Taken from HWC's review

I was correct, well, mostly, ended up that the PCH(P55) has 8x PCIe 1.0 links instead of only 6x. Everything else I have been saying about P55 and LGA1156 also turned out to be correct, such as the P55 being connected to the CPU via a DMI link with the equivlent bandwidth of a 4x PCIe 1.0 link. My advice/information stays relevant.

Not that P55, LGA1156, and the i5/i7 brand have been a well kept secret though!
