The New Intel Z68 Chipset Reviewed

Posted by Hooch Tan in "Digital Home News" @ 11:00 AM

"Architecturally Intel's Z68 chipset is no different than the H67. It supports video output from any Sandy Bridge CPU and has the same number of USB, SATA and PCIe lanes. What the Z68 chipset adds however is full overclocking support for CPU, memory and integrated graphics giving you the choice to do pretty much anything you'd want."

Premium motherboards come with lots of nice bells and whistles. From overclocking (Overclocking is an OK feature now?) to hardware acceleration. I find Intel's Smart Response Technology interesting though, which sounds a lot like a souped up ReadyBoost. I also have to wonder whether someone who is interested in a high end motherboard such as this would be skimping on their storage options. I would most likely already be using a SSD as my system/application drive and use high capacity HDDs for media.

"This board from ASUS is a great all-round performer, compared to the P67 boards we have reviewed-space for tri-GPU setups, six fan headers with good OS fan controls, eight SATA ports, six with RAID 0/1/5/10, Intel gigabit Ethernet and it performs well in our benchmark suite."

AnandTech has posted their review of one of the first Z68 motherboards, the ASUS P8Z68-V PRO. This ASUS Z68 board can accept an i3, i5 or i7 Sandy Bridge processor. It has four 240-pin DDR3 DIMM slots making the maximum amount of RAM possible 32GB. There are two USB 3.0 ports and has expansion slots that support ATI Crossfire and NIVIDIA SLI. The expected retail price is $210.00.

If you are in the market for a new motherboard and want to know if this board suits your needs, take a look at the in depth review at AnandTech.
