But now that all heads have turned to Intel newest offering the Core i5, Gigabyte is not holding anything back. Coming to market on launch date will be a complete line of P55 motherboards. We predict the best seller to be the P55-UD4P as it offers the most for the money. Crossfire, SLI and support for DDR3 2200 is what everyone will be looking for when upgrading to the newest Intel platform. But the board with the most bang for the most will be the GA-P55-UD6.
The P55-UD6 has just what the enthusiast will be looking for. Which begins with a BIOS that is meant to allow the best and highest overclocks. For the person willing to pay a little extra, this is what he or she is looking for: a motherboard that allows high BLK at the highest possible multiplier. Add in the dual GPU configurations in Crossfire and SLI, we can see Gigabyte adding to its awards and world record collection. One feature that I like about the new Gigabyte motherboard is that it is pretty. So, lets take the P55 and the new Intel i7 860 for a spin and see if it is worth your time and money.
