AMD’s new chipset is being reviewed at [H]ard|OCP in the form of the GIGABYTE 890GPA-UD3H. You have an AMD 890GX Northbridge paired with the AMD SB850 Southbridge. Not too many people are excited about the onboard graphics offered by the 890GX but the southbridge does have features of interest, namely the native support for USB 3.0 as well as SATA 6G. Not all was loved about this board, for instance Gigabyte’s continued insistence on hiding ‘advanced’ BIOS features behind a secret keystroke but overall they really liked this board.
