Default Intel Releases Z68 Chipset; Features SSD Smart Response Technology

In a launch that should come as surprise to no one, Intel has taken the veil off of its Z68 Express chipset. Though it might seem a bit odd to release a follow-up to P67 so soon (not even counting the two months that no boards were even available), Z68 is to become the higher-tier chipset; one that's a bit more expensive than P67, and offers a couple of niche features for those who want them.

Read the rest of our post and then discuss it here!
Intel Core i7-3960X, GIGABYTE G1.Assassin 2, Kingston 16GB DDR3-2133, NVIDIA GeForce GTX 770 2GB
Kingston HyperX 3K 240GB SSD (OS, Apps), WD VR 1TB (Games), Corsair 1000HX, Corsair H70 Cooler
Corsair 800D, Dell 2408WFP 24", ASUS Xonar Essence STX, Gentoo (KDE 4.11. 3.12 Kernel)

After putting in some time with the Z68X-UD5 board that is being used in our upcoming disk caching article, the answer is yes. And no. I haven't had a chance to check out Quick Sync yet but hope to in the next few days along with GIGABYTE's new Touch BIOS.

Everybody will just have to wait, read and decide for themselves.

Intel i5 3570K, MSI Z77Z-GD55, 4x2GB Kingston Genesis 2133mhz, 120GB Mushkin Chronos SSD, 1TB Western Digital Caviar Blue, Intel 210 cache drive, MSI 7850 Power Edition OC, Corsair H100, Silverstone Strider 750w Gold, Killer2100 NIC, Corsair 600T SE White, LG W2242, ROCCAT Kone+, Isku & Kave, 3TB Seagate Backup+, 200GB Western Digital Scorpio Black external drive
