TechSpot: Intel P67 Motherboard 5-Way Shootout

Chipset delays aside, Sandy Bridge has been one of the most anticipated and impressive releases we've seen from Intel in recent years. The first wave of processors have demonstrated superior efficiency as they swept aside considerably more expensive processors of previous generations, while consuming even less power. The Core i5 2500K and Core i7 2600K models have also delivered effortless overclocking potential without going for excessive price premiums.

For those building a new high-end rig from the ground up, the LGA1155 platform looks like the way to go and there are already quite a few exciting new P67 motherboards to choose from. Read on as TechSpot checks out the Asrock P67 Extreme6, Asus P8P67 Deluxe, ECS P67H2-A2, Gigabyte P67A-UD7 and MSI P67A-GD55.

"Sandy Bridge has been one of the most anticipated and impressive releases we've seen from Intel in recent years"
bull****. You are paying the "evolution", again and again.

Those motherboards are not even in the same category... the highest end one costs more than twice as much as the cheapest one.

I also don't think it's entirely fair to test a P67A-UD7 against those boards. When you highlight those features such as NF200 in providing the most PCIe lanes, for one thing, it doesn't make a significant difference, secondly, the ASUS P8P67 WS Revolution does offer that chip in question, but not the P8P67 Deluxe. The P8P67 Deluxe is quite cheap for what you get -- and the P8P67 WS Revolution is the same price as the P67A-UD5, which is actually one step below the P67A-UD7. I actually own both boards and have used both for a month in a row and I would have to say that the P8P67 WS Revolution is the UNQUESTIONABLE winner in performance, features, and experience. Is it better than the P67A-UD7? I don't have it, but it probably is.
