ASRock Z68 Extreme 4 Gen 3 vs. ASRock P67 Extreme 6


Okay, I am getting a new mobo, and I don't know what one is better for the money. I have heard great things about both of these boards, but I dont know if the Extreme 6 is better because is it P67 not Z68. What would be the best choice?

Z68 is newer and offers features such as Intel Rapid Storage Technology, the ability to overclock AND use the onboard GPU of CPU.

Personally, I wouldnt be upgrading to anything with what you have? Whats the point?

Because I still have the faulty sata ports, never sent it in the get the 3.0 revision. So I want to upgrade and send this one. Then I plan on selling it once it gets back from MSI.

I believe EarthDog meant Z68 has SRT over the P67, not RST. Both P67 and Z68 have RST.

SRT = Smart Response Technology (SSD Caching for a HDD)
RST = Rapid Storage Technology (Intel's RAID, previously on the ICH10R)

If you don't want the SSD caching or have the ability to use the iGPU, then there's not really a difference.

Intel was a jerk to use such confusing names as SRT and RST.
