Killer NIC maker Bigfoot Networks is having a really, really big week at CES 2011. The Austin, TX company announced January 5 a big deal with Gigabyte for a new line of gamer-oriented motherboards with embedded Killer E2100 NIC. It announced today, January 7, a similar deal with ASUS.
Gigabyte invited us over to the Venetian for their press conference. Unlike many press conferences that we have gone to this one was themed. Gigabyte went with a military war theme that actually was pretty cool. So why did Gigabyte go with this theme? It was to promote their new G1-Killer Gaming Series motherboards. So let’s see what these motherboards are all about and what Gigabyte has in store for 2011.
NVIDIA’s current lineup of graphics cards has the top performers like the newly released GTX 580 and the GTX 480 that has been out for some time now. These cards will give you top of the line performance, but will put a considerable dent in your wallet. If you are on a budget NVIDIA’s GTS 450 maybe be what you need to get yourself into the DirectX 11 game. This is NVIDIA’s lowest end DirectX 11 card. Today we will be looking at the GV-N450-1GI from Gigabyte which does offer a higher clock speed and better cooler than NVIDIA’s reference GTS 450 card. This card also will not break the bank as it can be found online for around $119. Let’s take a look…
Gigabyte has a full line of Intel X58 motherboards, today we will be taking a look at the X58A-UD5, which is much like the X58A-UD3R we reviewed back in February. The X58A-UD5 supports the latest Intel 6-core 32nm processors, features the latest generation of SuperSpeed USB 3.0 technology with super fast transfer rates of up to 5 Gbps, as well as Marvell’s new SE9128 chips for high-speed SATA 3.0 compatibility, delivering super fast 6Gbps link speeds. Other cool features like the 16 phase unlocked power design, dual power switching, USB charging support, and the Cloud OC and Hotkey OC are perfect for power users. Let’s take a look and see what all the X58A-UD5 has to offer.
Here’s a sneak peak at a few GIGABYTE 6 series motherboards that will support the new 2nd Generation Intel® Core™ processors (codenamed Sandy Bridge). Along with information about some of the new boards, we also have box art and photos of many of the 6 Series motherboards. Read on to check it all out!

TAIPEI, Taiwan – July 12, 2010 – GIGABYTE TECHNOLOGY Co., Ltd, a leading manufacturer of motherboards, graphics cards and other computing hardware solutions is proud to launch two free overclocking applications for GIGABYTE motherboards. GIGABYTE Hotkey OC features real time overclocking via designated keys on a standard keyboard that allow for different overclocking settings to be used during various stages in a benchmark. GIGABYTE Cloud OC enables overclocking or system status monitoring and tweaking in real time from any device with an internet browser and wireless or Bluetooth connectivity.
Then just last weekend I was chatting with a friend that had attended CES, who told me that Intel was working on a new LGA 1366 processor line, a six-core monster using 32nm…yeah, I know, I’m behind the times, the gossip about the new processors started back in Nov-Dec, but I was busy “fixing up” a “fixer-upper” house and moving during that time. Anyway, I got a little excited, hoping that maybe LGA 1366 wasn’t dead, just in hibernation. The very next day, lo and behold, our friends at Gigabyte placed a cool little gem into my hands…a brand new LGA 1366 motherboard, complete with onboard SATA 6GB/s and USB 3. Today I will be looking at the Gigabyte X58A-UD3R, the entry-level model of their three new X58 motherboards, which appear to be designated differently from the older models by an “A” after the X58 in their name, and ending with an “R” rather than the usual “P”. Will this be the board of the future? Read on to see!
