Following an introduction by Colin Brix, Technical Marketing Manager, everyone was welcomed to the press conference by Gigabyte's VP of Motherboard Business Unit Henry Kao. In his opening speech, Mr. Kao emphasized his company's dominance in the USB 3.0 arena, with Gigabyte having sold more USB 3.0 enabled motherboards than any other manufacturer, while also having the largest range of motherboards supporting USB 3.0, from the flagship X58A-UD9 to the budget-oriented GA-EP41T-USB3 (which is actually based on the Intel G41 chipset despite its model name).

Tim Handley, Deputy Director of Motherboard Marketing, then officially began the presentation by revealing that the best overclocking results with the new Intel Core i5-655K and Core i7-875K processors have thus far been achieved on GIGABYTE P55 motherboards, and by highlighting the undeniable popularity of GB's P55 and H55 based motherboards in the enthusiast realm, based on the percentage of HWBot submissions. Afterwards Mr. Handley announced GIGABYTE's numerous new technological innovations like Unlocked Power, HotKey OC, and CloudOC, as well as reiterating noteworthy features like On-Off Charge and 3X USB Power.
