Gigabyte 8TRS300M Motherboard - ATI's first time Pentium 4 chipset

Gigabyte's 8TRS300M motherboard is on the test bench today. It is based on the ATI Radeon 9100IGP chipset for the Pentium 4 and offers the best integrated video performance we have seen to date. HTPC users should focus in on this one, overclockers should not.

Introduction

 

The Intel Pentium 4 now has as many chipsets for it as the AMD Athlon has, and with more to come, will take over as the most varied platform available to us.

 

With just one chipset available at release for over two months, today there are over 10 on offer, with just about all of them putting out good to great performance for the dollars concerned, some with dual channel DDR, some with only single.

 

ATI has become the newest member to start producing chipsets for the PC platform market, inspired by nVidia's success with the nForce2 line, ATI has taken up arms. However, rather than competing with nVidia in the AMD market, they have totally gone the opposite direction and joined the Intel legions by producing a chipset designed for the latest Pentium 4 processors.

 

Gigabyte being the diverse company they have not excluded ATI from its portfolio. In fact we used this motherboard, the 8TRS300M, just recently in our Dual Channel chipset roundup for the Intel Pentium 4. Today we are going to take a more in-depth look at the product and the features ATI brings to the game.
