GIGABYTE GA-H57M-USB3 DRIVER DOWNLOAD

First we had the P55 chipset, and that was fine — just a Nehalem-based revision of the P35 and P45 motherboards. If you’re thinking of gaming in any sense of the word then you need a dedicated GPU — and you might as well go for a cheapo P55 board and a good quad. The H merely denotes that these chipsets are completely compatible with Intel’s latest Clarkdale chips that have the integrated graphics processors on-die. The H57 uses less power and creates less heat, and this is what makes it the better overclocker’s board. You don’t really need to be overclocking the twangers off your dual-core, integrated graphics CPU if all you’re doing is watching the odd HD movie.

I understand that the boosted CPU will give better video encoding performance, so if you’re into video editing then it’ll be of gah-57m-usb3 to you. A quick look at the power usage and temperature readings, however, and the difference becomes clearer. If you’re after a cooler, less power-hungry media-centre system, though, the H57 does offer ba-h57m-usb3 better alternative to the H In terms of stock performance alone, there’s absolutely no difference between the H55 and H57 boards.

The H57 uses less power and creates less heat, and this is what makes it the ggabyte overclocker’s board. The H55 is the low-end version, with the H57 offering a higher spec — and this is what we have here: Against Little different to H55 Not a value part. But still we struggle to see the point.

First we had the P55 chipset, and that ba-h57m-usb3 fine — just a Nehalem-based revision of the P35 and P45 motherboards. But just as we had the G4x chipsets, we’ve now got the H5x series.

The higher-end boards such as this come with a couple of the new USB 3. The H merely denotes that these chipsets are ga-h57mm-usb3 compatible with Intel’s latest Clarkdale chips that have the integrated graphics processors on-die. Our Verdict A decent board, but offers limited extras over the equivalent, cheaper H55s.

With so little real-world difference between the two H5x chipsets, it does make sense to go for the lower-end part.

That said, if you’re that into your videos then the fantastic Core i5 quad is going to be your better gigabyts, especially paired with something like Asus’ cheaper P7PM Micro ATX P55 board. If you’re thinking of gaming in any sense of the word then you need a dedicated GPU — and you might gihabyte well go for a cheapo P55 board and a good quad. The differences between the H55 and H57 motherboards seem negligible when you’re talking about cheapo integrated graphics boards.

And if you absolutely, positively have to have USB 3.

Not content with confusing the hell out of everyone with the new naming conventions for its Core i processors, Intel has thrown another 5-series chipset into the equation to make its motherboards just as obfuscated. Sure, you’ll have to pick up a dedicated GPU to go ga-h57m-usb with it, but if you were satisfied gah57m-usb3 with integrated graphics then you don’t need to break the bank looking for one.

Why do you really want to overclock a dual-core CPU to such an extent, when you’re relying on integrated graphics for the visual goodies? Follow TechRadar Reviews on Twitter:
