Intel DP55WG and DP55KG P55 Motherboards Benchmarked Review

Posted on Friday, December 18 2009 @ 19:48:30 CET by

The Core i5 processor and P55 Express chipset are Intel's flagship parts for the mainstream market. Today, Legit Reviews takes a look at the Intel Extreme Series DP55KG 'Kingsberg' and DP55WG 'Warrensburg' motherboard to see how these two board perform. Both offer the same level of performance at default clock speeds, but what about features and overclocking performance?

Quote: "As you can see both of these motherboards are nearly identical, but there are a few small differences. For starters the Intel DP55KG costs $199.99 shipped. This is $60 higher than the Intel DP55WG motherboard as it costs just $139.99 shipped. These two boards might have the same form factor, chipset and processor support, but the price difference shows something bigger must be happening. When Legit Reviews first saw these motherboards at Quakecon 2009 we discovered that the Intel DP55WG 'Warrensburg' motherboard is based off the same PCB as the Intel DP55KG 'Kinsberg' motherboard, but has been stripped down. The main thing we noticed is that Intel removed two of the power phases so the DP55WG has just four total power phases. Intel also removed the eSATA ports from the back panel, two of the SATA ports, the onboard USB port and other features like the Bluetooth and the cool LED skull. Intel also removed some of the overclocking features from the BIOS on the Intel DP55WG motherboard. The end result is a board that is $60 less expensive, but how will that impact performance and overclocking? Let's read on to take a look at that..."
