GIGABYTE Supports New VRD 11.1 Power Specification for Intel's Latest Core 2 CPUs


GIGABYTE's Dynamic Energy Saver Advanced now offers support for the new VRD (Voltage Regulator Down) 11.1 processor power delivery specification from Intel. VRD 11.1 is a new energy saving power standard that communicates the CPU's power requirements to the motherboard, allowing DES Advanced motherboards to gear down to a single (1) power phase for unequalled power efficiency during deeper sleep state.



Gear down to 1 power phase
(During deep sleep mode)


GIGABYTE is the first hardware vendor to adopt the new Intel CPU power standard for the latest E-stepping E8000 and E7000 series of Intel® Core™ 2 processors, delivering dynamic 6 gear power phase switching technology for the GIGABYTE DES Advanced motherboards. GIGABYTE has also gone the extra mile and added support for VRD 11.1 on a full range of DES Advanced motherboards from the high-end EP45-DQ6 down to the entry level EP31-DS3L and EG31M-S2 products.

With GIGABYTE, tomorrow's technologies and features are available on a full range of products, today.

 


Easy to Secure Your Data
                                 With Infineon's TPM chip built-in, GIGABYTE rovides TPM hardware-
                               based encryption and decryption with digital signature keys to emsure                           a maximum level of data protection with 2048 bit encryption.                    GIGABTE Ultra TPM provides an added layer of security by allowing users to store their digital signature key on a USB thumb drive, so when they step away from their system, they can take the key with them, locking up their data and preventing unauthorized access while they are away. When making the portable user key, GIGABYTE Ultra TPM auto deletes the user key in the hard drive, ensuring the maximum level of data protection.


Nearly Impossible to Crack
Most data security solutions, whether they are software or hardware based, rely on a process of encryption and decryption to secure digital data. Encryption takes your data and transforms it, making it unreadable to anyone that doesn't have a "key" to read it. The key basically tells how that information was transformed, and acts as a password for the data. Once you have the key, you are able to undo the encryption, a process called decryption, making the data readable again.


Key size basically determines the level of security; 1 bit keys being the least secure, all
the way up to the 2048 bit key found in GIGABYTE's Ultra TPM. How secure is 2048 bit
security? The number of possible combinations from a 2048 bit number is 22048, which
is 3.23 x 10616. That is 3 followed by 616 zeros or

0000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000

That is how many possible different number combinations a 2048 bit key has. A computer capable of one million instructions per second would have to work for 1014 years to crack the key. Is it any wonder why this is considered military
