Gigabyte’s New Motherboard Features 240GB Integrated SSD

Just a week ago, we blogged about the Gigabyte motherboard with the integrated 20GB SSD. Glenn Barber spoke about how he thought it was cool to have 20GB of space on the motherboard so that users could easily reformat without re-installing the operating system each time.

I have to admit that even I thought that was a cool new feature at the time, until the Computex 2011 show when I heard that Gigabyte will also be releasing motherboards with 60GB, 120GB, and 240GB of *integrated on-board SSD, providing a max read/write of 140MB/s and 90MB/s, respectively.

Gigabyte’s New Motherboard W/ Integrated 20GB SSD

Gigabyte has just unleashed a new motherboard that has an integrated 20GB solid-state drive on the board. The Gigabyte Z68XP-UD3-iSSD is a motherboard that is based on Intel’s Z68 Express chipset and comes bundled with Intel’s 20GB Solid State Drive 311 series. The purpose of the integrated 20GB SSD is not meant as a replacement drive but rather a supplement to existing drives.

What’s so great about having a built-in SSD is that users will be able to directly install their operating system of choice onto the motherboard itself and keep all files and data on their secondary drive.
