Gigabyte's New Pentium 4 Solutions - 8IEXP and 8IGX

Gigabyte's line of motherboard in the past have been questionable and plagued with problems. Some people have had success with them, while others have had nothing but problems. In the last 6 months they have tried to improve their PR and success records to 100% and are doing a good job at it, by listening to what we really want. Today Cameron "Sov" Johnson takes a look at two new Pentium 4 motherboard solutions from Gigabyte - Namely the feature packed 8IEXP and the more value based 8IGX.

Introduction

 

Gigabyte's line of boards in the past have been very questionable and plagued with problems. Some people have had success with them, while others have had nothing but problems. Gigabyte, in the last 6 months, has tried to improve their PR and success records to 100%. So far this isn't fully achieved, as some people are having issues with their Gigabyte boards.

 

Now we aren't here to debate this today, while we have had nothing but success with Gigabyte boards, we do acknowledge the people who are having problems with Gigabyte boards, and many other brands, in our forums - as a side note, please feel free to visit them and share with us your opinions and problems.

 

Gigabyte have recently dove head first into the Intel Pentium 4 market with a few very feature rich and/or excellent performing motherboards. First off we had the GA-8SRX. This baby gave us DDR-333 via the SiS 645 chipset making the Pentium 4 start to become a viable system for the end user. Next Gigabyte drove just about every available feature onto an I845D chipset board, namely the 8IRXP. This was a hit and a failure - All the features on this board made it a hit, but some people experienced overclocking difficulties. Personally I had no problems, but then again, some get them and others do not.

 

Today we are looking at two new Gigabyte boards for the 533FSB Pentium 4 processor - Introducing the Mainstream 8IEXP and value/mainstream 8IGX.
