    Gigabyte's first wave of motherboards based on the Intel P55 chipset, supporting the upcoming LGA-1156 processors, is set to consist of as many as nine models according to a company slide sourced by XFastest. Of these, there are seven ATX, and two micro-ATX motherboards, graded by features, and Gigabyte exclusives. The ATX lineup starts with a GA-P55 UD6 model, and proceeds down in the order UD5, UD4, UD3P, UD3R, UD3, and US3L. The micro-ATX series holds GA-P55M UD4 and UD2. It's over to the slide that lists out features of each model in the series:

    Gigabyte's lineup could launch along with the first Intel LGA-1156 processors, less than five weeks from now.

    Are they all going to be priced at $5 intervals or what? This P55 stuff is intense right out the gate.

    A beautiful sight too, all those boards have at least two x16 slots.

    Wherever I can find the iron.
    If the Gigabyte boards are even near the quality and performance of their i7 boards, then they will have a winner here.

    Nothing wrong with P45 lineup either, sure they are fine which ever you pick. Might just be a tad too many models, not that there is no NB. Putting a heatpipe in between the VRM sinks isn't going to do much compared to the one without the pipe.

    Though this time there is double the phases more on UD3R compared to UD3, when only difference with (P45) DS3 and DS3R was raid. If I was upgrading, it would most likely be GA-P55-UD3R.
