[Gigabyte] -- GIGABYTE First with AMD USB 3.0 Motherboard Certification -- -- USB-IF Certifies GA-870A-UD3 Motherboard E

Taipei, Taiwan, May 6, 2010 - GIGABYTE TECHNOLOGY Co., Ltd, a leading manufacturer of motherboards, graphics cards and computing hardware solutions is proud to announce that the GA-870A-UD3 is the world's first motherboard for the AMD platform to receive SuperSpeed USB certification from the USB Implementers Forum (USB-IF).

"We're delighted to see the GIGABYTE 870A-UD3 become the first SuperSpeed USB certified AMD motherboard because we were also first to launch an AMD USB 3.0 board in November 2009," commented Tim Handley, Deputy Director of Motherboard Marketing at GIGABYTE Technology Co. Ltd. "We have made it our goal to be the No. 1 USB 3.0 motherboard brand through quick time to market and superior innovation around USB technologies, and this is how we were able to reach shipments of 1 million USB 3.0 motherboards by the end of Q1, 2010. Look forward to many more USB 3.0 'firsts' from GIGABYTE in the months ahead."
