Even though the Intel Z68 chipset is out there, motherboards based on the Intel P67 continue to be attractive options for systems based on Intel socket LGA1155 CPUs. In fact, according to ASUS, the sales of P67-based motherboards are still outperforming those of Z68-based products. ASUS offers a wide range of motherboards based on this chipset, and today we are going to take a look at the P8P67 PRO model, which is a top mid-range model (or entry high-end model, depending on your point of view).
With eight different P8P67 models out there, you must be wondering what the differences between them are. To help you out, we compiled a table showing the main differences between the ASUS P8P67 models. The Realtek ALC889 audio codec is better than the ALC892. The ALC887 audio codec has the same specs as the ALC892.
|P8P67 WS Revolution||P8P67 PRO||P8P67 LE||P8P67 EVO||P8P67 DELUXE||P8P67||P8P67-M||P8P67-M PRO|
|PCI Express x16 slots||Four||Three||Two||Three||Three||Two||Two||Three|
|USB 3.0 ports||Two||Four||Two||Four||Four||Four||Two||Two|
|Audio Codec||Realtek ALC889||Realtek ALC892||Realtek ALC892||Realtek ALC892||Realtek ALC889||Realtek ALC892||Realtek ALC887||Realtek ALC892|
