Intel H670, B660 and H610 Chipset Analysis and Motherboard Roundup

Intel has launched three new 600-series chipsets for its 12th Generation Alder Lake processors. The latest wave of H670, B660, and H610 motherboards arrive in tandem with Intel’s recently announced non-K series Alder Lake processors and cater to consumers that don’t necessarily need all the bells and whistles that the more expensive Z690 motherboards offer.

Processor overclocking is exclusive to the premium Z690 chipset. On the other hand, memory overclocking is available to Z690, H670, and B660 chipsets. The trio of chipsets supports up to two DIMM per channel. Meanwhile, the H610 chipset is stuck with Intel’s official supported data rates, DDR5-4800 for DDR5 and DDR4-3200 for DDR4. The H610 is the only chipset limited to a single DIMM per channel.
