With Z68, you have the choice of using enhancedmode, with less chance of data loss, or maximized mode, which means data loss if either drive(s) fails........ exactly as with RAID0.

Maximized mode offers a significant speed enhancement over enhanced mode, but not worth the risk in this day of (relatively) frequent HDD failures............

A real enthusiast will use SSD's the way they should be used - For OS install, programs and games. Storage on harddrives. So for OCN people and enthusiasts this feature is useless.

The way I see it, this could have been a good enough feature for Office computers.

Please refrain from just talking about SSDs like your other threads. The point of this thread is supposed to point out the differences between the two chipsets, not the superiority of SSDs.

Blue Devil..I found this opinion from another poster on another thread. It may be helpful to you...copy/paste

It would be far better to think of the integrated graphics as a dedicated encoding processor than an inferior alternative to discreet graphics. Then your statement runs something like this:

H67 is for your run of the mill home computer user - someone who is going to be using it for email and word processing. Your non-enthusiast who does some video encoding / transcoding on the side to shift files onto their portable media.

p67 is your enthusiast board for the gamer that has no use for a transcoding processor - effectively just another motherboard and CPU upgrade on which you can do the same things, but a bit faster. Like i7 vs Core 2 Quad.

z68 is for those that use their computer for design, video, audio, and other things that are very CPU dependent, as well as anything requiring decent discreet graphics like gaming. In particular, the 3x speed boost and appreciable quality difference of video encoding and transcoding.


The boundaries between the 3 are quite blurred - a Z68 user who doesn't OC could've used an H67, but if they didn't do any video encoding then they could've gone for a P67.
I personally am going for a Z68 for the SSD caching, but if I subsequently get a larger SSD then I might as well have a P67, since I don't encode video at all.

This sounds to me like the use of a Office computer

The H67 is suited for an Office system as things are now..

But remember, more and more people are getting SSD's. I've even installed SSD's in our Office computers, where I work. So the world will slowly move over to SSD's. More and more.

Z68 brings a 'hybrid', namely to use SSD as caching for Harddrives. This can greatly benefit the performance, while at the same time being much cheaper VS using bigger SSD's. So in time, I think H67 will be phased out and the Z68 will take over it's position.

I wholeheartedly agree. I waited for the Z68 to get to market just so I could get that feature. To me it is the best of both worlds. To others...they see no value in it at all and that is fine by me.

I see no value in arguing the merits in either direction. Lay the features out there and let each person decide which version they want to buy. I'm not going to try to sway any one to decide either way. I have witnessed too much of that this past week.
