Default Gigabyte EP35-DS4: DES in Action

Now the current trend is focusing on energy more than ever, regardless whether to cut costs at the end of the month or the simple knowledge that over half of the United States energy is produced from coal, therefore lower energy consumption translates into less coal pollution. When many consumers are penny pinching wherever they can, companies like Gigabyte and ASUS have decided to begin marketing energy saving motherboards not to a niche market, but to the masses. For this article we will put one of these new Gigabyte Dynamic Energy Saver (DES) motherboards to the test with a power hungry Q6600 QuadCore processor. We will see if you can really save power without compromising your computers performance or more importantly its stability. By the end of this review we will find out if DES shows any appreciable value or is just more marketing hype to take advantage of the greener marketplace. http://www.bjorn3d.com/read.php?cID=1255
