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.

    I disagree with previous comment. I think gigabyte are better motherboards than ASUS. I have always found them more stable.
