I don't think the UD5 comes with the NF200 chip. So it will be x8/x8 with the last slot being x4 electrically.

But Sin just said that both the UD5 and UD7 have the NF200 chip...

Really? Hmm..

Usually Gigabyte doesn't release two monster boards with NF200 chips. Even techPowerUp! noted that the UD5 won't have it.

The author wasn't 100% sure so I guess we have to wait for more concrete information from Gigabyte or other sources.

*Edit*

Okay, I'm still not sure. According to Legit Reviews, they said the the first two PCI-e slots are full bandwidth 2.0 (x16 2.0 I believe).

I think I was wrong, there might be no NF200 on the UD5, I will ask Gigabyte today for you guys, but answer might come a little later because they are in Taiwan.
Now I looked at this picture from legit reviews where shoudl be underside of NF200:

This is the bottom on my UD7 right you see the square area there are resistors

This is from Gigabyte officially:
P67A-UD5


Features:
1. Industry’s leading 20 phase power design for maximum power delivery.

2. Onboard SuperSpeed USB 3.0 and SATA 6Gbps to deliver impeccable data transfer speeds.

3. GIGABYTE Ultra Durable™ 3 design with 2x Copper PCB to provide the stability, reliability and longevity essential to meet the power needs of high-end processors and other components running today’s most demanding applications and games.

4. Unique GIGABYTE 3x USB Power design with On/Off Charge USB ports to offer faster battery charging for iPhone, iPad and iPod devices.

5. New Matte Black color PCB offering a stylish new outlook that blends itself to decoration and case mods.

6. CrossFireX™ and Nvidia® SLI™ support for ultimate graphics performance

7. GIGABYTE patented DualBIOS™ technology delivering the highest level of failure protection.


Brief Specifications:
CPU Support: LGA 1155 Intel® 2nd Generation Core Processors
Chipset: Intel® 6-series Chipset
Memory: 4 DIMMs
Dual Channel DDR3 1333 / 1066 / 800
Expansion slots: 2* PCI-e x16 ( 1x16 or 2x8)
1* PCI-e x4, 2* PCI-e x1
2* PCI
Storage: 4* SATA 3Gbps , 4* SATA 6Gbps
8* USB 3.0, 10* USB 2.0
3* IEEE1394
Audio: 8-Channel Audio
LAN: 1* PCI-e GbE
Form Factor: ATX
Others: DualBIOS™, Ultra Durable™ 3, On/Off Charge, 3x USB Power,

I did a bit more reading into SLI spec, it says CrossFireX + SLI support for the UD5, for the UD4P and the UD3 it only says CrossFireX.

I really think SLI is supported at 8x each slot, BUT not x16 SLI. I think the heatsink is there for looks and to help cool down the phases and PCH. I think the board looks better with the heatsink than without it.

I mean the board will be much cheaper than the UD7, less phases, less extras, but same cooling maybe a lot cheaper.

I thought NVIDIA was going to stop producing the NF200.

Read some thread somewhere. It just caught my eye. I think it was in October or earlier.

Maybe they have a new chipset coming? i have no idea why they would stop making something that gives them huge market share. It is an old chip though, long running life in motherboards.
