And if I'm correct the software needs to support the use of CUDA and I believe the cpu needs to be Intel and GPU needs to be Nvidia. So your need these 3 combined to make use of it. But don't pin me on that.

ahh found one: http://www.guru3d.com/article/asus-p8z68-v-pro-review/5.

A friend of mine has it on his H67.

agreed.

anyways id go P67 honestly, unless you really think video transcoding is faster, but when gaming and you have to go through that virtu software thats no good.

They have that Z68XP-UD4 too, idk if the P67 is cheaper which it is, id get that.

Z68 has been out for a good while now...And honestly I don't think almost nobody cares about Lucid Virtu or Smart Response tech. People like to use SSD's as standalone, for even more speed.

Lucid Virtu... Well... Who cares?

Personally, I could see value in Virtu as I do video transcoding very rarely (rarely enough for it to not be a factor) and I do play video games on a more regular, if infrequent, basis. I haven't decided whether I'll bother putting it to use when I do get around to buying a video card, but it's intriguing as far as reducing heat and saving energy (yeah, I know nobody cares about that here).

For the last two years, I've had a laptop with switchable graphics, and even though I disabled the feature, there are times when it would have been useful if I enabled it (like on a 14-hour flight when you realize you only have one battery and none of the seats in coach have power ports). That sort of thing obviously doesn't matter for desktops, but the fact that Quick Sync actually has a tangible performance benefit does give Virtu some value, albeit not much.
