ASUS P7P55D Deluxe
Lynnfield Motherboard Preview‏






Back in June, we were in Taiwan during the Computex 2009 expo and the buzz surrounding Intel's upcoming mainstream Lynnfield processors and accompanying P55 chipset was definitely starting to intensify. While specific bits of information about the processors themselves were few and far between, there were quite a few sneak peaks of the Socket LGA1156 motherboards coming to light. For example, we were able to bring you an in-depth preview of a few pre-production Gigabyte EP55 models.

As many of you are aware of, the official launch date for the Lynnfield series is quickly approaching and with them a veritable swarm of P55 motherboards is going to hit the market. The sheer scope of new models available may actually set a few records and at the very least it will leave consumers' heads spinning. This is one of the reasons why ASUS have wisely chosen to preview their new P55 series to help their models stand out from the crowd as early as possible. Today, we will be briefly showing you one of the higher-end P55 models in the ASUS roster, the P7P55D Deluxe.

As the initial torch bearer for the P7P55D series, the Deluxe comes packed to the gills with goodies. It supports all upcoming Lynnfield Core i5 and Core i7 processors, has a stout 16+3 phase power design, four DDR3 memory slots with frequency support up to DDR3-2133 (O.C), three mechanical PCI-E x16 slots, CrossFireX and SLI support, dual Gigabit LAN ports, an impressive 10-channel HD audio CODEC, 9 SATA ports, 14 USB 2.0 ports, 2 FireWire ports, 1 eSATA port, a new TurboV EVO real-time overclocking processor with accompanying TurboV remote, onboard power/reset switches, and a totally jumper-less design. And that's just the start!

In this first of many P55 motherboard previews, we will give you a quick rundown about all the features this model has to offer in order to whet your appetite until the actual review hits our front page. Unfortunately, due to NDAs we can't show you performance or BIOS screens but don't worry, you won't have to wait too long before we put this board through our torture tests.
