The orange threw me off a bit. I thought it was a x79aoc, not the usually gold coloured ud7.

Only two of the PCI Express slots available work in an x16 mode, as the other two HAVE only 8 PCI-E lanes routed to them.

However, the motherboard is compatible with 3-way Nvidia SLI and AMD CrossFireX graphics card setups.

well ill raise you the deputy director of marketing@HQ:
post #5 http://hwbot.org/forum/showthread.php?t=32622
I was at IDF, i saw the board. That is my site that is cited in the source.

Anyways i am not told final specs, but from what i have seen in terms of slot configuration, that last slot is wired to the CPU.

I understand that you read something on softpedia you might take it over what i say, but in this case not so much.

BTW the UD7 is orange, because it was supposed to be the X79-OC, but from what i hear, sales told them that OC board would make potential customers not want to buy the board, thinking it was hard to setup, so the name was changed.

The UD3 fits as an OC board for a cheaper market, it should be an excellent P/P

Until I see an official features list, I will consider the UD3 to only be capable of 3 way SLI (as stated in the article I cited). Too many X58 boards looked like they'd support 4 way, but were incapable of it.

If the UD3 does support 4 way, then it will be much more preferable to the UD7 and I'd consider the UD7 a complete waste of money unless you wanted to do extreme overclocking. Certainly the UD3 would be preferable to oveclock under water if it supports 4 way.

When it comes to GB, I either know it or i don't.

here is my proof, look close: http://sinhardware.com/images/frontp.../X79-UD3_s.jpg

you can even zoom in closer on that image, its prob the highest RES of that board there is, and that is the most current board.

Case closed UD3 is 4-way SLi capable. At 8X/8X/8X/8X, same as the 990FX chipset. If that doesn't prove it to you then something is definitively wrong..

Case may be closed for you, not for me. Until an official features list is produced that specifically states 4 way, I'll not believe it. So far there is no such features list and the only X79 Gigabyte board that a features list specifically stating support of 4 way SLI exists is the UD7.

They should start offering colour options not everyone wanting a high end board is going to like orange...

Either that or stick with the all black of the UD3, looks best anyway.
