Reasons not to buy a z68
Jun 23, 2011, 6:47 PM
Is there any reason not to buy a z68 except for cost? I ask because I thought I read a post here a few days ago about some performance loss compared to the p67?

In one of the latest System Builder stories (probably the $2000), Tom's said that they didn't find a loss of performance.

It depends on the MOBO, configurations, GPUs, etc ->
The Z68 does a decent job of turning-off shared bandwidth from the discrete and iGPU.

Suggest you read this review. I think it gives compelling reasons not to buy Z68 at this time. I posted my reasons on another thread.

If you are going to be buying a powerful graphics card, and if you are likely to use a decent size SSD for your boot drive, then Z68 is probably not the chipset for you, at least for now.
