ASUS P7P55D-E Pro
The Intel P55 platform has been with us for a good while now, and it is a real sleeper, having the memory controller integrated with the CPU gives it a nice performance advantage over competing products, even higher priced ones. If it has any serious shortcomings, it's the number of PCI-e lanes that it supports.
When we published our comprehensive P55 motherboard roundup back in early April, one of the boards we discussed and really liked was the Asus P7P55D Deluxe. At $220, that particular board was priced significantly higher than some of the other LGA1156 options we considered. Fast forward a few months and we've got the LGA1156-based P7P55D-E Pro on the table.
"The ASUS P7P55D-E PRO comes packaged in a light blue box that highlights the included Xtreme and Hybrid designs. The Xtreme design boasts the motherboard as number one in performance, satey and reliability. The Hybrid design touts a16 Hybrid phase units, SLI/CrossFireX support, True USB 3.0 support and True SATA 6G/bs support."
"ASUS brings the P55 chipset an update in the form of the P7P55D-E PRO, with USB 3.0 and SATA 6 Gbps. The P7P55D-E looks to rival other boards on the market, and even potentially some of the up and coming P67-based products. In the face of Intel's latest release, is it still a viable option?"
