Q2 2011 launch


Intel is preparing three new chipsets, where the dominant one comes with a H67 name. The P67 is also quite spec'ed up but the H61 is a more modest and at the same time the cheapest version.


The processors of choice are Sandy Bridge LGA 1155 and they should launch in Q1 2011. The board supports 1x16 PCIe lanes as well as ten USB 2.0 ports. It doesn’t support Intel Rapid Storage technology but comes with Raid 0,1,5 and 10 and Intel Remote PC Assist technology.

The total number of SATA 2.0 ports is 4 and this chipset won’t bring SATA 3.0 support. It has six PCIe 2.0 lanes and it doesn’t come with any PCI slots.

The launch date of this chipset is in Q2 2011, a month after its higher spec'ed brother H67 launches.
