Performance Award for GA-H67N-USB3-B3 from Hardware Heaven

"(...) Never have we seen such a thorough suite of applications on a mini-ITX board and one of the most interesting features is the ability to tweak our board using CloudOC from any web enabled device such as a phone or tablet.(...)

What we learn here is that the memory bandwidth is great on the H67 board with full dual channel speed available, just as it is on a full size ATX board. The SATA 3 speeds are also very good, offering top end performance from our Vertex 3 drive and USB 3.0 performance also matches the speeds we see on a standard desktop system.(...)

The power of the Intel CPUs and the Gigabyte motherboard allow us to have full size desktop performance from a mini-ITX system.(...)

H67N-USB3-B3 (...) features Gigabyte's usual high level of build quality, including the B3 revision chipset and NEC/Renesas USB 3.0 controller. As well as including features such as these and support for the latest 1155 CPUs we also get a fully featured BIOS and thorough software suite which exceeds our expectations for a mini-ITX board.(...)

In terms of performance we were hugely impressed by the H67N-USB3-B3. Essentially it gives us the full performance of the Sandy Bridge platform on a mini-ITX board. Regardless of the components we have thrown at it during testing and the tests run on each the board performed flawlessly.(...)

Gigabyte have also priced the H67N-USB-B3 at a competitive level and in the UK especially it offers great value at the moment. For £180 (£90 each) we can start a great H67/i3 build which is ideal.(...)"

ZX-S & C64 are still my favourites ;-)

Well I would have to go along with that in general although I have the non B3 version of the board. I have bneen very impressed with it so far and don't expect any change when I have it swapped to the B3. They certainly perform excellently and I would be hard pressed to find fault with the board.  ;D
