After careful consideration I have decided to transfer all hardware review activities to a new domain. I purchased Hardwareasylum.com in 2012 and have been working hard to build a new and improved Ninjalane on that domain. If you are reading this you have reached one of the archived articles, news, projects and/or reviews that were left behind during the site migration.
Please update your bookmarks and be sure to visit the new and improved Ninjalane at Hardwareasylum.com
In this review, we will be looking at a top-of-the-line offering from EVGA called the P55 Classified. "Classified" is the brand name given to the products that offer the most in terms of supported features, overclocking, and tuning ability. In short, these boards are the ones you get to show off to your friends and break records on.
The Intel P55 is a desktop level chipset designed for mainstream and multimedia systems. In some ways, the P55 is very similar to the X58 chipset, but takes things further by completely eliminating the northbridge chip. The remaining functionality was then moved to the processor for better performance.
