Gigabyte to Release a Second, WindForce-Cooled GeForce GTX 660

Gigabyte is currently preparing some more Kepler cards including a stock-clocked GeForce GTX 660 that comes equipped with the WindForce 2X cooler featuring a parallel-inclined fin design, two copper heatpipes, and two PWM fans.

Codenamed GV-N660WF2-2GD , the card also Ultra Durable VGA design, 960 CUDA Cores, base/boost GPU clocks of 980/1046 MHz, a 192-bit memory interface, 2 GB of GDDR5 VRAM set to 6008 MHz, and dual DVI, HDMI and DisplayPort outputs. No word yet on the card's pricing.

Gigabyte Announces its First Consumer NAS

Following ASUS' venture into the consumer NAS segment as ASUStor, Gigabyte responded with its own. The company launched its Home NAS family with the GR-EZI04H, a 4-bay consumer NAS based on the Intel Atom platform. Pictured below, it uses a common desktop cube form-factor, with a main lockable door covering its four caddies.

Gigabyte used an interesting combination of hardware. It combined a current-generation Atom D2500 dual-core processor clocked at 1.80 GHz, with an old (yet effective) ICH10R southbridge, instead of the usual NM10 PCH. The ICH10R has been used on high-end Intel 4-series and 5-series platforms, and provides six SATA 3 Gb/s ports with RAID 0/5/10. The GR-EZI04H features two gigabit Ethernet ports, two USB 3.0 ports, two USB 2.0/1.1 ports, and a VGA display output. Its OS, a choice between Windows Home Server 2011 and Embedded Linux, is stored on an mPCIe DOM. Gigabyte used a custom NAS management software that isn't extensively detailed, but features a standard feature-set. More details are awaited.

Gigabyte Rolls Out the GZ-F2 and GZ-F5 Series Entry-level Cases

Gigabyte rolled out he GZ-F2 and GZ-F5 series entry-level ATX mid-tower cases (pictured below in that order). The two feature essentially the same chassis, measure and weigh the same at 180 x 420 x 380 mm and 3.3 kg, but differ with design of their plasticy front panel. The GZ-F2, which is available in all-black and black+silver, features a smoother front than the single ridge that makes up GZ-F5. The two are made of 0.5 mm-thick SECC steel, and ABS. Featuring three 5.25-inch drive bays (one of which has an ODD cover), one external and five internal 3.5-inch bays, the cases are equipped with just the one 80 mm rear fan, and provisions for an Intel CAG 1.1-compliant side-panel fan vents. Expect the two to occupy sub-$30 price points.

Gigabyte Readies the GA-C807N and GA-C847N Mini-ITX Motherboards

Gigabyte Technology is currently putting the finishing touches on two new mini-ITX motherboards powered by the Intel NM70 chipset, the GA-C807N (equipped with a 1.5 GHz Celeron 807 single-core processor) and the GA-C847N (coming with a 1.1 GHz Celeron 847 dual-core CPU). The boards have an Ultra Durable 4 Classic design and feature two DDR3-1333 memory slots, three (GA-C847N) or four (GA-C807N) SATA ports (one is SATA 6.0 Gbps), one PCI slot, Gigabit Ethernet (dual Gigabit for the GA-C847N), UEFI DualBIOS, and 5.1-channel audio.

The GA-C807N also packs a D-Sub output, while the GA-C847N has D-Sub and HDMI connectors, and an eSATA port. The boards' prices have not been revealed.

GIGABYTE Launches New HD Motherboard Series

GIGABYTE TECHNOLOGY Co. Ltd., a leading manufacturer of motherboards and graphics cards, today launched its latest HD series motherboards, bringing unprecedented dual digital display support, including HDMI and DVI, to a range of value segment motherboard models.

The new GIGABYTE HD motherboard series defies the current ethos that means true digital display outputs are reserved for upper mainstream models, adding both HDMI and DVI ports to a range of motherboard models at attractive and affordable price points.

GIGABYTE Shatters AMD 'Trinity' APU Speed Record

GIGABYTE TECHNOLGY Co. Ltd., a leading manufacturer of motherboards and graphics cards, today announced the record highest clock speed 7.86GHz on AMD's A10 5800K APU using the GIGABYTE F2A85X-UP4 motherboard.

