There's a lot riding on AMD's CPU+GPU Fusion part (now known as an APU in official AMD parlance), but new information suggests that when Llano does launch, it'll do so in a new socket. The new form factor will be known as Socket FM1, but it's not clear how it fits into AMD's roadmap over the next few years. When last we saw that document, it looked like this: Here we see Bulldozer arriving in 2011 on AM3. The implication, at least, is that Bulldozer could be a drop-in replacement for anyone who owns a current AM3 board, though AMD has yet to formally comment on this. Llano debuts on its own, unnamed... Read more...
Asus hosted an overclocking competition this past weekend and invited us out to see XtremeSystems, OC Alliance, and Team PURE vie for top honors and performance world records on both LGA1366 and 1156. I've got experience working with single-stage phase changers, which use air-conditioner compressors to cool a CPU down to roughly -50C, but liquid nitrogen-fueled overclocking is an altogether different kettle of fish. It's also firmly in the "don't try this at home", although the price of LN2 most likely makes this a moot point. The Rampage III board here is being prepped for subzero overclocking.... Read more...
We have shown you a myriad of P55-based motherboards over the last few months and featured a trio of high-end offerings in our coverage of the official Lynnfield launch from a couple of weeks back. The latest P55-based motherboard to hit the HotHardware labs, the EVGA P55 Classified 200, differentiates itself from every other P55-based mobo we've seen with a host of unique features.A few of the features that make the EVGA P55 Classified 200 so interesting are its 10-phase digital VRM, gold-infused CPU socket, its expansion slot configuration, and the board's myriad of overclocking / tweaking related...

It appears the Intel P55 motherboard previews are all the rage the past couple of days. Despite the fact that we showed off one of Asus' higher-end P55 motherboards way back in early June, we thought we'd get into the mix as well and give you faithful HotHardware readers a gander at a couple of Gigabyte-built motherboards that also feature Intel's upcoming P55 chipset for LGA1156 processors, codenamed Lynnfield.First up is the Gigabyte GA-P55-UD4P. We can't offer any information about performance just yet, but are able to give you a glimpse at the hardware and what it has in store.   ... Read more...
As is typically the case, there are plenty of hot, upcoming new products being showcased at the Computex event, currently going on in Taipei. And although Intel is yet to nail down a specific launch date and official product name, Asus is already showing off motherboards that will support Intel's upcoming mainstream Nehalem processor derivatives, codenamed Lynnfield--and sometimes referred to as Core i5, perhaps incorrectly.             Asus P7P55 Pro Lynnfield LGA-1156 Motherboard What you see pictured above is the Asus P7P55 Pro motherboard based on the Intel P55...
