Bah!.... Humbug!

Joking aside, some pretty nice looking boards now all we need is some info from AMD about the "Bulldozer" CPU's to go with them. Nice to see that Gigabyte are making the higher end boards in black and I really can't wait to get my grubby little mitts on one of these babies!

What, only one!! ???

I thought I would be getting a sample of each design for full testing and review along with a selection of CPU's.

Hi there,

should be available in the UK from early June (next couple of weeks). The first to hit the shelves will be the UD3 followed soon after by the UD5 & UD7.

Meh, I can run skype on my current phone :P

Its just that the phone Im looking at gets released at about the same time, but the manufacturer is kinda famous for delaying products (and updates) anyway.

Lets see on how much money I have and what comes out first, bearing in mind I will also have to buy some DDR3 memory for the board (assuming I can still use a SATA 2 3gb/s drive)

The drive shouldn't be a problem at all as they are backwards compatible.

To be honest I'm not sure but I have asked Gigabyte the question.
For the UD5 & UD7 I guess they will be around the £150 - £180 mark based on cost of similar 8 series boards but, as I say, this is just a guess.

Still, on the bright side, once they hit the shelves we will all know how much they cost and until then we can just dream about owning one!  :D

Just seen these boards available as pre-order items in the UK at the following prices:

GA-990XA-UD3 - £99.95
GA-990FXA-UD5 - £169.99
GA-990FXA-UD7 - £209.99

this is at AriaPC more info here: http://www.aria.co.uk/Products/Components/Motherboards/AMD+AM3%2B+%28900+Chipset%29/

I'm sure there will be other suppliers showing these boards soon and you might find them at better prices elsewhere....... hopefully.  :P
