After the UD3 through its paces for a few months, there is no doubt that this board is a great budget X79 board that can handle anything and punches above its own class. Based on the performance we have seen on this board, we do not understand why...

The GIGABYTE UD5 was one of the first X79 motherboards we had the pleasure of testing here at Vortez. Like its X58 brethren, the X79 chipset, while inherently different hardware, provides similar overclocking values and features galore. The UD5's...

We were pleasantly surprised with the Gigabyte X79-UD3. Maybe because it co-operated flawlessly during our test runs. The UD5 sample that was tested at the [M]lab was far from. Refusing to post when changing a lot of values in the bios, bios...

Like any other mainboard, Gigabyte GA-X79-UD3 is not totally flawless. Even one of its advantages, such as four graphics card slots supporting 4-Way/3-Way/2-Way AMD CrossFireX or NVIDIA SLI configurations may be considered a drawback, because the...

Plotting a performance PC? Snag a high end motherboard. That's the conventional wisdom challenged by the new Gigabyte X79-UD3. Of course, any board based on Intel's X79 chipset hardly rates as poverty item. At £175, the Gigabyte X79-UD3...

I've come away pretty impressed with Gigabyte's budget X79 motherboard. There were a few quirks along the way but overall this is a pretty solid offering at a good price (in X79 terms, at least).It all starts with aesthetics where Gigabyte took...

This being Gigabyte’s lowest priced socket 2011 offering we are very impressed. Being low-cost in the socket 2011 segment is not like its socket 1155 counterpart where the low-cost boards start at around $60. This board comes in at $249, which...

The Gigabyte X79-UD3 on the surface looks to be a very solid choice for anyone looking to pair it with the Intel i7-3930 socket 2011 processor. At the time of this writing this motherboard and processor was one of the cheapest around without taking...

It is always difficult breaking in a new hardware platform and while X79 has been out for awhile there are still many things to explore and different hardware combos to try. If you are looking for an inexpensive option to get you on the X79...

With 40 lanes of PCIe 3.0 connectivity to host all of our high-bandwidth devices, LGA 2011 certainly qualifies as a premium processor interface. Today we examine seven X79-based motherboards that offer high-end features at a more palatable price. When...

Over the years, Gigabyte has given us some interesting products. More recently in the past 18 months, Rajinder gave their H55N-USB3 motherboard a well deserved recommendation, and more recently, I have scrutinized their Sandy Bridge range. For...

De eerste negen moederborden vallen ons allerminst tegen. Integendeel: je merkt aan alles dat moederbordfabrikanten echt hun best hebben gedaan om stuk voor stuk een goed product af te leveren. Een high-end platform als X79 is iets waarmee je je in de...

Использование топовых процессоров, например лидера сегодняшнего дня Intel Core i7-3960X, как бы автоматически подразумевает, что большие деньги придется отдавать не только за сам процессор, но и за прочие комплектующие, в частности за материнскую плату....
