Too Many Chipsets? The Differences Between Motherboards
Have you ever tried to figure out the minuscule differences in motherboard chipsets and had a really hard time finding the information you wanted? I believed that when I started this endeavor, I’d be pulling a few articles up, grabbing the info I wanted, and putting it together in my own chart, easy-peasy. Turned out that several hours later, I was still only about 85% certain I had gathered all the correct information.
Still, I’ve put all my efforts into a video to share with you below. Not only do we take a look at the various features built in to AMD and Intel chipsets, but we also determine if there’s a good reason to have as many releases as there are. Check out the video below to see charts and explanations of all the info I found. Also, if you just want to see the charts, you can go directly to these timestamps to see some direct comparisons.
~2:05 for category explanations, ~3:03 for AMD chipsets, ~6:25 for Intel Professional chipsets, ~7:45 for Intel Enthusiast chipsets, ~10:00 for full comparison
