We first saw the Sabertooth name pop up with the introduction of the P67 chipset. The next time we'd see the name show up wasn't in the form of the Z68, though, it was instead in the AMD based 990FX chipset and it didn't quite have that same look about it as the shroud that covered the board wasn't present.
While passed over on the Z68 chipset, the Sabertooth has appeared straight away come launch of the X79 chipset and brings with it the "TUF Components" that give ASUS the confidence to strap a massive 5 year warranty onto the board.
While we've already looked at the ASUS Sabertooth X79 in preview form, like our previous ASUS previews there was still a number of things we couldn't tell you. At the same time, we couldn't show you the bundle of the board, so that's something else we'll be showing you today.
So looking at the layout today, there won't be any surprises. We'll start off by looking at the package of the board including what's in the bundle. Once we've done that we'll move onto the motherboard itself and cover a few of the details that we couldn't when we originally previewed the board. From there we'll move onto the BIOS to see what's going on in that department before we take a look at the overclocking capabilities of the board.
ASUS has put together a big box here and you can see it opens up to give us an absolute wealth of information covering all the main features of the Sabertooth board. Of course, most of it is revolved around the "Military Standard" TUF Components along with some of the exclusive ASUS features that are on offer.
Moving inside, the bundle isn't huge; we've got some paperwork to go with six SATA cables, SLI bridge, EZ-Connectors, little fan that can be added to the board and our typical I/O plate.
