So far ... I can only say that the numeric portion ... the "3" in "ud3h" differentiates it's cost-point, amongst the other boards of the SAME chipset/series ... The "3" boards are mainstream and the "7" boards are enthusiast.
While the "H" may always be present when HDMI port present, there are several bords that seem not to conform ... i.e. ... Port is present but "H" is not.
For now ... I'm guessing the third letter is a (more or less) "arbitrariy/incremental" sub-mod differentiator which may or may not be attributed to "feature-type".
My reason for asking (wanting to know) should be obvious ... It would help me understand "SPECS-at-a-GLANCE" (as well as price point) and would/could give lots of insight, just at a glance ... Sure wish some engineer from Gigabyte could chime-in and lay it all out (if there is anything logical to "the system") ...
... Anyway ... since the NUMERIC DIGIT clearly DOES have a consistent meaning, ... I thot the rest of that section might "say" more.
Thanks for playing ... I'm gonna let this thread hang for some little while more ... then I'll shunt the points to whomever seemed closest ... I still have not really "worked" the newegg search functions "all out" ... yet.
7the UD3 stands for having the UD3 heatpipe system. UD7 boards also have the sam UD3 heatpipe system but I think they first made an UD3 board and then to make namegiving fairly easy they just give the better boards the names UD5 en UD7. but the UD3 definetly originates from that heat pipe system.
I don't think there are any current intel boards on the market with the h. As for the r if this chart for the p45 boards still holds true for their current boards then this should answer your question:
which mean the R stands for raid and the P stands for performance

nWell, 007, here is the sting ...
n... 007 WAS first ... 007 was correct in what (little) was said ... gets prize for "first response" and "first correct response" ... BUT ... sigh ...
