Meer nieuws van Gigabyte, op Overclockers' Workbench staat namelijk de press-release van de GA-BX2000+ BX moederplaat. Features zijn o.a. ATA 66, 4 USB ports, core voltage tweaking, DualBIOS™ technology en Suspend-to-RAM (STR) power management. Hieronder de rest van de info:
GA-BX2000+ has the Intel 440BX AGP chipset with the 100MHz-system clock (with ability to adjust the voltage and set the system bus up to 150MHz) and supports the Pentium II/III family of CPU Processor chips from 200 to 600MHz, with slot 1. The GA-BX2000+ has main bus clock speed of 66 /100 MHz, a clock multiplier of 3.0 / 3.5 /4.0 / 4.5 / 5.0/ 5.5 all the way up to 9.0. On this mainboard it has 4-100 MHz 168 pin DIMM sockets and supports every DIMM Memory chips from 8MB to 256MB, with a total of 1GB. The chipset consists of the Intel 82440 BX AGP set, ITE 8671 I/O set (1MB/s) and the Winbond 83782 Health chip. What a great combination, it's right on the cutting edge. To go on, there is one APG slot for your Video card, six PCI slots and one ISA slot. It supports 2 UDMA/66 IDE ports (up to 4 Ultra ATA 66 Devices), 2 UDMA/33 IDE ports (up to 4 ATAPI Devices), PIO Mode 3,4 UDMA/IDE & ATAPI CD-ROM, four USB Ports, PS/2 mouse and keyboard. There is support on the main board for 3 fans, 1 CPU, 1 power supply fan, and 1 case fan. There is a sensor under the processor, which is in contact with the processor. It will sense the temperature of the CPU and send it to the CMOS for you to see. You can set your limits on the temperature and have it give you an alarm if it’s beyond that setting. The good thing did not stop here, this board also can detect the power supply voltage, CPU voltage, and also the fan rotation speed. All this information not only can be found inside the CMOS setting, it also can be display under Windows 95/98 and Windows NT by running the Gigabyte’s SIV (System Information Viewer) or the Intel’s LDCM (LANDesk Client Manager) software. With all these System Health monitoring functions added to this board, you never have to worry about your system will fail due to CPU overheat. There is also a buzzer built on the board, so you don’t have to use the case speaker. The computer can be powered up by Keyboard, mouse, LAN, RTC Alarm, and Modem Ring.
