GA X79 UD Vii
When the X79 chip set established two weeks before, entire CPU board producers jumped on that bandwagon as they have observed severe e-peen possible always since they got their first Sandy bridge-E processors. Entire of them established a instead sizable amount of X79 CPU boards in different shapes and sizes.
Gigabyte as well established various X79 CPU boards similar to the G1.asassin, the UD3, UD5 and certain... the UD7. That previous one we will be expecting at now. A very full CPU board I must say, with all types of gadgets and fresh appearance.
The X79-UD7 utilizes a black PCB with orange color system and integrated advanced overclocking characteristics. You will observe after on in the review that GB positioned a series of voltage read points, controls for setting the processor ratio and BCLK on the fly, as good as dip-switches to alter the PWM frequency in the less right corner of the board.
Energy to the central processing unit is delivered by a 20-phase VRM that utilizes POSCAP less-profile capacitors, when the extra now needed through IV-way GPU settings is delivered by a serials of angled SATA power plugs positioned on the less side of the board.
You will see 4 PCI Express x16 slots, the stays of the extension choice present in the X79-UD7 add 3 PCIe x1 ports, 4 SATA 3Gbps slots, as good as a good 6 SATA 6Gbps ports. The rear I/O bracket shows a couple of comprehensive Serial Bus 3.0 ports and 7.1-channel sound with digital S/PDIF out, but too a particular OC key and a CMOS reset switch.
Two more Universal Serial Bus 3.0 ports are in build by an on-board header that is positioned right among the key DIMM sockets and the BIOS POST screen. And yeah too a PCIE 1x wireless card is added.
Anyway, head on above to the following page where we will talk about the X79 chip set, the respective GB X79 UD7 example. Then we will throw a nice picture-shoot and a benchmark suite at the products and acquire an indication what function is similar to with the Intel Core i7-3960X and X79 Platform.
We will first begin off with a bit of an explanation about the fresh processors that ignited the X79 CPU board chip set. If you read the establish review then you familiar it is entire about Sandy Bridge-E, the entire fresh "enhanced" slash "enthusiast" edition of what fairly much in a nutshell is the Sandy Bridge architecture, now with few fresh characteristics included and few others stripped away.
Merely put, you assume entire the good elements from Sandy Bridge, rather include 2 cores, a slightly heightened L3 cache and include a pinch of quad-channel storage. There is 1 exception to the rule, one Core i7 Sandy Bridge-E central processing unit that will stay a quad-core processor.
Intel has declared 3 Sandy Bridge-E class processors, called the Core i7-3960X, the Core i7-3930K, and the Core i7-3820. Every will have dissimilar clock frequencies and a slightly altered L3 cache. The Core i7-3820 is a quad core processor, the other 2 are six-core processors.
