Intel DP67BG P67-Express Motherboard Review
Intel processors are the favorites of many enthusiasts, but their motherboards have typically been relegated to OEM and business use since most of them did not offer the features enthusiasts wanted. Intel has accompanied the introduction of the new Sandy Bridge CPUs and their supporting Cougar Point chipsets with a slew of new motherboards, some of which are targeted at the same enthusiast market served by the likes of ASUS, MSI, Gigabyte, and others. Benchmarks Reviews tests Intel's top-of-the-line P67 motherboard, the Intel DP67BG "Burrage", to see if it has what it takes to compete in this arena.
The P67 chipset is the "enthusiast" version of the Intel chipsets supporting the new Socket 1155 Sandy Bridge CPUs. (Intel is also introducing the H67, Q65, Q67, and B65 chipsets.) Since it's aimed at the enthusiast market, the P67 chipset does not support the integrated video features of the Sandy Bridge CPUs.
In this review I'll be examining the features of the Intel Desktop Board DP67BG, and testing its overclocking performance against two ASUS P67-Express series motherboards.
