Intel P55 versus X58 memory performance

by Rafael Hernandez on January 27, 2010 · 0 comments

Intel’s P55 and X58 Express chipsets occupy two separate price categories but it isn’t always clear cut on which offers the best possible performance given that each handles a different processor socket.

TweakTown has a look at how well each platform performs, given a bit of an overclock, when running the same memory:

In wondering what we could do with the two kits and how we could work them both into a single article, I thought it was time to see how the old Tri-Chan vs. Dual-Chan debate is going on with our X58 GIGABYTE board and P55 ASRock one.

If you’re a price conscious performance seeker you may have just found your next upgrade path.
