16 Socket 2011 mainboards
     Sat, Jun 02 2012 | 12:02P | Motherboards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
At the end of last year, Intel released its new generation high-end processors under the codename Sandy Bridge-E. The Core i7 3960X and 3930K feature six cores, up to 15 MB L3 cache, a quad channel DDR3 memory controller, and a PCI-Express 3.0 controller with 40 lanes.Our review showed that the new processors ensure Intel's comfortable lead on the CPU market. Since the architecture changed a lot compared to Intel's previous high-end processor, the manufacturer could not avoid creating a new socket and chipset for the Sandy Bridge-E CPUs. That new socket is called Socket 2011, and the chipset has been christened X79. The new platform has now been around for more than half a year and in that period we have tested a total of 16 motherboards with Intel X79 chipsets. Time for a round up!

Gigabyte Z77X-UD3H @ Techreaction.net
     Sat, Jun 02 2012 | 9:04A | Motherboards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
A motherboard is nothing without a CPU, memory, video, sound hard disk drive, keyboard, mouse, case, monitor, power supply So it is a big party inside and outside the box (where a modern home computer is concerned) and every component plays a part, with the MB being the core component. Is the motherboard the most important? No it is not; though, it is necessary. Being necessary means that, just like the CPU, your motherboard can make or break your build and yes there is a magic sauce put into many boards. The Gigabyte Z77X-UD3H has some of that sauce! It is not the best board in the world for the newer Intel processors but there is no best board. So if there is no best how can it have the sauce? Well a little thing called value added. This board has many value added features that move it a step above other boards in the same price range. In our view the most useful features of this board are the integrated POST code reader, the BIOS reset button (much more convenient that the jumper), power on/off button mounted to the motherboard, and more. If this sounds interesting to you and this board falls into your price range it could be the board for you."

GIGABYTE X79-UD3 Motherboard Review @ Vortez
     Fri, Jun 01 2012 | 9:04A | Motherboards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
As we will see with the X79-UD3, the same `bang-per-buck` ethos applies to today`s review sample. With top end motherboards rapidly approaching the 500 mark and mid-range boards well in excess of 200 it is great to see GIGABYTE have kept the price below that threshold with the UD3 weighing in at a very reasonable 175, one of the cheapest X79 motherboard available to date. Hopefully GIGABYTE have not trimmed too much fat to achieve this price."
