Gigabyte GA-P55A-UD6 Motherboard Review

Intel's Lynnfield based Core i5 and Core i7 processors are implemented on quite an interesting platform. Although AMD has used integrated memory controllers on their processors for years, it wasn't until recently that Intel started implementing such controllers to replace their legacy Front Side Bus design on their budget Nehalem products. But Intel did not stop there, and actually took it a step further. In addition to the integrated dual channel memory controller, Intel has also moved features such as the Direct Media Interface chip to chip link and PCI Express controller to the CPU itself. Because most of the features that formerly resided on the Northbridge are now moved onto the processor, it has practically eliminated the need for having both a Northbridge and Southbridge on the motherboard. @ APH Networks
