  • Excerpt: X58 is by far the most expensive board on the market, mostly because it is at this point the only chipset capable of supporting the Core i7 processors. And most likely, unless NVIDIA is granted a licence for the QPI bus, it will be the only chipset.

  • Conclusion: Like many other X58 motherboards, the GigaByte EX58-UD4P performs quiet well. But it’s not just the kind of performance that separates one company from any other. It is the features that each has that separates them. In this category, GigaByte has a definite lead. By utilizing two 2oz copper plates in the PCB, a copper heat pipe design, three PCI-E X16 ports capable of handling Tri Fire or SLI with the greatest of ease, this motherboard is the most stable motherboard I,...

Gigabyte EX58-UD4P Intel X58 Motherboard Review

ThinkComputers
3 February 2009
  • Summary: Conclusions The Gigabyte EX58-UD4P is my first LGA 1366 motherboard, so to be honest I really don’t have other X58 motherboard experience to compare it with. It was a little hard to separate it from the i7 in this review, considering the great improvements that Intel built into the i7, and the X58 chipset. But this isn’t the first motherboard I have looked at, and I have plenty of experience in that realm.
  • Pros: – Mainstream priced but fullfeatured, – Easy to use BIOS, – Awesome overclocker
  • Cons: – None that I found

Gigabyte EX58-UD4P Intel X58 motherboard review

TechSpot
5 January 2009
  • Conclusion: Gigabyte's willingness to be on the forefront of Core i7 sales is evidenced by the range of motherboards they are already offering. Their X58 boards range from basic examples, such as the EX58-UD3R, to the outright crazy. The EX58-UD4P provides users with all the essential features without going overboard. For example, most users will only require a single Gigabit LAN controller, while eight SATA ports will usually cover it.

Gigabyte GA-EX58-UD4P X58 Motherboard

Benchmark Reviews
31 August 2008
  • Conclusion: Whenever a new hardware platform launches, I feel that manufacturers owe it to consumers to educate them on the changes. To this extent, Gigabyte does only offer a few tiny bullet points of information pertaining to QPI, and 3-channel memory. What you get is a whole lot of information on Ultra Durable 3 and the benefits of using 2 ounces of copper, some marketing points pertaining to Hybrid Silent-Pipe 2, and a little about Dynamic Energy-Saver.
  • Pros: Outstanding BIOS - designed for enthusiasts, TPM security offers 2048-bit encryption, Advanced Dynamic Energy Saver Advanced offers VRD 11.1 ultra-low power state, Triple PCI-Express 2.0 compliant graphics slots, BIOS updates are made safe with dual-BIOS, Japanese-manufactured surface mount all-solid capacitors, Blu-Ray/HD DVD Full rate audio with DTS connect, Supports three-way ATI CrossFireX and NVIDIA SLI video card sets, Industry-leading thermal cooling architectu...
  • Cons: Premium motherboard solution, BIOS options can be complicated for some users, Lacks Serial Attached SCSI (SAS) onboard support, Independent core multipliers are not available, Turbo Boost not available when overclocking

16 April 2009
  • Conclusion: It's a rare day indeed when I come across such a well rounded motherboard. All of the other motherboards on test have some failing, be it price, overclocking, aesthetics, cooling etc. The Gigabyte EX58-UD4P hit's the sweet spot in almost everything. It looks the business (but please get rid of those orange and yellow slots!
  • Pros: Overclocking, On board LED's, SLI/Crossfire compatibility, Comprehensive accessories
  • Cons: Orange/yellow slots

  • Excerpt: Brand: GIGABYTE Supplier: GIGABYTE Website: www.gigabyte.com.tw RRP: TBA Review By: Neo Sibeko | NAG Magazine (March 2009) IF YOU’RE LOOKING AT upgrading to an i7-based system, but find that the average motherboard is too expensive, then the UD4P may be worth considering. Indeed, it is by no means a cheap motherboard, but is definitely more affordable than the UD5P or the EXTREME, which can cost anything up to R6,000.
