ASUS is already known as having a motherboard for pretty much every potential market segment out there. Now they’re loading another model to the hilt and adding one more – the P8Z77-V Premium. This will be ASUS’ flagship non-Republic of Gamers SKU, fitting right between the high-end Deluxe model and their ROG Flagship, the Maximus V Formula, when it comes out later this quarter (rumors I’ve seen put its release sometime in June).

The add-ons of this board have some nice ROG-like features including power section similarities, dual LAN, a boatload of SATA ports and USB BIOS flashback.

One very interesting add-on is that one of the nine referenced SATA ports is an mSATA port, complete with a 32GB SSD plugged in. Setting up SSD caching has never been easier because the drive comes built-in to the board!

Highlighted features include:

  • USB3 Boost support
  • USB Bios Flashback
  • Dual Intel Gigabit Nics featuring iNetwork Control Packet Priority
  • 4 way SLI and 4 way Crossfire support via a new PLX Gen 3 switch
  • Dual Band Wifi with BT 4.0 featuring WiFi Go! Software Suite ( for DLNA Streaming/Serving, Easy file transfer to android/iOS devices and remote desktop functionality )
  • Onboard MSATA support with 32GB MSATA SSD
  • Digi+ VRM with 3 way Digital power design ( CPU/VRM – DRAM – iGPU )
  • 9 SATA Ports
  • 6 4 Pin PWM Fan Headers featuring Fan Xpert 2 Fan Technology ( for advanced control in UEFI and OS as well as automatic fan calibration )

Supports 4-way SLI / CrossfireX

We’re not sure when these will be released (and ASUS can’t divulge that information or pricing at this juncture), but it certainly looks like a feature-packed ASUS powerhouse!

  1. Targeting mainstream with this, people that dont want to screw around setting up SSD caching and such. Trying to make it easy as possible to get that extra performance.

    I doubt many of us would buy this but we arent the avg user either. :)
    Thanks for pointing that out mistahtokyo, looks like MattNo5ss got to it. Just for clarity, this wasn't a review, just a quick look at something ASUS is coming out with.

    It definitely runs WII...but how well we can't know yet. :D
