P7P55/USB3 Motherboard is the First to Offer Front Panel USB 3.0 Support



ASUS today introduces the P7P55/USB3 motherboard—a motherboard with front panel USB 3.0 support designed to give users greater accessibility and convenience.



Leading Motherboards for the USB 3.0 Era

ASUS has pushed for the introduction of USB 3.0 across its product range, having been the first company to introduce a USB 3.0 motherboard with the P7P55D-E Series.



The company has once again set a standard with the P7P55/USB3—an affordable mainstream motherboard that delivers convenient, easily-accessible USB 3.0 performance. The P7P55/USB3 fits into any standard chassis, making it compatible with most consumers’ hardware.



A Stable and Convenient USB3.0 MB Experience

The P7P55/USB3 is the first motherboard to come with two USB 3.0 ports situated on the front and the rear I/O to answer users’ need for increased USB 3.0 accessibility. The P7P55/USB3 features an additional NEC chip to support the two front panel USB 3.0 headers. This ensures that there is no reduction in data transfer speed for each individual port.


With USB 3.0 integrated in a mainstream motherboard, ASUS eliminates the need for consumers to modify their cases, giving them the performance benefits without the hassle. ASUS, a brand leader in USB 3.0 motherboards, is continually working with other chassis manufacturers to ensure motherboard design compatibility.



ASUS will continue to include USB 3.0 in additional models over the coming months. Please check www.asus.com for more information.
