Gigabyte gets the royal touch

Subject: Motherboards | January 17, 2006 - 02:06 PM |

As the review on Bjorn3D explains, the Gigabyte GA-8I955x qualifies as royalty because of the support for 888MHz DDR2, Gigabyte's patented Universal-Plus Dual Power System, dual gigabit LAN and IEEE 1394b. Kudos to Gigabyte for supporting IEEE 1394b and not just 1394a and for including support for three ports.

If you want to read about something even newer, Ryan has posted his preview of NVIDIA's nForce4 SLI XE and Ultra for Intels.

"Rare jewels (diamond), precious metals (platinum), positions of distinction (royal)... all of

these are common themes used by manufacturers to distinguish its flagship products from the rest

of the pack. For Gigabyte, the theme is royalty, and the board to most recently grace our labs is

the GA-8I955X Royal."
