Everywhere you turn, every advertisement you set your eyes upon, you'll see that almost every manufacturer has joined the “green” movement. This movement is one in which the goal is to cut down our impact on this planet and save its natural resources. One method that computer hardware manufacturers use is creating more energy efficient items. Gigabyte is a perfect example of this. The company has just released its all new “Dynamic Energy Saver” technology that actually gives the user up to 70% less CPU power consumption! Gigabyte also boasts that this technology can give the user up to 20% better CPU power efficiency without sacrificing performance. Are these claims true? How will this Gigabyte EX38-DS4 compare to some of today’s elite motherboards? Join me as I thoroughly examine this new motherboard and the groundbreaking “Dynamic Energy Saver” technology from Gigabyte.
The Gigabyte EX38-DS4 comes packaged in a bright, attractive, white and red box showcasing the “DS4” in a clear cube. The front of the box gives you some of the key features while the back side of the box goes more in depth into those features as well as exposing a few more.
When you open the box, you’ll find an abundance of accessories on top of the motherboard. Gigabyte has included guides and manuals so that you have all of the information you need at your fingertips.
