GIGABYTE United Inc. has launched in India the G31 Series of motherboards based on the Intel G31 chipset. These motherboards use the GIGABYTE Dynamic Energy Saver technology and deliver power savings and better power efficiency to computers. Two models will be available in this series, the GA-EG31M-S2 and the GA-EG31MF-S2.

"GIGABYTE Dynamic Energy Saver Series Motherboards are able to provide exceptional power savings of up to 70% improved power and energy efficiency without sacrificing computing performance, our entry model GA-EG31M-S2 is DES compliant," said Rajan Sharma, General Manager, MB and VGA BU, GIGABYTE India.

The EG31M-S2 Series has the Ultra Durable2 design for its CPU VRM (Voltage Regulator Module). This ensures better cooling, lower power loss and longer lifespan for computers in daily operation, and boosts system stability even under extreme conditions.

The motherboards from the G31 Series are compatible with high-end processors including Intel Core 2 multi-core and 45 nm processors.

The G31 Series comes equipped with a dual Channel DDR2 800 memory, which gives superior performance to the most demanding applications on one's PC.

Armed with the SATA specification, the bus bandwidth of the G31 Series is now doubled from 1.5 Gbps to 3 Gbps. The Native Command Queuing specification enables out-of-order execution of commands for efficient retrieval of data.

The Gigabit network interface delivers a high-speed LAN connection with data transfer rates up to 1000 Mbps. Also supported is the IEEE1394 FireWire interface from Texas Instruments (TI). With transfer speeds of up to 400 Mbps, this interface enhances PC connectivity with consumer electronics audio/video (A/V) appliances, and storage peripherals.
