Gigabyte GA-P67A-UD7 / UD5 Motherboards Previewed at IDF 2010
24 October 2013
Summary: Gigabyte debuted a pair of black-clad Intel P67-based motherboards for the upcoming 'Sandy Bridge' CPU at the Fall 2010 Intel Developer Forum this past week in San Francisco. PCSTATS is happy to be able to show you a few preview shots and preliminary specs for these beauties today.
Conclusion: Final Thoughts It’s very hard to show benchmarks for a motherboard as it relies heavily on the rest of the components. Due to this, it may not seem that the UD7 was fantastic in comparison but you have to weigh up the pros and cons of the features as well as performance to see if it’s the right board for you.
Pros: Sexy styling, Great overclocking potential, Mass amounts of connectors, Reasonably priced, Fantastic performance
Excerpt: If there’s one thing we know about Gigabyte, it’s that the mobo maker loves USB 3.0. We mean, it loves USB 3.0. How much? The company has been pushing USB 3.0 as its number one feature for a while now, and this tact has apparently worked. The company claims that it’s the No. 1 USB 3.0 motherboard company, whatever that means. The GA-P67A-UD7 is the pinnacle of USB 3.0 boards to make it in to our hands.
Summary: Overall I liked the Gigabyte P67A-UD7. I didn’t experience the usual USB keyboard issues I’m used to dealing with in regard to Gigabyte boards. Overclocking is as easy as it gets and the system was stable no matter what I threw at it. Onboard components worked as expected and it was smooth sailing through every test. I even liked Gigabyte’s new color scheme and the layout was solid with the only real issue being the almost useless PCI-Express x1 slot.
Conclusion: The GIGABYTE P67A-UD7 motherboard looks like an excellent board for hard core gamers and overclockers. The overall motherboard has a very clean and high-quality design which represents GIGABYTE’s Ultra Durable 3 motherboards really well. We can physically feel the sturdiness of the board, making it even more suitable for heavy heatsinks and other coolers.
Conclusion: Gigabyte's Enthusiast Offering: The P67A-UD7 Gigabyte’s UD7 series of motherboards has long been one of the most respected in many enthusiast circles and this tradition should continue into the P67 products as well. For the time being, the P67A-UD7 will be the highest-end and most expensive Sandy Bridge supporting board in Gigabyte’s lineup. It has a literal laundry list of features, many of which will likely overlap with similarly priced X58 products.
Excerpt: Mit dem P67A-UD7 präsentiert Gigabyte sein Flagschiff betreffend Intels neuen Sandy Bridge Prozessoren. Eine äusserst angenehme Neuerung ist, dass Gigabyte das Frabschema seiner High-End-Boards geändert hat und diese nun zweifelsohne optische Leckerbissen sind. Ferner sind wir aber auch gespannt wie es um die Performance, dieses doch etwas teuer ausgefallen Mainboards steht.
