GIGABYTE

Approaching its 25th year in business, GIGABYTE is one of the leading manufacturers of motherboards and graphics cards. In fact, worldwide, at least 1 of 10 PCs use a GIGABYTE motherboard. Its Ultra Durable 3 line of motherboards, in particular, are extremely popular among enthusiasts.

The first thing I noticed was an Eyefinity 6 demo, featuring GIGABYTE's GA-890FXA-UD7 motherboard with four GV-R5876P-2GD-B ATI Radeon HD 5870 Eyefinity 6 Edition graphics cards. To say this setup is a beast would be an understatement. As you can see in the video below, playing a game like DiRT on a six-panel setup works fairy well, though I'd have to imagine it wouldn't be as good for an FPS where your crosshair would be right where the top and bottom bezels meet.

 

 

 

 

 

 

As stated above, the motherboard behind that setup is the GA-890FXA-UD7, which can be seen in more detail below. This is the top AMD motherboard offered by GIGABYTE, supporting the new AMD Phenom II X6 processors, 4-way ATI Crossfire X, and featuring USB3.0 and SATA 6GB/s. The board also features Ultra Durable 3 technology (2 oz copper PCB, 50,000 hour Japanese Solid Capacitors, Lower RDS(on) MOSFETs, and Ferrite Core Chokes), as well as its Hybrid Silent-Pipe 2 thermal solution, which combines air cooling and liquid cooling.

 

 

 

On the graphics side of things, GIGABYTE was showing off its new Super Overclock Series, which features two cards from each side. The newest addition being shown off was the ATI Radeon HD 5870 SOC Edition (GV-R587SO-1GD). The card features Ultra Durable VGA+ components, which includes all the great high quality components of Ultra Durable VGA (2 oz copper PCB, Tier 1 Samsung and Hynix Memory, Japanese Solid Capacitors, Ferrite Core/Metal Chokes, and Low RDS(on) MOSFETs), as well as Proadlizer Quintuple. Proadlizer Quintuple means that the card features five units of NEC Proadlizer, also known as film capacitors, providing capacity up to 5000uF and extremely low ESL/ESR. This allows electric currents to be charged and discharged rapidly to support super overclocking activity. In addition, all SOC cards undergo GIGABYTE's GPU Gauntlet Sorting - GIGABYTE evaluates the GPU core engine and shader engine, selecting only the GPUs with the best power efficiency and lowest power consumption, ensuring you get a top performer.
