Gigabyte GA-890GPA-UD3H AMD 890GX+SB850 mainboard review
Bluetooth 28 Feb 2010
Everyone seems to be launching new products at CeBIT 2010. Gigabyte, one of the
first tier mainboard manufacturers will also be launching a series of new boards
in conjunction with CeBIT 2010.
Gigabyte's GA-890GPA-UD3H is based on the AMD 890GX+SB850 chipset. This new
chipset features support for future 6 core CPU from AMD (Thuban) and now
supports the native 6Gbps (SATA3) interface for HDD/SSD in RAID 0,1,5,10. It
also has an integrated ATi Radeon HD 4290 (DX10.1) graphics with 128M sideport
memory support. Just like its predecessor 790GX, it supports ATI CrossFireX,
Gigabyte's GA-890GPA-UD3H features on its branding of "333" - USB 3, Power 3X
and SATA 3.0. As we all know, Gigabyte started the trend of embedding the NEC
USB 3.0 chip on its P55 and H55 board last year. It had since released new
models for both platforms. With the new AMD 890GX which offers better bandwidth,
you can now get true USB 3.0 performance as the NEC USB 3.0 controller is now
connected with 5Gb/s using native PCIe x1 2.0 from the AMD 890GX chipset.
On top of that, Gigabyte GA-890GPA-UD3H comes with Ultra Durable3 that is 2oz
copper PCB, 50,000 hrs Japanese solid caps and Dual BIOS. It incorporated a 4+1 power phase design for maximum stability. For the energy
conscious, it has an Easy Energy Saver feature too. It is EuP Ready as well.
