Exclusive Preview: The first P55 board in our labs
While the first Core i5 results have already leaked, the first board arrived to our lab yesterday. Because Intel is not able to deliver CPUs on time for testing, but happily selling them in Hongkong, Taiwan and Japan, we can only check out what the board will offer.
The P55 is not a real chipset, it's just the southbridge with some PCIe lanes, think of it as an enhanced version of the iCH10R. So you will see some boards which will feature northbridge coolers - and yes, there are no chips below them. They are place-holders for the upcoming P55/nf200 boards that will feature native SLI.
Let's have a look what Elitegroup is offering:
