In conclusion, this ASUS P4S8X is a good all-around board. It has all the features you would ever want in a motherboard like Serial ATA, AGP 8x, DDR 333 support etc. Performance-wise, this board seems to be a bit slow. The SiS 648 chipset is a fast chipset as you have seen in other SiS 648 based board reviews. But unfortunately, the P4S8X still has a few problems in this sector and Asus has promised to release a BIOS soon with a big performance jump.
This board is retailing at about US$139, so is well priced compared to the other boards out there. Anybody looking for a feature packed board with a promising future should check this board out.
We would like to thank all the members over at http://www.asusboards.com for helping us out with ironing out the stability problems.
