Default Asus P5K3 Premium Motherboard Review

Asus makes a good looking, well made product with a great layout that's an evolution of the P5K series we've seen before. But the thing is, is that it's just like the P5K series. The features might as well be identical and even though the concept is very innovative and screams "buy me because I'm cool" but would you drop 550 on 2GB of memory and a motherboard?

It's meant to be a bit of a stop gap solution but performance DDR2 memory is so cheap and the actual performance difference is still very low, so the intermediate market just isn't really there. Will it sway the hardcore early adopters with money? Probably not as the likelihood is that those people upgrade every other day, so soldering memory to the motherboard will be too restrictive for them.

So great concept and potential motherboard, but questionable market appeal. Does it have enough in the performance from the unique memory architecture to warrant the investment?
