ASRock z68 vs p67

post #1 of 10
Thread Starter 
Hello.

Would I notice any tangible difference by getting this motherboard:

over this motherboard:

http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16813157265

As far as I can tell, the only difference is z68 allows you control over SB's IGP (Which I am guessing I wouldn't need if I have a discrete?) and SSD caching(Would I need this if I already have a 128gb SSD as boot?). Any important thing I'm missing?

Thanks.

That's about it. I went with the P67, as I have a dedicated video card, and SSD caching doesn't appeal to me.

The tangible difference is about $50. If you do not plan on using any of the above then the P67 is for the win.

Nope. You nailed it. That is why I am using a P67 - didn't need anything Z68 offered.

Well the P67 Extremem GEN3 has support for ivy, I believe those that are GEN3 will have native Iyy suport, whereas the other's may just require a BIOS update for Ivy, Asus is a perfect example of that, yes they're releasing the GEN3 mobo's however the current P67 and Z68 have received a BIOS update (2001 BIOS) for Ivybridge support, but not exactly sure which ones.

I think Ivy Bridge will work on z7xx series not the z6xx. Unless Intel releases a bios fix.
