Z77 vs P67

I currently have a P67 Sabertooth which is working nicely (stable 4.6GHz OC on an i2600k - it does go higher but 4.6 seems quick enough).

Would upgrading to one of the Z77 boards give me any improvements in graphic speeds or SATA speeds?

I don't seem to be able to find any direct comparisons using the same GPU or SSD for benchmark comparisons.

Are the SATA3 controllers on the Z77 boards any quicker?

Are the graphics abilities improved (GTX 670)?

Well I can honestly say SATA3 speeds are no faster but are certainly more stable (non Intel) since they no longer use the flaky Marvell controllers.

Couldn't comment on GPU speeds as like you I have a 2600K and they don't support PCIe3 even on a Z77 board.

Lastly you have what is probably the finest P67 board ever manufactured (I had one to lol), I only changed as I was downsizing to MITX

Hope that helps some...

Unless you are going to go ivy it's more like bug fixes and some speed enhancements. With ivy you get better power ratios and speed, & PCI-e 3 but it will only help with a new GPU.

Although the Z77 does seem more solid.

Not worth the cost. If you were downsizing or upsizing then it would be a good opportunity to buy z77, but just swapping it for the sake of it? Don't bother. I have a P8P67 Evo and the only reason I am considering changing is because my 800D case is MASSIVE and I want a smaller rig.

But for what I would get for the motherboard if i sold it I would just keep it as a spare.

To be honest it is not worth the upgrade, it is mostly theoretical performance increases you get, in real world testing though its almost non-existent.

You won't see any performance gain Mark, trust me on that one; you've already got what is the finest P67 board ever produced
