The latest motherboard to make it off of Steve’s test bench is the Gigabyte X58A-UD3R, a $210 LGA 1366 board with a nice set of features including Gigabyte’s Power of 3 set.   The back plate is a gadget lovers dream, with 4 USB 2.0 ports, a a pair of USB 3.0, standard and mini Firewire ports and even a clear CMOS button.  Inside you will find a pair of PCIe 16x slots and a pair of 8x slots that share bandwidth with the 16x slots.  Overall the board provides moderate overclocking ability and serious features for a price that is quite reasonable for an X58 board, but you can draw your own conclusions about it after you read the full article.

“Gigabyte packed tons of great features, bundled accessories, as well as applications and utilities into their lowest end X58A board. While the board is priced at around $210 with shipping, this is on par with the current market climate, but that doesn’t mean consumers might be a little apprehensive at purchasing these fairly expensive parts in the current economic environment.”
