Gigabyte's GA-P55-UD5 socket-1156 motherboard is an enthusiast grade Intel P55 Express platform with a ton of extra features packed into it. Along with the obvious support of Intel Core i5 and Core i7 800-series socket 1156 processors, the GA-P55-UD5 board features three physical PCI Express x16 2.0 slots that support both ATI Crossfire and NVIDIA SLI modes (in x16/x8/x4 modes, x8/x8 when using two videocards). Just one rung underneath the double-stuffed smorgasbord Gigabyte GA-P55-UD6 platform PCSTATS has on the test bench this week. For most people interested in Intel's Core i5 processors and all that's available via the P55 Express chipset, the GA-P55-UD5 will be more than enough and not break the bank.
