What would be that "huge" improvement was Z68 Gen3 boards?

More USB3 connectors,SATA3?

Please..

Yes I agree that these boards would be a boost compared to the current Gigabyte Z68 lineup..

I'm not being fanboy or anything as I really like Gigabyte,but let's face it Asus still owns them especially with their Z68 lineup.

1st of all I'm not impressed by the look of these Gigabyte boards,it's like we're back into 2007 on a release of Asus P5K PRO (similar heatsink design)..

I think that biggest boost that Gigabyte could provide to their users would be to eliminate that ridiculous Boot loop once and for all..
That really ruins Gigabyte experience..


CHEERS..

Why is the only PCI slot right beside the second PCI-e 16 slot? Your telling me if I upgrade using any of these motherboards I won't be able to use my soundcard anymore with crossfire 6950?

No thanks.

Hopefully other manufacturers use their brains and put the PCI slot in an actually usable position if they choose to only include one of them.

I was seeing this more and more with new "high end" motherboards and thought about the future about PCI, it's becoming more irrelevant to the general consumer each passing year. After thinking about it I just bought myself a USB dac and enjoyed quality sound with that.

6+2+1 phase power on the G1. Sniper M3?

Come on, even Asus's Z68 boards do better than that:

Maximus IV Gene-Z (which I take to be roughly equivalent to the G1. Sniper M3 in terms of placement on the lineup) is 8+4+2 for CPU/GPU/RAM:

On the Z77 front, AsRock's Z77-Fatal1ty Professional M looks much better than the G1. Sniper M3 as well:

Also, what's with the 4-pin CPU power connector on the G1. Sniper M3? I thought the Sniper series were supposed to be relatively high-end boards?

I have a Asus Xonar ST and I refuse to drop it for a USB dac.

As for the relevance of PCI they obviously saw it relevant enough to include at least one PCI slot, why did they have to put it right beside the PCI-e 16 slot where it would be unusable for anyone with a crossfire/sli setup? They have three PCI-e 1x slots, simple logic would tell you to put the PCI slot on the other side of the PCI-e 16 slot and put the PCI-e 1x slot on the other side.

What general consumer has a need for 3 PCI-e 1x slots? At least with the PCI slot on the other side you would always have access to either PCI or PCI-e 1x even with a Crossfire setup. Their PCI placement begs the question be asked why even put it there in the first place?

Also both UD3H and UD5h have extra SATA power connector for extra power for SLI configurations. One of the things I have been asking for a long time is these features on more than just 1 board.
Look how many internal USB 3.0 ports the UD5H has, that is ridiculous lol.
Also what i like is that they have all the video outputs.
These boards are a huge improvement over Z68/P67 gigabyte, by alot.

I thought there was going to be m-sata. Oh well.
THere is m-SATA on UD3H and UD5H and Sniper 3.

Really ?..improvement over P67 fiasco maybe ,as much as i love GB's this makes me sad,sorry

Its called phase quality over quantity. You are talking about almost double the output per phase. Also while the M4Gz uses doublers the UD3H and M3 do not, they are straight 6, means they have full range of PWM switching frequency.
no bootloops with gigabyte UEFI, i think the whole issue had to do with them using their "hybrid" UEFi for P67.

Also Lucid MVP: http://gigabytedaily.blogspot.com/2012/02/lucid-virtu-mvp-what-it-is-and-why.html

Do you know how much power ivy bridge requires?, save your judgements of performance for release. That is what i am doing.
