With the recent introduction of USB3 and SATA 6 Gb/s the 790X chipset was really showing its age. Today we have Gigabyte's update to the 790X platform. This new board supports USB3. This drastically improves the transfer speeds of USB devices that use the technology. This also future proofs the board a little bit. Since AMD has just released their 890GX chipset, this seems a bit late.
Physically speaking this board is not that different from a 890GX. It supports DDR3 and USB3. Since this board is based on the SB750, the SATA 6 Gb/s interface is not standard. Thus this board lacked SATA 6 Gb/s support, but thats not that bad considering that unless you are going to use a SATA 6 Gb/s SSD the SATA 6 Gb/s interface is not that beneficial. This certainly makes the board an attractive buy for someone planning on using SATA 2 drives looking for USB3 support. Lets take a closer look at what else is on this board.
