With Intel's upcoming Sandy Bridge architecture right around the corner, motherboard manufacturers are obviously quite excited about showing off their supporting products. Unfortunately, we canít discuss price positioning or performance of the processors themselves but this will be the first of a number of quick articles detailing the functions and layouts of these boards.

As usual, Gigabyte will have a massive lineup of P67 products available right off the bat. Some will naturally cater to the upper crust of society with a rich feature set and a price point to match but there will be several other SKUs which will balance feature sets, performance and affordability. The P67A-UD4 falls into this latter category with dual card SLI and Crossfire support alongside USB 3.0 and SATA 6 Gbps ports for ultra fast data access. Gigabyteís higher-end P67A-UD7 meanwhile builds upon the expectations of enthusiasts by offering an overclocker-friendly BIOS, expanded power regulation and 3-way GPU support. Naturally, you can expect all of these features to come with a relatively high price as well.

Gigabyte has been known to release some of the best motherboards around but their P67 lineup will have things that set them apart from past products. To begin with, this is the first time we will see black PCBs in lieu of the usual cacophony of colours normally seen on their boards. Letís see what else Gigabyte is about to bring to the highly competitive motherboard market.
