How many new features can you cram onto a motherboard that are both useful and innovative? ASUS is the expert at doing this, and their history of innovations is long: the custom EPU and TPU processors; intelligent fan control, the ability to update your BIOS on a board with no CPU and RAM installed, and so forth. The Z87-Deluxe/Dual LGA1150 motherboard shows that ASUS is not content to rest on its laurels. With new features like Near Field Communications and 802.11ac support, this motherboard has it all.

Of course, fancy hardware along isn’t much good without supporting software, and ASUS has updated their drivers and utilities, especially their flagship AI Suite do-it-all utility. The already excellent UEFI BIOS has been tweaked further and given a fresh coat of paint as well.

The Z87-Deluxe Dual is one of ASUS’ mainstream motherboards, which ASUS has moved from a blue and black color scheme to a black and gold color scheme. While I’m not used to it yet, I will admit that it’s pretty striking…kind reminds me of the John Player race cars of the 70s and 80s, not to mention my friend’s Trans Am. Of course, what we’re really interested in here are the features and performance, so let’s get started.

    Thanks for your Excellent review
    I had read several reviews before buying, and was curious which Ethernet port was the Intel one.
    I just received my new ASUS Z87-Deluxe/Quad motherboard, and it has an “Intel” sticker that covers the top of the ethernet output port (the one closest to the BIOS feedback button), that states in three lines ” Intel Ethernet, Great Capability, GBit LAN”. Then by default, the Ethernet port next to the Analog port is the Realtek port !
