VRZone is taking a look at the new DFI LanParty UT P55 mainboard. They show some of the nice features we have come to expect from DFI, like a fully digital power Management system.
There are also a few interesting items that are not as easily identified. One is a slot for a NAND flach card, the other is a mini-USB port on the back.
VRZone did not have an explanation for this slot but said that DFI indicated it was BIOS related and would be a "breakthrough" in mainboard technology.

So what's so interesting about this board? At first look, you can see that it is fully on digital PWM and there is a slot for NAND flash. Also, DFI will be using Flame Freezer for the chipst cooling department as well. On closer examination, there is a mini USB port on the IO backpanel.
So what is it doing there? DFI refused to say anything but gave us a clue that it is BIOS related and is a breakthrough for motherboard technologies. This mystery will be unravelled at Computex Taipei 2009 where DFI will officially be announcing this board there.
