Gigabyte P55A-UD6 Review And Testing
by sno.lcn

Gigabyte, as we all know, was one of the first motherboard manufacturers to roll out a solid implementation of USB 3 and SATA 3 in their products. In fact, Gigabyte now has an “A” option for most of their products that identifies boards with those features. But since the devices capable of utilizing these higher speeds are still out of my reach, USB 3 and SATA 3 testing will be included in part 2 of this review. This part will focus on something I’m more concerned with anyway, and that’s overclocking performance.

The board looks very similar to the original P55-UD6. The obvious differences are the new features as illustrated by various decals; SATA 6GB/s, USB 3.0, etc. The chokes are also glossy on this board instead of flat black (or dark grey) on most boards. The P55A-UD6 also uses a LOTES socket rather than Foxconn.
