The GIGABYTE GA-Z87X-UD7 TH is one of the highest end Z87 motherboards from GIGABYTE and will feature Thunderbolt 2.0! The heatsink is quite comparable to the Z87X-OC Force, it features the capability to run water cooling built into it! The Z87X-UD7 TH and the G1.Assassin 3 aren't available just yet, but watch for them in the coming months.
The GIGABYTE GA-Z87X-UD5 TH is launching as well here at IDF. Just in case you didn't make the guess, the TH at the end of the name is for thunderbolt.
