GIGABYTE is proud to announce two new models of workstation motherboards and one new model dedicated to mission critical server applications. All of them being based on the Intel Xeon processors E5-2600 product family, these new models are designed to answer demanding needs for computing resources across various usage models, form factors and scales. While these products have been naturally thought for scenarios requiring heavy computing power through GPUs or GPGPU / co-processors cards, from CAD/CAE to rendering, simulation and modeling, their most notable advantage relies in their unique memory performance capability. GIGABYTE motherboards support DDR3-1600 MHz speeds with 16 GB 1.35V RDIMMs.

There really is nothing technically challenging about allowing these mobos to use DDR3 @ 1600 MHz. The CPUs are the issue with using slower RAM frequencies, not the mobo. The CPU must support significant quantities of DRAM @1600 MHz. for servers/workstations, so I'm sure there is a little disclamer notice on these mobos about the RAM frequency and CPU used.

Actually, if you're using fully buffered RDIMMs, you would be surprised how much more difficult it gets to run memory faster while still calculating and storing ECC parity as well as buffering the memory. Stability for a server is important that everything else because a server can't do it job reliably (which is very important for mission critical applications, or most applications for that matter) if it isn't stable.

So no, the CPU and motherboard aren't the only limiting factors. In fact for ECC memory they're not the limiting factors in most cases.

the second picture motherboard design is really stupid
Welcome to TPU. Don't go trolling you don't know what is going on. The board looks like it is designed for a rackmount chassis. It doesn't look stupid, it doesn't look like it is for a regular tower that is all. Go troll elsewhere. :(

I would take that one for a gateway actually. All of the ethernet ports would let me dedicate 1Gbps to each switch at work rather than routing them all through one.

You're like the Kevin Federline of posting. Insightful, dynamic, handsome and a true revolutionary.

No but seriously, come with arguments instead.

hey whats yo problem
Your attitude. You're acting like a child with the maturity to match. If all you can say is that something is stupid then dismiss what someone says by saying "what ever" that's disrespectful, it's immature, and it doesn't contribute to the thread.

Post only if you have something useful and appropriate to contribute..
