Enter the Gigabyte GA-P55A-UD4P motherboard, based on Intel's P55 Express chipset with a trio of augmentations that push its capabilities beyond the typical Intel P55 offering. Top of the list is Gigabyte's 333 Onboard Acceleration marketing pitch, which in real world terms is USB2.0 slots capable of outputting higher voltages to power external hard drives and the like, a pair of 4800Mb/s SuperSpeed USB 3.0 ports for high-speed peripherals care of the brand new NEC PD720200 controller and 6.0 GB/s SATA III via Marvell's SE9128 controller for faster hard drive transfers. The '333' moniker comes from USB3.0, SATA III and 3x USB power. Phew... all the GA-P55A-UD4P needs now is a Laser-7 optical connection and then you can finally hook up that Wii!
