Gigabyte Intros New Motherboards, Tech at CES

By - Source: Gigabyte Press Release | B 18 comments

Gigabyte is showcasing new motherboards and tech this week in Las Vegas including a G1.Sniper 3 motherboard with Dual LAN, a new digital PWM design called 3D Power and more.

On Tuesday Gigabyte sent along a sheet indicating what the company is currently presenting in Las Vegas at CES 2012. We've broken them down into six parts which introduce a number of new motherboard technologies that will be integrated into the designs of 2012 and beyond. Take a look:

3D Power
Offering digital control over all the main on-board power zones, this new digital PWM design allows users to manipulate and monitor the power provided to 2nd Gen Intel Core and Next Gen processors for the LGA 1155 socket.

2nd-Gen 3D BIOS
Based on Gigabyte UEFI DualBIOS technology, 3D BIOS offers two distinct modes of interaction in a BIOS environment -- 3D Mode and Advanced Mode -- that re-draw the traditional BIOS user experience with a far more intuitive and graphical interface.

G1.Sniper 3 with Dual LAN, G1.Sniper M3
The G1.Sniper 3 motherboard features on-board Creative gaming audio together with a dual LAN configuration of Intel Gigabit and Killer Game Networking controllers. The G1.Sniper M3 is a gaming motherboard with signature G1.Killer DNA in a compact Micro-ATX form factor.

Bluetooth 4.0/Wi-Fi PCIe Card
Selected Gigabyte motherboards will come with an exclusive PCIe expansion card that offers support for the latest Bluetooth 4.0 (Smart Ready) and Wi-Fi connectivity standards. This card will be complemented by Gigabyte's CloudStation utility that will help future Gigabyte Apps to communicate, share resources and control desktop PC systems.

On-board mSATA Support
Most ATX form factor Gigabyte 7 series motherboards will enjoy an on-board mSATA connector that, together with Gigabyte’s EZ Smart Response technology, will allow users to simply and cost effectively enjoy better responsiveness from their PCs.

Small Business Solutions
The B75M-D3H motherboard will be demonstrated during the show, representing a new product range featuring the ability to monitor and manage PC health, installed software, data backup, energy saving and connectivity. Key features and selling points for these models will be manageability, affordability and design quality.

"So many of our customers are small businesses, so we expect the new B75 series of boards will be a popular addition to our 7 series offerings," said Tim Handley, Deputy Director of Motherboard Marketing at Gigabyte Technology. "Small and medium business is expected to be big business in 2012, and Gigabyte is committed to offering an extensive range of top quality motherboards in order to grow with this market."

In addition to the data sheet, Gigabyte also sent over a batch of images showcasing the new motherboards:

    GEEZ! More models to add to the motherboard databases. Just give me one good model at a reasonable price.

    Wow, two features they've needlessly slapped the label 3D onto in one product. Impressive.

    Anybody want to start a pool on what the next tech buzzword is going to be? My money's on quantum.

    I'd buy a Sniper motherboard if they didn't mark them up a $100+...

    Can you please benchmark the mSata technology please?? is it worthwhile?

    "The correct useable"? And you're correcting peoples' grammar?

    The irony, it hurts.

    I love the gigabyte board quality I've had on my and and Intel builds. But I really wish they would stray away from this extreme gamer gun design and labeling system. Solid capacitors and controllers is what I look for. Not a gun shaped heatsink. Gigabyte I love you still =).

    Gigabyte forgot to mention that you'd have to purchase the 3D glasses to fully enjoy the 3D BIOS, and 3D power features :-) 120Hz screen is required ;-)

    Exciting stuff..

    but i want 64 gb ram, gigabyte doesnt do it for me, need it for developing. wont need to shutdown tools then because one tool takes up nearly all my memory.

    also i would like to know the spacing between the pci-E, same as asus or smaller.

    This platform only supports up to four cores?

    oh they know the correct way to use, they just don't care. if you read their, they're, or there it doesn't matter which one you use your mind corrects almost automatically.

    my money is on that they bring back from the past, here's hoping radical. tubular would also be pretty nice

    less pathetic more annoying, we all know they got it wrong you don't need to point it out.

    willard"The correct useable"? And you're correcting peoples' grammar? The irony, it hurts.


    reminds me of what they say about stones in glass houses.

    3-D means three-dimensional correct, three-dimensional can have many applications. Send to a character from a story is being three-dimensional or two-dimensional, what does that mean. What I think it means that these motherboards as they attacked it from three different sides, and added 3-D because it is a buzzword, but that doesn't mean it isn't appropriate.

    ------------------------------------

    That said I will never understand why people want a small motherboard or small case. I'd rather have the biggest motherboard possible the biggest case just because future cards may marry me having more space. Such as right now I want usb 3, esata port, and a high-end audio card, but I only have one available PCI express port.

    Be interesting to see the price ranges on these things. For a poor Chinese like me, I'll probably stick to the Intel Z68 Motherboard. Don't no how compatibility and comparability will work with these motherboards. All new motherboards seem to have a low rating stage early on in the game before the reviewers give higher star reviews. Waiting to see if there will be any problems with these.

    snowzsanShut up, honestly, I'm trying to filter out the shitty "grammar police" post from your nonsense. Not about the article? Go pound salt.Anyways, I have to agree with Alidan's last bit of his post. My board right now has two PCI-e 1x slots side by side which, while ok with me, my Radeon doesn't share the same enthusiam. Apparently, it was so enraged by the idea that it decided to block one. I had to choose between wireless and USB3.All I'm saying is they should throw the PCI-e 1x slots near the bottom of the board. I never plan to go quad on my GPUs and I'm assuming that's not the intent of an average builder either so it'd be appropritate.



    the line up in a computer should be as follows.

    pcie 2/3.0 16x
    pci
    pcie
    pcie
    .... pcie as far down as the motherboard is big

    or

    pcie 2/3.0
    pci
    pcie 2/3.0
    pcie
    pcie
    pcie
    .... again for as big as the motherboard is.

    my understansing is that a pcie 2/3.0 can be used as a normal pcie slot, i have 2 motherboards that still have a pci slot, but have one of the FEW pcie slots taken up by gpu over hang.

    the way i proposed it being laid out allows people with no graphics card needs, or low end to have an open pci port, that normally would be taken up by a mid to high end gpu, putting the pcie ports lower would allow for more current upgrades, such as better sound card, and newer ports that weren't around when your pc was new.
