[Bit-tech] MSI Z68A-GD80 preview - Page 2

post #11 of 15
Yeah, I understand that Z68 allows one to both overclock the GPU and use the on board GPU. But where did this guy get the idea that Z68 allows BCLK overclocking? I've seen a couple other people make the same claim in this forum and every time it just seems to arise out of thin air!

Barring BCLK adjustments, what else could possibly improve overclocking on the new Z68 motherboards. Isn't it pretty much all about the actual CPU at this point?

Nah, the x79 (SB-E/SB-EX) in Nov/Dec will allow BCLK adjustments.
Z68 just combines p67/h67 cpu/gpu OCing and SSD caching.

Nice, now if only a microATX version for my SFF build.

I believe you mean X79? Late winter/early spring of 2012 appears to be more realistic.

Nov/Dec is the typical Intel Q4 launch date. Just as the Q4 08 i7 920 came out Nov 17 as will SB-E around the same time.

Early Spring 2012 is the Ivy-Bridge Q1 release accompanied with a new chipset just as Jan of this year was the SB Q1 release.
