Intel chipset H410 vs H510: the low-end hardly undergoes any changes

The mainstream range tightens

There are four chipsets that we will have available and as such, the options are more varied and we will have to highlight more sections. Starting with the obviousness that here we do have two RAM channels available for installation and with it the 128 GB that Intel promised at the time, the reality is that the 500 series will get one more improvement compared to the 400 in this section.

And this is nothing more than the unlocked support for the RAM memory, which will be done through BIOS and logically the boards with B560 and H570 should cost a little more expensive than their counterparts in the 400 series. And here the differences begin to arrive since the 500 series has interesting details, such as USB 3.2 Gen 2 and most of these.

In counterpoint, B560 has fewer PCIe lanes available than its counterpart (16 vs 12), so the minor differences are between H470 and H570 really, since everything is based on the latter two in the USB, the overclocking to RAM and the having up to 16 direct lines for PCIe 3.0, which is always appreciated.

The enthusiast range also undergoes little change

The older brothers are really at odds with each other to see who dominates the other. And it is that the fight between Z490 and Z590 is fierce, since the two nail almost all the specifications. Among the changes, it should be noted that Intel has wanted to make the Z590 more versatile by giving it a greater configuration in the PCI Express, which will be great if you want to make a RAID 0 of NVMe SSD for example.

But it is that saving this detail that for many may be important, the only improvement is that Intel has provided its new top-of-the-range chipset with a configuration of three USB 3.2 Gen 2 × 2 at 20 Gbps, something that each manufacturer will have to see. whether it finally includes it or not.

Here it is not possible to generalize, because it is something that has a high cost and lower efficiency, so the AIBs will decide whether to finally include it in their top-of-the-range models.

Considering the data, which chipset should we choose for our new PC?
