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


By: | Editorials in Motherboards | Posted: Jul 11, 2002 4:00 am

Conclusion

 

The Gigabyte duo are a remarkable pair - One for the enthusiasts and one for the value market, yet both give just about the same level of performance. If you are interested in the budget style or for the extra features, you have no worries about choosing Gigabytes boards.

 

On the 8IEXP side, the overclocking would have been a bit better if you could raise the CPU core voltage up to 1.85v instead of limiting it at 1.725v. This is really the only problem we had with this board. Every peripheral needed for today's computing, including Firewire was included. Performance and stability were beyond what we had expected from Gigabyte.

 

The 8IEXP gets 9.5 out of 10 and TweakTown's Editors Choice

 

 

As for the 8IGX. It is the most powerful and promising value Intel board we have seen. While you don't get all the fancy hardware that the 8IEXP features, you still get USB 2.0, Smart Media connectors, onboard video and some super overclocking

 

In all, we rate this board 8 out of 10.
