Based on extensive lab testing and previous graphics card development, the GIGABYTE VGA engineering group has designed a revolutionary new VGA card cooling technology which utilizes natural convection inside the chassis to disperse heat. Similar to the principle of turbulence in fluid dynamics, Silent-Pipe 3¢â introduces an all-new concept of VGA card cooling ¦¡Inner Turbulence Fluid Mechanics Design. Utilizing a series of layered long and short fins with trapezoid punches, Silent-Pipe 3¢â transforms laminar (smooth) air flow into turbulent (rough) air flow inside the heat sink, increasing the heat exchange ratio and enhancing overall thermal performance. Also GIGABYTE now includes an additional game bundle, Supreme Commander, available today for RTS gamers.

GIGABYTE UNITED INC., a leading manufacturer of motherboards and graphics
cards, is again changing the face of silent graphics card solutions with the
release of the 1st all-silent GeForce 8600 GTS graphics card. As the 3rd
generation of the renowned GIGABYTE Silent-Pipe cooling technologies,
Silent-Pipe 3™ combines three GIGABYTE proprietary thermal designs: Silent-Pipe
II™ recommended by Tom’s Hardware and awarded by AnandTech, Silent-Pipe™ known
by gamers worldwide for its unmatched silent operation and Screen-Cooling™ for
entry-level cards. Designed by nature, but perfected by GIGABYTE, Silent-Pipe 3™
delivers exceptionally silent and cool graphics performance.

GIGABYTE is always glad to be able to offer hardcore gaming enthusiasts the very
latest game bundles including Sid Meier’s Civilization IV, Quake 4, Call of
Juarez and Warhammer 40,000: Dawn of War Dark Crusade. GIGABYTE now includes an
additional game bundle, Supreme Commander, available today for RTS gamers.
Awarded Best Strategy Game at E3 2006, Supreme Commander is the first real-time
strategy (RTS) computer game to deliver a truly strategic and tactical
experience. Developed by Chris Taylor, the genius behind the world’s first RTS
game in 1997 called Total Annihilation, Supreme Commander raises the bar for its
sheer scope and scale of game play. Breathtaking features such as ‘Strategic
zoom system’ allows players zoom out far enough to view the entire map at a
glance. Players can also zoom in close enough that larger units such as
battleships fill most of the screen. At COMPUTEX 2007, we are not only proud to
add Supreme Commander into our game bundle collection, but are also hosting the
1st ever GIGABYTE Cup Taiwan Supreme Commander Tournament at TWTC Hall 2.

GIGABYTE VGA cards are designed with the industry’s most leading-edge features
including ultra-low ESR Solid Capacitors to ensure ultra-stable performance and
longer component lifespan, as well as support for HDCP (High-bandwidth Digital
Content Protection), providing the highest quality High-Definition video for the
ultimate Blu-ray and HD DVD experience.
