Review Gigabyte B75M-D3H: Chipset Alternatif Terjangkau dengan Dukungan Ivy Bridge

Motherboard dengan chipset Intel 7-series seperti Intel Z77 sedang ramai-ramainya dibicarakan di kalangan calon pengguna soket LGA1155, terutama karena fiturnya yang melimpah dan opsi tweaking yang luas. Sayangnya, calon pemakai platform LGA1155 dengan budget mepet harus menerima kenyataan bahwa kebanyakan motherboard berchipset Z77 biasanya ditujukan untuk kelas menengah ke atas. Saat artikel ini dirilis, harga motherboard-motherboard tersebut masih berkisar di USD200-an ke atas. Oleh karena itu, pilihan pengguna LGA1155 yang mencari motherboard kelas low-end biasanya terbatas pada motherboard dengan chipset Intel H61. Namun, adakah alternatif lain? Ada!

Pada peluncuran chipset Intel 7-series yang lalu, ada satu buah chipset yang nampaknya ‘terlupakan’ akibat popularitas dari chipset Z77, yakni chipset Intel B75. Mari kita lihat spesifikasinya!

Chipset B75

Spesifikasi chipset B75  nampaknya pas untuk mengisi kekosongan antara chipset low-end dan mainstream. Chipset ini memiliki dukungan USB 3.0 dan SATA 6gb/s terintegrasi, dan pastinya mendukung prosesor Ivy Bridge. Perbedaan utama dengan kelas atasnya, Z77/H77, adalah chipset B75 ini tidak mendukung pengubahan CPU Multiplier sekalipun Anda menggunakan CPU seri K, tidak mendukung fitur SSD Caching (Intel RST Smart Response), dan kontroller SATA internal-nya tidak mendukung RAID tapi mendukung mode AHCI dari Intel Rapid Storage Technology. Namun ada satu hal yang  motherboard dengan chipset ini patut dilirik, harganya disinyalir bisa berada di bawah USD120! Sebuah alternatif yang menarik, bukan?

Gigabyte, salah satu vendor motherboard yang namanya sudah tentu tidak asing bagi Anda, kali ini mengirimkan sebuah motherboard berchipset Intel B75 yang diberi nama Gigabyte B75M-D3H. Apa saja yang ditawarkan Gigabyte pada motherboard ini?
