Maybe if we all e-mail Gigabyte thay will answer the question on the UD7? It's an odd way to conduct business that's for sure.

The new chip set was announced last fall and will be in AM3+ boards.

Nice feature is the 8 sata ports.
Native USB3 but no pcie 3.0

The 990FXA has 8 sata ports aswell....... 10 if you include esata....

You'd be pretty stupid to entertain any of the information in that release......

Nobody is stocking the UD7 in aus either, but the UD3 and UD5 are still stocked.

This chip set is reported to have 8 sata ports running off the south bridge, not the six that are currently available. Of the ten sata ports you mentioned, only six are native to the 950 chipset, the other four are gained through add on chips.

Time will tell if these reports are accurate, but the fact that multiple sites are giving the same information tends to add some credence to them.

Time will tell. This may be intended for CPU successors to Vishera/Piledriver with possible higher data comm frequencies?

This looks like a chipset that isn't really needed yet but... One thing people don't seem to be able to get enough of is PC mobo fan headers and SATA ports. They must use a bazillion toys plugged into their PC and a hundred fans??? wink.gif

Have to agree with you, I would love the 8 Sata ports if it is true - I really like my Sabertooth, but It wouldn't hurt my feelings to upgrade. Who knows though if the reports are accurate - not much info on the chipset since last fall.

One thing that I like about the Gigabyte board that you are inquiring about is that they enable read ahead and write back in the raid rom. Something that Asus doesn't do - unless you can find a modded bios.

Wrong thread here, but thanks for the tip on the unganged memory in your guide on the AM3+ boards. Nice concise guide. Got mine changed over to unganged this morning.

UPDATE: 5-7-12

Newegg mysteriously has the GA-990FXA-UD7 mobo back in stock even after discontinuing this model and claiming they would not be stocking it again in the near future, if ever.

Gigabyte Sales advised that the UD7 is still in production and that any Vdroop or BIOS issues were all fixed with BIOS updates. They did not offer any hint that the UD7 was changing in any manner. rolleyes.gif

Hmmm....that's good to hear. I was feeling like I made a bad choice going the UD7 if they discontinued it so early.

Maybe someone got their wires crossed... I don't think Newegg would discontinue the UD7 without someone from Gigabyte telling them it was being replaced by a newer model but who knows for sure what the real deal is? Mobos can be changed for any number of reasons that have nothing to do with problems so even if they do supercede the UD7 or come up with a new Rev. it may be for a chipset change or something of insignificance.

I'm curious if any other folks e-mailed Gigabyte Sales or Newegg to find out what the deal was on the UD7? It would be interesting to see if the replies are consistent or if there is something new in the pipeline.
