Written by Nick Farell

Can't get enough of them
Gigabyte can't get enough of its AM3+ line and has added three more listings. The boards have the catchy titles AMD 990FX-powered GA-990FXA-UD3 and GA-990FXA-D3 and the AMD 990X-based GA-990XA-UD3.

All of them have an ATX form, support AM3 and AM3+ (FX Series) processors, are equipped with the SB950 southbridge. They ship with four DDR3-2000 memory slots, multiple PCI-Express slots allowing for SLI or CrossFireX setups, Gigabit Ethernet, 7.1 channel audio, six SATA 6.0 Gbps ports, DualBIOS.

The GA-990FXA-D3 has two USB 3.0 connects while the others have four. The GA-990FXA-UD3 and GA-990XA-UD3 also include two eSATA 6.0 Gbps ports and have an Ultra Durable 3 design.

The should be in the shops in the next couple of weeks.

With the increasing numbers of AM3+ boards since the start of may and the 900 series chipset making official appearances on manufacturers websites days before the CPU is planned to be released, I'd say Bulldozer is on course for release next week (7th June still?), ASUS are supposed to be demoing Bulldozer with their Crosshair V Formula motherboard at Computex tomorrow, if Bulldozer wasn't ready due to performance problems then I'd doubt AMD would allow ASUS demo a defective piece of silicon

There is always a possibility it is a yield problem. Fermi anyone? New architecture on new process+massive delays? Sounds like Fermi to me.

Fingers crossed it will drop in June.

Fermi delays were announced a few months before release and kept on delaying, we're a week before launch, if there was a delay then it would be bigger news than just rumors, especially after the $1 Billion Intel recall, also I'd expect something official from AMD, not seen anything yet, infact, they're on sale now in china

They probably found a bug or more... good thing they caught it in time or we might have seen a launch with buggy CPU's. Let them take their time and work out every problem these CPU's have so that we, the beneficiary of these products, won't have to endure the warranty process or worse some up-tight distributors that won't budge.

Also we've seen in the past how hard the media went don't on AMD for having that (rather unimportant for most of us) TBL bug, but then Intel's Nehalem had it as well and most of intel fanboys didn't knew it even existed.

I really hope Buldo will have gr8 performance for good of all PC world, if not Intel is gonna screw us all with his prices :(

Good news, can't wait to see Bulldozer in action in June 2011. For me it's either ASUS or MSI... Gigabyte way too slow with Bios releases = No thank you...

Asus? I'd rather have late BIOS that actually works. Too many times Asus has screwed up simple stuff like memory dividers, or Cool N Quite voltage levels.

Always pictures of Asus products but not even a link to a different website for Gigabyte?

Well they do have them listed on the Gigabyte website at least with pictures. Your linkage good sirs...

What I like is that since 990FX is the top chipset for AMD that it looks like they will be affordable versions...not that AMD motherboards, even the higher end ones, have ever been stupid expensive compared to say Intel motherboards.

Not worried about bulldozer just yet.My 6 core 1055T will happily sit in one of these boards for now.I have one GTX460 which I can add a second one to make a Cheap SLI rig capable of GTX580 beating graphics. .This then would also gives a nice upgrade path if Bulldozer turns out to be any good.
Sounds like a plan to me. ;-)
