You can rip a DVD/BlueRay in much less than a third of the time any P67 rig can.

And I think you can do it without the virtue software just like an H67 if your graphics card is hooked up to your TV or vice versa, thats the real question that needs answered.

As far as the SSD cashe feature, I wouldn't touch that with a 10 foot pole, just run your OS on a 60GB SSD there won't be any savings buying the 20GB SSD thats rated for the cashing abuse, and the performance hit is awful.

Me!

I only found out about lack of quicksync till after id bought my p8p67 evo. I also like the idea of the energy savings you can get from lucid, your discrete gpu and the intel gpu but 10% is quite a high performance hit. Perhaps if they could of done a hdmi/dvi passthrough cable or something like back in the voodoo2 days. Then we'd not have a re-routed intel gpu latency issue you could just switch either using passthrough.
