Gigabyte 880GMA-UD2H Motherboard


AMD 880G north bridge chip has 22 PCI Express x1 lanes (the same number used on AMD 870 and AMD 890GX chipsets), with seven internal engines to control them (AMD 890GX has eight engines). The Gigabyte 880GMA-UD2H comes with two PCI Express x16 slots (one working at x16 and one at x4), one PCI Express x1 slot and one standard PCI slot. As you can see in Figure 2, the second x16 PCI Express slot is too close to the first one, meaning that if you install a dual-slot video card in the first PCI Express x16 slot you will "kill" the second one.
