Intel Z68 chipset to launch May 8

Written by Fudzilla staff


Commemorating VE Day
Intel’s new Z68 chipset is set to debut on May 8, just in time to commemorate VE Day.

The new chipset is designed with high-end Sandy Bridge processors in mind and it will deliver a few features lacking on P67 and H67 products.

The Z68 should deliver improved overclocking performance, as well as support for RST SSD caching and a host of other features geared towards the premium markets.

Basically, Z68 will be the chipset of choice for Sandy Bridge processors and best of all, it shouldn’t end up much pricier than existing 67-series boards.

If Z68 can guarantee 5Ghz clock on the 2600k and some fairly priced NF200 equipped mobos come along, then I'll think about it!

No one is going to buy this with Bulldozer just around the corning. Whether BD is better or not people will wait and see just to be sure they get the best bang per buck.

Plus if you have waited for BD then why not wait to see what LGA-2011 has to offer?

If you have managed to wait for LGA-2011 then Ivy Bridge is just around the corner with 22nm process and PCi Ex 3.0!

I am sure intel will do fine.

Its win-win really for the consumer, depending on Bulldozer's performance, there is more competition, and we all know that should lead to lower prices for all.

I lol'ed for nearly all day reading such nonsence LOL
You have no clue then about IT whatsoever - many enthusiasts exactly waiting Z68 to go with Sandy,at least try read some forums before posting such BS
Best bang/buck? amd 1100t cost more than 2500K,yet its got owned in 99.99% tests,thats amd's bang/buck? Dont have wet dreams about amd Shovel coming even close to Sandy - it will business as usual,and they at the best will compete with Intels previous i5,i7.Which i highly doubt knowing amd.At this time some OEM already should have leaked some benches,we see nothing,this just shows how badly amd lagging behind Intel LOL

BS, for Ivy u have to wait almost 1 year(q1/q2 2012), but It make sense to wait for BD, I only hope it's not going to be just another low cost/lost performance crap

My reasoning was that BD is about 1Q away, LGA-2011 is about another quarter after that and Ivy Bridge will be about another 1-2 quarters after that but this will depend on how good BD is, Intel can release IV whenever they want.

@ Drac,

Glad i could amuse. Although i bet people like you were laughing before Athlon 64, you had to swallow your pride on release day for that didn't you!

If you read what i said i am not some blind fanboy like you seem to be, i merely said it would make sense to wait just a few weeks 'incase' AMD pull a great chip out of the hat.

Time will tell but if nothing more it might bring your precious SB prices down.

Firstly, we have NO.NADA.NONE accurate or trustworthy example of what Bulldozer performance is actually supposed to be. There are some "leaked" benchmarks of the Interlagos/Zambezi chips but they are not confirmed nor written with any standard. Even if you did decide to believe those, they are mostly done on Linux, server-based systems. This means basically squat for consumer based PC users. I'm excited to see what Bulldozer can do, but lets be rational.

Now, lets celebrate Sandy Bridge for what it is. A great leap in processor tech that will drive the market to create even greater processors. The performance of Sandy Bridge is a large step up from other consumer based processors and Ivy Bridge is supposed to be 20% and support LGA 1155. Celebrate that we have choice!

SB prices are fantastic. The Core i5 2400 out performs the Phenom 2 X6 1090T and is cheaper. Get your head on straight. The 2600K is around $320, can't get a better price/performance ratio than that.
