Intel’s X58 chipset has appeared in various guises on a fair few mainboards since its launch. Why would Gigabyte want to bring another X58 mainboard to the already-saturated market? For SuperSpeed USB and SATA 6Gb/s, of course!
The Gigabyte X58A-UD3R sample we took hold of is just what you’d get off the store shelves of your local computer hardware retailer, and purchasing it from a shop/online store is probably the simplest way to get your hands on one. The bunch of us here didn’t have things that easy; we had to snatch it from the hands of our local distribution rep who wanted it for his own mean-machine. Depicting the violent struggle that ensued would probably bring more page hits from your inner sadist, Mean Reader, but that is not our intention right here at VR-Zone.
