Other than the AMD 890GX board GA-890GPA-UD3H which we already reviewed at OCWorkbench, Gigabyte showcases 2 other futuristic AMD boards based on GA-880GMA-UD2H based on AMD 880G and and GA-890FXA-UD5 based on AMD 890FX chipset at CeBIT 2010.

The GA-880GMA-UD2H is a microATX board that is based on the upcoming AMD 880G chipset. In fact, AMD 880G chipset is not much different the AMD 785G launch a few months ago. The major difference is the integrated graphics is Radeon HD 4250 (DX10.1) instead of Radeon HD 4200 on 785G. From what we gather, it is just a higher GPU CLK but there might be some other changes as we get closer to the official launch.

This board supports the AM3 Phenom II/Athlon II with HT3. It supports up to DDR3-1800+. It uses 2oz copper PCB and UD3 classic design. It has NEC USB 3.0 chip on board with 3X USB power delivery for better compatibility and stability for USB devices.

It also include 2 full length PCIe lanes to support CrossFire X.


The GA-890FXA-UD5 is based on 890FX + SB850 chipset, a discrete chipset with no graphcis embedded inside. It is a full ATX board with 4 full length PCIe 2.0 slots on board for Quad CrossFire X. It also incorporates a UD3 design and has 4 DIMM slots supporting up to DDR3-1866+.

It also has NEC 3.0 chip on board to support USB 3.0 connector. 3X USB power is also availabel for better compatibility and extra power for USB devices.

The board also has 6 SATA 6Gbps ports supported by SB850 for RAID 0,1,5,10. There is a Jmicron controller which support 2 more SATA 3Gbps ports and 1 IDE channel.

Other features include Smart DualLAN with intelligent LAN port auto-switching and integrated powered eSATA/USB combo ports.

  1. Gigabyte has missed the 4/27/10 boat!!! MSI and ASUS have had there 890FX boards available for order several hours before this writing. According to a sales rep at Gigabyte, they have experienced “shipping issues” which resulted in a delay of approximately one week behind the rest of the world. This is a serious mistake for Gigabyte as reviews of AMDs new Phenom II X6 processors will feature motherboards offered by their competitors. Further, those of us who have delayed building systems in anticipation of this new technology will be influenced to order our equipment from manufactures who are able to handle deadlines. If this is any indication of how business is run at Gigabyte, I’m sure we are better off buying from their competition who can make it to work on time and ready to role. Shame on you Gigabyte, maybe you should take up knitting and leave the fast paced world of technology to those of us who are motivated to be on the cutting edge.

    BTW don’t let them fool you with rebuttals about how they were busy improving their product or upgrading the capacitors bla bla bla. The rep also told me that their board will be priced according to ASUSs price scheme and that the boards are more or less interchangeable with only slight differences in features.
    Go home Gigabyte… let the men handle our business.
