The Nehalem microarchitecture moves the memory controller into the processor. There’s even an integrated Bluetooth module, which is usually not a standard feature on motherboards. This might cause a lot of confusion for some consumers and the upgrade paths are anything but clear. The third member of the family the first being the CPU is called the Southbridge. If that wasn’t excessive enough, some uber-high-end P55 boards will also feature nForce chips and support for three-way SLI.

Triton II [19] [20]. As the P55 chipset is the first chipset to launch for LGA processors, our understanding is that Intel hasn’t quite finished some of the spec’s for its CPUs with integrated graphics and as such it’s not certain that the P55 chipset will support these processors or not.

Views Read Edit View history. Discontinued BCD oriented 4-bit Intel’s Lynnfield will hit upwards of 2. Refer to Datasheet for thermal solution requirements.

The Z68 chipset which supports CPU overclocking and use of the integrated graphics does not have this hardware bug. For the consumer this isn’t a huge issue right now, just stay away from any P55 motherboards that has display connectors on them, as they won’t work with the first generation of CPUs, as these CPUs don’t have integrated graphics. Smart DualBios can save critical data such as passwords into memory, or even work as a scheduler for important dates and events.
