Because I don't think that someone would run an APU on that board....Quote

Its more common with AMD than intel.



When this 'board first came out I laughed at it. Alot.

However, it does make more sense to me now. Its still comparatively cheap for a full on ROG setup and the 860k is actually not that bad at all as a gaming pc. All they need to do is to release something ROG that is cheapish GPU wise (ROG 750Ti?) and you've got a solid, themed rig.Quote

Erhm yeah... Who is going to pay 60 quid for an 860k, only to pair it up with a £120 motherboard? Let alone run SLI/CrossfireX with a CPU like that :|

Or even when you get the most expensive APU that costs as much as this board? Use on-board graphics? Get a proper GPU, rendering the one on the APU useless anyway?

I mean, it's nice that proper boards for AMD exist, but it's a bit pointless when AMD doesn't have a CPU line-up to go with them Quote
