Motherboard Triple-Header
« on: March 24, 2013, 09:09:01 PM »
As we continue on through the news today, we've got a few motherboard reviews to share.  The first comes by way of eTeknix and is the MSI Z77 MPower.  This is a pretty loaded board that rivals some of the best in the business.  Serious enthusiasts only.  

As we continue on, we head on over to TweakTown where we find a couple of motherboard reviews.  They take a look at the Gigabyte Z77-HD4 for starters and then make their way on toward the ASUS P8Z77-V Pro/Thunderbolt board as well.  Either of these boards will get the job done, but only one of them has been blessed with a Thunderbolt.

   Nothing is happening, though, for Thunderbolt. We hear word that the approval process is a pain, Windows drivers that work are few and far between, devices generally speaking are pretty rare and the ones that do work don't offer any better support than USB 3.0 because of the fact they support just a single SSD. To really make use of Thunderbolt you want to have a device that has two or three SSD drives in RAID 0 - something that can take advantage of the bandwidth and really show how superior it is over USB 3.0.
