"The 990FXA-UD7 uses an 8+2 phase power design. The 990FXA-UD7 features Gigabyte’s 2oz. copper PCB, driver MOSFET, lower RDS MOSFET, ferrite core chokes, and all solid electrolytic Japanese manufactured capacitors. The board also features Crossfire and SLI certification, USB 3.0, SATA 3.0 and support for 3TB+ hard drives. Not only does it boast support for 2 and 3-Way SLI / Crossfire / CrossFireX but 4-Way as well."
"The launch of the AMD “Scorpius” platform for the performance desktop PC featuring the upcoming Bulldozer processor is finally in motion at Computex 2011 with the releasing of the AMD 9 series chipset. While we have to wait a little longer until we can get our hands on the Bulldozer, the launching of the 9 series chipset from various motherboard manufacturers means that the processor should be coming very soon."
"Over the coming months as we build up towards finally getting our hands on the Bulldozer platform, we'll no doubt be looking at plenty of 990FX based motherboards from companies. Having already looked at what ASUS offered us in their ROG Crosshair V Formula board, today we'll take the time to check out the GIGABYTE option."
"Man, look at what we are reviewing today, it is the 990FXA-UD7 from Gigabyte, recently they kicked out the baby blue color schema and went all black. This motherboards seriously has to be the most breathtaking thing to look at ever, from Gigabyte that is."
"The 990FXA-UD7 sports a whole host of juicy mainboard features from across the entire GIGABYTE catalogue, as seen below. GIGABYTE’s own description of the motherboard also follows. Read on to find out how we tested, what we found and importantly whether we’d recommend the 990FXA-UD7 to you."
"It seems to me that Gigabyte have seen what people really want from a new motherboard and created a product to fit in that gap perfectly, yes the cost is a little high but it is entirely justifiable as all the comparable boards from competitors are lacking the looks and the features that this product offers."
"One aspect of the GIGABYTE 990FXA-UD7 truly set it apart from the ASUS Crosshair V Formula. That was our experience when we overclocked the AMD FX-8150. When we pushed the FX-8150 on the ASUS Crosshair V Formula, we weren't able to break 4.6GHz with all eight cores active. At 4.6GHz the system would boot up completely normal and seemed to be rock solid."
"The long Bulldozer wait has finally come to an end. Enthusiasts look at the new FX series CPUs with mixed reviews and feelings. As usual, Gigabyte had several 990FXA motherboards ready prior to the Bulldozer launch and today we have our paws on the 990FXA-UD7, the flagship board on the lineup."
"Welcome to the world of motherboards! This is a place where cheap alternatives often beat the most expensive flagships. Creating a competitively priced but well performing product is the goal. With that in mind, here’s Gigabyte’s new AMD AM3+ socket motherboard, the GA-990FXA-UD7, based on the AMD 990FX chipset."
