The Gigabyte GA-P55-USB3 is an ATX sized motherboard that supports an Intel LGA1156 format CPU slot. This is a scaled down version of the Gigabyte GA-P55-UD5, built with only a single 10/100/1000 Ethernet port onboard and no eSATA support. Video card support has been reduced as well, with only ATI CrossFireX technology being directly supported. One new feature that has been added is 2 USB 3.0 ports, capable of information transfers that are approximately the same speed as eSATA ports. Otherwise they are the same, with up to 16GB of DDR3 memory and onboard high definition 7.1 channel audio. 6 SATA connectors can enable a number of drives to work in RAID 0, 1, 5 and 10 configurations.
