Default Gigabyte P45-DQ6 has four Ethernet ports

Expreview found photos of Gigabyte's P45-DQ6 motherboard. The weirdest thing about this motherboard is that it has four Ethernet ports, I'm not sure why you would need so many. The P45-DQ6 has 12 PWMs for the CPU, 3 for the Northbridge and another 3 for the memory.
