Motherboard tier list: Q87 chipset

Q87 chipset:

The Q87 chipset is the most feature-rich business chipset and includes support Intel vPro, Identity Protection, Smart Response Technology, VT-d (Virtualization) and SIPP. It has six SATA 6Gb/s ports and six USB 3.0 ports in addition to the 14 USB 2.0 ports. This is the only chipset that will work if you need Intel vPro support.

Since there are not much features to compare, they have not been tiered.
