"Gigabyte have been in the motherboard business for quite some time now, while their name isn't as well known as ABIT or ASUS, its still associated with quality and innovative design. It was Gigabyte who first introduced us to dual BIOS motherboards. Gigabyte's contribution to the AMD market came when the AMD Athlon Slot A came out. Gigabyte were among the first group of motherboard makers to introduce a AMD Athlon solution with the Gigabyte GA-7IX. This board was based on the infamous AMD Irongate 750 Northbridge and the AMD Viper Southbridge. This board was one of the most stable Irongate platforms. This board was later replaced with the GA-7VX boasting the new VIA Apollo KX133 chipset. When AMD abandoned the Slot A form factor and moved over to the Socket A format Gigabyte came straight out with a new motherboard which is what were are reviewing today."
