When Intel launched the 32nm Clarkdale CPU
it also launched a trio of chipsets to support it. These three chipset have the same basic core with only additional features to separate them. This issue means that in terms of performance there is almost no difference between the H55, H57 and Q57. For the consumer then, the thing that will make the choice of which board to buy will be the features added in and the fine tuning of the available performance for both the CPU and the IGP. To this end Asus has developed the P7H57D-V EVO motherboard. We take a deep dive into its performance and features to see if this H57 board can stand out in the crowd.Packaging
The box the Asus P7H57D-V EVO comes in is very clean on the front. You get the typical large font displaying the model of the board and the usual listing of supported CPUs etc. But overall Asus has kept it clean and not too gaudy [I am not sure of the color though].
But fear not, Asus has put a large "Xtreme Design" logo on the front for those of you that need to see that on your products to know you are getting "quality".
The back of the box returns to the more typical layout. I guess the Asus Marketing people felt that if you picked up the box and turned it over you would be expecting the jumble of pictures and information lauding the features of the P7H57D-V EVO.
Inside the box you will find all the goodies you need to use the P7H57D-V EVO, including a crossfire adapter.
