Better on-board LAN for gaming and normal use

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
Hello guy's,
I'm about to buy a Z68 motherboard and are in doubt between two models.
Asus P8Z68-V PRO or ASRock Z68 Extreme4!
They are very similar the only thing I want to know is which one integrated LAN is better :
Intel ® 82579 Gigabit LAN on Asus or Broadcom BCM57781 Gigabit LAN on Asrock.
In the area of gaming there may be a substantial difference between the two LANs also in terms of ping?
There are big differences between the two LANs?
Thanks to all

I doubt there will be a substantial difference, but if there were, I would probably bet on the intel being better.

Really no difference for gaming.

Broadcom also makes decent chipsets, your usage patterns will not be affected either way you go.

Gigbit lan is gigbit lan is gigabit lan. I'd be more concerned with the other onboard components.
