1 out of 5 eggs Number of PCIE Slots is misleading 03/28/2014

This review is from: GIGABYTE GA-990FXA-UD3 AM3+ AMD 990FX + SB950 SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 ATX AMD Motherboard

Pros: I've had this board for a couple months now and its been a lot of hassle. I bought it to plug 6 GPUs into. While there are a lot of slots, the board in reality doesn't actually have the bandwidth to support them. I've tried running the board with just one GPU and it still runs about 12% slower than any other motherboard I have plugged them into. When you add more GPUS the board bottlenecks very quickly. Some will only run at 50% of expected speed.

Cons: Number of slots is misleading. The board actually doesn't have enough bandwidth to run them all at full speed simultaneously.
