We decided to take a look at GIGABYTE’s high-end offering, the X58A-UD7. This board features advanced cooling for the chipset and power regulation areas. It also has built in support for SATA 3.0, including RAID support as well as USB 3.0 and Tri-SLI.
Gigabyte X58A-UD7 is a socket 1366 motherboard based on Intel X58 chipset and ICH10R south bridge, bringing all features enthusiasts are looking for: four PCI Express x16 slots, two SATA-600 ports, two USB 3.0 ports, Japanese solid capacitors, and more.
Considering that the UD7 is one of the top model motherboards in the Intel platform socket LGA1366, it makes sense for it to be priced at around $340. It is not the overall price that causes concern, but the price disparity between the UD7 and its predecessor, the UD5. The UD5, with an MSRP of $290, also comes with 16 Phase Power, 2x Gigabit LAN, and Unlocked Power features.
