EVGA H55, H57 Motherboards Pictured, Too

EVGA seems to be ready with two of its first motherboards based on the Intel H55 Express and H57 Express chipsets, supporting processors in the LGA-1156 package, along with support for Intel Flexible Display Interface to make use of the iGPU embedded in some dual-core Pentium, Core i3, and Core i5 processors. The two look nearly similar - infact seem to have the same PCB layout. The LGA-1156 socket is wired to four DDR3 DIMM slots for dual-channel memory support. There are two PCI-Express slots (x16, x4), and three PCI slots. The EVGA H57 model further packs two PCI-Express x1 slots.

The H55/H57 chipset provides six SATA 3 Gb/s ports, all of which are assigned as internal ports. A JMicron-made storage controller provides additional two SATA 3 Gb/s ports, along with an IDE connector to support two devices. Display connectivity on both models includes DVI and D-Sub. Other features include 8-channel audio, gigabit Ethernet, Firewire, and a number of USB 2.0 ports. The H55 model has two internal ports less, along with other internal features that the chipset lacks, such as Remote PC Assist, and Rapid Storage Technology. More details will be out soon.

Integrating a bunch of stuff onto the CPU really cleans up the motherboard!
