GIGABYTE sends us our first A55 motherboard and we see what the lower end chipset offers when compared to the A75.

Replacing Everest in our labs is AIDA64. This new testing suite is from the core development team from Lavalys and continues that tradition. The guys have thrown in better support for multithreaded CPUs as well as full 64 bit support. We use this to test memory and HDDs for now, but may find ourselves opening this up to other areas of the motherboard.

Looking at USB 2.0 performance, you can see we're a little behind our other boards here with the ASRock actually making use of XFast technology which gives it a strong boost. In the USB 3.0 department, we can of course see that the technology isn't actually on offer when it comes to the A55, so instead we have to opt to use our USB 3.0 device on a USB 2.0 port. You can see it's slightly faster than our USB 2.0 device, but only marginally.
