After X79 proving to be a pricey upgrade this Christmas, a lot of users are still looking at what the famous Z68 platform has to offer, and with prices falling as we get closer to that special day of the holiday season, it's the perfect time to upgrade it seems. Couple this fantastic value with a range of components that can really be pushed to their limits including the 2500k, 2600k and the newest 2700k processors and you have a system that will last the test of time, or at least until Intel bring out Ivy Bridge.
We recently took a look at the budget-friendly Z68AP-D3 from Gigabyte recently which offered the performance needed but for an extremely low price point. Today we see Asus doing something very similar with the new P8Z68-V LX budget board.
Though from a first glance we see a budget board, Asus have also tried to give all of the features you want and need including some that you would only assume to see on top high-end boards such as a UEFI BIOS, EPU/TPU features and multi-GPU support.
Priced at £78.82, this is one of the best priced Z68 boards on the market, and being released just before Christmas seems to be a great tactic by Asus, but has the performance been affected or can it keep up with its bigger brothers that are double the price? Let's find out shall we!
