Now that the Sandy Bridge CPU and chipset launch is officially out of the bag, we can at last complete our in-depth look at three P67 motherboards we previously teased for you earlier: the Gigabyte P67A-UD4, ASUS P8P67 Deluxe, and MSI P67A-GD65. This time we're able to bring you performance numbers for all three boards using the new Core i7 2600K CPU. See how well this first batch of P67 boards from trusted manufacturers play with the new Intel CPU architecture!

Thanks for the roundup. But I'm disappointed that you actually benchmarked the CPU instead of the mobos. How's about USB3 performance, power figures, fan profiles etc.
Bios coverage and all the pictures are suberb. Cheers

OMFG! 4.7GHz? That's superfantabulous. The fact that all 3 motherboards are close performers is probably a good thing. Many people just like certain brands, and I always hate having to pick one over the other just because one has an extra SATA port. Nice to know that performance-wise they are very similar.

I read the Sandy Bridge CPU roundup also. Very impressive numbers. I had a liquid-cooled i5 OC'd to almost 5GHz so I imagine that these boards will allow a new liquid-cooled i7 to do it easily. And looks like retail pricing will be competitive to AMD's high-end offerings.

Very nice reviews. I will go with ASUS board.

Can't wait
