What is the Difference between H67 and P67?

post #1 of 13
Thread Starter 
Bit of a newb question, but what is the big difference between the H67 and P67 chipsets for the new SandyBridge range.

After reading around myself, what I can determine is that the P67 does not feature integrated graphics. Now, by "intergrated" graphics, does that mean the H67 features an on-board card, or does it mean it's using the new 2nd Gen Cores graphics capabilities?

Me and my friend are both looking to upgrade to the i7 2600 range and we are both packed dual cores for now, Me Intel and him AMD.

The reason I'm looking into this more in-depth is because I am building on a roughly £600 budget, going to be using my current case, my current cpu, current sata drives and dvd writer. All I am looking at is New mobo, new Cpu, new ram. And if I have enough a new graphics card and psu (incase my current one doesn't support the graphics card). Due to me being on more of a budget, I want to get the motherboard that definitely supports the graphics on the cpu which then gives me a choice to either use the cpu or use my 9400gt, -facepalm- yes I know... bad graphics card lol... This is why I am thinking H67.

Whereas my mate is not going to have a limit on his build and he's going to go with i7, 12gb ram, new hard disks, new bd-rom, new amd graphics, new psu, new case. Basically a entirely new build. And he wants the right chipset that leans towards the more dedicated graphics card side of things, the lack of intergrated graphics to which I believe is the P67.

I'd like some input on this thank guys

Sigh.

H67 = Integrated Graphics, not really meant for 2500K and 2600K processors.
P67 = No Integrated Graphics, optimal for 2500K and 2600K.

2600K & 2500K have unlocked multiplier. OC as much as you want as long as it's on a P67 board.
Though the 2500 and 2600 (not K) allow some OCing but is limited.

Ahh brilliant

Thank you for clarifying that. -Gives rep-

Also P allows for SLI Cards and Crossfire while H doesn't I do believe.

Another thing,
2600K & 2500K offer Intel HD 3000 Graphics, where as the 2500 & 2600 offer HD 2000 Graphics.

H is for Horrible.
P is for Pie.
X is for XTRASAUZ.

Perfect example. Basically, if you want to tweak your system at all as opposed to using it as an "internet box" for your grandma, get the P67 and k chips. (**Not saying H67, non-K chips, or grandmas are bad...)

Sigh. Maybe you should read the OP, he has a budget.

IMO, its really simple to me.

H67 -> when you want to use igp OR don't care about overclock.
P67 -> when you want to overclock AND don't care about IGP

Yup, you can't have IGP + overclock, at least for now. A new chipset is supposed to come soon (Z68) that will combine both worlds, but there is no schedule set in stone, for all I know.

PS: remember that you still can overclock non-K processors. Yes, the multi is not unlocked but still you get 4x above the turbo multiplier, which should net you something around ~500mhz extra. Of course this is not as good as a K processor..but something is better than nothing
