Asus P8Z68 Deluxe or Asus P8P67 Deluxe V3?

post #1 of 22
Thread Starter 
Both these boards are really appealing to me but im curious as to what would better prepare me for the future

Asus P8Z68 Deluxe specs

OR

Asus P8P67 Deluxe V3 specs

I had my heart set on the p67 then i saw that the new z68 comes with a thing called ssd caching to get a secondary drive to perform at/near ssd speeds.

Im just curious in this case. Is new actually going to be better?

Oh and incase anyone asks this will be my setup to go with it

The P8Z68 because it does everything the P8P67 does plus everything the P8H67 does.

The P does processor over clocking while the H does video over clocking. The Z does both.

Exactly. Thats why Intel released the Z68 chip. It's basically a chip that allows CPU graphics on SB chips with overclock capability.

How that benefit me if i have a gtx 570? Or am i missing something
post #5 of 22
Z68 is for people who can't afford a large SSD but want some of the performance benefits. In addition, it helps with video editing and transcoding. If you don't do either of those, I doubt you would benefit from Z68.

I also couldn't decided which to get. After thinking it over, Z68 would likely cost more and bring me little benefit. The P8P67 Deluxe deal for $200 this afternoon sealed the deal for me.

Yeah, the graphics on the processor helps with video transcoding through hardware acceleration. At the Intel site today, with a discrete video card, the processor was running at 90 to 95 percent while transcode a video to Facebook. It took 10 minutes and you couldn't do anything with your computer. With the integrated video active the processor off loaded that to hardware and only 10 percent of the processor was utilized. On top of that it only took 6 minutes to transcode the video.

Not sure I said all the correctly BUT you want the ability to do more with your machine. This is OCN after all. smile.gif

So i see the z68 as being overly prepared for the future, is that safe to say?
All im worried about is the fact that is it new.. and hasnt been fully ironed out where as the p67 has been tested and proven to perform
post #8 of 22
I read a couple different reviews that have said Intel confirmed the Z68 chipset will be compatible with Ivy bridge, not sure about the p67 though.

I'm also holding out for a Z68 Deluxe. I think the SSD caching will be worth it for the extra C300 64Gb I have to pair with normal HD but the I'm going to keep the os on the other ssd.

Its funny i was literally just researching what motherboards will be considered compatible with the Ivy bridge. And if what youre saying is true. I dont see any reason not to go for the z68?

What are the gigabyte z68s like? To me they seem almost identical? Ive got a gigabyte at the moment and its been fantastic I just like the colour scheme on the Asus, its far more appealling to me
post #10 of 22
Intel doesn't want another chip set fiasco like they had with p67, it cost them a billion dollars in recalls. I'm sure they thoroughly checked the z68 before they went out the door.

I've read a few owner reviews on Newegg and Tomshardware. I think the Asus boards is where it's at (looking at all the great reviews on the p8z68 pro) but they really need to get on with releasing the Deluxe in the states. As far as the Gigabytes.. I read that Gigabyte stopped producing motherboards with the p67 and full on switched to z68. To me that confirms you want to be on z68 as there could be more support for it processor wise or anything else in the future.

*note some of the gigabyte boards on the z68 don't support Lucid Virtu ?? I don't know whats up with leaving out one of the main features on the z68, especially since their boards are going for high dollar compared to others ex:
