With all of the attention being given to the entry level Intel Core i7 and i5 processors it’s easy to overlook the insanely powerful set of features found on the LGA 1366 platform, thankfully some companies jolt us awake from time to time.

The Gigabyte GA-X58A-UD7 Motherboard tacks on USB 3.0 and SATA 6G support to the general awesomeness that is the Intel X58 chipset suite of features. Benchmark Reviews has the details:

Performance is further enhanced by utilizing SLI/Triple-SLI and CrossFireX/TriFire video card sets for high-performance graphics. Overclockers can use either quick or expert settings to reach their optimal clock speeds, and BIOS options are superior to others we’ve tested lately. Only socket LGA1366 X58-Express motherboards support Intel’s Extreme Edition (EE) Core-i7 processors, and according to Intel’s roadmap the future code-named “Gulftown” six-core Westmere chip will be included with support on the Gigabyte GA-X58A-UD7 motherboard. At the time of this writing firmware version F5 already includes Gulftown processor support, along with numerous system memory enhancements.

Impressive performance and ready for the 6-core CPUs of the future…yep that’s difficult to ignore.
