As you may have noticed in the hardware roundup posted earlier today, AMD officially launched its new 790GX chipset today. Among the first offerings based on the chipset is Gigabyte's GA-MA790GP-DS4H motherboard, which along with the usual features you would expect from the company features support for Hybrid CrossfireX and advanced power saving options. The onboard HD 3300 graphics processor also gets 128MB of dedicated DDR3 sideport memory, which Gigabyte are claiming helps it to achieve (with overclocking) 3DMark06 scores north of 2800. If you drop in a couple of discrete graphics cards, you can also connect up to six monitors in total (providing you can find the space on your desk for that). Expect to see the board at retailers very soon.
