GIGABYTE Partners with Futuremark® to Launch GIGABYTE System Builder

"Online Tool Gives Users Performance and Pricing Info Based on Hardware Configuration, Taking the Guesswork Out of Their Next System Build"

Search News

Gigabyte has announced the release of their new online tool, the System Builder.  The System Builder allows users to select a configuration (motherboard, CPU, and graphics card) using various Gigabyte products.  Utilizing Futuremark's 3DMark scale as a benchmark and the items' MSRPs, it then shows performance and price numbers of the configuration.

"As the market leader in motherboard and VGA design, GIGABYTE has a large range of products catering to many different types of users, from top PC gamers wanting to build the ultimate performance rig, to the general PC enthusiast wanting to get the best value for their money," commented Tim Handley, Deputy Director of Motherboard Marketing at GIGABYTE Technology Co. Ltd. "That is why we are excited to be partnering with Futuremark on the development of the GIGABYTE System Builder utility, making it easier than ever for users to know exactly what sort of performance they can expect from their yet to be built system."

"We recognize the challenge most PC buyers have when deciding how much to spend and what type of performance they should expect. The GIGABYTE System Builder takes the guess work out of PC buying, allowing anyone at any budget to confidently make PC purchasing decisions based on the latest and most advanced hardware from Intel and GIGABYTE," said Jukka Mäkinen VP of Futuremark.

While not really a tool experienced enthusiasts are likely to use, the Gigabyte System Builder is a fairly sound idea that does give users some insight into the performance they can expect with various base setups.  It would be interesting if Gigabyte were to add overclocking performance results to the mix as well.

Dose any one use the tools in the god mode folder??
I have had this sitting on my desktop since I pretty much had windows 7 but never go into it, Probably mainly because I am so used to knowing where the tools I would normally use in god mode are actually located or just because I always use RUN to start windows apps. :unsure:
