2012/08/21   

Taipei, Taiwan, August 21, 2012 – GIGABYTE TECHNOLOGY Co. Ltd., a leading manufacturer of motherboards and graphics cards, today announced that the entire range of currently available GIGABYTE motherboards is ready for Microsoft’s Windows 8 operating system.

GIGABYTE Ultra Durable™ motherboards are known for their reliable longevity, as was recently demonstrated in the GIGABYTE Hidden Gems competition where 74% of the submissions featured GIGABYTE motherboards that were 5 years or older, and one outstanding entry used a 21 year old GIGABYTE motherboard that is still operational today! With this caliber of Ultra Durability in mind, GIGABYTE engineers have been working tirelessly to ensure that current motherboards will be able to handle the demands of the next gen OS.

For more information about Windows 8 optimized motherboards from GIGABYTE, please visit the GIGABYTE Windows 8 web page: http://www.gigabyte.com/MicroSite/314/windows8.html.

Note: Some advanced Windows 8 features require optimized specifications such as a touch screen monitor, a UEFI BIOS, and an SSD that may not be available in every legacy and entry-level system.
