Z68 pricing? Asus Video added

post #1 of 58
Thread Starter 
Has anyone heard anything about the price structure for the new Z68 mobos? Will all of the manufacturers have them? I am mainly interested in ASUS and Gigabyte boards. Something comparable to the Asus P67 Pro model?

How good are the onboard graphics supposed to be? Would the onboard be suitable for a non gamer?

The Z68 is a the premium line of boards. They will probably be starting at $249 and moving upwards.


EDIT:http://www.aria.co.uk/Products/Compo...+Z68+%28B3%29/

They start at $250 CAD and move upwards.

Doubt it. They will likely be priced to competitively replace the p67 market.

Thanks for the replies so far . A $10/$15 increase is ok coz if it is $75 more then you might as well go P67 and buy a GPU.

How about the onboard graphics. I heard they were much improved. Anybody got input on that?

It’s not clear though whether that’s as a result of the positioning of the Z68 as the new premium chipset (replacing the P67) or simply MSI’s choice
- Bit Tech

But of course, that is my opinion the prices will start from $249 and up since the p67 boards aren't going to disappear from the market or drop rapidly in value.

z68 isn't the premium line X58 is. It offers nothing more over P67 than the IGPu and SSD caching which IMO is bigger.

They are for different target markets, but Z68 isn't all that much of an upgrade. I doubt boards will start at 249 you guys are nuts. Companies are introducing whole new lines.

I read an atricle that stated that Z68 MoBos will be prices around the P67 Mobos'.

I'll spect it to be maybe $10-$15 More.
