The GA-790FXTA-UD5 is a middle-end motherboard from Gigabyte. It shares many similarities with another motherboard from Gigabyte, the GA-790XT-USB3. Both of these motherboards support six core AMD CPUs, and both have support for USB 3.0. However, the GA-790FXTA-UD5 has support for Dolby Home Theater technology (enhances sound quality), which the GA-790XT-USB3 lacks. The GA-790FXTA-UD5 features 3x USB power boost technology, which gives extra power to USB devices. This allows the motherboard to enhance device compatibility, by regulating the full voltage range's output, opening up a wider selection of USB devices. It also features ATI CrossFireX support, which allows up to two ATI graphics cards to be plugged into the motherboard at once. This greatly enhances the graphics of the user's computer, making video run smoother, and allowing applications that are heavy on resources (such as PC games) run with better visuals. As well as these, the motherboard also combines the USB and eSATA ports, which allows the user to use both USB and eSATA devices in the same port, without any additional power usage.
