Sapphire PURE P67However, our Sapphire sample today is not the PURE Black X58. No sir, this beauty is none other then the PURE Black P67! Based on Intel’s newest chipset, codenamed "Cougar Point", and is made for the Sandy Bridge processors. While it may not have the white PCB we liked so much about the PURE Crossfire 3200, the PURE Black P67 does offer something over most of the other P67 motherboard manufacturers: the LUCID Hydra technology onboard. If you haven't been up on the current board tech, what this does is gives the user a unique ability by being able to combine two different vendor's graphics accelerators and allow work in tandem for increased performance. Sapphire may not be the first company to the table with a P67-based board offering the Hydra chip, but they sure look to be doing  it better than the rest! So follow along as we put this beast through the gamut of tests and see if it passes with flying colors, or gets a Black mark...

asrock p67 fatal1tyYes, the ASRock Fatal1ty P67 Professional has a few features that we have not seen in a motherboard before, the most unique of which would be the Fatal1ty Mouse Port. What it does is allow you to adjust the designated USB port to whatever polling rate you wish, from 125 Hz to 1000Hz, which means you could even use the same polling of 500Hz that Fatal1ty uses. As this is just one of the many aspects of the motherboard, follow along and we will give you the full skinny on this new and exciting ASRock review.

p8h67M EVOOur next motherboard may be the one that ends up going into your SFF build or upgrade. The ASUS P8H67-M EVO reminds us of the P8P67 Pro but in a smaller package, and aimed at the audio/video buff instead of the performance hungry. It's those specs and black PCB, that when combined with blue and charcoal gray slots, really make a motherboard like this stand out.

asrock p67In order to begin we have our first board that is squarely targeted at the budget minded individual. The ASRock P67 Pro3 is the middle of the road motherboard, still offering quite a bit in the form of technology and features, but does not go over the top as to keep it at an affordable price point. Offering a powerful V8 + 2 power phase configuration, support for the unlocked multiplier 'K'-series processors, USB 3.0 and even SATA III. Anyone looking at the Pro3 will definitely get a solid motherboard with a whole lot of bells and whistles.

ASUS P8P67 ProThe first motherboard we will take a look at is the P8P67 Pro, which will be ASUS’ performance motherboard for users on a budget, or in other words a top-shelf mainstream board. In the lineup it falls just under the Deluxe but above the EVO. The P8P67 Pro holds a few similarities to the P7P55 Deluxe we reviewed here, looks is the only thing they have in common. The new board sports a new chipset for Intel's also new Sandy Bridge processor: the P67 North Bridge. So, what does that mean for the consumer? Well, the PCIe 2.0 is increased from 2.5GT/s to 5GT/s, meaning the USB 3.0 and SATA 6Gb/s connections will not hog up a lot of bandwidth since there is more to share. That is just the tip of the iceberg though, read on to find out more as we review this brand new ASUS motherboard utilizing Intel's brand new chipset and Core i5 2500K CPU!
