Product Description

The Intel G965 Express Chipset combines the latest platform technologies, such as Intel Graphics Media Accelerator X3000 with Clear Video Technology, Intel High Definition Audio, and Intel Fast Memory Access to deliver breakthrough performance to your entertainment PC.  Intel Fast Memory Access technology optimizes system performance by maximizing memory bandwidth and reducing the latency of the memory accesses.  Get a jump in memory performance with the advanced technology of DDR2 800 memory architecture, which delivers superior performance for the most demanding applications.  The SATA specification doubles bus bandwidth from 1.5Gb/s to 3Gb/s. Native Command Queuing is a new specification that enables out-of-order execution of commands for efficient retrieval of data. Hot Plug support allows users to insert and remove Hard Drives without shutting off power to the system.  Supporting RAID 0, 1, JBOD function, GIGABYTE SATA2 and PATA Controller delivers completely solution for storage interface to increase fault tolerance, improve data access performance and provides additional interface for more IDE devices.  The Gigabit network interface delivers a high speed LAN connection with data transfer rate up to 1000Mb/s, providing new generation connectivity for the broadband era. Gigabit LAN is ideally for seamless internet connection such as streaming audio and video contents.  Intel High Definition Audio enables 8 channel premium digital sound in the PC for an immersive surround sound experience. In addition, Intel HD Audio delivers multiple audio channels in your PC so you can listen to two different streams simultaneously in two separate rooms.  As a member of the global community to look after the environment, Gigabyte complies with the European Union's Restriction of use of certain Hazardous Substances (RoHS) directive which limits the use of lead, mercury, cadmium and other hazardous substances in electronic products.. From components and material selection to production processes, make up of accessories, packaging/colour boxes etc; GIGABYTE has carefully examined and designed this product to be 100% RoHS compliant. GIGABYTE will continue to develop RoHS compliant PC components and commit valuable resources to promoting and advancing RoHS directive goals and objectives.
