From Trusted Reviews:

A few weeks ago we took our first look at a P55 motherboard, the Asus P7P55 Pro. However, we didn't have the opportunity to actually play with the thing properly, much less put a new Intel Core i5 CPU in it and get it up and running. Well, a few days ago Asus once again contacted us and offered us a sneak peek at another of its boards and this time we could actually plug the thing in and get a system going.

Core i5, if you recall, is Intel's brand new lineup of CPUs, expected to arrive in the next couple of months, that are based on the same basic architecture as Core i7 but with a few tweaks to make it less expensive. Specifically the memory controller has been cut-down to dual channel rather than triple channel and QPI has been replaced with DMI.
