Sell Gigabyte GA-P67A-UD4-B3 and get GA-Z68X-UD4-B3?

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
Hello everyone, I just heard about the Intel® Smart Response Technology which is supported in Z68 chipset and the ability to use processor graphics.

So guys do you recommend me to get the Z68, is it worth the money?

And about my P67 UD4 mobo I have been using it for one month and bought it for 230 AUD. At what price I should sell it?

Thanks

That's like wanting to sell a Nissan Skyline for a Nissan Skyline that has a body kit.

If you're concerned about BIOS future upgrades, most of the boards (at least UD5 and UD7) are crossflashable to Z68 with a modded BIOS, and people are already experimenting with this right now, so either way you'll be covered. Not sure if UD4 is crossflashable, as UD5 and UD7 have identical VRM's as the Z68 versions, and I think the P67X-UD4 (which was never released) became the Z67X-UD4 (with more phases). If the USB 3.0 chip changed, however, there may be issues using modded BIOSes.

Also keep in mind that GB was making bios updates for their old P45 UD3P for over a year after they stopped producing the board.
