    And...?

    It still doesn't matter as the product code is not aimed at you and me...It is just a product code to tell the products apart...Generally a company will stick to a good product and continue to use that product until a more suitable product is released...once they know the specs on that mainboard there is no need for them to be told all the time...And really Andy.....if you look on the back of a Mainboard box...it usually has the specs of the product inside...so what is the point of creating a long code that will get people confused because they generally sound and look kind of the same when there is no need for?

    Personally I think Gigabytes coding system is better...it is short and every mainboard code is always easy to tell apart :devil:

    so everybody can stop arguing about Gigabyte's naming, for my understanding, it does have a meaning.

    GA-8IDML

    GA for Gigabyte
    8 ( first letter for CPU) Intel P4
    ID (second and third letter for chipset vender + chipset) Intel brookdale Sdram
    M (forth for form factor) Micro ATX
    L (fifth code for other features) w/AC97 and LAN

    You just have to know and it'll be easy, just like the example from Asus.
