titleBeing a car guy when I first saw the P8P67 EVO from Asus I couldn’t help connect the EVO name with a Mitsubishi Evo. I can’t imagine that Asus would somehow manage to get the boxy styling and sharp lines of the Lancer Evo, but maybe it has the raw power that the Evo is known for. Either way, I know that by the end of this review I will be drifting sideways in DIRT 2 ether way. Before that I will go over ASUS’s standard P67 product lineup and the P8P67 EVO’s feature set. While we are in there we will also test its performance and take a close look at the include software.

Product Name: Asus P8P67 EVO

That's the one bad thing about Sandybridge, the shortage of PCI-e. Anyone wanting to use a Revo Drive had better be prepared to sacrifice a bunch of stuff to get it to work. Hopfully someone will make a board with a NF200 chip on it, adding more lanes.

I agree Chris but those Revo Drives are not cheap. I am fine with my ol' Intel SSD.

The new Revo drives average 1330mb/sec transfere. If I didn't have this motherboard and had the money for one of the smaller ones, I'd get it. Maybe with the Christmas bonus, unless there's new GPUs out that need buying.
