    Yeap, R means RAID Capable in Gigabyte model names.

    For others who may wonder what the rest is sometime in the future, here is some of the name scheme >>

    P version boards have TPM Chips. Here is some more info on the name schemes for anyone who may look up this info later >>>

    * GA: Gigabyte

    * E: Energy saving technology
    * P45: Chipset

    * D: Ultra Durable 2 (low rds mosfet, ferrite core chokes, all solid capacitors)

    * UD3 Ultra Durable 3 (2oz Copper in PCB, low rds mosfet, ferrite core chokes, all solid capacitors)

    * L: Lite "lite" or entry level. For example, the DS3L has only 3-phase power or another example Only one PCIe x16

    * R: RAID The R version(s) have RAID, & are "mainstream" level

    * S3 Stands for Speed-Smart-Safe

    * S4: Adds silent pipe cooling

    * S5: Includes smart backup (Including all of S4's features)

    * P: Includes TPM. The P version(s)are "pro" or high level, with more ports etc (P45 DS3R, DS4P, DS5, DQ6 have TPM support)

    * Q: Gigabyte Flagship product with all features included

    Yes in deed, in fact you can see in the specification, UD3 has SB ICH10, and UD3R has SB ICH10R-raid.
