With the launch of the AMD FX processor and its extremely overclockable nature, it's easy to overlook that many people won't be running their chips at extreme speeds. GIGABYTE's 990FXA-UD7 is as good as any in the overclocking stakes (and...

The overall performance of the GIGABYTE 990FXA-UD7 wasn't far off the competitor today. What really sold us on the GIGABYTE 990FXA-UD7 was the overclocking! We have previously been unable to POST past 4.6GHz on our AMD FX-8150, on the GIGABYTE...

The Gigabyte GA-990FXA-UD7 is definitely a pearl of a board, but there are still flaws that need to be worked out. 4-way SLI / CFx, tons of overclocking options and rock stability during the testing really vouch for this board to be Gigabyte’s AMD...

All three of the AMD 990FX-based motherboards we tested here performed well. Although based on the same silicon as the older 890FX, all of the 990FX-based boards we tested were ever so slightly faster throughout our suite of benchmarks, perhaps due...

Awesome design, but does the performance match?With the AMD FX processors not having launched yet, this conclusion can only feel premature. We will revisit all the boards we can once the new CPUs are released so that they can meet their true...

The UD7 is a monster in some ways and a weakling in others. It has a packed PCB, which sports useful features such as power and reset switches, and it’s also able to cater for the craziest of SLI or CrossFireX setups. While it uses a BIOS rather...

Gigabyte seemingly has put the 990FXA-UD7 motherboard on the market that has a lot of issues. You really need to read through the review to understand why. As it stands, there is no way we can suggest you purchase this motherboard. AMD needs to...

As expected the latest AMD 990FX/SB950 shows no significant performance gain over the last generation chipset from AMD (890FX/SB850). The new chipset is essentially identical except it offers native support for Bulldozer and NVIDIA SLI. While we are...

Let's face it, the AMD 990FX release took us a little by surprise, I mean... here we have this all new motherboard series yet are lacking the Bulldozer FX processors to show off the (hopefully) real muscle power. Meanwhile all reviews and tests that...
