Why the sudden interest of reviving the 970 chipset?
It is because they have found a nice niche in the market. Before they released their 970 Gaming Motherboard there were no performance options for the 970 chipset. Shortly after seeing MSI's success, ASRock also decided to jump in and recently released a premium 970 board that even included M.2. These boards have been outselling nearly all other 970 boards combined on Newegg recently.

Gigabyte 970UD3 and UD3P have been on the market for a long time and why not do it with the 990FX chipset instead.

If it has 8+2 phase power (which it appears to) and is around the price of the UD3/UD3P I guess it'll get my recommendation for people whose AM3 motherboard broke or who are dead set on an AMD build.
