I am getting ready to upgrade my current ASUS board to a newer board. What is the difference or advantage of these two boards one vs other.
They both support Intel Duo 2 cpus. They both have dual gigabit ethernet. They both have only the keyboard interface. Must use usb for mouse. They both have e-sata and sata interfaces. 8 channel audio;they both can use the same memorly. They're five dollars apart in price on newegg. So why would one purchase the Premium over the Deluxe?
To celebrate its 18th Anniversary, ASUS has released the 3rd Generation Black Pearl Special Edition P5K Premium motherboard. This new motherboard utilizes specially-designed technologies that provides overclocking up to 100% faster speeds in water-cooled systems; and stays 40ºC (72ºF) lower than other thermal solutions. The P5K Premium also comes equipped with built-in native DDR2 1066 memory support that can be overclocked to DDR2 1400. Additionally, it is able to provide users with stable CPU power and 30% reduced power ripples during heavy loading; while signal delivery is enhanced with low cross-talk for even faster speeds. Furthermore, it provides cooler operations, enhanced 8-channel HD Audio with built-in AI Audio 2 and a host of innovative tools and features.
