Asustek announces new motherboard for Intel quad-core

Asustek has announced its latest motherboard for gamers, the P5WDH Deluxe Board, which is made to use Intel quad-core processors.

The world's largest motherboard maker, Asustek Computer, has announced its latest motherboard designed around quad-core microprocessors from Intel.

The company said its P5WDH Deluxe board, aimed at computer gamers, was made for Intel Core 2 Extreme quad-core processors, and internal testing showed the system increases speeds considerably over dual-core microprocessors.

The new Intel chips are dubbed 'quad-core' because each chip contains four central processing unit cores, allowing PCs with the chips to perform several tasks at once. The chips make a big difference in servers and workstations, but desktop and laptop users only see a major impact in performance when running high-end games or editing photos or video.

The new Asustek motherboard joins a list of products it has already announced that support Intel quad-core processors. The P5WDH Deluxe would be available soon, the company said, but it did not provide cost details.

Asustek has already released another gaming board based on the Core 2 Extreme, Striker Extreme, as well as a list of quad-core ready motherboards.

I’d recommend a Dell XPS 15 2-in-1 and the new Windows 10 to anyone who needs to get serious work done (before you kick back on your couch with your favourite Netflix show.)

It’s useful for office tasks as well as pragmatic labelling of equipment and storage – just don’t get too excited and label everything in sight!

I need power and lots of it. As a Front End Web developer anything less just won’t cut it which is why the MSI GT75 is an outstanding laptop for me. It’s a sleek and futuristic looking, high quality, beast that has a touch of sci-fi flare about it.
