ASRock Z87 Extreme6/ac Motherboard Review
Launched in early June of 2013, reactions to Intel’s Haswell platform were very mixed. Not everyone sees a benefit in Haswell products, enthusiast and PC part makers alike, so many board partners have focused on solidifying the features of each product segment their product caters to, leading to an evolution in board design I find pretty exciting. I have received well over 20 board samples prior to the launch, and I’ve picked a few of them to be shown first, over the past couple months. Most of those have been new designs, but older product positions from past generations are still here, and we get to take our first look at one of those products today. The ASRock Z87 Extreme6/ac is a mainstream, user-focused product with a good amount of bells and whistles to help you get a bit more out of your Haswell experience.
