Asus A8V Deluxe "Wireless Edition" (Socket 939)

@ 2004/06/15
It has been barely over a week since we first took a look at AMD's new Socket 939 Athlon 64s, and motherboards equipped with the new socket have already started to arrive in the HotHardware Labs. The first motherboard to land on our test bench is the fully-loaded Asus A8V Deluxe "Wireless Edition". The A8V Deluxe is powered by VIA's excellent K8T800 Pro chipset, and sports a host of useful features like SATA RAID, Gigabit Ethernet, WiFi and 8-Channel audio with digital outputs. It's also "Cool 'N Quiet" capable and has wide array of BIOS options geared towards novice and advanced overclockers alike. Looking at the feature set, it seems like Asus is trying to make a big splash in the Socket 939 market from the get go. However, as we've said many times before, features, bells and whistles are great but stability and performance are king. So, let's fire her up and see what this baby is made of.
