This is false. P67 8x/8x will not hurt performance. P67 is perfect for SLI or crossfire.

acculy x8 does hurt just not much only like 5 fps

1366 = x58. Yes it is widely used but if you are an overclocker you should get the P67, if you are making an HTPC you can go H67. The P67's can use the overclockable K chips such as the i7 2600k. Consensus seems to be that gamers can get away with using the i5 2500k and get the same in game performance as the i7 2600k because games don't program for hyperthreading. P67's can do one PCIe lane at 16x or two at 8x 8x. This is fine for single gpu cards. If you plan on going triple card gaming or using a 6990 tri sli with a 6970 then you need to get a board with an nf200 chip. The main benefit for OCNers of the Z68 is SSD caching.

i can't quite understand the differences of the chipsets now.
1366 is the socket, basically the clamp that holds the cpu down, and 1366 is the number of pins that mach up with the pads on the bottom of the CPU so it can communicate with the ccomputer.


here are those pins.

now x58, p67, and h67 are the chipsets which is how the cpu communicates with the computer.

Each chipset provides certain features:
x58 has 36 PCIe lanes for multi-GPU configurations, and is only compatible with the LGA1366 socket (lga stands for land grid array, which simply means the pins are actually flat gold pads arranged in a gridded array

p67 enables processor overclocking in the sandy bridge k-series cpus (i5-2500k, i7-2600k) and is only compatible with the LGA1155 socket

h67 enables on-die processor GPU, and allows for overclocking of it, and also is only compatible with the LGA1155 socket

I would reccomend staying away from the older LGA1556 processors since sandy bridge is so much faster. This socket has chipsets such as p55 and h55.

But when will the Z68 be released? Would it be more expensive?

Who uses the x58 mobos?

LGA1366 uses X58.

Better to get LGA 1155 with a mobo in your price range

My question was "who" uses X58, I meant the type of people who uses it? Enthusiasts, business people, etc.?

Probably not a huge reason to go with x58 anymore unless you are building a gulftown or high end xeon rig.

x58 is definintely for high-end enthusiasts. Its sole purpose now that Sandy Bridge is out is for those who want to do something crazy like 4-way sli and use hexa-core processors from intel.

As stated above, Nvidia's nf200 pretty much solves LGA1155 and LGA1156 's deficit of PCIe Lanes.
