New UD7, which would appear to be the current, or atleast future highest end motherboard for gigabyte. Nice looking board, really like the black+ gold/orange. Here are more, with specs:

Still have some baby blue boards, but as far as i can see, most enthusiasts will be getting black ones. You have the "covered" Sabertooth:



And why not throw in a Biostar:



Along with your standard ROG:



And we have another board using Lucid Hydra...ugly board at that :lol: 



And the new MSI, with OC Genie 2:


G-55


G-65

Those 2 MSI are obviously more middle end, high end would be G-85 or around that. Whats interesting is most of these boards, or most higher end ones, will sport 4 PCI 3.0 Lanes. Not PCI 2.0 or PCI 2.1 according to Intel and most sites. This gives it 2x the bandwidth amongst other things. So even though Sandy Bridge, or more specifically P67 only has 16 lanes, and therefore 4 would operate at x4 each, x4 on PCI 3 appears to be equivalent to x8 on PCI 2.0, which is right where you see the border between performance loss and no performance loss.

All Sandy Bridge CPU's are scheduled for socket 1155. Ivy Bridge, or whats suppose to be socket 1365 (could be something else) is later in the year into next year. But in short, i7 2600 is on 1155.

do you think SB is a big step up? how much of a performance increase are you looking at say compare the i5 760 and the i5 2500?

Clock for clock, SB is about 10% faster, but they also have 10%+ faster clocks, so at stock speeds, id say about 20% faster.

what about mATX sizes.?


The "H" sockets will most likely be mostly mATX. Just like they are now.
