Gigabyte also showcased a neat computer build designed
to appeal to musicians using the new Creative sound chip.
Here we have
the Ultra Durable Technology 5 demonstration rig. What you see
below are three different motherboards with three different types of motherboard VRM circuitry. The
three thermocouple thermometers show VRM temps so we can compare the systems in terms of heat
Note that each system is being watercooled so there is no forced airflow in
and around the CPU VRM.
Test system 1 - PowIRStage
IR3550 design motherboard VRM.
Test system 2 - traditional
Test system 3 - traditional
Temperature breakdown between the
three motherboards to compare VRM temp... the Gigabyte UDT5 solution
is at 62.5C.
And here we have a comparison of the three types of motherboard VRM circuits
Gigabyte has used in recent years, starting first with the new UDT5 single chip
Low RDS MOSFETs is a pillar of UDT4 design (below).
The final example shows the bog standard MOSFET circuit used on motherboards for
many years (below).
More from Gigabyte's suite at Computex 2012 is coming up right after the
