Gigabyte GA-X79S-UP5-WIFI Review

maximum pc
30 July 2013
  • Excerpt: When vendors previewed the first X79 motherboards in 2011, we were floored by the boatload of SATA ports. Rather than the wimpy six SATA ports (only two of which were SATA 6Gb/s) Intel chipsets usually gave us, the X79 was a he-man’s chipset with a heaping serving of 12 ports. But when we received production boards months later, the storage ports had been neutered to the same number as Z68! The reason? Incompatibility with some older SATA devices. Sigh.
  • Pros: Surprisingly affordable; tons of storage options.
  • Cons: SAS is touchy; utilities need performance overhaul.
