The TUF Sabertooth X79 from ASUS is designed with that all too familiar military feel to it, styled in the very same color as the earlier models with the ceramic design and feel to it, we can see a lot of resemblances alright. This all new LGA2011 motherboard will be powered by a 8+2+2+2 phase Digi+ VRM power design. One of the hip features of the X79 / SBE platform is quad-channel memory. Though nothing has been as rock solid as Intel's 64-bit memory controllers a lot certainly happened.
What should be a prominent feature of the X79 chipset update is the inclusion of PCI Express Gen 3. In a nutshell, PCI Express Gen 3 provides a 2X faster transfer rate than the previous generation, this delivers capabilities for next generation extreme gaming solutions. Good news for Sandy Bridge-E based platforms is overclockability. The original Sandy Bridge processors at the default baseclock (BLCK) were rather horrible to overclock. It has a lot to do with how the processor deals with the embedded graphics subsystem.
If you were lucky you'd be able to increase the baseclock maybe 5 to 10 MHz multiplied at best. This is why the K and now X model processors have been introduced, easy overclocking by increasing the multiplier up-to a multiplier of 57.
