  • Excerpt: The computer world was shocked, to say the least, when Intel finally decided to put the Netburst architecture to rest, as well as the Pentium branding. It was quite possibly since the Pentium 4 put a rather sour taste in the computer public's mouth - it was indeed time to start fresh, and the Core branding is a new name for a new architecture, well sort of.

Gigabyte GA-965P-DQ6 Motherboard

29 September 2006
  • Summary: The performance of the DQ6 is comparable to other P965 based motherboards that we've tested. And as expected Intel's i975X is still the chipset of choice for enthusiasts, However, what the DQ6 lacks in certain areas, it definitely makes up in other departments. It's feature rich and offers excellent stability all thanks to the Quade Triple Phase feature, and don't forget the excellent overclocking potential.

Gigabyte GA-965P-DQ6 Review

15 August 2006
  • Conclusion: In a lot of ways, Gigabyte’s GA-965P-DQ6 has been overbuilt. To an enthusiast looking to push his motherboard to the max, that’s definitely a good thing. With 12 power phases onboard, the GA-965P-DQ6 is definitely overbuilt in comparison to other motherboards. No one else out there has a power delivery system as robust as Gigabyte with their GA-965P-DQ6. Running alongside this is their use of all-solid capacitors.

  • Summary: Before I continue it is important to point out exactly why there were no overclocking results included in this review, since it is likely this is what most readers will be interested in. Given the fact that the Gigabyte 965P-DQ6 looks to be geared for the avid overclocker this was one of the first aspects of the board that I looked into.
