The introduction of the Core i7 processors into the market marked the beginning of one of the largest redesign feats for motherboard manufacturers. Because of the new Core i7 architecture, many of the motherboard’s functions had been redefined. The Core i7 processor, in essence, took up almost all major functions of the north bridge. Communication between the RAM and the processor was a major one. The Core i7 set up also introduced the idea of tri-channel RAM in order to increase bandwidth. ASUS was one of these motherboard manufacturers that attempted to redefine the expectations of performance. Today TechwareLabs will take a look at their budget model – P6T. Will it stack up to the expectations or will it be a miss for ASUS?
