Apparently, Intel has some more of those CPU doohickeys coming out early next year, and motherboard makers are eagerly teasing their matching products. We already saw some of MSI's and Biostar's Sandy Bridge mobos earlier this year, and now, Gigabyte has sent us images of... well, what certainly looks like its entire 6-series motherboard lineup.
You'll find all the images in the gallery below. Pictured items include two microATX designs, the H67M_D2 and H67MA_UD2H, as well as one full-sized ATX offering with integrated graphics support, the 67A_UD3H. I suspect most of you will be more interested in the plain-jane ATX mobos, though—the P67A_UD3, P67A_UD3P, P67A_UD4, P67A_UD5, and P67A_UD7.
There isn't a whole lot of novelty to be found on those new circuit boards, unless fancy heatsinks and preposterous numbers of PCI Express x16 slots still amaze you. I'm surprised to see the higher-end P67-based offerings devoid of Gigabyte's trademark blue-and-white color scheme, though. Apparently, black is the new "in" color in Taiwan.
