Gigabyte DDR3 motherboards

CEBIT 2007: DDR3 has moved from future tech to reality

 

 

 

    Key words that can be seen from any corner of Gigabyte's booth are All-Solid capacitors, Low RDS MOSFET, and Ferrite Choke Coil. Those technology improvements are just beginning of a new era of more power efficient motherboards (less generated heat), with no sacrifice in performance for the enthusiasts. Bearlake chipset could be used to its full potential on these boards.

 

The GA-P35T-DQ6 supports Intel Core 2 Quad, and upcoming 45 nanometre processors wit dual-channel DDR3 memory. At the time being, the board is advertised as DDR3 1066. The cooling has been redesigned, as you can see on the picture, a massive system that consists of heat pipes and full copper coolers, covers the chipset, and motherboard voltage regulators. Also, the integrated audio is the newest Realtek 8.1 HD. Of course, these boards are Cross fire ready, have Quad BIOS feature, ROHS compliant, and look really good.

Very similar to this board is the GA-P35T-DS4 board. It lacks the Quad BIOS, Quad eSATA support, but everything else is there.


 

And for the less enthusiastic users, Gigabyte is offering GA-P35T-DS3P motherboard. The gigantic copper cooling system has been replaced with smaller aluminum passive solutions. Also the voltage regulators on the board are not being cooled. Again, you will not get eSATA, or all the other Quad features from the first board.
