CeBIT 2007: Gigabyte Review

Page 2 »

Gigabyte has a very large booth, showing off all their different offerings. Even though they also have the current items on display, we will focus mostly on the new comers and future products. Gigabyte has a few Intel P35 based boards hung up on a wall. All of these feature an all solid capacitor design, which should improve lifespan and overclock ability. The GA-P35-DQ6 features a Quad BIOS for multiple protection as well as CrossFire support. The GA-P35-DS4 is much similar, but does not feature the Quad BIOS.

The GA-P35-DS3P and DS3 also use solid state capacitors. The DS3P features two PCIe x16 slots with CrossFire support while the DS3 lacks the second PCIe x16 slot. Both do not have heat pipe cooling but look quite similar to the larger DS4 and DQ6.

Gigabyte also decided to design a full size ATX board using the upcoming Intel G33 chipset. It does not feature a HDMI port, but the company offers an external board with the connector. There is also a mATX board using the G33 chipset.

You can also find an interesting server board, which uses two socket F for Opteron processors. It also comes with Dual GBit LAN, 1 PCIe X16, 1 PCI-X and support for up to 32GB of memory. Gigabyte is also showing off two VIA based mini-ITX boards and a mATX variant with a VIA chip as well.

Gigabyte is also letting visitors take a look at a passively cooled nForce 680i board as well as two versions of the new AMD 690G chipset. The company decided to place such a chipset on a full size ATX board as well as a mATX board.
