In general the system board is good. We were never able to start the system in this way with a memory multiplier that wasn’t allowed for the given FSB frequency by the latest version of BIOS. It decomposes regular stereo signal into channels to create a 3-D sound effect when a multi-channel system is connected via analog connection. By all means, since the release of i an important issue for any system board is the IDE controller being used because the chipset no longer includes one. A brand Gigabyte EasyTune utility significantly expands automatic control capabilities.

PC technology is also implemented. The second part is less evident. Two rather small aluminum heat sinks are responsible for cooling the chipset.

All in all, the controller passed our tests perfectly well – “clean and clear”. Gigabyte traditionally produces gigabyye multitude of models for every new chipset. However, its mothrrboard and interface are certainly more modest: English language user’s guide and a multi-language instructions diagram for installing an Intel CPU and the boxed cooler onto the board; Cables: In addition to the BIOS capabilities mentioned above except adjusting PCI Express bus frequency, for some reason it also allows to flexibly regulate memory voltage up to 2.

This method is different from using the traditional utilities like Acronis True Image only in that one doesn’t have to boot-up from CD to perform restoration. Intel Core 2 Duo E 2. We shall highlight that the speed data presented here are absolutely correct in the sense that under equal conditions a system board based on G33 will finish showing a Doom 3 gameplay demo scene before a system board based on G given the same game engine settings.


The motherboard allows accessing a boot-up device selection menu by pressing a specified key during POST procedure. It is not limited in functionality like the “office” modelsneither is it multimedia-oriented like the “digital home” models.

Finally, there is Performance Enhance option Standard, Turbo, Extremewhich, perhaps, operates with additional memory timings and is really effective when turned on details will be discussed below in testing results section. The way they heat up brings back the unpleasant memories of system boards based on G, although G33 produces much less heat. The 6 channel impulse CPU supply voltage stabilizer uses 2 field giyabyte per channel, 4 capacitors of microfarad and 16 V each as well as 9 capacitors of microfarad and 2.

In general the system board is good. It required no updating of special managers in order to work with disk images motherbooard no updating of Windows XP drivers.

Gigabyte GA-G33M-S2L – motherboard – micro ATX – LGA775 Socket – G33

Auto or can set multiplier relative to FSB frequency: This model’s form factor is microATX, which is typical of integrated boards, but the similarity ends there. Integrated controllers Audio controller is based on channel 7. Indeed, there is no free space on the board’s surface, which diminishes convenience of assembling and upgrading the system. Even in the first generation of Ultra Durable board series quality polymer capacitors with low ESR value equivalent series resistance were used not only in the CPU supply circuit, but all across the board.


The set of brand utilities includes the following useful programs: Perhaps, the users of old interface devices will find this solution appealing.

We were never able to start the system in this way with a memory multiplier that wasn’t allowed for the given FSB frequency by the latest version of BIOS. Therefore, such configuration demonstrates a drop in performance due to additionally operating GMA This particular model has no digital video- and audio-out sockets and clearly requires an installation of extra expansion cards and brackets.

This makes it possible to perform a single boot-up, from a CD-drive for example, without the inconvenience of having to make changes in BIOS Setup. Sandy Motheerboard Trying out the new method. Very good – the quality of the analog mltherboard output according to our test results is very high even for an HDA codec.

Since Performance Enhance option in BIOS has actually proven itself to be effective, we present results for the model being examined in Standard and in Extreme mode separately.

Brand technologies and features Xpress Recovery 2 – restoring a previously saved image of a hard disk partition using an integrated BIOS utility. How attractive is such a product for the buyers? Considering the current level of controller integration it will hardly be a problem for many users.
