    Motherboard giant Asustek will soon present a new board called ASUS P7P55D-E Platinum. The board will be first with native USB 3.0 and SATA 6Gbps support. Using Intel's P55 chipset the board squeezes into a tight category since ASUS has no less than 16 motherboards for Intel's LGA1156 platform. But now that it has enabled both USB 3.0 and SATA 6Gbps support it's worth another launch.
    ASUS P7P55D-E Platinum has genuine support for all of the new storage interface as it can offer full bandwidth for connected drives. Since Intel offers no support for the new interfaces through the chipset ASUS had to use an extra bridge chip. Basically it looks like the same solution it used with the PCI-Express card we reported on earlier, but now everything is done by the motherboard, including USB 3.0.
    The new interfaces aside ASUS has fitted the board with all the goodness of the regular Premium boards; including 48 phase hybrid power supply, dual PCI-E x16 slots, 10 channel HD audio, and DDR3 2200 support when overclocking.

    Specs look nice but why can't they use the red+black colour scheme they used on The Maximus Gene.

    Only specs launched, prices are still a bit away, but being a pro level board with 48 power phase(very few board use this) it may cost about 18-22k easily in india.
