Over the course of the last few months since its release, the EVGA X58 SLI Classified has become the unanimous leader amongst Intel X58 based motherboards. This domination comes primarily from the world of competitive benchmarking - just check the motherboard used in the top 20 results for most benchmarks at HWBot.org - but the domination also stems from the enthusiast community being a leader in features offered. EVGA used the X58 SLI Classified to cement their position as a premier motherboard manufacturer offering the ultimate performance in a class leading package, at the same time launching the Classified brand as the ultimate line of products for both overclocking and innovation.

Towing a feature list longer than the specification sheet, the Classified brand was an instant hit with consumers for offering more unique features than we had ever seen before. Unprecedented aspects of the X58 SLI Classifieds design propelled it to the top of the "must have" list for all competitive benchmarkers, and put it on the short list for modders and system builders worldwide for its renowned aesthetics. Combining beauty with brawn, the Classified brand showed that it could do it all. This Classified brand recently filtered into the EVGA graphics processing division with the release of the EVGA GeForce GTX 285 Classified.

Again, the Classified heritage of offering features unheard of in a product line has made the GTX 285 an instant stand-out in its class. Built-in features designed to make the GTX 285 Classified the ultimate benchmarking video card like the X-Cool switch for extreme cooling and overkill Digital PWM design - like the Classified motherboards - make sure that the Classified brand continues to dominate with every product that receives its label. The X58 SLI Classified is surely to join the hall of fame in benchmarking circles right alongside the X48 Rampage Extreme and NF4 Ultra-D before it.

The Classified brand on a whole is poised to take on legendary status like that of the DFI LanParty series. Today, we are going to take a sneak peek at the latest from the chambers of the Classified lab, and the latest to don the Classified label, the EVGA P55 Classified 200. Will it be the ultimate Intel P55 based motherboard?
