In year 2002, we saw the GA-8INXP and
was impressed by its features. Gigabyte never disappoints us by introducing the
SiS variant of the Dual channel board for the Intel Pentium 4. This board is
another exciting board at the beginning of year 2003. Featuring the SiS 655 A0
stepping chipset, this board supports all the latest Intel P4 CPUs including the
P4 3.06HT processor (as claimed by Gigabyte). The 6 Duals makes its way to the
first high end SiS chipset based P4 board :
Supports Intel Hyper-Threading Technology
Experiencing the extraordinary computing power of Pentium 4
processor with Hyper-Threading Technology. Enabling the system to
multitask more efficiently than ever before when running the most
demanding applications at the same time.
Superb bandwidth AGP 8X graphics interface Featuring AGP 8x (AGP 3.0) the new generation VGA interface
specification, GA-8SQ800 Ultra2 delivers enhanced graphics
performance with high bandwidth up to 2.12GB/s. Allowing users to
have a more realistic graphics experiences while gaming or movie
Dual Channel DDR400 memory architecture With the enhanced Dual Channel DDR400 memory structure,
GA-8SQ800 Ultra2 provides high bandwidth up to 6.4GB/s and high
capacity of 4GB with 4 DIMM slots to ensure greatest memory
DPS Dual Power System (DPS) is the newly developed technology and
applied to enhance the stability of the system. The DPS technology
gives a power circuit with a total of 6 "phases" - twice the amount
recommended by the standard motherboard design guideline. In a DPS
(Dual Power System) designed motherboard, an additional 3-phase
power circuit DPVRM (Dual Power Voltage Regulator Module) daughter
card is added on the motherboard. This effectively provides a more
durable and stable power circuit for intensifying the stability of
current system and for future processors.
