Hi All  :)

There are many things to win in our March Quiz. First of all we have these two great AMD Socket AM3 motherboards:

GA-790FXTA-UD5


GA-770TA-UD3


Then we have :o .... yes, it's true - for the first time in the history of our forum we have ...
NVIDIA GeForce GTS 250 factory overclocked GV-N250OC-1GI-P1 graphic card ::)

which is bundled with Extreme Accuracy Gaming Mouse Pad GP-MP8000.  


And we also have 2 mice:

Laser Gaming Mouse GM-M6880

Dual Lens Gaming Mouse GM-M6800


And there are 10 pcs of GIGABYTE booby prizes :D for everyone taking part in the competition. You don't need to provide proper replies to have a chance of getting one of them - just participate in the Quiz and try your luck!. These prizes are secret :-X, I can't show or describe them except for the fact that they are totally new - never been offered before in any of our competitions.

OK, let's now have a look at the questions:

1. When you look at the model names of the latest series MB's (e.g. GA-790FXTA-UD5, GA-770TA-UD3) you'll notice "A" letter there. What is the meaning of it?
 
A) USB 3.0 Onboard Acceleration (SuperSpeed USB 3.0)
B) ACC (Advanced Clock Calibration which allows AMD Black Edition CPUs to be overclocked further than it was previously possible)
C) 333 Onboard Acceleration (SuperSpeed USB 3.0, SATA Revision 3.0 (6Gbps) and 3x USB power boost)
 
2. What is approximate bandwidth increase for USB 3.0 interface in comparison with USB 2.0?
 
A) 5 times
B) 10 times
C) 50 times
 
3. Below you can see photo of 2 VGAs taken by thermal camera. Which one of them is built without GIGABYTE UDV (Ultra Durable VGA) technology?
Answer: L (left) or R (right).

The booby prizes sound interesting!

Remember, when all else fails a cup of tea and a good swear will often help! It won't solve the problem but it will make you feel better.
