Also for the mainstream market but supporting DDR3 memories, Gigabyte will launch GA-P35C-DS3R. This model is identical to GA-P35-DS3R, except for the addition of two DDR3 sockets, making the board to accept up to 4 GB of DDR3 memory. Note that on this motherboard you can use only one type of memory, i.e., you cannot use DDR2 and DDR3 at the same time.
Gigabyte will also release a high-end model based on GA-P35C-DS3R with all-copper passive cooling, featuring two x16 PCI Express slots and “Quad BIOS” feature, which is the traditional Dual BIOS feature by Gigabyte with the capability of performing a BIOS backup on the hard drive. This model will be called GA-P35-DQ6. The rest of the specs is the same as GA-P35C-DS3R.
