ASUS Gigabyte does not meet the power specifications of Intel

A few months ago, Gigabyte’s own response to the concerns exhibited by many users on the apparent lack of capacitors in the back of the socket of your motherboard , saying that thanks to the advanced Design of their motherboards, they did not require additional those who come standard.

also mentioned that possibly some of its competitors use this apparent lack of capacitors as a weapon to discredit them, and they were not wrong, which is Gigabyte complies omens, revealing the design specifications for its microprocessors energy -DT Ivy Bridge .

According to appreciate in the official specifications of (published in a presentation from Asus), the recommended 43 capacitors (31 22μF capacitor and 4.7μF capacitors 12), which differs from previous statements where they mentioned Gigabyte comply 100% with the Intel specifications: for their motherboards have only 29 capacitors (28 in the front and 1 in the back of the socket area).

In contrast Asus touts that its motherboards Intel exceed specifications including a total of 45 capacitors for the CPU, thanks to which offer better overclocking ability, managing to carry a microprocessor Core i7-3770K at a frequency of 4.95GHz and withstand stress test for at least 10 minutes with complete stability.

Interestingly, using the same chip on motherboards of Gigabyte, this is not able to achieve the 4.95GHz, while motherboards from MSI and ASRock if they are able to reach this frequency (although the ASRock does not pass the stress test) .

Since the test was apparently made and/or sponsored by Asus, we can not draw conclusions yet. We hope that Gigabyte seems to respond to these convincing data that exposes Asus.
