Re: AsRock Z77 Fatality "Performance" board?
No, the z68 was the combo of p67 and h67. The z77 is a refinement of the z68. The z68 was the one Intel should have put out from the outset.

I'm disappointed with QuickSync as you really have to have the right software to utilize it. I'm also disappointed with Virtu, which supposedly would allow one to Use QuickSync even if they had a dedicated video card. So far, my impression is that Virtu has been more hypoe than actual proven utility and functionality. If that makes sense.
