    ..in New Zealand. Link

    My local retailer has started selling Asus and Gigabyte Z77 boards. Features are looking nice and pricing is pretty much the same as the previous gen. What do we think?

    I'm sure they'll be cheaper when officially released. I wonder what Intel think if they are not meant to be released yet :)

    I might opt for a Maximus V Extreme (or even a Gene version) if Asus make one. It would look good alongside my other ROG boards :)

    Been having a look around some websites for other NZ retailers. Seems like everyone has them listed as in-store and ready to walk in and get one. Could the release have been pushed forward to the 5th perhaps?

    EDIT: Pricing is slightly higher than Z68 but is lower than it was on release from what I can remember.

    It may be that Intel have released them before IB is ready, so that in some areas at least people will be ready for the new processors. Either way, all the reviews will be out before I get my 3770K, I won't have the money until about 2-3 weks after they are released. At least I'll have fair warning about any problems :)

    Hmmm interesting, scan told me they where being released sunday night/monday morning in the UK at least.

    The again the question I asked them was "what's happened to the Rampage IV extrem (X79 Lga 2011 right?)

    and the response they gave me "We've made it End Of Life! All New Range of Ivy Boards get Released on Sunday! We recommend you wait!"

    :duh:

    sorry rant over*

    The GENE version is out first (now/soon), while the Formula will arrive in May :)

    There are several countries selling already, more will follow next week.

    If I buy one, it'll be next month. Gotta stop spending for a few weeks before IB is out :) It's good to know the release is official though.

    I wonder if the on-board sound on the Maximus Gene is any good.

    Bindi, it seems strange why Asus uses Creative's x-fi sound rather than their own Xonar sound devices in their own motherboard?

    X-Fi ? They use Realtek, same as before. The EAX/X-Fi stuff is just licenced, no actual Creative hardware is used.
