Asus has P67 problems. Gigabyte does not.

The features are pretty similar. The major difference is that Asus has UEFI bios.

I have the P8P67 Pro and after the bios update and disabling the marvell controller that I'm not using anyway it works great. The controller just caused it to boot without posting a time or two before posting and going ahead and booting.

Check out Asus's forums. There are tons of problems. 3 boards, all DOA or died within one day. Not to mention their customer support is a joke. I've been hung up on more than 5 times when I was put on hold. O and when they answer and say "we'll call you back" 24 hours later no phone call. Call again and they will act like they never wrote your number down.

UD-4 has BIOS, P8P67 has UEFI. That's the major (if it can be called major) difference. There are also some bonus features - ASUS' board got Bluetooth and external (via back panel, 2, ports) usb 3.0. Gigabyte got some nice stuff going with usb ports - you can plug up to three power-drawing devices to one port (via hub, obviously), charging from usb ports when the pc is powered off. Different expansion slot layout.

Personally, I chose P8P67 because of UEFI, Bluetooth and expansion slots (I have a pcie sound card).