Attending an AMD Extreme OC show on 20th Nov. in Taipei Taiwan, GIGABYTE's overclocking team, The Killers (featuring HiCookie, S.Dougal and John Lam), took part in an overclocking demonstration achieving two new records on AMD's new Vishera and Trinity platforms. The GIGABYTE F2A85X-UP4 motherboard was able to push the AMD 5800K to an incredible 7.86GHz, more than twice the 3.8GHz stock clock. The AMD FX8350 processor was pushed to 8.47GHz using a GIGABYTE 990FXA-UD3 board.

Gigabyte Thunderbolt Desktop PC Motherboards First to Support 4K Resolution Displays

GIGABYTE TECHNOLOGY Co. Ltd., a leading manufacturer of motherboards and graphics cards, today announced that their dual Thunderbolt series of motherboards support 4K resolution monitors in configurations derived from two Mini DisplayPort connectors, each capable of 2K resolution output. Testing was successfully carried out at GIGABYTE's regional facility in Tokyo, Japan with the EIZO FDH3601 high resolution color monitor that is designed for air traffic control and geophysical services.

"Desktop PC motherboards are all about cutting edge features, performance, and upgradeability, and this is why GIGABYTE was the first motherboard company to adopt dual Thunderbolt ports instead of the single port option," commented Tim Handley, Deputy Director of Motherboard Marketing at GIGABYTE. "When combined with other innovative products, such as EIZO's 4K resolution FDH3601 monitor, GIGABYTE Thunderbolt motherboard users can enjoy next generation display options with their existing platform, without having to wait for future 4K resolution standards."

Gigabyte Unveils GeForce GTX 660 Ti WindForce III 3 GB Graphics Card

Gigabyte unveiled a variation of its 3 GB GeForce GTX 660 Ti OC graphics card. Bearing the model number N66TWF3-3GD, the card sticks to NVIDIA reference clock speeds of 915/980/6008 MHz (core/GPU Boost/memory). It features WindForce 3 triple-fan cooler featuring three 80 mm fans, ventilating a complex heatpipe-fed heatsink. Based on the 28 nm GK104 GPU, the GeForce GTX 660 Ti packs 1344 CUDA cores, and a 192-bit wide GDDR5 memory interface. On this card, twelve 2 Gbit GDDR5 chips are used, arranged on either sides of the PCB. Expect the card to cost around 300€.

Gigabyte Also Readies the GA-F2A85XM-HD3 Micro ATX Motherboard

Gigabyte is currently planning the release of a new Socket FM2 motherboard, a micro ATX model called GA-F2A85XM-HD3 that is powered by the AMD A85X chipset and offers triple monitor support (it includes Dual-link DVI, HDMI and D-Sub ports). This board also has an Ultra Durable 4 Classic design, two DDR3-1866 memory slots, eight SATA 6.0 Gbps ports, one PCIe x1 and two PCIe x16 slots, Gigabit Ethernet, 5.1-channel audio, plus two USB 3.0 and four USB 2.0 ports.

The GA-F2A85XM-HD3 is available for pre-order at £57.14 (~ $90.55).

Gigabyte Announces the Z77X-UD4H Motherboard

Gigabyte launched the Z77X-UD4H, a new socket LGA1155 motherboard model designed to fill the gap between the $155 Z77X-UD3H and $190 Z77X-UD5H. It is built with Gigabyte's Ultra Durable 4 construction, featuring 2 oz copper layer, temperature, humidity, and electrostatic protection features. The LGA1155 socket is powered by a 11-phase VRM that draws power from an 8-pin EPS connector. The socket is wired to four DDR3 DIMM slots, and three PCI-Express 3.0 x16 slots (electrical x16/NC/NC, x8/x8/NC, x8/x4/x4, depending on how they're populated). 3-way NVIDIA SLI and AMD CrossFireX are supported. Other expansion slots include three PCI-Express 2.0 x1, and a legacy PCI.

Straightaway, you'll notice that Gigabyte did away with the mSATA slot featured on the Z77X-UD3H and Z77X-UD5H. In addition to the two SATA 6 Gb/s and four SATA 3 Gb/s ports that the Z77 PCH provides (all of which are wired as internal ports), Gigabyte added two additional 2-port SATA 6 Gb/s controllers, which provide two each of internal SATA 6 Gb/s, and eSATA 6 Gb/s. The board features a total of eight USB 3.0 ports, six on the rear panel, and two by headers. In addition to the four ports the Z77 PCH provides, a 4-port VLI-made host controller is used.
