Achieve performance advantages over platforms with fewer lanes, ATI CrossFire technology Otherwise there are also in the area of the store something done, because unlike the other 3 Series chipsets officially support the X38 DDR2 with ECC, so new is the support for using XMP. XMP is the equivalent to Nvidia's SLI Memory or Enhanced Performance Profiles, behind it lies a set of SPD parameters for simplified and improved overclocking using prefabricated sections, this technology is only supported on respective DDR3 modules and is not compatible with EPP for Nvidia chipsets.
The new X38 chipset is different, as mentioned in the introduction, only marginally longer available from the little brother, the P35, in addition to PCI Express 2.0 graphics cards, especially for standing up to 1600 MHz front side bus in the center of the mainboard. This is not an official support of the Intel X38, but a feature of the Gigabyte X38-DG6,
which also absorbs and DDR2-1066 RAM - Intel has officially up to DDR2-800 with the X38 MCH. Here the customer also has the full scoop, as far as the placement of processor and memory in addition, we will offer customers even more flexibility with the reincarnation of the IDE interface.
Gigabyte SATA2 chip realized not only two more SATA2 ports, resulting in the sum then whopping eight SATA2 ports, but also brings an IDE Kanel for up to two devices at the start, said controller is hidden behind the JMicron JMB363, which has the Gigabyte P35C-DS3R was used, to round out the part of the memory interface enhancements provide via the eSATA slot brackets.
Since one of the board followed the concept of a modern Gamer platform, you have completely dispensed with as a parallel ports LPT port or serial COM ports. However with a total of twelve USB 2.0 ports and digital audio playback in optical form via fiber optic or coaxial cable connection to the conventional (RCA), as well as high-speed dual-Gigabit Ethernet, full compatibility ensures Gigabyte, the FireWire-assembly on the back panel, as it has implemented two major types of connection: 4-pin and 6-pin.
