ASUStek Computer Incorporated is the number one motherboard manufacturer in the world. One third of the motherboards sold last year were ASUS boards. They manufacture motherboards based upon chipsets from every chipset manufacturer including ATI, NVIDIA, VIA, Intel and SIS. They make motherboards, video cards and other computer components.

Intel is the number one CPU (Central Processor Unit) manufacturer and chipset manufacturer in the world. They have maintained that dominance throughout the Wintel era (Windows Intel). They introduced their 925X chipset along with their new LGA-775 processors a little over two years ago. Earlier this year Intel introduced their Core 2 Duo and Core 2 Extreme CPUs. The new chipset to support these CPUs was called the 965P. The motherboard I'm reviewing today is the ASUS P5B Deluxe Wi-Fi AP Edition motherboard based upon the Intel 965P chipset.
