GA-G31M-S2C supports Intel latest high performance CPU delivers the most energy-efficient performance available today. Based on Intel's Micro Architecture, the Intel multi-core processors with 4 cores and two shared L2 caches provide the best capability-per-watt solutions and are an ideal choice for multi-media enthusiasts and intensive multi-tasking environments. This cutting-edge processor offers significant performance boosts and provides an overall more energy efficient platform.
Stable system operation depends upon the quality of CPU VRM (voltage regulator module). GIGABYTE adopts Conductive Polymer Aluminum Solid Capacitors for CPU VRM to ensure a longer lifespan for systems in daily operation and boost system stability under extreme conditions. CPU VRM with Solid Capacitors featuring better electronic conductivity, excellent heat resistance enhances system durability even operating in high temperature environment.
Revolutionary PCI Express interface provides scalable bandwidth for multi-purpose usage. PCI-E x16 interface delivers the utmost graphics experience; PCI-E x1interface delivers twice the bandwidth of PCI interface up to 250MB/s for new generation I/O peripheral devices.
Get a jump in memory performance with the advanced technology of DDR2 1066 memory architecture by overclocking, which delivers superior performance for the most demanding applications.
Intel Graphics Media Accelerator 3100 support Microsoft DirectX 9.0 and Windows Vista Aero experience. The 3D enhancement of GMA 3100 highly improves the realism and graphics performance.
The SATA specification doubles bus bandwidth from 1.5Gb/s to 3Gb/s. Native Command Queuing is a new specification that enables out-of-order execution of commands for efficient retrieval of data. Hot Plug support allows users to insert and remove hard disk drives without shutting off power to the system.
