Motherboard maker Gigabyte unveiled the specifications of three new motherboards with the AMD 790FX chipset. The GA-MA790X-DS4, GA-MA790X-DS5 and GA-MA790X-DQ6 all have support for AMD's upcoming AM2+ Phenom processors, 1066MHz DDR2 memory and PCI Express.

The GA-MA790FX-DQ6 is the most advanced version. This motherboard uses a special cooling system with two heatpipes and features support for CrossFireX. The other two motherboards only support regular CrossFire.



The boards will be available later this month. Here's a list of the features of each motherboard:

GA-MA790X-DS4:
  1. Supports AMD AM2+ Phenom™/ AM2 Athlon™ 64 series processors
  2. Dual Channel DDR2 1066* memory support for remarkable system performance
  3. Dual PCI-E 2.0 x16 graphics interfaces with ATI CrossFireX™ support for extreme gaming performance
  4. Integrated SATA 3Gb/s with RAID function
  5. Features high speed Gigabit Ethernet and IEEE1394
  6. High quality 8-ch ALC889A High Definition audio, featuring 106dB Signal to Noise Ratio and Full Rate Lossless Audio with Blu-ray/ HD DVD playback support.
  7. Ultra Durable 2 motherboard features High Quality CPU Power design with Ferrite core chokes, Low RDS (on) MOSFET and Solid Capacitors.
  8. Durable Capacitors that take advantage of Japanese manufactured Solid Capacitors for enhanced system durability
