Conclusions and Total System Power Draw

PCSTATS measures total system power draw (watts) with the aid of an Extech 380803 AC Power Analyzer and A-PFC compliant Seasonic SS-760KM power supply. The meter is placed between the 120V AC outlet and the PC power supply and the computer stressed. Total system power draw is recorded and compared to the PC's idle state.

The ASUS P8P67 Pro system draws 113W while idle at the desktop. Under 100% CPU load conditions with Prime95, total system power draw jumps to 157W. 3DMark06 pushes power draw to a peak of 272W with a Geforce GTX470 installed.

Conclusions: ASUS P67 Motherboard

The ASUS P8P67 Pro motherboard is a good platform to build a nice gaming or run-of-the-mill computer system with. Regardless of the new advances in chipsets since the emergence of the Intel P67 chipset, it has to be said that the P67 still offers a lot of value. Considering that value, a board like the P8P67 Pro proves itself to be an economical way of assembling an Intel LGA1155 PC that competes with Intel Z68 platforms in the benchmarks. The reason is simple, both chipsets are essentially the same core logic.

If you plan on installing a good graphics card, you can save money with an Intel P67 based motherboard over a more expensive Z68 motherboard. It's as simple as that.

Compared to newer Intel Z68 motherboards, an Intel P67 platform also affords much the same SLI/Crossfire multi-videocard capability. If you're a gamer who likes to overclock, there's really no need to spend more cash on an Intel Z68 platform with onboard integrated graphics features you won't be using, is there?

Bottom line, let the previous couple pages of application benchmarks serve as a reminder that newer chipset model numbers don't always mean better performance figures. Features are easy to add, but raw processing performance is what a computer draws on every day of the week.

Although the ASUS P8P67 Pro is perhaps a little too overclocking focused and rough around the edges in some respects, not to mention strewn with excessive marketing names for features a general PC user will find of little substance.... the P8P67 Pro has the right features where it counts. In this day and age, a good amount of USB 3.0 is key. The same can be said for SATA III ports. Users with smart phones will certainly appreciate the integrated Bluetooth capability. To sum up, although the ASUS P8P67 Pro made a very bad initial impression with us on the marketing side, on the whole it is a nice board and well worth your consideration. Recommended.
