American retailer Newegg.com has started listing Gigabyte's GA-890GPA-UD3H motherboard, one of the first motherboards based on the AMD 890GX + SB850 chipset. This socket AM3 motherboard boasts of native SATA 6 Gb/s support, USB 3.0, Radeon HD 4250 integrated graphics, at a price of $139.99. The GA-890GPA-UD3H supports socket AM3 AMD Athlon II and Phenom II series processors, including support for the upcoming Phenom II X6 six-core processors. It also supports dual-channel DDR3 memory at speeds of over 1866 MHz by overclocking. Expansion slots include two PCI-Express 2.0 x16 (electrical x8/x8 when both are populated), three PCI-E x1, and two PCI, bringing CrossfireX support. The SB850 gives out six SATA 6 Gb/s ports with RAID 0, 1, 0+1, 5, 10, and JBOD modes. An NEC-made USB 3.0 controller also provides two USB 3.0 ports. The IGP connects to displays over D-Sub, DVI, and HDMI. Presumably, this could be the starting point for more AMD 890GX based motherboards to reach stores world over.

I wonder if that chipset supports TRIM.

yeah of course it does... why wouldn't it? The chipset has nothing really to do with trim from my understanding as it just passes the command from windows to the drive.

six SATA 6Gbps ports with the ability to do bootable RAID 0,1,5,10 is nice

Sorry, I was referring to the southbridge SB850. I haven't been paying attention much to the AMD boards lately.

Not all will be able to pass the TRIM command due to driver issues so it's not a hardware thing directly.

if a native SATA 6Gbps chipset that is just being launched can't support TRIM from day one that designer needs to be fired.
