OC3D Review: Gigabyte EX58-UD4P Motherboard

The EX58-UD5 impressed us in our last Gigabyte review. Can the UD4P, the UD5's cheaper brother, make an equally strong impression? Find out in our latest review...

Lol i have the UD5 and its extreamly similar looking and believe me when i say its uglier in real life... Saying that i Picked up my UD5 from Novatech for like £205 for some reason that was the price so i clicked add to basket ... The UD5 is a great board...

Good review. Always enjoy reading ya mobo reviews.

Just a shame none are really pulling away from the pack. I'm sure on prevoius generations you would always get at least 1 or 2 that would be a little bit apart from the others.

Yeah I must agree with that point. Previous generations were always a mixed batch though with 780i, P45 and X48. All the boards for i7 we have tested thus far are all X58 and so have the same QPI bus and ICH10R controller.

Hopefully P55 won't be too far away so we can throw them into the mix.

Comments in the top right hand corner?

I think Gigabyte have done really well on the x58's, certainly catering for those on a budget...

Correct. Really there isn't that much of a point, especially if ur on a budget.

Think we're all a little harsh on the color scheme. Particularly as it's low score for slot coloring brings the average down to such an extent.

Got another of these gigabyte mobos on wednesday, and I'm getting more and more impressed with them the more I use them.

As a sidenote, I don't think we'll see P55.

Onboard stuff for these mobos across the spectrum could do with more scrutiny. The ALC889A seems to be a damn good audio setup in it's own right. A few design flaws for my liking, but for a 1 pc setup it's pretty impressive. Nics are offering teaming and carry with them some bios testing features.
