Gigabyte has taken this particular bull by the horns and have applied
a very unique (so far) technology to the board. This is on top of all
the other marketing and engineering terms that we are quite familiar
with. The company itself is one of the top three manufacturers of
motherboards in the world, and they typically trail Asus in terms of
shipments but are still ahead of MSI. As with any motherboard
manufacturer, the quality of Gigabyte products has seen peaks and
valleys through the years. From what I have seen for the past few
years though, Gigabyte is doing very well in terms of overall quality
and value.

Quote: "Overall the GA-F2A85X-UP4 is a well rounded board with some
very interesting features. It has been a solid and stable motherboard
throughout testing, and the performance is right on par with the best
in the industry. The price is very reasonable for what is offered and
the end user can see the value that they have with all the extras
built onto the board.

The only problem is the CPU that is placed in it. Trinity is a good
product, but it is not a great product. Enthusiasts are not flocking
to it. While it is doing well in desktop applications that do not
require heavy CPU power and better than average graphics, it does not
require a motherboard nearly as stout as what Gigabyte offers."
