"S-ATA 3.0 and USB 3.0 devices may seem non-existent right now, but the add-in cards and motherboards to power them are certainly not. We're taking a look at one of Gigabyte's first "333" motherboards that supports both technologies, the feature-packed P55A-UD4P. At $180, it's priced-right given its feature-set, and overclocks like a dream, too."
"GIGABYTE is one of the first motherboard manufacturers to adopt this newer type SATA III HDD interfacing. One of these motherboards to get this new standard is GIGABYTE's P55A-UD4P. This motherboard is not much different from the original P55-UD4P, review can be found HERE, except this one carries a SATA III controller, and uses an a designation in the name to differentiate between these two motherboards."
"Enter the Gigabyte GA-P55A-UD4P motherboard, based on Intel's P55 Express chipset with a trio of augmentations that push its capabilities beyond the typical Intel P55 offering. Top of the list is Gigabyte's 333 Onboard Acceleration marketing pitch, which in real world terms is USB3.0, SATA III and 3x USB power. Phew... all the GA-P55A-UD4P needs now is a Laser-7 optical connection and then you can finally hook up that Wii! "
As always, let's start with the packaging. Both Gigabyte boards came in very similar boxes. The UD4P used a green theme, while the UD6 used a Blue theme and was slightly bigger. Other than that, the boxes appeared to be pretty much identical. The front featured the motherboards name, and a picture of '333 Onboard Acceleration'.
