GIGABYTE Presents Its New C230 Series Server & Workstation Motherboards

GIGABYTE Technology, a leading creator of high performance server hardware, is happy to introduce today its new lineup of motherboards based on the new Intelآ® C230 series chipset family. Supporting the brand new Intelآ® Xeonآ® processor E3-1200 V5 product family (former codename Greenlow), this new lineup includes at launch two workstation motherboards and two server motherboards.

Formerly known as Greenlow, this new generation of single socket server and workstation processors is based on the 14nm process technology and designed with the new Skylake microarchitecture. Among the main features of this new product family is the adoption of the DDR4 memory technology within the Xeon E3 line of processors, which brings a significant memory speed and capacity boost over the previous generation (up to 64GB at 2133MHz compared to up to 32GB at 1866MHz with the previous generation). The other main new feature is the increase of the number and speed of PCIe lanes available from up to 8 Gen2 lanes to up to 20 Gen3 lanes, which opens the door for wider board configuration possibilities.
