If we can trust the latest wave of stories from the rumor mill, Intel's 32-nm Clarkdale processors will launch just a month and a half from now. Meanwhile, motherboard makers are putting the finishing touches on motherboards designed to accommodate those processors.
One of those boards is the Asus P7H57D-V EVO, and we've gotten our hands on a whole gallery of photos depicting it from every angle. Just like today's P55 offerings, the board has a socket for an LGA1156 CPU. Unlike those offerings, however, the P7H57D-V EVO features an H57 chipset and a batch of display outputs connected to the processor socket—VGA, DVI, and HDMI.
The display outputs will hook up to Clarkdale's built-in graphics core, which will sit on the same package as the two 32-nm processor cores. Intel will stick the GPU on the same die as the processor's dual-channel DDR3 memory controller, but the CPU cores will reside on a separate piece of silicon.
Clarkdale peculiarities aside, the P7H57D-V EVO looks to have two physical PCI Express x16 slots, 6Gbps Serial ATA, USB 3.0, FireWire, and heatsinks on its power regulation circuitry. Similarly to the P55, the H57 chipset looks like a single-chip affair located in the south-bridge area.
