GIGABYTE Extends Ultra Durable 2 Range with GeForce® 9400 GT Series Graphics Accelerators
Quality Components make Quality VGA cards More Power Phases = Lower System Temperature + Extreme Power Efficiency

Taipei, Taiwan, August 26, 2008 –GIGABYTE UNITED INC., a leading manufacturer of motherboards and graphics cards, today is pleased to announce the launch of their new GV-N94T-512H graphics accelerator, equipped with NVIDIA's latest GeForce® 9400 GT graphics processor. The GIGABYTE GV-N94T-512H features the GeForce® 9400 GT with 128bit 512MB DDR2 memory, delivering the highest levels of sophisticated game rendering for a greatly enhanced gaming experience. Transporting users into a new realm of gaming excitement, the GIGABYTE GV-N94T-512H supports HDCP (High-bandwidth Digital Content Protection), providing the highest quality, High-Definition video for the ultimate home theater experience.

The GIGABYTE GV-N94T-512H leads the industry for top quality design featuring GIGABYTE's unique Ultra Durable 2 Technology. With highly efficient components including ferrite core choke coils, low RDS(on) MOSFETs and all Japanese manufactured SMD mounted solid capacitors, GIGABYTE Ultra Durable 2 graphics cards ensure the highest levels of reliability and stability, cooler working temperatures and enhanced overclocking capabilities for today's high performance, high definition platforms.

Lower RDS(on) MOSFETs – Ultra Cooling
A MOSFET (Metal Oxide Semiconductor Field Effect Transistor) is a switch that allows or stops electric current to pass through an electric circuit. GIGABYTE Ultra Durable 2 graphics cards utilize Lower RDS(on) MOSFETs. These differ from regular MOSFETS in that they are specially designed to produce lower switching resistance and utilize lower power consumption. The result is faster electric current charging and discharging and less heat generation.

Ferrite Core Choke Design – Low Power Loss
If the MOSFET is in the "on" state, the current will then flow to the choke. A choke is an inductor that stores energy and regulates current. Choke coils help to prevent Electromagnetic Interference (EMI) and Radio Frequency Interference (RFI) from the power supply from interfering with the power circuit. Instead of using the traditional iron core chokes, GIGABYTE Ultra Durable 2 graphics cards feature Ferrite Chokes that are comprised of a compound of iron-oxide and other metal elements. These metal properties hold energy much longer than common iron-core chokes at high frequency, resulting in lower power loss.

All Solid Capacitors – Longer Life
From the choke, the current then passes through a capacitor. The capacitor stores electricity and delivers it to the component requiring power such as the GPU. GIGABYTE uses all Solid Capacitors to deliver maximum stability, reliability and longer system lifetime for general PC usage as well as for improved overclocking performance.

Integrated with NVIDIA Extreme High Definition (XHD) to enhance graphics resolution, the GIGABYTE GV-N94T-512H supports the latest video output interfaces, including Dual Dual-Link DVI, for the highest dual 2560X1600 screen resolution. Differing from past GPU generations, the NVIDIA GeForce® 9400 GT also features a dedicated on-chip video processor for superb picture quality and ultra smooth video playback.
