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.          Gigabyte's GA-P55-UD4P(click for larger view) As you can see, the...
