Really enjoyed this review...honestly, not because of the specifics of the Gigabyte motherboard but because of your comments throughout concerning integrated video chipsets, comparing/contrasting what's available, etc.

I do have to say, though...I was impressed with the layout of the Gigabyte mobo around the cpu. It does look like they put some real effort into keeping the error clear for coolers.

I didn't think there would be that much improvement over the 3200 mGPU on the 780G boards but the tests doen't lie. lol Impressive difference to me, anyways.

Where there any other significant changes between the 3200 and 3300 implementation of mGPU besides the huge increase in core speed?
Was that the only real reason for the increase in mGPU performance?

Thanks for ther review, Ben.

this would be a nice board for htpc. Too bad AMD CPU just not as powerful as Intel.
