    GIGABYTE First to Market with AM3+ “Black Socket” Motherboards

    Enabling Support for AMD Next Generation CPUs for Current AMD 800/700 Series Chipset Motherboards





    City of Industry, California, March, April 01 2011 – GIGABYTE INC., a leading manufacturer of motherboards and graphics cards today announced a new line of 16 “Black Socket” motherboards previously unveiled at CeBIT 2011 that offer support for AMD’s next generation , 32nm AM3+ CPUs and are based on current generation AMD 800/700 series chipset-based motherboards.


    Wanting to ensure users their motherboard is able to take advantage of all the performance enhancements that AMD’s upcoming AM3+ CPUs have to offer, GIGABYTE has equipped their entire line of AM3+ CPU ready motherboards with a new black colored socket, making it easy to spot for AM3+ support. In addition, GIGABYTE “Black Socket” series offer full backwards compatibility with AMD’s current generation AM3 socket CPUs, allowing for painless migration to the AM3+ CPUs when they become available.

    Yes we have flat black PCB on the whole board. Maybe AMD will soon follow?

    I am more curious to know what the performance of the new chip will be? will it finally compete with an i7 Quad or even the 6 Core?

    I was really disapointed on AMD's last "BIG" release to find out it only competed against a QX series while intels had released the i7 a year prior. that was a big ball dropped imo?

    don't get me wrong, I am an intel user too, but I remember the AMD overclocking days and I would like them to comeback and give these i7's and the P67's a run for their money. give intel a reason to bring thier prices down. as right now their new chips are over priced imo.
