Those 5xxx intel reviews were some of the worst reviews I have ever read. So bad infact I'm not even going to bother reading the X99 motherboard reviews.

Please HWC save me!

Well, from a quick glance from what I've read so far, just poorly written.

And just how would you have written a review? Perhaps your problem is, the English language. I understood pretty much everything. The reviews provided are as good as any out there. This is all new stuff. I'm sure you'll find reviews right here at HC in the next couple of days.

I don't have much of a problem with the content, but the actual written English was cringe-worthy. If you're writing a review for an English speaking audience, make sure its pleasant to read for that same English audience.

Irony.

The articles were poorly written, and feels like s/he read the boxes with specs and regurgitated them back to me, while adding some graphs containing statistical data. If I wanted that kind of information I could read the box.

I'm sorry I have an opinion about the article being bad. I'll try not to offend you next time by voicing it.

My post was regarding X99 motherboards not the CPUs. I'm interested in the Rampage V and that article was the first in depth review I found. I simply thought I would share that with my fellow HC members.

How does the DPC latency compare for X99 against the Z97/Z87/X79? Maybe I missed it in the reviews I've read so far.
