Gigabyte GA-P55-UD6 Intel P55 Motherboard Review

Gigabyte GA-P55-UD6 Intel P55 Motherboard Review - PCSTATS
Abstract: What really makes the companies' flagship Gigabyte GA-P55-UD6 motherboard stand out from the crowd? In one word - features.For starters Gigabyte has sweetened the pot with a little more of well... everything. There is support for nVidia SLI and ATI CrossfireX of course, but there's also combo USB/eSATA ports and a pair of extra slots for DDR3 memory to entice you.

Gigabyte's GA-P55-UD3R is right in the middle in Futuremark's 3DMark 06, which tests mosts of the motheboard's major features. Intel's P55 Express chipset seems to be pretty stable between different motherboard implementatins.

Performance here is again average.

Sierra FEAR 1.08

Source: Sierra

FEAR is Sierra's latest first person shooter which relies heavily on DirectX 9 features. With its "Soft Shadows" feature enabled, even the fastest videocards run at a crawl, FEAR is definitely the new benchmark for future FPS games to follow.

FEAR also shows nicely flat results. With PCI Express graphics, CPU processing and memory control all done on the same chip, the motherboard doesn't factor into gaming performance heavily.

Let's wrap this all up... conclusions are next!
