    No need to post further. This sums it up - when a new chipset is released and the highlight is in small letters "supports the M.2" interface and a huge picture of a hot new rear I/O shield no one including the user sees, you know the chipset is a big zzzzzzz.

    yes, funny how intel milks its chipsets even though Z87 will be compatible with Haswell refresh and looks like Broadwell too.
    Although I see their point, they need to make the market going..


    But what's funnier most tech sites claim Haswell refresh wont be compatible with Z87 nvm Broadwell..
    They all take that vr-zone slide for granted, while Intel PR/CEO said Broadwell will be compatible with existing systems Z87 and brand new systems Z97, fail :grin:
