It looks like motherboard vendors aren't missing the opportunity CeBIT provides to display their upcoming motherboards, notably those based on Intel's LGA-1156 supportive P55 chipset. One of the first ones from the house of Gigabyte is the GA-IBP. "IBP" refers to "Ibex Peak", the platform codename. Featuring most common components of a motherboard of its kind, that include four DDR3 DIMM slots for dual-channel memory, connections for Intel's Felxible Display Interface (FDI), three PCI-E x16 (electrical x16, x8, x8, rearranges based on slot population), and the single-chip P55 chipset, the board supports both ATI CrossFireX and NVIDIA SLI technologies. six internal SATA ports, HDCP-compliant onboard audio and dual-Gigabit LAN make for the rest of the offering. We will learn more about this basic design from Gigabyte as we get closer to the launch of Intel's upcoming LGA-1156 processors.

That's cause you listen to rumors started and perpetuated by fools.

I'm hoping for a UD3 version of this, the sexy blue + Gunmetal Grey heatsinks and Blue and White DIMM slots..

He was asking what CPU heatsink would fit on it, if the holes were 775 or i7. *JaKe*

I agree, the latest P55 boards look like there are from a few years ago.... Oh and i really thought gigabyte learned their lesson with the colors that they used to smear all over their boards. Their X58's looked great being 90% blue/white but now this rainbow crap is back again with very cheesy looking gold heatsinks.

This board has two features that I wish all other gigabyte boards could have. The first one being sideways sata slots and the second being the pwr switch/reset/clrcmos. Other than that, it's ugly.

I like it... and holy crap, that's a LOT of USB/Firewire headers. Haven't seen that many since the GA-E790USLI-DQ6.

I'm guessing it will cost 150-160 dollars, if it has the extra NVIDIA chip to support the additional PCI-E slots.

Probably ~130 for the version that is the P55 only.
