A sneak peek at a Gigabyte P55 motherboard


— 11:58 AM on July 14, 2009

First spotted at Computex last month, Gigabyte's GA-EP55-UD4P has made its way to the Benchmarking Sweatshop. Although we can't say much about the board just yet, we snapped some nudies for your viewing pleasure:


Yep, looks like a Gigabyte mobo

Gigabyte says a whopping 24 power phases will feed the CPU socket on one of its P55 boards

Lynnfield's new LGA1156 socket shows its pins

Despite the presence of next-gen SATA 6Gbps ports, you still get an IDE port

Seven expansion slots with plenty of PCI and PCI Express connectivity

The port cluster is positively packed with plenty of everything

Gigabyte is prepping no fewer than five P55-based motherboards for Lynnfield's launch. All will support CrossFire and SLI, carry Dolby Home Theater certification, and feature auxiliary SATA controllers and dual GigE chips. Only the GA-EP55-UD6 is slated to sport Gigabyte's fancy new 24-phase power solution, though.
