Default Gigabyte MA78G-DS3H Motherboard

Gigabyte is full of ambitions to fight with ASUS for the top place in the rating of leading motherboard manufacturers. It's no secret that ASUS makes mistakes from time to time. In particular, it occasionally delays fine-tuning BIOS in new motherboards, so the first buyers become beta testers (and their negative reviews negatively affect company's image). However, it does not mean that other manufacturers offer only fine-tuned products. When users buy brand new motherboards, they are usually ready to face minor problems, which will be fixed a tad later in new updated BIOS versions. Objectively, ASUS is winning the battle owing to its wide product range. It even offers motherboards on the rarest chipsets, while other manufacturers have no resources or desire to produce them. Sometimes, there are even several modifications of such products, which are most importantly available in retail stores. Speaking of motherboards based on popular chipsets, they just flood the market.

To all appearances, Gigabyte has chosen a different strategy: the company offers only a couple of models based on each chipset that is most attractive technically and economically. Even though the product range is narrower, users (and reviewers) have no problems determining the target audience of a given product and its differences from its "sisters" in the family and competitors. In particular, we've tested a motherboard based on the AMD 780G chipset -- Gigabyte MA78GM-S2H. In brief, it was the most feature-rich integrated microATX motherboard of all current solutions. And this is no bias. As for today's motherboard, along with the full-size form-factor (which is attractive itself, because it makes the board more interesting for universal PC builders), Gigabyte equipped it with two graphics slots that can operate in the CrossFire mode.
