Well, where do I start? This has been a very impressive board from Gigabyte. It has the looks and the brains. And it certainly isn’t short on features. When this new line of AMD motherboards came out there seemed to be the impression that it really wasn’t going to offer too much over the previous chipset. To be honest this new chipset itself doesn’t offer a whole lot over the previous generation. Yes, you do get SLI support and dual-channel DDR3 support. But what is needed to make this chipset shine is a manufacturer willing to go the extra mile. That is exactly what we have with this Gigabyte board.
Gigabyte stepped up to the plate and knocked out a home run. This board features everything that an enthusiast should be looking for with their next board. The features read like an enthusiast wish list. They took an otherwise small improvement and turned it into something amazing. This board really does stand out amongst the competition. The real question is will this board compete with the Intel Sandy Bridge offerings? Well only AMD can answer that question. It really is up to their new Bulldozer processors. Gigabyte has given them a great board with witch to stage their battle against Intel. They really don’t have a better option at this time. And come to think of it neither do you.
