ASRock P67 Pro3
When it comes to Intel's Sandy Bridge, lately we have been looking a lot at the Linux graphics performance with the H67 chipset as it has been an interesting journey but now at least the OpenGL performance is good and VA-API video acceleration is working. Now that the B3-stepping Cougar Point motherboards are beginning to ship that address the original SATA issues for this chipset that led to a recall, we are back to looking at this magical CPU, the supported motherboards, and its overall Linux performance. In this review we are taking a Linux look at the ASRock P67 Pro3.
The ASRock P67 Pro3 is a mid-range Sandy Bridge motherboard that costs less than $150 USD but offers all of the core functionalities for the P67 Chipset plus extras like an eSATA 3.0 connector, high-quality capacitors, extra cooling options, and easy overclocking support.
Included with ASRock's P67 ATX motherboard was the motherboard manual, a separate UEFI setup guide, I/O panel, two Serial ATA cables, and Windows software CD. This is the usual light quantity of accessories that accompany most ASRock motherboards to avoid inflating the price with often useless extras. The P67 Pro3 is targeted as one of their mid-range Sandy Bridge desktop offerings.
