This is why it's not really news. Reply

    Supposed to be much lower power and much better use of boost states to stay at higher frequencies longer. Would love to see benchmarks against a i3-3225 in a few games and general use applications. Do not need a whole review, just enough to see if Richland accomplished what AMD claimed and is worth the price premium they are looking for. Reply

    BS Space69Monkey!!! This is a news worthy item since it is a whole new batch of CPU'S from AMD. Release the benchmarks since the chips are already for sale at Newegg.com.

    Even Haswell was a refresh of Intel's last offering.

    Haswell is not a refresh, it's an updated architecture. The GPU is very different and the CPU is also improved. Reply
