Gigabyte gets ready for Haswell

There’s a little over a month till the debut of Intel’s Haswell chip and the LGA1150 platform so motherboards on the new socket have started to appear here and there. Gigabyte also has a new offering – the GA-Z87X-UD3H motherboard.

As the name suggests the motherboard is based on the latest Intel Z87 chipset and supports only Haswell processors being LGA1150 only. The motherboard sports an 8-phase power connection, 24-pin and 14-pin power connectors, up to four memory modules for dual-channeled DDR3 SDRAM (up to 64 GB of memory), three PCI-E 3.0 x16 slots (x16/0/0, x8/0/x8, x8/x4/x4 configurations possible), three PCI-E 2.0 x1 slots and one PCI slot.

Connectivity has not been forgotten either – the GA-Z87X-UD3H comes with eight SATA 3.0 ports, ten USB 3.0 ports, HDMI, DisplayPort, an integrated 7.1-channeled audio codec, Gigabit Ethernet and a PS/2 port for a mouse or a keyboard.

Last but not least the GA-Z87X-UD3H comes with Gigabyte’s Ultra Durable 5 technology – thus the motherboard features an improved copper base for better stability and cooling, Black Solid Caps as well as other improvements.

The arrival of the GA-Z87X-UD3H is expected next month. Pricing is unknown.
