ASUS P8Z68 and Ivybridge

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
Hello!


I need to ask a 2 part question about the Ivybridge CPU's and ASUS P8Z68 Boards

First Part:

Do you have an ASUS Z68 Board with the BIOS Update that will allow it to support Intel 22nm CPU's

Second Part:

Can you confirm if the Updated Z68 board is working with an IB CPU and does it have the same performance like those of the Z77 boards?



Help is much appreciated!

Good day to all!

z68's should run IB cpu's fine as you said with a BIOS update.. you would have to look on the Asus site for the correct latest BIOS.. as to performance with the CPU should be similar but will come down to the chip itself..

IMO, i dont see the point of going from a Sandy which i see in your sig to an Ivy.. i would wait for atleast Haswell before upgrading as that will be worth it smile.gif
