I'll have to take another look at this month's CPU magazine as I think there's a writeup about that board. There's at least an article about USB 3.0 and SATA 6GB with regards to that board.

I'll have to see what it says about the SATA 6GB with regards to PCI lanes and post back here later. :)

My wish for USB4 would be to make the connector ROUND. That way when you are inserting the USB device you do not need light or to see the USB port. Currently if you have to reach behind a computer to plug in a USB device you don't know if it goes up, down, right or left and it is an extreme pain to figure it out without seeing the port. This gets worse when you have to completely remove a computer from a desk so you can see the port and discover that this machine has it upside down when you could have sworn it was right side up. UGH!

OK, speaking about the Gigabyte P55A-UD6, on Page 52 of January’s issue of CPU (Computer Power Users) magazine, paragraph 2, second sentence…

You won’t see the benefit of additional storage throughput if you’re using mechanical hard drives. It’ll take the next generation of compatible SSDs to show what a faster interface can do. But Intel isn’t planning on adding 6Gbps support to its chipset lineup anytime soon, so Gigabyte’s inclusion of the technology is a nice touch.
The board also features an NEC USB 3.0 controller and the article states in paragraph 4 that…

Both high-bandwidth extras do add a slight complication. Because they’re tied into the processor’s integrated PCI-E links, enabling 6Gbps SATA and USB 3.0 drops the primary graphics card slot to x8 signaling speeds and disables the secondary slot. Go with a fast single-card graphics card,
So, there you have it, according to January’s issue of CPU magazine. Looks like there might be an issue with the early versions of these boards (USB 3.0 and SATA 6)
