The Test

In recent times, choosing a motherboard cannot be completely determined by a Winstone score. Now, many boards come within one Winstone point of each other and therefore the need to benchmark boards against each other falls. Therefore you shouldn't base your decision entirely on the benchmarks you see here, but also on the technical features and advantages of this particular board, seeing as that will probably make the greatest difference in your overall experience.

The HOT-567 has a great feature set unfortunately the performance of the motherboard isn't too incredibly competitive. 

 


The Final Decision

The HOT-567 is the closest to a true successor to the HOT-565/569, unfortunately that succession doesn't translate into the performance category which makes the HOT-567 much less of a great buy and more of an average purchase.   The choice is up to you, depending on what type of user you are.
