PureOC: We’ve seen a flurry of activity from manufacturers for the release of 990FX chipset motherboards in advance of the highly-anticipated CPU launch called Bulldozer from AMD. One of those companies that’s been busy is ASUS. We saw the premium Republic of Gamer Crosshair V Formula motherboard and came away suitably impressed. But as an elite motherboard, it’s very expensive. So for those performance seekers that can’t quite afford the top of the line, the ASUS Sabertooth 990FX may just be up their alley.
