Gigabyte is next in line to exhibit its product readiness for Intel's next-generation "Sandy Bridge" socket LGA-1155 processors that release next year, with the company showing off its high-end GA-P67A-UD7 motherboard. Resembling the GA-P55A-UD7 in many aspects, this board features a 24-phase VRM. Apart from the Intel P67 PCH, an NVIDIA nForce 200 bridge chip multiplies the processor's 16 PCI-E 2.0 lanes intro 32 PCI-E 2.0 lanes, which split up between four PCI-Express 2.0 x16 slots, depending on how they are populated. The monolithic VRM+chipset cooler has a water-block for better cooling. Other expansion slots include one PCI-E x1, and two PCI. The usual plethora of connectivity features, such as dual Gigabit Ethernet, USB 3.0, SATA 6 Gb/s, eSATA, and 7.1 channel HD audio, are also present. Expect this board to be out in 2011.

awesome looking board but I cant believe they are introducing at least one new socket, possibly two with sandy bridge. People complain yet still buy, hell maybe AMD should follow suit and make more money...who knows.

i cant believe they are keeping the same socket design just taking 1 pin out, they do it so you HAVE to buy new cpu and board combo. sad really. they should have learned something with 775.

It's weird, wasn't socket 2011 slated for an earlier release than LGA 1155? Maybe I'm misremembering the announced schedule for the socket's release.

Maybe it's just a performance lead thing, AMD cycled through sockets quickly when they were ahead, now maybe intel is pulling the same routine.

um don't act surprised Intel is the king of socket changes. i know at one point amd was but in this world they shouldn't be. Its pretty silly. Also there are more "revision"s of motherboards (the same one) to most 2 on amd side. Especially when something new launches. There shits getting confusing. Just get an 890FX call it a night.

Its not a just happening now lol... last 3 years and counting now and one of the AMD "sockets" was a special edition. The other thing is most of them were backwards compatible. Too many real advantages.

Yet, also slower. Depends on what you want, max performance, or budget oriented. Most of my boards don't see but 1 or 2 cpus before I get the itch to upgrade my board anyway. So if I planned to buy a new mobo with my cpu, what difference does it make whether I buy MAD or Intel? I'm still buying a board and cpu together either way.

unfortunately not everyone thinks that way (few and far) also it wasn't a flame it was a direct response and a reality. Flaming wont fix reality. This has nothing to do with u wasting money repeatedly lol.

The only people this effects are those that build their own computers. Those that upgrade often because they like to stay on top of things, and those that hold onto a build for a few years at a time are not effected by this, as they generally change their board with a cpu at some point. Buying a new cpu with a new board is still buying a new cpu and new board, socket doesn't matter. Heck, many of the Phenom II owners here have already bought more than one board.

There was no flaming in my post at all.

And it's not a waste of money if it gives me what I want.
