Default DFI X48-T3RS review - redefining the high end ?

A bit late to the market, but, as always, DFI comes in with a bang. Today we have a look at the latest addition to the DFI lineup, in the form of the (ultra) high end X48-T3RS. Does it have what it takes to beat Asus et al? Read on to find out.

The Bernstein Audio Module sports a classic Realtek ALC885 solution, which is a bit of a shame as better solutions are available on some boards. It SUPPORTS ? 8-channel audio with all the usual connectors. Nothing special here.

As you can see however, the Module does not fit into any slot on the motherboard by itself. Instead, it features a 12-pin connector in which the supplied cable fits, while the other end of the cable goes into the motherboard of course. The benefit of this solution is the fact that you can plug the audio module in whatever expansion slot of your case you like, depending on where and how many other expansion cards you've got plugged in. The cable could have been a little longer though, as the bottom-most expansion slot was not reachable even with a completely stretched cable.

A typing error, I think. In the article it says 'sport'

Fixed "Sports" is a possible word in this case too though

Great review Thorgal, looks like another DFI masterpiece.

Dunno about Oskar Wu being the best engineer on this planet, but way to ground the review in history a bit by bringing up the NF7-S. I've still got mine, and I still love it .
