EVGA releases three new motherboards; the H55, H55V and H57. All three motherboards are designed for the Intel Socket 1156 processors, the H55 and H55V (mATX) are based on the Intel H55 Express chipset, while the H57 is obviously based on the Intel H57 Express chipset. Full specifications of each motherboard should soon be available on EVGA's website.
The EVGA H55V is expected to retail for around 95EUR, while the H55 has a MSRP of 135EUR. Here's the press release:
The EVGA H57 and H55 motherboards are based upon the award winning EVGA P55 motherboards which, in fact have been recognized by over 13 respected hardware review sites, with the general consensus that EVGA is number one for performance and features!
When paired with a supported CPU, the EVGA H57/H55 motherboard becomes a high quality media platform with HDMI, DVI, VGA or DisplayPort. Furthermore, with Intel® Turbo Boost Technology, Intel® Smart Cache, Intel® Hyper-Threading, and super fast DDR3 memory support; the EVGA H57/H55 motherboards are not only fast, it is smart too!
"The award winning X58 motherboards from EVGA showed that we were serious about designing quality motherboards, the EVGA P55 lineup verified this with over 13 recognitions from Top Review sites. The new H55/H57 based motherboards from EVGA are proof why EVGA motherboards are now the standard for quality." said Bob Klase, VP of Sales at EVGA.
“With the introduction of the Intel® H57 and H55 Express chipsets, new high performance motherboard solutions for Intel’s Core I3, Core I5 & Core I7 Micro Processors, are now broadly available at high volume mainstream price points.” said Steven R Peterson, Director of Intel Platform Marketing, “EVGA is offering a solid lineup of motherboards based on these new chipsets and we are excited to be working with them to bring these to market.”
