Specs-wise, their top 2 models are pretty nice. There are enough features to distinguish the Crosshair from the Sabertooth. Now the only thing left to show are the naked boards themselves. I feel a hard-on coming :eek:

all AM3b socket boards should be using UEFI now same as Intel

kinda sad they dont have a typical bland 990fx board like previous gen i really dont like paying out the ass for a motherboard, that has 50 features i dont want, i just need dual x16x16 speeds and nothing more. Looks like ill be buying Gigabyte again this time as well.

I have to agree with you,My 79t deluxe has served me well,But i hope Gigabyte has black pcb this time around like the p67 boards.I`m not interested in the Saber-tooth with all the plastic crap all over it,And the Cross is a nice board but $$$ is my issue.Hopefully Gigabyte has one under the $200 range like there old ud5 boards.

Answer Romain numerals so V =5

Only 8+2 VRMS on the top end, and 6+2 on the midrange, isn't this a downgrade from the previous gen?

Talk about non-contextual, that doesn't make sense here. Obviously these boards don't have 5 epu switches and what not.

they will be the new bios (im not sure about the lower ones but the new bios should just be normal now) they will have some standard version if they do undoubtedly the CH SB and PRO already have it. (by lower i mean lower than the ones shown there are still other 900 series chips)

Also The killer nic / Xifi sound that's sold with the black edition rampage will be sold separately in a while. (if that's what your looking for)

Gigabyte G1 line is not exclusive to Intel at least not that i know of. If everything goes as it should.
There would be a G1 990FX 3X crossfire, and G1 990FX 4X crossfire. (Green and black)
And there would be a standard 970 or "pro" (matched up with ASUS pro) competitor at 2X crossfire. (BLUE/ Black/ Silver)
Anything lower will be MATX ect.

And as for the G1 being under 200 im not quite sure of that mainly because its new and its new. Your better off going for the
970/990X (pro competitor mentioned above) but it should still have the pcb you want.
But then again its just speculation

i have a rev 3.1 gigabyte 890gpa-ud3h, and it does not have uefi, even though it has an AM3b socket.

it's also only a 4+1 phase power design, and all of these are at least 4+2. hmm...

Yours wouldn't have the U bios regardless. They will be on 900s for now if they drop them to something lower it would be after that. they aren't on any current or past 800 AMD boards.

Looking good. Like them all so far.. now lets see these boards!


And lets see if they release a working Intel driver for the Intel LAN on the Crosshair V. Was a bitch to get going without BSODs on the Crosshair IV Extreme.

Im liking the specs. If only I could afford the crosshair.

Just hope that zambezi is worth the wait otherwise a 2500k is looking appealing.

I guess so, the Sabertooth sounds like the better board, to me. Longer warranty? Oh, it IS the better board. OK.
