Gigabyte GA-EX58-EXTREME Core i7 Motherboard

Benchmark Reviews
5 December 2008
  • Conclusion: Whenever a new hardware platform launches, I feel that manufacturers owe it to consumers to educate them on the changes. To this extent, Gigabyte does only offers a few tiny bullet points of information pertaining to QPI, and 3-channel memory. What you get is a whole lot of information on Ultra Durable 3 and the benefits of using 2 ounces of copper, some marketing points pertaining to Hybrid Silent-Pipe 2, and a little about Dynamic Energy-Saver.
  • Pros: Outstanding BIOS - designed for overclockers!, Hyrbid Silent-Pipe 2 component improves X58 thermal cooling, Advanced Dynamic Energy Saver Advanced offers VRD 11.1 ultra-low power state, Triple PCI-Express 2.0 compliant graphics slots, BIOS updates are made safe with dual-BIOS, Japanese-manufactured surface mount all-solid capacitors, Blu-Ray/HD DVD Full rate audio with DTS connect, Supports three-way ATI CrossFireX and NVIDIA SLI video card sets, Industry-leading ther...
  • Cons: Expensive motherboard solution, Complicated BIOS is not for novice overclockers, Kit does not include SLI bridge component, Lacks Serial Attached SCSI (SAS) onboard support, Independent core multipliers are not available, Turbo Boost not available when overclocking

Gigabyte EX58-Extreme Motherboard

27 November 2008
  • Summary: If we set aside the current economic climate, the great and continued success of Intel’s Core 2 Duo/Quad, and the likelihood that few, if any games and programmes will be fully optimized to use all 8 threads of the Intel Core i7 920, then the Gigabyte GA EX-58 Extreme is an excellent motherboard. It comes laden with plenty of connectivity, and the Hybrid Silent Pipe Module will be an attractive feature for those wanting a high end motherboard.
  • Pros: - Excellent performance, - Support for Intel's new Core i7 Processors, - Support new Tri-Channel memory, - New LGA socket 1366, - Excellent overclocking potential, - Feature Rich, - Power saving green credentials, - Tri SLI and CrossFire
  • Cons: - PRICE ... It's extremely expensive, - As with many new products there will be a price premium, - Not your usual upgrade ... ie you'll need a new processor, new ram and new cooling
