    H61 vs H67: Quick Sync and Clear Video?

    dhalbert

      I am trying to compare the feature sets of the H61 and H67 chipsets, and I am getting some conflicting indications about the video technology supported.

       

      I know the H61 does not have 6Gb SATA, has fewer USB ports, and fewer PCIe ports. My confusion is about Clear Video and Quick Sync.

       

      This Intel page, comparing the H61 and H67 chipsets, says the H61 does have Clear Video. However, this page, which compares Intel H61 and H67 motherboards, indicates that the Intel H61 motherboards do not have Clear Video. Quick Sync is not mentioned for either chipset. I thought I had found an intel.com page that says Quick Sync is not supported on H61, but I haven't been able to find it again.

       

      By comparison, this ASRock H61 motherboard says it does Clear Video and Quick Sync. This Asus H61 motherboard and the Gigabyte one mention Quick Sync but not Clear VIdeo.

       

      So I'm pretty confused. What is the definitive answer (and how can I know it's definitive?!)?

          Some partial closure on this: Apparently the H61 vs H67 comparison chart I linked to above used to be wrong: it used to say Clear Video was not supported on H61. I have no explanation for the Intel motherboard listings. There are several posts at avsforum.com which say that there was misinformation on H61 at first.
