So we finally get to have a play with one of the new X79 Motherboards this week. The ASUS Sabertooth X79 to be exact
Put with that a Core i7 – 3930K, 16GB of DDR3 1333MHz RAM and a couple of Asus Geforce GTS 450’s in SLi and we had a bit of fun.
Windows 7 Home Premium 64-Bit edition installed from a USB 3 pen drive in roughly 9 minutes flat onto the 6GBPs Seagate Barracuda drive. Anyway… that’s the boring bit….. now for the good stuff. Crysis 2 🙂
As I’m sure most of you are aware, Crysis 2 has got one of the best and most detailed graphic engines written to date, and with a couple of DX11 GPU’s and the tesselation pack installed….. looks properly out of this world! Even though it’s only in Extreme graphics mode with no 3D, it really does run smoothly on this system.
We look forward to your comments on this post.
