Default Gigabyte's P55A-UD7 - The Most Packed P55 Board?

Are you looking for the most feature-rich P55-based motherboard possible? With its P55A-UD7, Gigabyte looks like its up to the challenge. In addition to the usual slew of features we've come to expect, the UD7 includes a built-in waterblock, a Silent-Pipe add-on, 24 power phases, SATA and USB 3.0, four PCI-E 16x slots, and more.

Smile error on the conclusion page of this review

"As you would hope to see on such a pricey motherboard, both ATI's CrossFireX and NVIDIA's SLI are supported in full here, although due to the limitations of the P55 chipset, two GPUs in a multi-GPU configuration will be downgraded to 8x PCI-E bandwidth. "

I believe that this board has support for 16x / 16x in sli and crossfire as it uses a controller to get around the p55 chipset limitations.

As per the gigabyte website it supports 16x / 16x. As far as I know it's one of the few p55 boards that do not have the 8x / 8x limitation for dual gpu solution.

Thanks for pointing that out! I'm not quite sure I should settle on just the specs page since it can be wrong on occasion, so I'll shoot Gigabyte an e-mail and get to the bottom of it. Good eye
