First impression on unpacking the Q702 test unit was the solid feel and clean, minimalist styling.
Gigabyte's X58 motherboards to now support Nvidia SLI
- — 16 May, 2009 04:23
Gigabyte today announced that their entire range of Intel X58 chipset motherboards now officially support Nvidia SLI technology. According to a press release, users can enable Nvidia SLI support on their current motherboards with a simple BIOS upgrade from the GIGABYTE website. The Gigabyte X58 series motherboards feature the new QPI interface, 3 channel DDR3 support, Ultra Durable 3 technology and a range of overclocking features.
The Gigabyte Ultra Durable 3 design, incorporates 2 ounces of copper for both the Power and Ground layers which lowers system temperature by delivering a more efficient spreading of heat from critical areas of the motherboard such as the CPU power zone throughout the entire PCB. It also lowers the PCB impedance by 50 per cent, which helps to reduce electrical waste and further lowers component temperatures. A 2oz Copper layer design also provides improved signal quality and lower EMI (Electromagnetic Interference), providing better system stability and allowing for greater margins for overclocking.
