Looks like a few nice new features added to the boards there. Not enough to warrant an upgrade from an existing Asus board, but still a few bonus features neverless.

From a cursory glance, I noticed some things:

1) The nVidia 500 and 590 chipsets are used, but not the 680i...? And the P965 chipset from Intel got the nod on both of the other two mobos? I know a lot of guys preferred the P965 over the 975X chipset, but why cut out the choices? Something, to me, smells fishy...

Personally I think they've just done it to their most successful boards. The P5B was a massive success, but the 680i a bit of a let down with all its problems. As for 975X...maybe its just not vista certifiable :/
