GIGABYTE's flagship GA-8I955X Royal Motherboard Reaches RECORD BREAKING 1066MHz DDR II Memory Frequency
Well-known overclocking website OC.COM http://www.oc.com.tw reports: "The DDR II frequency of the GIGABYTE GA-8I955X Royal motherboard not only passed the barrier of 800MHz, but managed to reach 1066MHz. With a testing configuration consisting of an Intel Pentium 4 3.46 EE CPU and A-DATA DDR II 800 memory, the GIGABYTE GA-8I955X Royal impressed by reaching a DDR II memory frequency of an impressive 1066MHz with CPU-Z testing and a max. 4.0x frequency set-up, which translates into an outstanding performance improvement that keeps GIGABYTE products ahead in the adoption of new technologies. Obviously, GIGABYTE's focus on product research and development is really paying off. As Intel 955/945 products become available this year, consumers will not only be able to experience progressive products and technologies, but also unprecedented overclocking support. With a 400MHz performance gap, the GA-8I955X Royal is indeed GIGABYTE's flagship motherboard. As DDR II becomes the mainstream memory technology, the memory frequency supported by motherboards is increasingly important for maximum operating performance."
Reviews of the GA-8I955X Royal are starting to appear and the general consensus is that it is an awesome overclocker! Keep your eyes peeled for more shattered records as enthusiast journos push it to the max.
