I have inquired here in shop they have told me newer 
board in

(change in one letter `D' to `S')      

So I wanted to know if I have to purchase `GIGABYTE_GA-MA785GMT-US2H'
as `GIGABYTE_GA-MA785GMT-UD2H' is not available, Could it be easy
to get coreboot in it as `GIGABYTE_GA-MA785GMT-UD2H' have been already
supported, might be it is a newer version of `GIGABYTE_GA-MA785GMT-UD2H'?

Thanks Alex, Scott and Coreboot for detailed answers.
