channel DDR2 800 memory architecture, the GA-N680SLI-DQ6 delivers an additional
boost in memory performance with support for NVIDIA SLI-Ready memory with EPP
technology for one-click access to enhanced memory settings for unlocking even
higher levels of memory performance up to 1200MHz. The GA-N680SLI-DQ6 makes
your gaming experience come further alive with 8 channel High Definition audio
support, delivering the highest levels of sound clarity.

Extending GIGABYTE’s range of Ultra Durable motherboards, the GA-N680SLI-DQ6
delivers several advanced GIGABYTE innovations including an All-solid Capacitor
design, the revolutionary Crazy Cool2 and Silent Pipe2 cooling technologies
featuring an all-new heat pipe design, Quad Gigabit LAN, Quad-Triple Phase power,
QuadBIOS™, and Quad eSATA 3Gb/s with RAID functionality.

Quad-Core Optimized
GIGABYTE has implemented optimized Quad-Core FSB routing and a Quad-Triple phase
power design to ensure the highest levels of performance and stability from
Quad-Core processors. With 4 cores and 2 shared L2 caches, Quad-Core processors
provide the industry’s best capability-per-watt solutions, delivering
significant performance boosts and extended energy efficiency, making them the
ideal choice for multi-media enthusiasts and intensive multi-tasking environments.

Quad SLI-Ready
Supporting NVIDIA Quad SLI technology, with true dual PCI Express x16 connectivity
for up to 4 of the latest NVIDIA GeForce® 8800 GPUs, GIGABYTE Quad SLI ready
motherboards provide flawlessly smooth 3D video rendering and screamingly-fast
frame rates. With an additional PCI Express x8 expansion slot, users are able
to add a standalone physics graphics processor for a significant boost of graphics
performance, taking games to the next level of hyper-realist detail and effects.

Quad Gigabit LAN
Four unique Gigabit LAN connections provide up to 4 x1GB of bandwidth usage,
allowing the PC to function as both a home gateway and game server at the same
time. Supporting NVIDIA Dual-Net Technology with NV TCP/IP Acceleration and
FirstPacket technology, GIGABYTE Quad LAN with Teaming functionality enabled
allows 2 sets of 2GB connections to each act as a single connection for twice
the bandwidth, improving overall throughput with lower CPU utilization.

Quad-Triple Phase
An exclusive feature found only on GIGABYTE motherboards, this unique design
incorporates Virtual 12 Power Phases to deliver steadier power and immediate
current to the CPU and memory during heavy system workloads or overclocking.
Additionally, Quad Triple Phase helps decrease the working temperatures, enhancing
system stability and increasing component lifespan.

QuadBIOS
Quad BIOS is a unique GIGABYTE feature that includes DualBIOS and Xpress BIOS
Rescue Technology. This combination delivers a safety assurance mechanism that
sports a total of 4 copies of BIOS distributed between the Flash ROM, hard-disk
and driver CD. This feature helps to reduce the affects of virus attacks or
firmware damage and provides multi-layer BIOS protection that assures greater
PC platform stability.

Quad e-SATA
Four sets of external SATA ports based on the Serial ATA 3Gb/s storage specification
allow effortless sharing and transfer of entertainment content and digital media
on external devices. Designed for external SATA devices, Quad eSATA2 delivers
enhanced scalability and double the bus bandwidth for high-speed data retrieval
and saving On-The-Go.
