Asus TUF X299 Mark 1 review - the unstoppable armor

Once upon a time in Asus products it was a motherboard series called TUF Sabertooth. Somehow in the timeline, both the saber and the tooth faded away, so the latest motherboards, based on Intel X299 chipset, are called only TUF. There are 2 versions: Mark 1 and Mark 2, and the differences are in favor of the price, meaning that former is the better featured solution.

Asus send me the X299 TUF Mark 1 motherboard for review and you can read about the results in these very pages.
