GIGABYTE GA-H57M-USB3 DRIVER DOWNLOAD

Why do you really want to overclock a dual-core CPU to such an extent, when you’re relying on integrated graphics for the visual goodies? In terms of stock performance alone, there’s absolutely no difference between the H55 and H57 boards. Sure, you’ll have to pick up a dedicated GPU to go along with it, but if you were satisfied enough with integrated graphics then you don’t need to break the bank looking for one. The higher-end boards such as this come with a couple of the new USB 3. Not content with confusing the hell out of everyone with the new naming conventions for its Core i processors, Intel has thrown another 5-series chipset into the equation to make its motherboards just as obfuscated.

And if you absolutely, positively have to have USB 3. But just as we had the G4x chipsets, we’ve now got the H5x series. The H merely denotes that these chipsets are completely compatible with Intel’s latest Clarkdale chips that have the integrated graphics processors on-die.

But still we struggle to see the point. A quick look at the power usage and temperature readings, however, and the difference becomes clearer. Our Verdict A decent board, but offers limited extras over the equivalent, cheaper H55s.

Not content with confusing the hell out of everyone with the new naming conventions for its Core i processors, Intel has thrown another 5-series chipset into the equation to make its motherboards just as obfuscated. First we had the P55 chipset, and that was fine β€” just a Nehalem-based revision of the P35 and P45 motherboards.

With so little real-world difference between the two H5x chipsets, it does make sense to go for the lower-end part.
