TweakTown has some more details about Gigabyte's upcoming P45 DQ6 motherboard that sports four Ethernet ports and a true hardware RAID implementation.
It’s important to remember that it carries all the new features which Gigabyte has been working on the for the past 2 or 3 years such as all solid capacitors and DES but it steps it up a notice with a feature that Gigabyte is calling “Ultra Secure”. Extremely fine tuning every part of the system one by one, it looks like on the surface.

Ultra Secure implements true Hardware RAID powered by Jmicron and switch by Silicon Image (RAID 0 and 1 – there are two chips to the DQ6 motherboard so you can run RAID 0 and RAID 1 at the same time). There is 128k memory onboard the chip and we’re told it’s very easy to setup in the BIOS. Keep in mind that the motherboard itself has software RAID through the ICH10R Southbridge, so if you really wanted to, you could run three separate RAID arrays on a single motherboard without the need of spending extra money on a separate RAID controller.
