Intels new Z68-Chip for Socket-1155-Boards should provide all OC-Functions and also support the Sandy-Bridge integrated graphics Unit. MSI exhibited at the Cebit their first Z68-Mainboard and several H61-Boards.
Quote:
The Z68A-GD80 is ab High-End-Socket-1155-Board from MSI: Die Board supports SLI and Crossfire and still use the integrated graphics thanks to the Z68-Chip. Overclockers will be pleased about diagnostic LEDs, Power- and Reset-Switches directly on the Board and exemplary converted voltage measurement points.

Yeah this is basically it although it's H67.

IMHO they should have made the Z68 Chipset more like the X58 and P55 in the regard of the locked base clock, I for one feel like they dumbing down overclocking. I mean either your chip will do that speed or it won't, I just feel like theres no user input in the SB overclocking there for no sense of achievement.

Intel.

Noone wants to OC and use the Indegraded Graphics Decelerator.

Stop pushing it on consumers who're likely to install a PCI-E Graphics card anyway. :I

With SSD caching as well - use your hard drive as you normally would and the motherboard can use an SSD as a hidden cache for it and the most frequently used files.

I wouldn't mind using the onboard graphics for stuff like desktop work and only power on the dedicated GPU for gaming/compute functions using a system like Nvidia's Optimus.

The problem here is.

It doesn't.

I guess I'll wait until May to build my system.

So what is H61 supposed to be for? I was looking at the Asus H61 boards earlier and they look like H67 boards minus the video connections. They look like super-budget motherboards, but why no integrated GPU then? And only 2 DIMM slots?
Here's an example.

.


I personally don't get this function. I mean my SSD is my OS system drive along with every app I need (30GB in a 60GB drive.). Using it as a caching, what's the advantage? I just don't know enough about it, but am not convinced this is worth waiting for in leu of a P67 if your SSD is your OS drive. Maybe it would be valuable to those with large game libraries?
