The motherboard allows accessing a boot-up device selection menu by pressing a specified key during POST procedure. Integrated controllers Audio controller is based on channel 7. The first model based on Intel G33 chipset that was tested in our lab has turned out to be rather interesting. Consumed Power, Energy Consumption: CPU fan connector provides automatic rotation frequency control functionality.

Gigabyte GA-G33-DS3R – motherboard – ATX – LGA775 Socket – G33

It’s a pity the integrated graphics adapter has turned out to motherboar essentially useless, while the chipset could have had a better cooling system. In addition to the BIOS capabilities mentioned above except adjusting PCI Express bus frequency, for some reason it also allows to flexibly regulate memory voltage up to 2.

Nevertheless, it is pleasing to note once more how enabling integrated graphics has nearly no effect on system performance. The lack of digital video-out sockets there is only one, and an it is an analog D-Sub at that and digital audio-in and -out sockets, which are in high demand for household media centers, weakens the position of Gigabyte G33M-DS2R in comparison to its competitors from the user’s point of view.

All in all, the controller passed our tests perfectly well – “clean and clear”. In fact, it provides all of the modern functionalities though not an abundance thereof.

This makes it possible to perform a single boot-up, from a CD-drive for example, without the inconvenience of having to make changes in BIOS Setup.

Nevertheless, the use of PCIEx4 slot the maximum possible option that utilizes all free PCI Express chipset lines along with an extra slot on the side, which in theory allows installing a PCIEx16 form-factor card in it, speaks for itself.


Despite the much earlier release and the higher model number of the integrated video accelerator GMA used in G33 has a much simpler architecture than X BioShock Infinite and Metro: It that case the system board really turns out to be interesting, because in comparison to its full-sized competitors it lacks only the two expansion slots. The memory modules were provided by Corsair. Please enable JavaScript to view the comments powered by Disqus.

While running this utility in Windows one can set the upper and the lower temperature bounds within which the rotation frequency changes proportionally to temperature changeas well as desired cooler rotation speed for the temperatures below the lower bound including an ability to completely stop the fan.

It is curious though, how the usually scrupulous Gigabyte user’s guide has no mention of this JMicron’s controller and the block diagram shows IDE interface to be provided by the chipset.

This model’s form factor is microATX, which is typical of integrated boards, but the similarity ends there. One of the main design disadvantages is the fact that memory modules are blocked in their slots by the video card.

Sergey Pikalov peek ixbt. Of course, you are not going to see two full-size graphics slots on a microATX board.

The first part becomes obvious when one looks at the list of the board’s additional controllers and peripheral ports. Gigabyte traditionally produces a multitude of models for every new chipset.

The reviewed model on the manufacturer’s website The motherboard was provided by the manufacturer. Besides, it is unlikely that anyone would want to set up CrossFire specifically on Gigabyte G33M-DS2R when plenty of more convenient options are available on the market. Since Performance Enhance option in BIOS has actually proven itself to be effective, we present results for the model being examined in Standard and in Extreme mode separately. Consumed Power, Energy Consumption: Such technology reduces power consumption and, consequently, heating of these components.


Sandy Bridge Trying out the new method. Indeed, there is no free space on the board’s surface, which diminishes convenience of assembling and upgrading the system.

We were never able to start the system in gjgabyte way with a memory multiplier that wasn’t allowed for motgerboard given FSB frequency by the latest version of BIOS. Video 3Digests Video cards: It is not limited in functionality like the “office” modelsneither is it multimedia-oriented like the “digital home” models. Also, the particular placement of IDE socket makes it difficult to connect a cable to it. Despite its small size the system board motherborad to being called a top product.

A brand Gigabyte EasyTune utility significantly expands automatic control capabilities. Perhaps, the users of old interface devices will find this solution appealing. However, in order for the new memory multiplier to come into effect one has to reboot the system. The first model based on Intel G33 chipset that was tested in our lab has turned out to be rather interesting.
