Intel i7 5960X Review with ASUS X99 Deluxe
Of course if we have a new CPU we're going to need a new motherboard to test it on. We'll have lots of X99 offerings in the coming weeks and months, but for now we're using the ASUS X99 Deluxe to test out Core i7-5960X on. The changes are highlighted in red and, as is often the case with a new ASUS motherboard, they are mostly a combination of the new hardware supported by the Chipset, and refinements of ASUS' own technologies. A lot of them will be a big change for owners of the X79 LGA2011 hardware, and fairly standard if you're currently running a Haswell Z97. It's nice to see the X99 getting the same high-end treatment it deserves to place it back at the top of the mountain.
