Gigabyte launches new high-end desktop motherboard
Components vendor brings support for Intel's Xeon E3-1200 v5 processor and ECC DDR4 memory
Gigabyte Technology Co Ltd, a manufacturer of motherboards and graphics cards, has launched a whole new series of high end desktop (HEDT) motherboards with the X170 and X150 series, based on Intel C236 and C232 chipset.
In addition to supporting the new Intel Xeon E3-1200 v5 processor and ECC DDR4 memory (for select motherboards), the new motherboards are also compatible with Intel's sixth generation Core i3, Pentium and Celeron processors.
These new high-end desktop motherboards will bring support for Xeon Processors to users who desire a professional solution whether it's for Photography, Designing, Video Streaming and more.
"I know Gigabyte is providing the best HEDT experience with the X170 and X150 motherboards, combining performance, stability and durability," commented Henry Kao, vice president, Gigabyte's Motherboard Business Unit.
The new generation of Xeon processors is based on the 14nm process technology and designed with the new Skylake microarchitecture. Among the main features of this new product family is the adoption of the DDR4 memory technology, which brings a significant memory speed and capacity boost over the previous generation.
With the introduction of the X170-Extreme ECC, X150-PRO ECC and X150M-PRO ECC, users can benefit from error correcting code (ECC) memory. Utilising specialised memory chips on the RAM modules, it can eliminate small data discrepancies and prevent data corruption to ensure reliability for critical applications while helping to reduce system crashes.
