GIGABYTE in black (GA-P67A-UD7 and GA-P67A-UD5 MBs at IDF 2010)
« on: September 16, 2010, 09:56:34 am »
Have a look at our new Intel 6-series chipset motherboards for future LGA 1155 Intel Core CPUs (codenamed Sandy Bridge) shown at IDF 2010 (Intel Developer Forum). After so many requests from all around the world we decided to change the colours into black.

I have to say, it looks really, really nice.  Great job on the design and colour. :)

I liked it too. The whole thing now looks the business and sort of mean 8) They should make the slots and ports etc UV reactive though. That way Gigabyte could keep the corporate colour while still appearing to be black. Nice job with the design of the heatsinks, although I did wonder if they are as efficient as the older style ones. Poor old Lsdmeasap will be unhappy though. He thought everyone would hate it.

They are probably waiting until the next generation AMD Processors are ready for release but I'm sure we'll get some black motherboards......... eventually!
Remember, when all else fails a cup of tea and a good swear will often help! It won't solve the problem but it will make you feel better.

fair enough but it does seem mobo makers are giving intel users the better looking hardware  :'(

Some of these new beta BIOS updates may not be able to flash from BIOS itself.
Please use new released version  @BIOS 2.10:
