Z68 is a few months away, second gen P67 is a month away, that is my speculation from info from OEMs.

Do you have some further info on this ?
Every website I've seen says to expect the Z68 somewhere between a week and a month from now. I'd really be interested to see some details on these 2nd gen p67 boards as well !

yea maybe they release at the same time, but of course they always say release early and it gets pushed back.

Well since the NDA was only lifted a few minutes ago, it'll probably be ~24hrs before all the reviews go live and while before we get some real world feedback. The P67 took a few weeks before all the bugs started to surface. I think Asus is still trying to fix the P67 S3 sleep bugs and voltage issues.

no idea.
I just built my sig rig.
sat down and 10-minutes later (after the build of course) I was at a stable and simple 4.5ghz. no need to even dink around with it for gaming beyond that (or 4.0 imho)
easiest 4.5ghz I've ever experienced... and with a $25 air cooler, temps only hit 62c and I could probably tweak my voltage... but it will never see full load and it only hits 32c during gaming sessions. idles @ 25-26c

Why the heck are people even recommending Z68? It costs $40-50 more, for god's sake.

The embedded graphics in the z68 won't help with gaming, they are really for if you don't have a video card. I would get the z68 mainly because the smart caching feature makes SSD's affordable. You can have big files on small SSD's basically. It's kinda confusing but it works.

It's simple.

If you have the extra money AND you NEED the onboard graphics and the ssd caching then by all means go for a Z68 mobo.

If you DON'T NEED it, then get a P67, neither overclocks better or worse.

It's about your needs



EDIT: It's a bit like the 2500k vs 2600k, pretty simple again, your going to utilize the HT then get it, if not and your just into gaming then get the 2500k.

The caching really hasn't gotten any positive reviews
Now if you do some video encoding, getting a z68 board with the lucid virtu technology would make it worthwhile ..
So far newegg pricing puts the z68 boards right on par with the p67, keep in mind the p67 boards are probably going to be phased out and quickly swept under the rug.
