Here's Gigabyte's response to Asus:
GIGABYTE UNITED INC., a leading manufacturer of motherboards and graphics cards would like to respond to recent statements by our competitor alleging GIGABYTE has made false claims against them. These statements were made in response to a report GIGABYTE detailed for the media which compared GIGABYTE’s 4-Gear and 6-Gear Dynamic Energy Saver technology to our competitor’s non-phase change and 2-Gear Phase changing energy saving technology. In addition, direct comparisons and testing results were reported between the GIGABYTE GA-EP35-DS3L motherboard and our competitor’s P5K-SE EPU.

While GIGABYTE would like to express regret over any confusion this situation may have caused our competitor’s customers, we do stand by our statements and testing report 100%, and eagerly await our competitor to clarify the issues we raised in order to avoid any further confusion.

In 2006, GIGABYTE was the first motherboard manufacturer to implement a higher quality, All-Solid capacitor design. In 2007, GIGABYTE further raised the bar with their Ultra Durable 2 design, which featured the highest quality components for the most durable, stable and lowest temperature platform. In addition to using All-Solid capacitors, GIGABTE was the first manufacturer to utilize more advanced components including Lower RDS(on) MOSFETs and Ferrite Core Chokes. While these more expensive components raised production costs, GIGABYTE felt the improved energy efficiency and lower operation temperatures brought about a large improvement in overall performance for our customers.

In 2008, GIGBYTE again set a new standard with the introduction of their Dynamic Energy Saver (DES) technology, the world’s first energy saving technology motherboards to feature up to 6 gears of power phase switching. Featuring a combination of hardware and software design, DES has proven to be an industry breakthrough and has received wide acclaim from media and end users alike by enhancing power efficiency up to 20% and providing CPU power savings up to 70%.

GIGABYTE promises to continue providing higher quality, better spec and greater performance products to our customers and will continue to develop new technologies to provide the safest, fastest, quietest, most convenient, most secure and most energy efficient computing experience possible. While other motherboard manufacturers have followed GIGABYTE’s lead by introducing higher quality components on their products as well, GIGABYTE hopes this trend continues, as higher quality products not only strengthen the motherboard industry as a whole, but provides the best win-win situation for end users.
