Intel Z68 chipshet – intel latest chipset for Sandy Bridge
Success of the Intel processor that uses the latest technology in both desktop and notebook PC line immediately followed by the presence of an Intel chipset Z68. Intel Chipset Z68 comes out in May of 2011 is still targeting the consumer or user computer enthusiasts in the PC Desktop. Chipset Intel socket 1155 Z68 still using the exact same chipset mainboard with H67, H61, P61, and P67. This chipset released by Intel to provide a means for fans to be more flexible overclocking overclock on Sandy Bridge platform.
Intel Z68 also gives the possibility for overclocking enthusiasts to overclock the graphics card on the chip on an Intel Core or Intel Core i3 i5, earlier if you want to do overclocking the graphics card can only be done on the mainboard chipset with H61 or H67. To do overclocking processor and memory can only be done on the mainboard chipset P61 or P67, while both these chipsets do not support the use onchip graphics card on Intel Core or Intel Core i5 i3. Well, the solution from Intel is making Intel chipsets Z68, so overclocking the graphics card (GPU) onchip on processor and CPU on the same processor can be done at once.
Z68 Intel chipsets that can be said to be the top of the line of Sandy Bridge platform, the chipset is expected to give satisfaction for Intel enthusiasts for its performance is presented by Intel’s Sandy Bridge. One feature that is trying to be bridged by the platform at the Intel chipset is active QuickSync Z68, which is a feature of Intel that can accelerate video decoding process by using the GPU on an Intel processor. Previously if we install a separate graphics card on the mainboard of Intel P67, P61, H67, and H61, QuickSync function will stop automatically and will only work when the GPU on an Intel processor that is used only one. Might actually be done when using a mainboard with Intel chipset H67, when going to perform video processing on the graphics card slot PCI-Ex is removed first, then when going to play games or watch full HD graphics card is plugged in again.
The solution may be cheaper, but from the use of very cumbersome, and there is likely to cause damage to the graphics card that is often dismantled / tide will occur more quickly. QuickSync feature can be reactivated on the mainboard with Intel chipset Z68 with the help of a software called Virtu. This software is made by the company Lucid, who had previously made a chipset that is able to integrate the use of AMD and Nvidia graphics card on MSI mainboard.
Not to stop here alone, on an Intel chipset Z68 also implemented a technology called the Smart Response Technology (SRT), which is a technology that utilizes SSD Caching, which is commonly used on server computers. This technology uses a cache on the SSD to improve computer performance. If you only use a large capacity SSD on your computer, of course not a problem, but if you still use regular hard drive and want to enjoy the speed of the SSD on your computer, this technology will be very useful. Theory of the Intel Smart Response Technology allows you to use a small-capacity SSD (relatively cheap) to serve as a cache data so the system can work quickly, and uses the capacity of HDD (Hard Disk Drive) for storing data. The way these applications can run it pretty easy, when you’ve put pieces of SSD and HDD on the system, you only need to install software Intel Rapid Storage Technology (IRST) and then select the option ‘Enable Acceleration “.
Although just launched, this technology has been absorbed by some world famous manufacturers with their latest products with Intel chipset Z68. MSI issued a series of intel z68 chipset in MSI Z68A-GD 55, MSI GD-65 Z68A, and MSI Z68A-GD 80, then emerged with a Gigabyte series, Gigabyte GA-Z68X-UD7-B3, and asus with ASUS P8Z68 Pro-V, and not miss too Asrock with Asrock Z68 series Extreme4, PRO3 Z68, and Z68 PRO3-M. All these manufacturers offer a variety of advantages and differences that exist on the mainboard features of their products are. Let’s wait no more, enjoy technology and advanced features on this Z68 Intel mainboard.
