IXBT Labs have a review of the Gigabyte P55-UD6, based on the Intel P55 chipset to provide a high-end motherboard:

The recent rollout of the LGA1156 platform has naturally resulted in the deluge of new motherboards with Intel P55. Even though there is only one chipset for this platform so far and only three processors, each manufacturer decided to launch at least four or five motherboards. It must be noted that it took almost a year to produce the same number of X58-based motherboards. And initially each company offered only one or two motherboards (Intel has offered only one, having rolled out four motherboards with P55). There is nothing surprising about it -- LGA1156 is positioned as a popular solution, not as a top product. Besides, the reduced number of bridges and simplified layout prepossess to the MicroATX format. So almost half of the announced products are MicroATX models, while there are only several products of this format based on X58. However, times hasn't come yet for plain utilitarian (and cheap!) motherboards for this platform -- as it usually goes, deluxe models with additional controllers appear the first, spiced up with additional controllers and other expansions. That's exactly what we are going to examine today.
