ASRock Intros Entry-Level P55 Motherboard

ASRock introduced a new entry-level, low-cost P55DE3 socket LGA-1156 motherboard, based on the Intel P55 chipset, supporting Intel Core i5 and Core i7 "Lynnfield" processors. Its simple design employs a 4+1 phase power circuit for the CPU VRM, four DDR3 memory slots to support up to 16 GB of memory, that boast of support for DDR3-2400+ by overclocking, two PCI-Express x16 slots, of which the second (orange) slot wired to the P55 PCH and provides electrical PCI-E x4 connection, and two each of PCI-E x1, and PCI. Two of the chipset's six SATA 3 Gb/s ports are permanently assigned as eSATA, with four available internally. The CPU socket area provides mounting holes for LGA-1156 and LGA-775 coolers. Gigabit Ethernet and 8-channel HD audio make for the rest of it. The ASRock P55DE3 is selling for as little as 87 EUR.

This isnt bad, if it has a low price it will be a winrar (im assuming that works out to around 110 US?)

AsRock, nice to see them around still. Yeah price should be cheaper than the Gigabyte UD3P55 (the 154.99 one) Looks to be solid.

That and they probably will, unless it comes out as ASUS. Either way, nice to see a cheap i5 board, once dual cores come out next year, there is no point for P55 anymore.
