P67 Sandy Bridge Gaming Performance Analysis

We look at the new P67 platform with an MSI GTX 580 and compare it to both X58 and P55.

Manufacturer: Intel





We've taken a bit of a different approach to an Intel launch this time around. While we generally get our motherboard / CPU guy to take care of any kind of CPU / Chipset launch, we've added something extra into the mix.


Moving away from things like encoding times and boring synthetic bandwidth numbers, we get stuck into the fun stuff; games! - Using our normal video card benchmark suite which covers everything form 3DMark 11 too Direct X 11 games, we're going to find out, as a gamer, if this is a platform you should be eyeing off.


We've got the three major platforms on offer here today which of course include the P67 one, P55 which from today onward has become almost redundant, and still the top dog for the time being, the X58.


We won't go into any more detail, though, and instead just check out the test systems in a bit more detail on the next page. Before you jump forward, though, you might want to firstly check our initial piece covering some of the new CPUs that are launching with the new P67 chipset.
