Although this is not a full scale review of the chipset (more of a "what's new"), I did take the time to cover some of the performance you can expect from the new Intel chipset. So I took a look at the items that would be changed from the X58. This is primarily HDD performance so I compared the HDD performance of the P55 to the X58.
As you can see from the results above the X58 still holds a slight (1MB/s) over the P55 when running the Core i7 870. This lead increases with the Core i5 750.
The amount of CPU time used to process the data also increases, but realistically you would not notice this performance difference except in high throughput applications (like rendering or heavy calculation applications).
