P55 Motherboard Roundup Dec 2009
Back in September Intel released the Core i5-750 and i7-870 along with their latest midrange chipset, the P55. At launch we were very impressed by the excellent value for money offered by the i5-750, especially when Turbo Boost is enabled and there was no shortage of P55 boards to combine with it. Since then Gigabyte and Asus have been expanding their P55 range and between them they have now 36 different models for users to choose from.
To assist in making that decision we have three of these boards on our test bench today that each have their own unique selling points from high quality components to excellent overclocking potential and even USB 3 and SATA 6GB/s compatibility. We will be putting each through a selection of real world tests to find out which offers the best performance, features and value.
