Gigabyte GA-X38DS55 - a cheaper X38

Posted on Thursday, Oct 11 2007 @ 03:25 CEST by Thomas De Maesschalck
Tweaktown reports that besides the GA-X38-DQ6 motherboard Gigabyte will also have a (slightly?) more affordable GA-X38-DS5.
The only real difference that we can notice is a missing Ethernet port, which isn’t a big deal for most. There’s no mention of the copper heatpipe in the unique features sections for the GA-X38-DS5. The boards even seem to come with the same accessories, so we can’t quite figure this one out, as this can’t save Gigabyte a lot of money and this is usually why there’s a cut-down version of a better board.

Either which way, this is what the board will look like and if you’re happy with a single LAN connector and want to save some cash, then this might be the X38 board of your choice.
