This board is built with the P67 chipset so that you can take the advantage of its overclocking capabilities using the unlock Sandy Bridge processor. It provides all great features with the latest state of the art technology that ASUS can offer.

Some of the best features of this motherboard are the EFI BIOS that replaces the traditional keyboard controlled to make it easier to navigate using a graphical user interface. It provides a 12+2 DIGI + VRM which is a precision digital voltage regulator that replaces the old analog version. This feature provides power efficiency to the CPU that maximized its usage with minimal power loss. The hyper Duo feature creates a hybrid storage drive by combining the HDD and SSD. The Al Suite II is a user friendly software for easy overclocking for DIGI+VRM, EPU, TurboV, BT Go, and fan speed. The ASUS DP2 is a dual intelligent processor which integrated on the motherboard that provides the EPU and TPU including the DIGI+VRM.

Testing The ASUS P8P67 EVO

The ASUS P8P67 EVO was tested using the 2600K Core i7 processor with 3.4GHz, 4GB Corsair memory, Seagate Baracuda 500 GB 7200 RPM and Nvidia GTX280. Using the TurboV, which is the overclocking features of this board instantly it can achieved the maximum clock speed of almost 4.5GHz. This means an increased of 1.1GHz or 25% on its performance with no effort.

But if you're a computer enthusiast I'm sure you won't be contented with these results. Setting the clock at 103MHz and multiply it by 46 attaining a very stable clock speed of 4.738MHz, an increase of 1.38GHz in speed is noticeable in its performance. That wouldn't be that case if you still want to pushed more speed with this board you can do manual overclocking just spend some time with it.

Compare with the Deluxe version, they only differ in the DIGI+VRM which is 16+2 while the EVO has only 12+2 but all other features are exactly the same. The good thing about this is that, this board is much cheaper than the Deluxe version. Performance and value wise this board will surely love by overclockers out there.
