Summary: The ratings awarded to a product are derived from a number of tests and calculations, keeping certain important factors in mind. These factors consist of features, performance, quality and value for money. In case of software and some other categories, build quality might be replaced with ease of use or ease of installation.

Conclusion: The last great feature of the Z68 I want to touch on is the SSD caching in the form of Intel’s Smart Response Technology. Basically ISRT allows you to add an SSD and use it as a cache for your existing HDD. ISRT only works in RAID though, not AHCI or IDE, so you’ll have to reinstall Windows 7 on your HDD and set it up with RAID, unless you want to be greeted by BSOD galore.
Excerpt: Intel flexed its technology muscles last week by formally unveiling some nifty next-generation transistor technology , 3D Tri-Gate, which is designed to increase processor performance while reducing power - a rather neat party trick that ensures the chip giant can explore and harvest the benefits of moving down to 22nm and 14nm process nodes.
TEST: Asus P8Z68-V Pro - Intel Core-plattformen enda bedre
25 May 2011
Excerpt: Intels Sandy Bridge-plattform ble lansert rett etter nyttår – i form av andregenerasjons Core i3-, i5- og i7-prosessorer, samt brikkesettene H67 og P67. Forskjellene mellom de to brikkesettene er at H67 gir mulighet for å utnytte prosessorenes integrerte grafikkprosessor, mens P67 rettes mot dem skal ha dedikert grafikkort.
Pros: Meget god funksjonalitet. God ytelse. God programvare.
