GIGABYTE @ Computex 2011: Motherboards, Graphics cards, Smartphones and more
Unlike most component manufacturers, GIGABYTE has opted to host its booth at Hall 1 of the Taiwan World Trade Centre, an area which is usually centered more on enterprise solutions as opposed to the more enthusiast-oriented Nangang.

According to GIGABYTE, the Z68XP-UD5 sports an "industry-leading 20 phase power VRM design for optimum power efficiency", along with other standard features such as Intel Smart Response technology and support for 3-way SLI and CrossFireX.

Last but not least, GIGABYTE also had its line of PSUs up on display at its booth as well:
