Gigabyte aims for microATX with P55 boards
Earlier this week, the folks at Gigabyte held an event to introduce the press to their lineup of P55 motherboards. I attended and got the skinny on a whole raft of upcoming products—11 different motherboard models, by my count, based on Intel's P55 chipset and intended for Lynnfield Core i5/i7 processors.
Reps from Intel and Kingston were on hand to talk about how their new CPUs and memory would complement the motherboards. The talk was generally upbeat all around, since many in the industry are looking to Lynnfield and its related products to provide a much-needed boost for the PC market in the midst of a difficult economy. That hope is predicated in part on the fact that Lynnfield projects to deliver a real boost in single- and dual-threaded applications—including games—thanks to an aggressive version of the Turbo Boost function familiar from the original Bloomfield Core i7s.
