Gigabyte plans budget motherboard for the FX-9590

The Taiwanese motherboard maker Gigabyte has announced it works on a budget-oriented motherboard that will support the ultra-high clock speed AMD FX-9590, FX-9370 and FX-8770 processors.

The motherboard will be known as 970A-UD3P and as the name suggests will be based on the AMD 970 Northbridge and the AMD SB950 Southbridge. The board will use high quality components that meet the company’s Ultra Durable 4 Classic standards and will come with a 10-phase power supply system. The hardware specs of the board include four DDR3 DIMM slots for DDR3-2133 memory (up to 64 GB), two PCI-E x16 2.0 slots, two PCI slots, three PCI-E x1 slots, six SATA 3.0 ports, a Gigabit Ethernet controller and integrated 5.1-channeled HD Audio. On the back panel the 970A-UD3P will have two PS/2 ports, six USB 2.0 ports, 2+2 USB 2.0 ports, a RJ-45 jack and three 3.5mm audio jacks.

The Gigabyte 970A-UD3P is compatible with Windows XP/Vista/7/8 and comes with Norton Internet Security out of the box. The board will cost no more than USD 100.
