New Gigabyte 900 series chipset boards spotted: all 990FX, 990X, and 970 boards out

OFFICIAL SITE!


LINK to 990XA-UD3
It has everything I ever wanted


Check this link for other boards
Among them: a 990FXA-UD3 with black PCB, a 990FXA-D3 with blue PCB but only 4+1 power phase with no heatsink (I recommend against OC-ing this on 125W processor with no cooling)

EDIT: Here is that 990FXA-UD3:


Based on a $190 CAD preorder price I saw on NCIX for the 990FXA-UD5, this is how I expect pricing to go:
990XA-UD3 - $100-$120 (hopefully, this is the board I'm shooting for!)
990FXA-D3 - $100-$120?
990FXA-UD3 - $140-150
990FXA-UD5 - $170-180
990FXA-UD7 - $220-240

There will be a 990FXA-UD3 with black PCB. It's on Gigabyte's site too, it just loads really slow
post #7 of 35
I'm eyeing that 990FXA-UD3. Looks like a solid board without a bunch of features I won't use anyway.

I'm a fan of the blue PCB. In addition I'm confident the 990X board will perfectly fit my price range
It appears to have all the features I could ever want/need. 8+2 phase VRM, CrossfireX/SLI support (in case, but unlikely), and enough SATA slots for 2 HDDs in RAID, another HDD, an SSD, and one or two for DVD drives/etc. (I wish there were more SATA ports though). A lot of things are in similar places compared to my 790XT.

I wonder what with those weird narrow chokes though, they seem to be commonplace on new Gigabyte boards

They look nice.
I think i will get one of those instead of the one i had in mind.
I hope they don t have any Nikos semiconductors installed as i sweared to myself to not buy a mobo featuring such things
Now lets wait and see some reviews with them ,even featuring a Bulldozer

And i like the blue of the Gigabyte mobos all the way.
I m bored of the black already ,maybe to much MSI

More boards:
970A-UD3
970A-D3

Their X70 series boards are improved, this 970 is now an 8+2 with MOSFET heatsink - the previous gen 870 had no MOSFET heatsink. I might even go for the 970A-UD3 over the 990XA-UD3, I don't actually have any need for CrossfireX/SLI.
