The 990FXA-UD5 ships with a minimalist accessory package including user manual and installation guide, software and driver CD, I/O backplate, two-way ribbon and three-way bridge for SLI, and four SATA cables. There is also a case badge and sticker inside the CD sleeve.

As we've noted before, the 990FX is basically identical to last year's 890FX chipset when it comes to supported features. What is new is support for the upcoming AM3+ Bulldozer processors, official DDR3-1866 support, and the addition of nVidia SLI support along with AMD CrossFireX.
