@ Anibus, what CK said. I'm not sure but I think from Newegg and the like they are out of the UD7 rev 1.0 stock. But yes make sure you get a rev 1.1 if you go with the 7
Yeah, I noticed one listing for the UD7 on newegg.ca said 'discontinued', and when I did another search for 'Gigabyte 990FXA-UD7', the result was exactly the same board and description, but saying in stock, but 'no reviews yet.' This second one must be the 1.1 version, but it doesn't actually say so anywhere. I'm not exactly keen on guessing the rev. # for a $200 motherboard and paying $9.00 shipping to find out it's a 1.0 after all. There are a couple of UD7s listed on canadacomputers.com, the only decent local store in my city, but none of them are in my city. I'll call tomorrow and ask those stores that have them if any of them are rev. 1.1, and if so, I'll order it, but even if any of them are 1.1, it'll take until this coming Friday to get it. I guess it's not so bad, since I don't even have the 8350 chip yet anyhow.
By the way, is it just my imagination, or are there more 990FX boards suddenly showing up on newegg? For example, last time I checked a few days ago this ECS A990FXM-A DELUXE:
Just wondering, as it almost seems like the Vishera has suddenly re-energized the AMD enthusiast motherboard market again for the first time since before Bulldozer's release. It almost seems like all these motherboard makers with 990X/990FX motherboards they'd built and stockpiled in anticipation of Bulldozer, but never sold, are suddenly opening up their storage vaults and sending them over to distributors because the Vishera chips are actually selling pretty well.
