SLI (Scalable Link Interface) technology has taken off like a bat out of hell and the craze has even seeped over onto the Intel platform as NVIDIA provides the first ever chipset that supports the LGA775 platform. It has all the goodies available on the current NF4 platform, but with a new twist, it is SLI for the Intel crowd. Gigabyte is a company that never misses a beat when it comes to having available motherboards for any given platform and they seem to be a step ahead many times when new chipsets are available for manufactures to implement in their latest boards. With VIA, NVIDIA, and Intel all manufacturing new chipsets there will be plenty of new motherboards hitting the market by this summer.
Although some may complain that overclocking options are spare, this board's target consumer is the gamer. Taking that in mind and with both PCIe slots utilized in an SLI-Mode, overclocking is something of a moot point, as framer rates are at their highest point when setup in this configuration. A few hundred or so MHz of increased CPU power would be almost a waste of time as the hotter and faster a CPU is clocked the less stable many systems become anyways.
Well... You can do gaming without Overclocking. Albeit, most gamers want every FPS they can push out of their system for as little as possible - hence why overclocking is so popular.....i just dont see how overclocking and gaming dont go hand in hand
