EVGA's P55 FTW gets detailed

Triple BIOS for enthusiasts

The guys from Anandtech.com managed to get their hands on EVGA's P55 crown jewel, the EVGA P55 FTW, and snapped quite a few photos of the new board.

In addition to the 12-phase power design, quite a decent looking layout and tightly packed rear panel, the three on board BIOS chips are something that overclockers should certainly found useful. The BIOS chips selection is controlled by a simple three-position slider switch.

The rear panel features six USB ports, PS2 keyboard port, two eSATA ports, one Firewire, dual Marvell Gigabit LAN, integrated audio outputs thanks to the Realtek ALC889 HD chip, and another CMOS clear button.

As we already wrote before, the motherboard has mounting holes for both LGA775 and LGA 1156 coolers which is also something that overclockers might appreciate as there will be no need to change their LN2 pots mounting or switch from their favorite CPU cooler.

You can check out those pictures here.
