Gigabyte, a leading manufacturer of motherboards and graphics cards is proud to showcase their latest range of Ultra Durable 2 motherboards including sneak peaks of the highly anticipated GA-X38T-DQ6 and GA-X38-DQ6, both supporting the upcoming Intel? X38 chipset as well as the GA-M790-DQ6 with support for the AMD? RD790 chipset, proving that 2007 is truly the year for gamers and enthusiasts.

GIGABYTE United is again excited to participate in Computex 2007, highlighting some of their latest Ultra Durable 2 motherboards which continue to lead the industry for top quality design. Featuring highly efficient components such as ferrite core choke coils, low RDS(on) MOSFETs and all Japanese manufactured SMD mounted solid capacitors, GIGABYTE Ultra Durable 2 motherboards ensure the highest levels of reliability and stability, cooler working temperatures and enhanced overclocking capabilities for today?s high performance, high definition platforms.

Intel Platform
To start things off, on display will be the world?s first live demos of GIGABYTE?s next generation Ultra Durable 2 platforms based on the Intel X38 series chipset. Supporting the upcoming 45nm Intel multi-core processors, the GIGABYTE GA-X38T-DQ6 and GA-X38-DQ6 provide advanced PCI Express 2.0 support with true dual x16 connectivity to deliver the extreme multi-GPU performance gamers have long been waiting for. In addition, the GIGABYTE GA-X38T-DQ6 supports DDR3 memory up to 1333MHz for lightning fast memory performance with ultra low power consumption. GIGABYTE will also have on display a wide range of their Intel? P35 based motherboards including the new GIGABYTE GA-P35T-DQ6.

AMD Platform
On the AMD side, GIGABYTE presents the GA-M790-DQ6, featuring the AMD RD790 chipset and support for the new AMD Phenom? quad-core processors, with the latest socket AM2+ support, integrated DDR2 1066 memory controller, HyperTransport? 3.0 technology links and 128-bit Floating Point Units. The GIGABYTE GA-M790-DQ6 also features support for PCI Express 2.0 as well as ATI CrossFire? with dual x16, or four x8 connectivity for the ultimate High-Def entertainment experience.

About GIGABYTE Ultra Durable 2 Design
GIGABYTE Ultra Durable 2 motherboards utilize Ferrite core chokes, which provide higher frequency operation for improved overclocking performance, lower temperatures, lower electromagnetic interference and improved resistance to rust, while low RDS(on) MOSFETs provide a more efficient gate switching process resulting in less heat generation. In addition, the GIGABYTE Ultra Durable 2 motherboards utilize all Japanese manufactured SMD (Surface Mount Device) solid capacitors which provide higher heat resistance, increased performance, extended system reliability and are more environmental friendly than less expensive electrolytic capacitors.

Adding to these is the new all new copper GIGABYTE Silent Pipe thermal solution covering the north bridge, south bridge and CPU power MOSFETs, dramatically reducing the general CPU zone temperature. The GIGABYTE Ultra Durable 2 motherboards are also equipped with the latest Realtek ALC889A audio codec, enabling high quality Full Rate Lossless Audio for content protected media and support for both Blu-ray and HD DVD formats for an exhilarating home theater entertainment experience. The ALC889A also provides support for 7.1 + 2 channel high definition output for an outstanding audio experience for Windows? Vista? Premium PCs.
