ASUS Sabertooth P67 Motherboard Review

👤by David Mitchelson Comments 📅12-01-11

The Sabertooth P67 is definitely a motherboard with lots of ambition. It sets itself apart from anything currently on the market with its unique looks and features. The Tactical Vest is and has already attracted a lot of attention, so even if it wasn't to be a successful implementation it has still achieved the "look at me" award.

With looks unlike anything else currently at consumers finger tips the Sabertooth P67 has some fantastic features. We could talk for hours about the abundance of features on this board but some of those that clearly stand out are the Thermal Radar which allows you to get real-time updates on temperatures, voltages and fan speeds across the board. The TUF components - alloy chokes, robust - solid capacitors and MOSFETs which all come 'military' tested to ensure maximum endurance. Standard boards will come with iron based capacitors but these are alloy and allow for up to massive 40A. Durable under the most extreme of conditions. And then there's the EFI BIOS which is revolutionary. Point and click, drag 'n drop. Get to where you need to in a flash (pardon the pun).

The Sabertooth P67 really has a lot going for it. It does however match similar performance to that of the mainstream boards currently available for around the 100 mark. However the extra features and presentation really set it apart, if you need something that is going to need to sustain brute force then this is probably a better choice for you.

Priced at around 170 Inc. VAT the Sabertooth P67 is a feature-rich board, even if it does have some of the typical RoG features absent, such as onboard power/reset and Bluetooth. To some it will look rather ugly but to others it will look great. Personally I think the colour-scheme could be much better, but I guess ASUS are carrying across this rugged, military style with the TUF series.

+ Great performer
+ Lots of new features
+ Innovative
+ Very robust

- Similar performance to mainstream P67
- Colour scheme won't suite all
