ASUS P7P55D-E Deluxe MB Review @ EOC!

EXTREME Overclocking has just posted a review on the ASUS P7P55D-E Deluxe Motherboard.
With the mid-range 1156 socket becoming ever so popular, ASUS is bringing their offering to the table. The ASUS P7P55D-E Deluxe motherboard has a great feature set including USB 3.0 and SATA 6Gb/s. This coupled with their TurboV EVO overclocking package and Hybrid 48 phase power, this board should really shine. ASUS has taken the P55 chipset and added some extras of their own to take this motherboard to the next level.

I'm surprised they put the COM where they did, or even had one at all. Overall I really like the layout. I wouldn't mind the absence of the pata though.

I wonder how big the boost is for the USB3 with the added bandwidth. A really great review! I'm surprised the lack of attention it's getting from the community.

My optical drives are still PATA. Honestly, I can't bring myself to replace them as they still work great. Have an old Plextor 52/24/52 CD-RW drive (which will likely never die, they were premium drives in their day; all metal gears and such), and an HP LightScribe DVD-RW DL drive.

I skim read, but didnt see anything about the PLX chip. You should mention it, as it really is a negative point to the board. It steals bandwith from the PCIe slots, and still doesnt offer full 600Mb/s for the SATA3 ports. And there is no way of disabling it. With other boards you get the option to run full 600Mb/s and have x8 for GPU, or have x16/8x8 with SATA3/USB3 running as SATA2/USB2.

Perfect timing. I am seriously thinking about buying this board to go with a new setup and this review helps cement the decision.

who uses PATA or PS2 ports anymore that's buying a LGA1156 system? Is that COM1 header for a 9 pin serial port?

I use serial ports still... But that's because I dabble with GPS devices and older gear from the 90's and even 80's...

PATA is quickly going out of style... I have some older system's that have PATA DVD burners... But new computers I'll spend the $20 to get a new SATA DVD burner...

PS2 I hope stays around for a while... I've had a heck of a time finding a decent USB keyboard that I like... Most of the good models are still PS2.

Why the heck is Firewire still around? That's even more nonsensical than PATA...

agreed. USB has taken over the world I'm not sure why firewire is relevent any longer. Even ESATA is useless with USB3 becoming more standard all the time. Although it's usefull if you don't have USB3 but have an ESATA port like I do..

Although I suppose I just dislike the notion of a 20 year old specification on my brand new mainboard. Can't say a whole lot though.. the Genius's at Dell decided to make their Track pad and keyboard use PS/2 interfaces in their $5,000 laptop =.='

Some of it also has to do with what the chipset offers... When they add additional features to boards, they can consume USB or PCIe bandwidth internally.

I remember a LONG time ago, ABIT tried to make a "legacy free" motherboard... It only had USB ports on the back... No serial, parallel, PS2, or the like... The next model they added back the PS2 ports.

I think once USB3 and SATA 6Gb/s get added as a native component to a chipset then things will start to change.... But as-is they are still new technology, especially USB3... And when most boards only have 2 ports... it doesn't exactly scream takeover...

MB vs Mb

It may just be a capitalization difference, but you're actually making your number 1/8th what it should be: 600 MB/s. Someone who didn't actually know the speed of USB3 might think it was only 120 Mb/s faster than USB2... ie a whopping 1.5 MB/s faster.

Why are you always the one to correct people when they forget to capitalize the second letter? This is like the 3-4 time Ive seen you do that. Everyone around here knows what your trying to say even if none of the letters are capped.

Because I notice? Because I'm OCD? Why do do people keep typing it incorrectly if they know which is correct? Really not that hard to hit the shift key. It's not a matter of a typo, it's a matter of making a completely false statement.
