Not much we didn't already know
Asus has put up its Nvida 780i-based P5N-T Deluxe motherboard on its Website; and the truth be told, there isn't much we didn't already know about this board thanks to various previews all over the Web.
The only really interesting part is the fact that this is one of the first boards to support Nvidia's new ESA standard, which lets it monitor a wide range of system components via a piece of software in Windows.
We have yet to see who will actually launch compatible components, and we're not holding our breath that this will be a popular standard; but with the right marketing behind it, it could well be, at least if Nvidia is smart and makes it an open standard that can be used on non-Nvidia motherboards, as well.
The P5N-T Deluxe is also one of the first boards to officially support three-way SLI, and the marketing blurb on Asus's Website claims that this can deliver nearly three times the performance in some applications, although we highly doubt this will be the case.
