Default Gigabyte GA-EG45M-DS2H review

Until this year integrated graphics were still a major problem lacking in ability to play 3D games or decode H.264 content. AMD changed all of that though with the 780G and 790GX and Nvidia also raised the bar on integrated graphics with the GeForce 8200 and 8300 if not quite as high as AMD was able to. Intel's integrated graphics has been notorious at best and a major problem for the game development community given how popular their integrated graphics are. Intel though has a new chipset which looks to quell some of these problems in the G45, their follow up to the G35. We'll be looking at a board based on this new G45 chipset, Gigabyte's GA-EG45M-DS2H.

The author doesn't even notice that the PCIe slot is in fact x4 and not x16 as he states on page 1.
If he can't notice that from the colour or the fact it's clearly noted in the product specs (page 2), how much faith should we put in the rest of his review?
I'll go with - none.

what are the color codes for PCI Express? is there a standard or does each company use its own preference?

There doesn't seem to be an industry standard for slot colour coding (that I could easily find) but Gigabyte appears to employ blue for x16 (& a 2nd slot in black when dual full x16), orange for x8/x4 and black for x1.
