ASRock shows off three H55 boards
mATX and ATX
ASRock has announced three H55 boards for Intel's upcoming Clarkdale Core i7 and Core i5 LGA 1156 processors.
The H55M Pro and H55M are rather similar mATX boards with a somewhat different feature set. The Pro version has 4 DDR3 slots, 2 Firewire connectors, 1 eSATA port and ASRock DuraCap capacitors. The H55M has just two memory slots and no Firewire, but it offers 2 eSATA ports and all-solid capacitors. The rest of the spec is the identical, D-Sub, DVI, HDMI, 7.1 audio and ATI Crossfire support.
The H55DE3 is a full ATX board with 4 memory slots, all solid capacitors, 2 eSATA ports, D-Sub, DVI, HDMI and 7.1 audio.
All three boards feature a trial version of Creative's Sound Blaster X-Fi MB software, so users can upgrade the sound system at next to no cost.
