GIGABYTE previews Z79A-UD13 MB with 8-way SLI

Z79A-UD13_VL

Time for a quick preview of what we’ll be showing at Computex in June this year; it’s the new GA-Z79A-UD13 motherboard with 8-way SLI/CrossfireX via 4 additional PCIe bridge chips. It also features an unbelievable additional 14 SATA ports (8 from the chipset + 14 for a total of 22) from 7 Marvell controllers that can be found under the specially extended South Bridge heatsink, together with the PCIe bridge chips. Due to its extended size, we’re calling this the XXXXL-ATX form factor and are working with all your favorite case manufacturers to have chasses available at launch day.

Keep an eye on this blog, facebook and the official GIGABYTE website for more on this and other innovative products at Computex 2011.
