Product on Review Z97-A Motherboard
Manufacturer & Sponsor: ASUS
Street Price: £119 GBP / $149 USD

In the first of our ASUS Z97 motherboard reviews for the Intel 9 Series launch we focus our attention on the mainstream segment. For us, it’s essential to look at this category because computer hardware affordability is key for a huge number of interested parties and many system builders simply desire to step-up to this new line in a bid to gain compatibility for forthcoming Intel 5th Generation Processors.

The Z97-A may be an entry-level Z97 motherboard but it is by no means boring. Styled with ASUS’ new black/gold theme, this new motherboard has been furnished with a variety of high-end features including Crystal Audio 2, SATA Express and M.2 to name just a few. Additionally one of the major attractions with Z97-A is the price, but will a lower price-tag mean a sacrifice in performance?
