    ASUS is readying its most affordable ATX motherboard based on the Intel P55 chipset yet, the P7P55 LX. Supporting socket LGA 1156 processors, the P7P55 LX is intended to be priced even lower than the P7P55D LE (under 100 EUR). Everything about this board is thin and lite: narrower PCB, solid-state capacitors confined only to important VRM circuits, 5 phase CPU power circuit, and other basic features. The product however, doesn't leave out some ASUS exclusives such as MemOK, ExpressGate, and TurboV.

    For expansion, there's one PCI-Express 2.0 x16, one PCI-E x16 (electrical x4), two PCI-E x1, and three PCI. All six SATA 3 Gbps ports are assigned as internal ports. An additional controller provides an IDE connector. 8-channel audio with optical SPDIF output, and gigabit Ethernet make for the rest of the feature-set. Expect the board to be out soon.

    With all these cheap P55 boards coming out, I'd sure wonder if Intel will ever release some affordable Core i5 stuff.. Haven't really been watching the news, but 200$ for the lowest end CPU is a bit silly when AMD has stuff in the 100-120$ range that are just as fast.
    Kitkat says thanks.

    Duals will be out next year for P55s. In the mean time there is P45 :p Intel and cheap quads just don't exist.
