Gigabye GA-X79-UD5 Preview
Whenever a new technology is released there is a frantic rush to get samples out for review without having them arrive so early that less-scrupulous sites can break the release date and sometimes they arrive too late to give the full treatment to. In the case of the Gigabyte GA-X79-UD5 it was having the final touches applied to it right up to the very last minute to make sure that it's perfect when it arrives on the shelf of your local hardware emporium.
However, rather than just let it slide until we had completed all of our testing, and knowing from past experience that the UD5 is extremely popular, holding the sweet spot between the value UD3 and the premium UD7 model, we knew you'd be gagging to cast your eye over it and so we're bringing you a preview today, with a full review a little later on.
The UD5 is so fresh out the R&D department that the specifications haven't yet been formatted into the normal pretty style. We'll be covering these features as we run through the pictures, so let's get down to it.
