GIGABYTE P67A-UD4 Motherboard Performance Review

GIGABYTE Motherboards have always employed a wide variety of colors on them. At least until now. The GIGABYTE P67A-UD4 motherboard features the all new blacked out color scheme! First impressions, they look great! Unfortunately, looks won't do anything for performance. Today we are going to take the newly designed GIGABYTE P67A-UD4 out for a test drive. While it looks great, the question will be does it perform? Read on to find out if the performance matches the looks!

Just because the GIGABYTE P67A-UD4 isn't the flagship board doesn't mean that it is lacking in features. In fact, the GIGABYTE P67A-UD4 shares many of the features of the flagship P67A-UD7. We'll start out with the basic similarities between most (if not all) Intel P67 motherboards. SATA6 is supported via the Intel P67 chipset. I haven't come across any P67 boards that aren't taking advantage of USB 3.0. In the case of the GIGABYTE P67A-UD4 there is a pair of Renesas D720200 chips which supplies us with two USB 3.0 ports on the rear I/O panel, as well as a header that will run a pair of front panel USB 3.0 ports. We will take a peek at the Renesas chips as well as others when we look at the layout of the GIGABYTE P67A-UD4.

I agree good review :) keep them coming. The only thing I like to see is maybe add some overclocked numbers, also see how far the board will go as far as BCLK is concerned.
