Sapphire give Intel's Z68 the Pure Platinum treatment

Early video sighting prior to Aug 18 launch

Since Sapphire jumped on the Intel chipset wagon early this year producing boards of their own under the Pure series, we've reviewed several models from the company and been impressed overall. With each consecutive iteration in the lineup, Sapphire is doing a little more tweaking and fine tuning to give a more competitive enthusiast board to consumers.

We most recently checked out Sapphire's Pure Platinum A75 offering for the AMD Llano platform and had nothing but good things to say about it, and so the news today of an upcoming Z68 chipset offering under Sapphire's Pure Platinum lineup comes much welcomed and anticipated.


The folks at eTeknix have managed to catch a sighting of the board on video camera along with a couple shots of the boxing and board itself.

The Pure Platinum Z68 is scheduled for release on the 18th of August. We have a sample on the way ourselves and are looking forward to bringing you a full review around the time of launch, so stay tuned!
