It is primarily a 2D application using imported graphics or digital footage or self generated effects. The slight overclock pulls it out in front. It is easily seen how three PCI slots are taken up leaving only two between the video card and bottom PCI based options. It would be more logical to follow a progression of installing the OS and drivers then cover the add-on features. Softimage performs its best on a dual processor system and by far the recommendation for heavy 3D rendering is a dual processor AMD system.

Larger northbridge heatsinks are becoming more common on motherboards today to satisfy the needs of overclockers.

Quake III high quality. Also the floppy header has been placed beside it above the four IDE headers. The board also supports 8x AGP video cards. The answer is quite simple. Gigabyte could have taken a page from other makers and put two more USB ports on the backplane along with the audio sub channel and rear surround speakers and there is an obvious reason why. Perhaps Gigabyte is thinking the second drive is at the other side of the PC case.

Other than that tip it was all rather simple and painless. Softimage XSI can simply bring any computer to 7vax; knees. In order to look at a finished frame a user must render the frame to disk which bypasses the GPU.


The northbridge is covered by a larger copper heatsink. This is also another first with color codes. It should be a MHz bus speed…. The enthusiasts, the perfectionists, the picky people may want to give this board a look but may end up following their own paths elsewhere.

Just for orientation the top of the picture is the backplane edge of the motherboard. Larger heatsinks will be more easily accommodated. Why are these reviews so in-depth? Take a first look at the motherboard. Gigabyte would gain a few points if they spun the socket 90 degrees clockwise. Notice the white power connection module.

The designers working on the test system use Softimage on a less complex level to provide enhancements and elements to commercials, promos and station ID elements.

The plus side to SATA are the cables. It is primarily a 2D application using imported graphics or digital footage gigabytr self generated effects.

You have to keep digging to get to the motherboard. Rendering, or the task of building and compiling frames, is mainly CPU intensive and After Effects generally bypasses the video card and relies solely on the processor for speed.


They also have my respect for the envelopes they push. Stable not one crash during our tests.

The PCI slot brackets are a-plenty. The slight overclock pulls it out in front.
