Generation Change: Eight Motherboards For The Athlon 64

Gigabyte GA-K8VNXP, Continued

UltraATA/133 RAID and no fewer than two FireWires: he component on the left has two IEEE1394a ports, while the larger one on the right has a connection for 800 Mbit/s (IEEE1394b).

Gigabyte didn't need to integrate a separate SATA controller for the K8VNXP since the Southbridge VT8237 on the VIA K8T800 has two ports already.

The K8T800 is actively cooled. Unfortunately, fan speed cannot be controlled.

Gigabyte uses three phase voltage regulators. The blue slot is taken up by the DPS module, which has the same voltage regulator for parallel connection.
