Here is something NEW !

Gigabyte has announced the launch of its full range of Dynamic Energy Saver (DES) motherboards, including X48, X38 and P35-based motherboards, which promise power savings of up to 70 percent and up to 20 percent improved power efficiency at the click of a button.

Featuring an advanced proprietary software and hardware design, DES is a unique technology that provides exceptional power savings and improved power efficiency. Its multi-gear power phase design allows for more efficient switching of power phases depending on CPU workload. When the load is light or idle, the DES downshifts gears and only allows the minimum required power phases needed to accomplish the task to operate. By turning off the power phases that are not needed, up to 70 percent energy can be saved compared to traditional motherboards

DES features multiple gears, allowing the CPU to maintain optimum power efficiency from light loads to heavy loads. The provided software allows users to turn on/off the power saving features easily. Not only can users see real-time CPU power consumption in watts, once DES is enabled they can also see how much power they're saving. The following models are available with the new technology:
