GIGABYTE Ships All New B3 6 Series Motherboards

Taipei, Taiwan - February 25, 2011 - GIGABYTE TECHNOLOGY Co., Ltd, a leading manufacturer of motherboards, graphics cards and other computing hardware solutions, today announced that they have begun shipping the totally redesigned GIGABYTE 6 series motherboards featuring the new Intel® B3 stepping chipsets. Motherboards are expected to be available as early as next week, when shipments start to clear customs offices in markets around the world.

The new B3 version GIGABYTE 6 Series motherboards have been totally redesigned and renamed so that they can easily be distinguished from the older B2 versions through the signature "B3" at the end of the model name. For example, the GA-P67A-UD7 has been replaced by the GA-P67A-UD7-B3and the GA-H67A-UD3H has been replaced by the GA-H67A-UD3H-B3.

Cool! I was thinking about building myself a new machine as I am growing a bit tired of the Dells, but thought I had to wait till April. This is good news. I also read somewhere that ASUS has also begun shipping.

Why are the boards for 1155 so much cheaper than 1366 (at least on newegg)? Shouldn't Sandybridge be more expensive than the previous generation?

Probably because the better boards are not out, unless they are trying to repair their reputation.
