Introduction to the Gigabyte P67A-UD4 Socket 1155 Motherboard
With the whole P67 technology for Sandy Bridge upon us, every motherboard manufacturer has pulled out all the tricks to get the buyers to decide in their favor. We have seen it all over the web as companies have sent out sample motherboards, even long before the processors were released. For anyone who was fortunate enough to receive a Sandy Bridge processor before launch, could not release any performance numbers, specifications or pricing anyways. So, until now all we could do is go by manufacturer’s press releases and the word of a few hardware websites.
One company that we saw some interesting samples for was Gigabyte. A long time top tier manufacturer of motherboards, Gigabyte has released some of the best performing motherboards on the market. Many have even broken a few world records. Yet for many of us it’s not about broking records, it’s about how well the motherboard is going to perform for us on a daily basis.
Gigabyte has announced the release of several different models based on the P67 chipset. Of their entire lineup announced, one to surely be popular is the P67A-UD4. You get native SATA III support, USB 3.0 via onboard controller, of course Sandy Bridge processor support, and those are just what you'll find on the typical P67 based motherboards. So what does Gigabyte have to offer? How have they gone above and beyond the norm? The UD4 model offers a plethora of features in addition to those. For starters, Gigabyte is now sporting a brand new sexy black look. As for that which isn't plainly obvious... Well, you'll just have to follow us down the rabbit hole and find out!
