Few motherboard manufacturers pack features like Gigabyte does, especially for a mATX motherboard. Of course, we would definitely want to have our cake and eat it too, so we don’t expect anything less from Gigabyte when it comes to raw performance. That is why we pitted it against fiercer competition, the Asus P5WD2 Premium based around the i955 chipset.
