Computex Taipei 2009: Today at GIGABYTE's suite in Taipei 101 we were given a look at the future of networking from GIGABYTE. Ever had a motherboard with Dual Networking and then have one die on you? Well, GIGABYTE has addressed this issue with Smart Dual Net.

How this system works is pretty simple; two Ethernet ports on the motherboard connect to two separate chips. If one chip dies a smart switch which you see pictured automatically swaps traffic over to the working Ethernet chip without having to do anything special.

This technology will also help users who use one ethernet cable and can't figure out which one to use; just plug and go.
