Gigabyte were mainly focused on their motherboards and graphics cards at this year's Computex. It looks like Gigabyte have moved completely away from nVidia graphics chipsets, as there were only Radeon and SiS-based graphics cards on display at their stand. The first of their graphics cards that caught our eye was their SP64DG, based on the SiS Xabre 400 chipset. It features AGP 8x, a built in programmable 24-bit true colour RAMDAC with up to 375MHz pixel clock, DVI and TV outputs and SiS's Frictionless Memory Control technology.
Gigabyte were also displaying their AP128D-H3 card based on the Radeon 8500XT graphics chipset. It features 128MB 3.3ns memory, a 300/300MHz core/memory clock speed, DVI and TV outputs and Gigabyte's double sided "advanced feedback cooling system".
There were other Gigabyte video cards on display based on variations of the Radeon 8500 and 7500 chipsets, however, they are nothing you haven't seen before and not worth including in this coverage.
As far as motherboards are concerned, Gigabyte had their KT400-based motherboard on display, called the GA-7VAXP. It features AGP 8x, 5.1 Creative integrated audio, DDR400 memory support, 10/100 Ethernet and Gigabyte's patented DualBIOS technology. Gigabyte were also displaying their new GA-K8A board based on the AMD 8151 chipset. It supports two SerialATA devices as well as three ATA133 devices, AGP 8x and DDR333. It also features integrated 10/100 Ethernet, 5.1 Creative audio, three IEEE1394 ports and six USB 2.0 ports.
Another thing that interested me at Gigabyte's stand was the GA-8TRML motherboard they had on display based on the upcoming ATi IGP340 chipset. It supports the Socket478 Pentium 4, DDR266 memory, integrated 10/100 Ethernet and AC97 audio. There was not much information available about this chipset, however, judging by its specifications it will be directed at the value market.
