GIGABYTE P55A-UD6 (P55 Express) Motherboard - The Box and What's Inside

The P55-UD6 from GIGABYTE was impressive, but today we have the upgraded model with SATA-III and USB 3.0 support. Let's give it a burn.

As far as the box is concerned, there isn't much changed apart from a few new logos on the top. The new 333 logo which we will explain later and the new board model number are the major changes, while the colour scheme stays the same.

GIGABYTE places a lot of its marketing hype on the back of the box. Some explanations of the features including the new 333 design are there, along with a colour photo of the board with box-out info.

For the documentation side of things, GIGABYTE has gone crazy here. There are four user manuals in total. You get the standard motherboard user manual, one for the Smart6 technology, one for the Smart TPM technology and a multilingual setup manual. The Included DVD comes with drivers, software and gadgets for Windows XP, Windows Vista and now Windows 7 in both x86 and x64 variants.

GIGABYTE's cable bundle hasn't changed from the P55-UD6. There are four SATA data cables, an IDE cable and an I/O shield making up the main components. All of the cables are SATA-III compliant, so you can plug and go out of the box at full speed (providing your hard disks are 6Gb/s equipped.

Once again, the very same cable bundle is in place with the additional eSATA expansion bracket cover, cables and SLI bridge cable.
