Gigabyte Offers Peak Into “Black Edition” Motherboard Facility
Gigabyte’s Colin Brix hosts the video and notes that the company puts the Black Edition boards through a 168-hour (that’s one week) server test to ensure total stability. He says that the new facility is capable of testing thousands of motherboards at a time. (Fun fact: The systems are running Litecoin during that whole time.)
The Black Edition boards that pass the test are issued a certificate of validation--a token measure, it seems, but if you’ve ever spent a frustrating few days trying to troubleshoot a new system build only to discover that the board was shot from the get-go, you can appreciate the extra measure to ensure quality.
