GIGABYTE DDR2/DDR3 Combo Motherboard: The Upgraders Choice
A Year for Upgrades
2007 is proving to be a watershed year for technology upgrades with the Microsoft Window's Vista launch at the beginning of the year, DDR3, DX10 applications (games) and VGA cards, HDMI and of course the highly anticipated Intel 45nm CPUs and 3 Series (Bearlake) chipsets that are set to take the market by storm.

Making the most of your Upgrade: Future-proofing
When choosing a new motherboard for your system, it makes sense to look for one with support not only for the latest features and technologies, but also for ones that will be available in the near future. DDR3 is currently such a technology because despite its recent introduction, it is only expected to be mainstream in 12 to 18 months time. Enter the GIGABYTE GA-P35C-DS3R DDR2/DDR3 combo motherboard that works with both DDR2 and DDR3 memory – arguably the most "future-proof" motherboard solution on the market today.
Upgrade to DDR3 Anytime in Future with the Same Motherboard
The P35C-DS3R motherboard allows computer DIY enthusiasts to use their existing DDR2 memory while enjoying all the other new features and technologies on the board until they are ready to upgrade to DDR3. Then of course they can simply slot in the new high-speed DDR3 and enjoy their new upgrade to it's fullest.
Longer Motherboard Lifespan: Ultra Durable 2
Another key feature of the P35C-DS3R is the Ultra Durable 2 design from GIGABYTE. This means that the board employs specially designed Low RDS(on) MOSFETS that run cooler than other MOSFETs, Ferrite Core Chokes providing that optimize power savings (are more power efficient) and expensive Japanese manufactured SMD (Solid Mount Device)Capacitors for extended system durability. These Ultra Durable 2 features translate into better power efficiency and cooler operation.
Ultra Cooling
Low RDS(on) MOSFET Design
Low RDS(on) MOSFETs are specially designed to produce lower switching resistance for faster electric current charging and discharging.
Low Power Loss
Core Energy Loss
Ferrite Core Choke Design
Ferrite core chokes are comprised of a compound of iron-oxide and other metal elements whose properties hold energy much longer than common iron-core chokes at high frequency.
Longer Life
Operation Lifetime
All-Solid Capacitor Design
Solid capacitors contain a solid organic polymer, while electrolytic capacitors use a common liquid electrolyte.


GIGABYTE Ultra Durable 2 motherboards enjoy on average a 33°C cooler CPU zone temperature than most competing motherboards. Cooler temperatures mean greater system stability, less wear and tear on your motherboard (less PCB warping and heat related damage) and longer component lifespan.
All the Very Latest Features and Technologies
The P35C-DS3R sports the Intel® P35 chipset with support for the latest multi-core processors up to FSB 1333MHz as well as Intel's upcoming 45nm platform, with its record breaking performance and greater energy efficiency. In addition, the board will support Intel® Turbo Memory with its faster boot times, improved system responsiveness and quicker application loading.

Naturally, the P35C-DS3R supports Windows Vista Premium and a full range of High-Def entertainment features including both Blu-ray and HD DVD formats for an exhilarating home theater entertainment experience.

Lastly, with its top quality, highly efficient components, the P35C-DS3R is able to deliver cooler working temperatures and enhanced reliability, making it one of the highest overclocking P35 motherboards on the market. In fact, According to Tom's Hardware's Eight P35-DDR2 Motherboards Compared, the GIGABYTE GA-P35C-DS3R is "worth a closer look because it can use today's top-performing DDR2 memory while maintaining future compatibility with faster DDR3 modules, overclocks extremely well, and puts up good overall performance numbers."
