ASUS P7P55D EVO P55 Motherboard

As we move into the holiday season, many are looking to Intel's new Lynnfield Desktop Platform for an upgrade or new build. Not surprising, there's plenty of good hardware on the market to choose from. In this article, Benchmark Reviews looks at the P7P55D EVO motherboard from ASUS. As part of their P55 lineup, the ASUS P7P55D EVO provides full support the for the new Lynnfield platform, along with several unique features. We'll explore these features in detail and find out how the EVO stacks up against other mainstream platforms.

The P7P55D EVO is one of several motherboards in the ASUS P7P55D series that launched last month. The models within this series share the same base configuration, but vary in terms of features and overclocking options. Compared to the rest of the lineup, the EVO model that we're looking at today sits about middle of the pack. It contains all of ASUS' proprietary hybrid technologies, but isn't quite as robust as the Premium and Deluxe models.


With an MSRP of $199, the ASUS P7P55D EVO also costs a bit less than the higher-end ASUS models. At first glance, it appears to be a good compromise between features and price. Over the next few pages, we'll look at these features in detail, as well as the results of our performance testing. Similar to the Intel DP55KG review published last month, we'll be comparing the ASUS P7P55D against two other chipsets: the Intel P45 and the AMD 790FX. This time, however, we've upgraded our test suite to Windows 7, which should better utilize our multi-core systems.

Visit the ASUS website and find this motherboard, then view their CPU compatability list.

There are several choices, but IMHO, the i5-760 is a good match. It's not the fastest, nor the cheapest, but I think it represents a good value.
