-- GIGABYTE Launches Industry's First USB 3.0, SATA 6Gbps Solution on AMD Platform --
-- GIGABYTE extends 333 Onboard Acceleration, 8+2 power phase and EES across AMD 700 chipset series motherboards --
Taipei, Taiwan, November 25, 2009 - GIGABYTE Technology CO., LTD., a leading manufacturer of motherboards and graphics cards today is pleased to introduce their latest 333 Onboard Acceleration technology featuring support for USB 3.0, Serial-ATA Revision 3.0 (6Gbps) and a 3x USB Power Boost, as well as 8+2 power phases, Ultra Durable 3 (UD3) and Easy Energy Saver (EES) on AMD 700 series chipset motherboards including the GA-790FXTA-UD5, GA-790XTA-UD4 and GA-770TA-UD3.
"By extending our 333 Onboard Acceleration technologies to the AMD platform, GIGABYTE is enabling more of our customers to take advantage of the many benefits high speed data transfer and storage has to offer," commented Henry Kao, Vice President GIGABYTE Motherboard Business Unit. "As the leader in motherboard innovation, GIGABYTE is proud to be able to deliver the very latest technologies to our customers, and with next generation storage capabilities including USB 3.0, SATA 3.0, as well as GIGABYTE's own unique 3x USB Power Boost, tomorrows performance has truly arrived today."
Equipped with the AMD AM3 socket, the GIGABYTE GA-790FXTA-UD5, GA-790XTA-UD4 and GA-770TA-UD3 motherboards allow users to elevate their rig beyond the standard limits with support for the latest 45nm AMD PhenomII/ AthlonII processors featuring HyperTransport 3.0 and integrated DDR3 memory controller. Built with the highest level of top notch engineering, these 3 new models feature an extremely durable 8+2 CPU VRM power phase design, able to handle the power demands from 140W CPUs with ease. GIGABYTE also makes it easy for users to take advantage of extended power savings with the GIGABYTE Easy Energy Saver. Featuring an advanced proprietary software design, GIGABYTE Easy Energy Saver is able to dynamically adjust CPU power depending on workload, delivering just the right amount of power needed for the task.
USB 3.0 Support
The GIGABYTE GA-790FXTA-UD5, GA-790XTA-UD4 and GA-770TA-UD3 motherboards support the latest generation SuperSpeed USB 3.0 technology made possible through an onboard NEC uPD720200 host controller. With superfast transfer rates of up to 5 Gbps, users are able to experience an almost a 10x improvement over USB 2.0. Additionally, backwards compatibility with USB 2.0 assures users of long term use of their legacy USB 2.0 devices. The onboard NEC SuperSpeed USB 3.0 technology also provides new power management features that include increased maximum bus power and device current draw to better accommodate power-hungry devices.
SATA 6 Gbps Support
Yet another onboard feature of the GIGABYTE GA-790FXTA-UD5, GA-790XTA-UD4 and GA-770TA-UD3 motherboards is Marvell's new 88SE9128 chips for high-speed SATA Revision 3.0 compatibility, delivering superfast 6Gbps link speeds for twice the data transfer rates of SATA Revision 2.0 (3 Gbps). When used in RAID 0 (Stripe) mode, the GIGABYTE AMD 700A series motherboards offer even faster data transfer rates of up to 4x the speed of current SATA interfaces. Another advantage of the Marvell SE9128 is its onboard RAID processor, which enables hardware based data balancing for ultra low CPU utilization, providing a much more powerful RAID solution compared to traditional software based RAID.
3x USB Power Boost
The GIGABYTE GA-790FXTA-UD5, GA-790XTA-UD4 and GA-770TA-UD3 motherboards feature a 3x USB power boost, delivering greater compatibility and extra power for USB devices. GIGABYTE's unique USB power design is also able to efficiently regulate output over the full voltage range, which greatly enhances USB device compatibility. In addition, dedicated lower resistance fuses ensure lower voltage drops, and provide a more stable and plentiful power delivery.
