Asus Z77 motherboard
Asus Z77 motherboard questions follow up:
14) Will ASUS follow up their release of Intel Thunderbolt support on select Z77 motherboards with their own ASUS branded line of Thunderbolt products?
15) The modular nature of having a Thunderbolt header on the supporting ASUS Z77 motherboards interfacing with an add-in card for full support raises the question if a controller upgrade would be possible down the line if the controller is on the add-in card?
So for example, would Thunderbolt supporting Z77 ASUS motherboards be upgradable to future optical implementations of Intel Thunderbolt by upgrading the interface card connecting to the header on the motherboard?
Will there be a vast
Will there be a vast difference in the thunderbolt speeds of an original mac, and this chipset based system?
Will there be more chipsets after this one? or will this socket be extinct after next year?
What will be the price range to get one of these?, will there be slightly lower range boards?

Which brand/model Wireless cards are validated and supported for the onboard mPCIE slots ?
Does WiFi-Go+BT-Go Module
Does WiFi-Go+BT-Go Module bundled with P8Z77-V Deluxe could be used on P8Z77-V / PRO instead of using the bundled WiFi-Go Module? Could this be interchangeable across all the compatible Asus Z77 motherboards? Sort of compatibility with each other?
The same thing on mPCIe combo card bundled on Maximus V Gene, could I use the WiFi-Go module on it instead the mPCIe combo card?
Would there be a seperate retail WiFi-Go+BT-Go or mPCIe combo card that can be bought in the near future so I could equipped that on P8Z77-V / PRO or Maximus V Gene?
Will the WiFi Go! software be
Will the WiFi Go! software be compatible with other Asus boards like the Sabertooth Z77? Or will it only work with those boards that already have the WiFi module built-in?
