Features of the 8TRX330-L
Package and Contents
Again Gigabyte isn't pushing the ATI based solutions into its high end overclocking rich, feature packed range. Inside the board you get a similar package to the RS350 board, only this time you get some Serial ATA data and power splitter cables to get you ready for Serial ATA.
The RX330 based board is aimed for the more mid range PC. This baby is put on the ATX format with one AGP and five PCI slots. Definitely enough for the consumer based PC. Placement of connectors follows the same settings as the RS350.
While supporting Prescott series processors, the board only uses the same 3-phase voltage system as the RS350, but like the RS350 the RX330 has the same heatsink both top and bottom over the mosfets to regulate the heat provided when Prescott series chips are used.
The RX330 core is ATI's first discrete graphics based chipset. nVidia did this with its SPP line in the nForce2, so why not ATI. For those who don't want any of the onboard graphics features, this chipset solves the problem. The 9000 graphics core has been removed and further tweaking to the memory controller for faster CPU to memory bandwidth has been done. The IXP300 also makes its appearance again to give the full variety of features.
Like the RS350 based board, the RX330 uses a Realtek PCI Ethernet controller rather than the onboard 3Com controller built into the Southbridge chipset.
We were hoping to see a few more overclocking options on this board than the RS350, however, we were greeted with the same BIOS for the RX330 as the RS350. This means no overclocking for the ATI fans, hopefully we will get a BIOS with some support for voltage adjustments and such, right now it's a no go.
