    Isn't the nvram slot for the readyboost SSD cards you can get?

    Yes, but you can just as easily use it as an OS volume.

    Re: News - Intel P55 mainboards run amok at COMPUTEX '09: Core i5 still looming near

    Not sure how much use ReadyBoost is anyway.....the benchmarks on Vista always showed it as near-useless unless you had very little RAM and so far Windows 7 hasn't let me turn it on because "I won't see any gains"


    I wonder what use that slot will have TBH, it's not a SATA port so would need a special drive I guess......recovery partition? swap drive? EFI?...or just an empty port?

    The boards look good. For some reason I always get a charge when I see new motherboards as opposed to video cards.

    I can't wait to see how these P55-powered motherboards and others benchmark.

    You obviously need a more thorough grounding
