Imo, the z68 chipset is only worth it if you'll use the features. I see no reason to upgrade from p67.

The thing is, I still don't have a P67 motherboard. I decided to wait for the Z68 Is it wise to just buy the Z68 now? I mean, am I not missing anything if I opt to get a Z68 (does a P67 have an advantage over the Z68?)?

Cheaper?

Other than that.. maybe having "more stuff" has more chance of bugs or physical defects.. you'd need more tests to run and make sure the features that your motherboard offers are working well. Make it quick.. you may run out of warranty too.

Unless someone here clarifies that you can turn of features such as hybrid iGPU/dGPU.. and just use one at a time safely even if you have to reconfigure BIOS settings if you want to use either.. z68 may be worth it for just about 30-40 bucks when you're buying a 160+ USD p67 board.

I am kinda concerned with Virtu bugs and gtiches (if they even have).. that's the only real concern I have with z68.

Same here, I'm worried about the possible bugs that Virtu can present since it is software-based. No one here has extensively tested the capability of Z68?

Can you use Virtu with a motherboard that doesn't have a video out?

I'd also love to know more about that. Maybe you can just turn it off and the Virtu isn't Mandatory. Hopefully someone here clarifies that for us.

Good second question as well. Most of the higher end GIGABYTE lineup don't have a video out on their Mobo.. I'd love to be sure as well.

The ASRock dude said "NO" tho.. watch this:


he said that only their mobo is a true z68 unlike giga's on that vid.

Hmmm, that's interesting. With Gigabyte removing video out for their high-end motherboard models, that means they're practically removing the support for Virtu and hence the capability of Quicksync for encoding videos. But why would they do that? Because Virtu degrades the performance of the discreet video card? Why not just offer a "disable" setting for Virtu then?

Id save a few $$ and go P67, or wait.
Plus with P67 you don't have to deal with the multi step LLC on UD5 and UD7, which is, just rather crappy and unstable (weird spikes at light load with LLC7 +) (and you can't use multi step LLC with offsets). (you can use bios f3g for ud5 and f3h for ud7) I'm loving offsets+C1E with LLC1 at 5 ghz...1.524v at light load, 1.512v at medium load, 1.5v at heavy load and 1.1v/1.6 ghz idle...

That's alot better than having 1.58v idle with fixed vcore for 1.5v load with LLC1....

And the old LLC2 is reliable...1.50v bios, 1.512v light load 1.524v heavy load.

You can sleep with internal pll overvoltage enabled with latest bioses or z68 bioses as gigabyte made the board completely repost to BIOS when resuming.

In other words, you prefer P67 all the way than Z68? Z68 is not stable in voltages?

I believe he's talking about GIGABYTE.
