Want to know how much is the price of SB mobos from ASUS, Gigabyte etc

No hard prices yet but are supposed to be in line with 1156 based boards and not as pricey as 1366 ones.

Prices will be $200 above for the 1155 boards and above $300 for the 2011 boards in the beginning. Asus recently unveiled a Sandy Bridge motherboard which is expected at $350.

2011 boards are LGA2011 platform boards. They will be out later in 2011.

the LGA1155 is supposed to replace the i7, i5 & i3 CPU's of the 1156 socket...the LGA2011 is supposed to be the performance socket and will replace the 1366 socket i7's.

Here are the expected prices for the LGA1155 boards from Gigabyte. The listed price is in British pounds, which I've converted to $US based on today's rate:

Gigabyte P67A-UD3 - £99.99/$157.37
Gigabyte P67A-UD4 - £149.99/$235.97
Gigabyte P67A UD5 - £209.99/$330.33
Gigabyte P67A-UD7 - £249.99/$393.26

Of course, the $US prices are only approximate, since the exchange rate fluctuates, but it provides an idea as to roughly where the price points should be.

Ah well, looks like the US prices could be lower, at least based on Provantage's pricing:

Can't say I'm unhappy about being wrong! Curious that they have them listed as in stock, and Newegg doesn't even have them listed.

:hello:  Hey, the overclock3d.net article was including VAT (taxes) the UK prices usually include VAT.

Here is the quote from the article

So it would seem that entry level P67 boards are likely to be available from prices just shy of £100 inc VAT. Sadly you will have to pay a premium if you want a motherboard featuring Gigabyte's Matt Black theme. Regardless, the baby P67 of the range offers a feature set that caters to most people's needs. Do note however that you will be limited to 16x/4x CrossfireX.

So you can subtract the VAT (17.5%) and you get closer to 1156 prices :D 

Gigabyte P67A-UD3 - £82.49/$127.26
Gigabyte P67A-UD4 - £122.92/$189.62
Gigabyte P67A UD5 - £173.24/$267.27
Gigabyte P67A-UD7 - £206.24/$318.18

This makes me happy :D

I hope that the UD7 will be cheaper on Newegg when it's released. I wish one of the four had 3 PCIxE.

The X58, P55 lineups may see some drops after the Sandy Bridge really hit the market. No point buying the board if there is no chip to use it on!!
