Default asrock p55 boards? cheap but amazing features?

So you can get an asrock p55 deluxe for 179.99 CAD. With it u get a 16phase power design. a Sata 6GB add-on card. dual lan ect ect.

How do they do this?

More phases do not make a better mobo. Marketing mumb-jumbo.

the audio chip is also the alc 890 which is a higher end codec...

Just seems by the features and build quality off this board seems amazing but the price is crazy low compared to competitors offering the same features.
