other version:  rev. 1.0 rev. 1.1 rev. 2.1
Intel®  P35 Chipset
The GA-P35-DS4 is GIGABYTE high performance platform based on the killer combination of the new Intel P35 chipset plus support for the latest multi-core processors up to FSB 1333MHz, including the upcoming 45nm platform. In addition to setting new records for blistering performance, the GA-P35-DS4 features an all-new copper Silent Pipe thermal solution for both the chipset and CPU power MOSFET, dramatically reducing the temperature around the CPU. The GA-P35-DS4 is also part of the GIGABYTE Ultra Durable 2 Series of motherboards, featuring top quality electronic components which provide optimized power savings, ultra cooling and extended system durability.
