The Intel Q67 chipset is targeted to the enterprise segment, i.e., desktop computers inside a big corporation. It is basically an H67 chipset with remote management and security technologies, allowing system and network administrators to manage and maintain the computers inside the company remotely, significantly lowering maintenance costs and decreasing the time required to fix and update the computers. Let’s see the features brought by the ASUS P8Q67-M DO/CSM motherboard.
The ASUS P8Q67-M DO/CSM supports vPro/AMT (Active Management Technology), which are Intel’s remote management technologies. ASUS has a version of this motherboard with an on-board TPM (Trusted Platform Module) chip, which encrypts data that is being handled by the computer, but this version isn’t sold in the US. Unfortunately, the product box incorrectly lists this feature as available on the portrayed motherboard.
This motherboard uses the microATX form factor, as you can see in Figure 1.
