Intel DP55KG P55 Lynnfield Motherboard Review

Author: Steve Grever
Subject: Motherboards
Manufacturer: Intel

Testing Configuration and Benchmarks Used

We compared the Intel DP55KG against the GA-X58-UD3R and ASUS P7P55D Deluxe. The thought process behind our testing criteria was two-fold: to evaluate the P55 platform against the X58 chipset and analyze the performance gains, if any, users will notice with an LGA 1156 CPU versus an LGA 1366 processor.
