GIGABYTE Announces Ultra Durable "All Solid Capacitor" Motherboard -bGA-965P-DQ6 6-Quad Motherboard for New Intel® Core 2 Duo Processor
GIGABYTE TECHNOLOGY Co., LTD. (GIGABYTE), a leading manufacturer of
motherboards and VGA cards, today proudly unveiled the GA-965P-DQ6, the
company's first 6-QUAD edition motherboard. The new GIGABYTE flagship
motherboard sports solid Conductive Polymer Aluminum capacitors for unequalled
durability, and is based on the latest Intel® P965 Express Chipset supporting
the powerful and energy efficient Intel® Core™2 Duo processor that is set to
take the PC market by storm.
A key feature of the GIGABYTE GA-965P-DQ6 is its amazing performance that
stems from its excellent design, an innovative tuning facility that allows power
users to tweak performance, and the killer combination of the new Intel® Core™2
Duo processor plus the new Intel P965 chipset. The Intel® Core™2 Duo processor
boasts new records in desktop CPU performance across the board from raw number
crunching to gaming and digital media encoding/decoding, while the new Intel®
P965 Express Chipset includes an optimized memory engine that maximizes the use
of available memory bandwidth and reduces the latency of the memory accesses by
the Memory Engine. Innovative GIGABYTE tuning facilities include a complete
range of performance tuning tools, such as C.I.A.2, BIOS Setting Recovery, and
the latest Easy Tune5 that allow the user to customize their rig according to
their individual requirements.
The motherboard's unique design includes features such as Quad Cooling, Quad
e-SATA2, Quad BIOS, and Quad-Triple Power Phase that enable the user to fully
utilize all the latest technologies. Add to this the fact that quad cooling
includes the fanless GIGABYTE Silent-Pipe cooling system and the result is a
quiet but exceptionally powerful platform for PC enthusiasts to explore the new
performance boundaries made possible by the latest CPU and chipset technologies
Onboard audio is provided by Intel® High Definition Audio, delivering heart
pounding 7.1 channel surround effects with both Dolby and DTS enabled functions
for the most natural and engrossing multimedia entertainment experience.
To ensure a longer lifespan for systems in daily
operation while boosting system stability under extreme conditions, the GIGABYTE
Durability Enhanced platform adopts cutting-edge Conductive Polymer Aluminum
Solid Capacitors from the world's leading vendors. This 'newest value-added'
feature, is a design innovation only from GIGABYTE.
Quad Bios is another feature unique to GIGABYTE that includes DualBIOS™ and
Express BIOS Rescue Technology. This combination delivers a safety assurance
mechanism that sports a total of 4 copies of BIOS distributed between the
hard-disk and driver CD. This feature helps to reduce the affects of virus
attacks or firmware damage and provides multi-layer BIOS protection that assures
greater PC platform stability.
This revolutionary cooling design combines Crazy Cool and
Silent-Pipe technology that caters to the cooling needs of the PCB around the
CPU, the MOSFET modules, the north bridge and the south bridge. Quad Cooling
allows users to enjoy longer component lifetime through lower temperatures and
absolute silence combined with the ultimate thermal performance on chipsets, CPU
power components and the PCB.
Four sets of external SATA ports based on the Serial ATA 3Gb/s
storage specification allow effortless sharing and transfer of entertainment
content and digital media on external devices. Designed for external SATA
devices, Quad e-SATA2 delivers enhanced scalability and double the bus bandwidth
for high-speed data retrieval and saving On-The-Go.
A feature found exclusively on GIGABYTE motherboards, this unique design
incorporates 12 Power Phases to deliver steadier power and immediate current
support for the CPU during heavy work loads or over-clocking. Additionally,
Quad-Triple Phase helps to improve component lifespan system stability by
delivering lower component temperature.
The new platform from GIGABYTE
allows users to experience the power of Dual core processors and be prepared for
Quad Core processors well in advance. Dual Core processors allow users to
process more tasks simultaneously. Similarly, Quad Core processors are set to be
introduced soon and will enable even more multitasking with greater performance
and reduced power consumption.
With quad DDR2 800 technology, users can experience the boost in memory
performance through faster speeds and higher data bandwidth for memory intensive
As the new flagship motherboard from GIGABYTE, the GA-965P-DQ6 stands out
from the crowd as the best solution for the new generation of high performance
technologies from Intel®.
