Another feature is the UASP feature that utilises the maximum bandwidth via the USB 3.0 mode. This is possible using the UASP USB 3 controller and the UASP driver. Do note, however, the drive will also require UASP controller as well to take advantage of this feature on the board.

To wrap things up, I am looking forward to see X79 Sabertooth and to know about the Battlefield 3 Edition ROG board. Thanks to Asus India for taking the time and effort to sponsor the trip and letting me to check out the features.

  1. Great coverage Sorcerer nice to see things from a enthusiast's perspective rather than regurgitated press releases that some other sites put up as articles Asus have always appealed to the enthusiast in our hearts with there products especially more so with ROG lineup but in the Indian context we have consider their less than great service although i am hearing things are starting to become better
