Four Radeon HD2600XT inside, pictured


Gigabyte is the first to jump the guns with RD790 chipset and there will be a few live demos at the show. The chipset has been sampling since Cebit but this will be the first live demo of it.

Gigabyte brands its board as GA-M790-DQ6 with four yet to be announced Radeon HD 2600XT with 256 MB 128 bit memory and passive cooling.

These cards will launch in July at least officially. The motherboard itself supports Athlon AM2+ CPUs and Agena – Phenom X series m four DDR2 and a cheap aluminum , copper painted silent pipe cooling.

you can only get four single slot cards inside and if you use four there will work at 8X mode. Its good to see two PCI slots on the board and six SATA ports.

Here are a few pictures of the board and the system running with the board.





What's the point of having 4 cards if their DX10 drivers don't work? Also, four X2000 cards? Meltdown!!!

I think he used to own an Opty 165, though I may be mistaken.

4 cards is stupid on anything. Even quad core with 2 cards is more than enough for almost anything. Besides that, graphics drivers probably suck, and almost no games would support the kinds of resolutions those cards would put out. Just get 2 of the dual core x1950Pros and don't worry about DX10

These are 2600XT's they are 65nm so heat/power isn't bad on these.
