The great granddaddy of all PC hardware sites, Tom’s Hardware, has just published an article comparing seven X79 boards in the $260-320 price segment, including very own X79-UD3 board. Reviewer Thomas Soderstrom puts all seven boards through their paces comparing overall performance, features sets, overclocking prowess and value for money. We’re absolutely delighted to see that our X79-UD3 has been selected for Tom’s prestigious Approved Award.
“The least-expensive of today’s contenders, the X79-UD3 still includes a standard set of mid-market enthusiast features, such as front- and rear-panel USB 3.0, eSATA, and two additional SATA 6Gb/s ports via a third-party controller. Gigabyte goes one step further, though, by endowing this product with four-way SLI support, rather than the three-way capability we'd expect to find on a more affordable platform”
Available on New Egg for around $270, Tom’s Hardware is clearly very impressed with the wealth of high-end features on this board combined with a very competitive price point.
