Enthusiasts love high-end hardware, and when it comes to Intel chipsets, that means the X48 and X38 Express platforms. The 910GL Express sits at the polar opposite of the company’s lineup, shoring up sales of entry-level systems where price is the principal consideration. In between, you have a massive list of discrete and integrated chipsets with mainstream appeal. These are Intel’s best sellers—the platforms you can find in everything from sub-$100 value boards to $200+ prosumer offerings. The P35, in particular, is a solid win for Intel. From Gigabyte’s $75 P35-S3G to DFI’s $230 LanParty P35 T2R, the mid-range chipset is incredibly flexible because it supports the most popular enthusiast... Read more...
DigiTimes reports that Gigabyte Technology will release a low-cost laptop in June that uses the new Intel Atom processor. The M912 will include an 8.9-inch display that will run either Windows XP or Linux."The Gigabyte M912 is being designed in-house by the company in order to enable it to control the development schedule, specification and quality, the sources noted, highlighting that this will allow the company to remain flexible based on market feedback."The M912 should be one of the very fist devices available that uses Intel's new, low-power, 45nm Atom processor. It will be interesting to see how well the M912 stacks up against other ultraportables, such as the Eee PC and the soon-to-be-released... Read more...

Gigabyte is no stranger to innovation. Year after year, we see the company build unique features into its products to increase performance, improve power utilization, decrease noise, and enhance the user experience. As enthusiasts, we love to see innovations that improve products and differentiate them from the rest of the pack. Gigabyte has done just that with one of its GeForce 8800 GT video cards, the GV-NX88T512HP. Most companies selling 8800s just use the NVIDIA reference design with a different sticker on the cooler, and sometimes the cards will get overclocked as well. Gigabyte wasn't happy with that idea, though, when it designed its latest 8800 GT TurboForce Edition card, which it called... Read more...

Today at HotHardware, we have looked at two affordably priced Core 2 platforms based on the Intel P3x series chipset, to see if there were any major differences in terms of performance, features, and overclockability between the two.  Representing the P35 Express, we have the ECS P35T-A, which retails for a little over $100 USD. In addition, we have the new Gigabyte GA-P31-DS3L representing the P31 Express. This new Gigabyte motherboard is currently selling for about 20% less (around $80 USD), making it one of the least expensive P3x boards currently on the market.  Click the link below and take a look...Budget Core 2 Platforms from ECS and Gigabyte...

Intel’s latest chipset family, the P3x-series, can certainly be qualified as a hit thus far. While Intel P3x-series chipsets, like the mid-range P35 series and the budget-targeted P31 series, don’t sport any truly exciting new features in comparison to their previous generation counterparts, they’re showing themselves to be extremely reliable and very flexible thus far. While high-end (performance minded) buyers will most likely opt for Intel’s coming upcoming X38 and X48 chipsets, the P35 and P31 Express chipsets will no doubt become the base for the vast majority of Intel platforms over the next several years. Currently Intel has two chipsets in the P3x family, the Intel P35 Express and the... Read more...

We first took a look at Intel's P35 Express chipset back in May, when it was released into the wild to supplant the still relatively youthful P965 and usher in the era of DDR3 memory and 1333MHz FSB Intel processors. The P965 is a tough act to follow. Despite its intended mid-range market placement, Intel didn't hamper the P965 in any way except for the lack of official Crossfire support. With its excellent feature set and good performance, the P965 presented an excellent value and became many people's first choice for all of their single-GPU needs. For the P35, Intel has wisely chosen not to change the formula. Actually, the P35 Express is an even better value than the P965 was with its official... Read more...
When Gmail was first announced, with its 1 GB limit, it certainly made news.  Since then Hotmail (Now Windows Live Hotmail), Yahoo Mail, and Gmail have all been increasing the storage capacity of both their free accounts and the pay-for accounts.Now Microsoft is jumping from 2 GB to 5 GB in a move to outdo Gmail.  We're eagerly awaiting Gmail's response. “The limit for a free Windows Live Hotmail account will increase from 2GB to 5GB. The change will be rolled out to users over the next few weeks along with a series of other upgrades, wrote Ellie Powers-Boyle, a Microsoft program manager, on a company blog. Google offers around 2.8GB of storage space for a free account. Last week, Google began... Read more...

When you think of GIGABYTE, you may envision only a manufacturer of motherboards and video cards, but there is a lot more to this Taiwan based company than initially meets the eye.  GIGABYTE also markets Network Servers, Notebook PCs, a broad array of peripherals and their Thermal Solutions line which covers PSUs, air and water cooling kits, and Chassis.

While inspecting Hall 2 today, we saw Gigabyte’s cartoon mascot and decided to take another walk through their booth, this time focusing on their new, non-motherboard products.       We immediately noticed that Gigabyte was showing off some new processor heatsink fan designs. Most interesting of which is named the Gigabyte Volar.  As you can see from the pictures, the heatsink is tilted at a 45 degree angle, so that the exhaust air can more easily exit the system as well as cool the motherboard MOSFETs in the process.       We then moved on to Gigabyte’s two new power supplies, the Thor 1200W...

Yesterday we ran through the Taipei convention center to see how construction of the booths for this year’s Computex trade show were progressing. When we walked by Shuttle’s booth in hall 2 of the convention center, we saw pictures of three un-announced barebone small form factor systems, the X38 based SX38P3 Deluxe, the G33 based SG33P3, and the P35 based SP35P3 Deluxe. Although the show is still one day away, we came back to the Shuttle booth and were able to see all three of these new systems.         The first system we looked at was the SX38P3 Deluxe, Shuttle’s new flagship barebone system. The SX38P3 will replace the SD37PV2 as the Shuttle’s... Read more...
The premium graphics card market is in a lopsided state.  NVIDIA's GeForce 8800 series is still relatively unchallenged in the high-end space, a position which has been futher solidified with the addition of the 8800 Ultra.  By giving the GeForce 8800GTX a nominal speed bump, NVIDIA continues to maintain its lead.  ATI, on the otherhand, is still trying to get their R600 on store shelves in mass quantities, after receiving a lukewarm reception at launch.  The Radeon HD 2900 XT we recently reviewed turned out to be a decent performer, but is nowhere near the challenger to the GeForce 8800 as we all thought it might be.  While "who's the fastest" may be the most popular and exciting topic, it's...
