Gigabyte GA-780SLI-DS5 780i SLI motherboard pictured

Posted on Wednesday, November 07 2007 @ 14:20:44 CET by

TweakTown has even more Gigabyte goodness for us today. They've just published a photo of the upcoming Gigabyte GA-780SLI-DS5 780i SLI motherboard.

This isn't the highest-end model but it still has a wide range of features and should enter mass-production soon.
As with all 780i boards, only the blue PCI Express x16 slots are PCI Express 2.0, due to the fact that it’s the N200 controller that adds PCI Express 2.0 functionality. In addition to the three x16 PCI Express slots, there’s a single x1 slot and two PCI slots. However, if you’re running three-way SLI, all the other slots will be blocked.

We also got a shot of the rear of the board and it looks like Gigabyte has changed the rear I/O layout on this one. The board will have two PS/2 ports, a serial port, optical and coaxial S/PDIF out, FireWire, dual Gigabit Ethernet, eight USB 2.0 ports, two eSATA and finally 7.1-channel audio jacks. There’s also six SATA ports, all angled at the edge of the board and a single IDE and floppy connector just above them.
