Intel Ivy Bridge Chipsets
As we mentioned on the second page we've got a number of new chipsets bought to the table and below you can see the main chipset SKUs with the Z77 being the Full Featured Performance version. Below that we've got the Z75 which is the Mainstream Performance offering and below that the H77 which is the Mainstream Consumer chipset.
Moving to the right side of the table we've got the Small / Medium Business chipset, the B75 and more corporate chipsets sitting above that in the Q75 and Q77. Some of the main differences are the PCIe configuration, legacy PCI support and the amount of SATA III ports.
Looking above we can see the main difference between the new 7 series chipset and older 6 series one. There's not a huge difference between them, but there are a few changes to note. Four native USB 3.0 ports is one, more display ports along with upgraded manageability, FW and iRST support.
Below we've got the extended block diagram for the Z77 chipset which gives us a good run-down of what's on offer from both the CPU itself and motherboard GPU. The CPU gives us PCIe 3.0 support, Thunderbolt on select motherboards and dual channel DDR3 up to 1600MHz DDR.
As for the chipset we've got a lot of the features that we've just mentioned including three independent display support, four USB 3.0, 10 USB 2.0, gigabit networking, eight PCIe 2.0 and six SATA ports to name some of the main features.
