ASUS Z87I-Deluxe Motherboard Review

Our Final Thoughts

ASUS has built one amazing product stack from the top to bottom making a board to match virtually any need or build type you may find.

Their mini ITX options from the Maximus VI Impact to this Deluxe model are bursting at the seams with features and also performance tuning.

The addition of Wireless AC compatibility means that you are ready for the fastest current wireless standard available.

WiFi GO! functionality makes the board capable of wireless connectivity within your home that exceeds most anything you would probably ever use it for.

Add to this the massive VRM, extensive software tuning, massive fan control features and overall performance tuning available and you can see that this board has serious potential for anyone looking to build a monster mini Haswell based rig.

The Pro’s: Cons
  • Intel Gigabit LAN
  • Wireless AC Compatibility
  • High end Audio codec
  • Strong VRM with choice DIGI+ Components
  • Extensive IO connectivity
  • Excellent UEFI with new cool features
  • Newly designed software
  • completely solid state caps
  • WiFiGO! for easy home network and sharing setup
  • Color choice is a give/take for some users

The Steam Deck – Valve delivers an excellent PC handheld

Valve is an interesting company that seems to try to be a lot of things at the same time. Games company, software hub/store and hardware company. Valve is all of these. When it comes to hardware the company has had mixed success. I think many of us remember the Steam Machines. These compact computers running SteamOS, a Linux based OS, were supposed to make Windows PC’s obsolete for gaming. They didn’t succeed. Valve also released a specific controller, the Steam Controller, which also did not exactly set the world on fire. In hindsight though both these products have paved the way for the product I am testing today, the Steam Deck, Valves attempt to compete with the Nintendo Switch in the handheld market.
