The GA-890XA-UD3 is a low end motherboard manufactured by Gigabyte. It is similar to another one of Gigabyte's motherboards, the GA-790-XT-USB3. Both motherboards share features with each other, such as ATI CrossFireX support (lets the user plug in two ATI GPUs in order to enhance the graphics), and AMD OverDrive technology (maximizes the capabilities of the motherboard). Despite this similar features, the GA-890XA-UD3 has some extra ones, such as Auto Unlock support, which uses the system's BIOS to enable extra cores in the CPU. This increases the performance of the computer, and lets the user run bigger applications easier. The GA-890XA-UD3 features USB 3.0 support, which allows the user to use a wide array of USB 3.0 devices with their PC. It is also 10X faster than USB 2.0, allowing for faster data transfer. The motherboard also features 3x USB power boost technology, which delivers more power to the USB ports. By giving the USB ports more power, the compatibility with devices is greatly enhanced, while also ensuring fewer voltage drops. As well as these features, the motherboard uses an AM3 Socket, and is compatible with the latest six core AMD CPUs. The motherboard can use any CPU from the Phenom II x6/Phenom II x4/Athlon II x4/790X line.
