Default Gigabyte X58A-UD3 Review

We at Bjorn3D.com going to be looking at one of Gigabyte's motherboards that received SATA 3.0, USB 3.0, and Gigabyte's very own USB Power III(Gigabytes 333 Design). Gigabyte's X58A-UD3 motherboard is one of Gigabyte's most affordable X58A offerings, coming in at $209 USD. The one area that the P55 chipset is hindered, is the amount of PCI-E lanes it has. The P55 chipset supports only 16x PCI-E lanes. That means when running two cards capable of 16x PCI-E each, have to resort to running at 8x each due to the 16x total PCI-E lane bandwidth then the added SATA 3.0 and USB 3.0. There have been workarounds on some P55 based boards but the price comes in with a performance hit. What makes this capability so nice on an enthusiast class chipset, is there are no limitations. We can have our cake & ice cream, and eat it too.
