Gigabyte P35C-DS3R Motherboard Review
Patrick "MACMAC" MacMillan
With the arrival of DDR3, the computer industry is in a transition period. While technological progress is always welcome, it can be a burden for those seeking to buy or build a new computer. This is particularly true for people who intend to keep their main system components for several years. Does one purchase a cheap DDR2 setup with limited upgrade potential, or a pricey DDR3 configuration? Regardless of your point-of-view, Gigabyte has developed a product that should eliminate these concerns. HardwareLogic has just posted a review of the Gigabyte P35C-DS3R motherboard, which features both DDR2 and DDR3 memory slots.
Heres what they had to say:
I've come to expect great things from Gigabyte, their P965 offerings are some of the best motherboards I've ever used. Gigabyte boards offer comparable performance to those currently available from ASUS, at a greatly reduced price. The P35C-DS3R is an incredibly unique board, offering support for both DDR2 and DDR3. It's not simply a hybrid novelty, but a fine option for the person who wants to tinker with different memory technologies while still enjoying the full benefits of an overclocking board, or those looking to buy today but be prepared for when DDR3 hits the prime time.
When I first heard of the P35C-DS3R, I questioned whether both memory formats could be seamlessly supported by the motherboard. Evidently, Gigabytes engineers have succeeded, and the result is a terrific all-around product.
