That's what I got from it.

With regards to connectivity, and strictly between UD4 and Pro, I would say that the Asus Pro is probably the way to go. The UD4 doesn't have firewire, it only has 2 6Gb/s Sata ports, it has no extra USB3.0 ports over the Asus Pro, both are 12 phase, and the Asus has the Intel NIC.

However, while the Asus does have more features than the UD4, the UD4 has more features I'll actually use. But for me, the UD4 was still lacking in some areas, so I got the UD5. I figure I will have this motherboard a few years, so spending a bit more to get the features I want goes a long way.

The UD5 gets you:
- 3x USB power
- On/Off USB power
- 4 USB3.0 ports
- 2 USB3.0 headers
- 2 pwr eSATA (6Gb/s)
- 20 phase power
- Supposedly better USB and Sata performance
- Heatsinks are attached with screws rather than push pins

What about the SLI performance on these two boards ? The Gigabyte UD4 and ASUS EVO (or PRO) ?
As I figured it out both operate in 8x/8x mode with two video cards. But I'm not sure about this.. it seems that the UD4 can perform in 16x/16x... Can anyone please confir this ?

The UD4 can't perform in 16x/16x. I know, it's clear as mud on their website. You need a motherboard with an NF200 chip if you want to do 16x/16x. For that, check out the UD7. Overall, 16x/8x is not really going to affect performance.

get whatever is cheaper and has the features you want. I was going to get the ud4 but I got the pro because the ud4 was out of stock at microcenter and the pro was a package deal with the 2500k so my pro was $150
