ASUS Crosshair IV Extreme: First look in picturesIt's arguably been a while since we've been able to refer to things as exciting on the AMD CPU and chipset side of the fence for enthusiasts, but recent weeks have seen that change. On the one hand, AMD are now the only CPU manufacturer to offer what can be considered affordable six-core CPUs thanks to their Phenom II X6 launch, while their chipset offerings have been bolstered by the release of 890GX and FX parts.
Along these lines, we've already seen ASUS launch one Republic of Gamers motherboard utilising this new 890FX chipset, the Crosshair IV Formula (which hopefully we'll be looking at shortly in review form), but it doesn't end there, as the company have just slipped us a fistful of tantalising images of their top-of-the-range Crosshair IV Extreme, which looks set to bring some big new features to the table, some of which are firsts for ASUS.
So, let's take a quick tour of the board to see what the Crosshair IV Extreme is all about.
