    Gigabyte GA-P-55-UD5 Core i5 preview

    In this sneak preview, we’re checking out the upcoming P-55-UD5 motherboard from Gigabyte. The board is said to be one of the better choices in the P-55 class and is meant for the Intel i5 CPU’s, who uses the Lynfield architecture and therefore can’t be used with the existing X58 motherboards for Intel i7 CPU’s. This is because of a new socket type, named LGA 1156, and as the name states it has less pins available than the socket used for Intel i7 CPU’s, meaning that the performance will never reach the i7’s that have more memory bandwidth

    This MB looks expensive , problem with core i7 was not only the cpu being expensive but the rest of the components like ddr3 and MB.
    Hope the core i5 gets some cheaper mb.
