Visible specifications include two PCIe x16 2.0, PCIe x1, and PCI slots, four DIMM slots for up to 16GB of DDR3 2600MHz, an eight-phase DrMOS, nine SATA ports (two are 6Gb/s), and Realtek ALC889 onboard audio. The I/O panel reveals two USB 3.0 ports (powered by NEC's controller), dual-gigabit Ethernet and other standard connections.
The P55-GD85 has a handful of overclocking features, like onboard power, reset, plus and minus buttons, as well as a header to check CPU, memory, and chipset voltages with a multimeter. It's also pointed out that the board's energy profile meets the EU's EuP requirements. Unfortunately, no price or release date accompanied the images.
