Looking at the initial results from the Gigabyte GA-P35T-DQ6, it is clear we can answer one important question about the board: it does offer performance on par with the ASUS P5K3 Deluxe. In memory bandwidth or latency sensitive applications, it is every bit equal to or better than the ASUS board and any differences are minor. However, when we utilize an application that is clearly CPU limited, we find the ASUS performing slightly better.

That brings us to the $64,000 question: is DDR3 worth the additional 2x cost premium over DDR2 in current market prices? Based on our performance results, the answer would be a qualified no for the time being. This very well could change in the near future as DDR3 pricing falls and performance further improves, but for now DDR3 is probably best suited for those who have a love for new technology. If this is you, then Gigabyte has a board that you just might want to take home today.
The heatsink looks like a video-game level from a Contra game. Image shack is really sucking lately. It takes like 1 minute to upload a picture.
