Gigabyte 990FXA-UD7 (AMD 990FX) Review

Rating: 9.0.

We have already reviewed several 990FX motherboards, but today we are looking at one of the latest boards from Gigabyte, the Bulldozer supporting 990 FXA-UD7. The UD7 series has a great reputation among enthusiast users, so we have high expectations today that this will continue the success story for Gigabyte.

For those who don’t already know, the 990FX range of motherboards are backwards compatible so you can use your current Athlon II or Phenom II X4/X6 without a problem … which is just as well as the AMD Bulldozer range of processors has yet to be released.

The Gigabyte 990FXa-UD7 is fully loaded, offering support for DDR3 memory up to 2000mhz and 2,3 and 4 way AMD CrossfireX and Nvidia SLI configurations. The board also includes support for SATA 6GB/s, IEEE 1394a and USB 3.0 devices.

A list of full product specifications can be seen over here.

KitGuru – Children’s Hospice Charity PC Auction

We can all agree that the last 12 months have been challenging and stressful for everyone, and I wanted to utilise Kitguru in a positive way for a great cause. Over the next two weeks, we are holding a silent auction via email for our readers and supporters, with 100% of the proceeds being donated to the Northern Ireland Children's Hospice. Additionally KitGuru will be donating the same amount as the winning bid, effectively doubling the donation to the charity. This is a very worthy cause that we want to support this year and everyone who enters will know that they are potentially going to help children in real need.
