The Z87M had an IR3567B. (Sin's list only had the EATX version)

That makes it closer to the Z97M having an IR, though it's still uncertain, the chokes are 8 so it could be an 4*2 and it's generally unconfirmed.

Was looking forward a thread like this. Thanks.

Are there really some important differences between Intersil and IR? And also between nxp lfpak mosfets and powerpaks (onsemi, renesas)?

It's weird to see that MSI is now using ISL instead of IR on their higher end boards.

I'm also wondering about the rating of the capacitors they are using.

Sin's Hardware on Analog VS Digital controllers http://sinhardware.com/index.php/vrm-articles/113-digital-vs-analog-pwms/74-analog-vs-digital-pwms

My main impression is that MOSFETs are best to have the highest current possible (A) but on the lowest dissipation power (W) possible.
The latter makes them more efficient and easier to cool.

e.g. the best Gigabytes have 40A/10.5W MOSFETs which is pretty good, a 40A/6.5W would be better and a pair of 79A/55W, 100A/69W would be usually worse. I'm sure it's not set in stone based on one part, it's about the whole package of the VRM.

Same, I ordered an MSI Z97 MPOWER (Not the MAX AC), but I'm very doubtful of keeping it and might go for an Z97X-OC or VII Hero. I'm not really fond of the change from 8+8 to 6+6 and changing from full digital to digital / analog. How much of an downgrade is it actually from Z87 MPOWER's 8+8 FULL digital phase design or is it actually better?

IR3535 driver on the backside of the ASUS Z97 Deluxe, same driver with the Sabertooth Z97.
