Our friends over at VR Zone report Gigabyte has a new concept for its upcoming Intel P35 based motherboards. The Ultra Durable 2 series uses Ferrite Core Chokes and Low RDS MOSFETs, the first products with this will be available in May and there won't be a premium price compared to the current motherboards.

Here are the benefits of the new design:
Ferrite core chokes have higher energy efficiency compared to the commonly used iron core chokes because they are able to store energy longer and prevent rapid energy loss at higher frequency. Low RDS(on) MOSFETs, on the other hand, have a lower resistance which reduces power consumption and heat. With these, Gigabyte touts benefits like enhanced reliability, lower working temperature, longer life-span and better overclocking capabilities for their Ultra Durable 2 series.
