ASUS Core i5 Socket 1160 motherboard spotted at CeBIT

Posted on Monday, March 02 2009 @ 14:18:05 CET by

German computer site PC Games Hardware snapped more than a dozen of photos of the ASUS P7U and P7U PRO motherboards at CeBIT 2009. The biggest difference between the P7U and P7U PRO is that the latter one has two PCI Express x16 slots.

These motherboards are designed for Intel's upcoming LGA1160 Core i5 processors. Both products promise easy overclocking, excellent performance, TurboV real-time overclocking tuning, instant-on Express Gate and EPU system level energy efficiency.
The P7U and the P7U Pro both have a socket 1160. Unlike Intel's current top CPUs of the Core i7 series (socket 1366), the socket 1160 CPUs don't offer a Triple Channel interface, but Dual Channel only. Thus both boards have four DDR3 memory slots. According to the official specs 16 GiByte DDR3-1333 are supported. Furthermore the Asus motherboards are equipped with a new Intel chipset of the 5er generation, which is a single chip design. Both boards, the P7U and P7U Pro, are supposed to have very good overclocking capabilities. Furthermore Asus integrated the OC tool Turbo V, the micro operating system Express Gate and the power saving technology EPU. The most important difference between the two versions: Only the P7U Pro has two graphics slots.
