Gigabyte Rolls out the 990XA-UD3 R5 Socket AM3+ Motherboard

Gigabyte has announced that it has recently added a new socket AM3+ motherboard to its lineup. The motherboard is set to support all AMD AM3+ FX processors and AM3 Athlon/Phenom II CPUs, while also supporting 2-way SLI or Crossfire.

The company has based the motherboard on the AMD 990X chipset, featuring a SB950 southbridge chip. Realtek takes the center stage in High Definition Audio Codecs for the 990XA-UD3 R5, coming with a Realtek ALC1150 codec chip, which is said to deliver exceptional audio listening experience with up to 115dB SNR. Also, Realtek has added an isolated audio circuit to its chip in order to provide the best possible audio quality.

The 990XA-UD3 R5 is said to provide 2x Copper PCBs in order to deliver enough power trace paths between components to handle higher than normal power loads and remove heat from critical CPU power delivery area. The motherboard also comes with two PCI-Express 2.0 x16 slots (8x / 8x), one PCIe 2.0 x16 (x4 and towed to the southbridge), one PCIe 2.0 x1 slot and two legacy PCI slots.

Gigabyte is said to have made the motherboard available at a recommended price of $125.
