Many years back Asus is king, Giga is a startup.

Then they merge.

Then after a while, Asus and Giga split op again.

Shortly after that Giga comes out with their famous DS3 mobos for first gen Conroes.

Make a guess.

Gigabyte copy ASUS technology? Hmmm... I don't know... They are similar but so are the other brands. In the end, their references are Intel and AMD boards, aren't they?
A blade cuts both ways. So why take the risk? Stab instead.

Isn't Gigabyte the one that started those power effeciency mobos in the first place. Well Asus is good for their R.O.G mobos, kudos to that.

Gigabyte were using this sort of tech on their vid cards, so yes Gigabyte was first.

I thought the power-saving and green campaign are started of by the CPU makers and thus their reference motherboard, for the stake of image, board-makers will of course join in the fun. But the energy-efficient thing is not going fine with me considering most of the Asus and Bigabyte boards are made to be overclocked.

I am running E2180 at 1.8Ghz at 1.1V with ABIT IP35-E with only Crystal-CPUID.
FSB on the fly? Set-FSB lor.
Multiplier on the Fly? CPUID loh. Can pre-defined voltages and so on, just that I cannot further undervolt in Bios other than the default settings.

No need EPU. Anyway, 1 point taken - the EPU did not switch off the power phrase for P5K unlike the high end model with 8 phrase, since P5K only have 4 phrase.

Oh yeah, reminds me... I do remember MSI doing the same campaign on power-saving. So far ABIT haven't yet, so does DFI... right??

Gigabyte is more or less on par with Asus when they merge. That's why Gigabyte has a 51% share in the joint venture.
