While the latest in motherboard news may not be particularly thrilling, if you’re planning on building a PC any time soon (or just ordering one), it pays to be aware of what’s out there. I’m going to be putting something together myself in a few months, after these boards have clashed for a while and a clear victor remains, and while I’m not yet decided on AMD vs Intel, if it’s the latter I’ll definitely be running a P55.
The X58 chipsets which dominate enthusiast rigs these days will slowly be going the way of the dodo as P55 matures, but the first crop seems to be getting pretty positive reviews. PC Perspective has a nice little review roundup if you want to skim the conclusions and specs.
