GIGABYTE has completed two phases of a pan-India initiative to train its Value Partners, on the new Intel X79 chipset-based GIGABYTE motherboards that support the second-Generation Intel Core i7 processor family for high-end desktops.
The training programme was jointly conducted by GIGABYTE and Intel personnel for the benefit of GIGABYTE Value Partners, comprising mostly System Integrators (SIs), at more than 30 venues across metro, Tier-2 and also Tier-3 locations. The programme focussed training on the GIGABYTE X79 series motherboards that feature new GIGABYTE 3D Power application, based on a 3-way Digital Power Engine for both the PWM and memory, and the new GIGABYTE UEFI Dual BIOS technology.
While Intel conducted training sessions on the second-generation, Intel Core i7 processors bring a number of new enthusiast-class features to Intel’s latest extreme platform. Featuring the new LGA 2011 socket and based on the latest updated micro-architecture, these new processors feature up to six cores with up to 15MB L3 cache and four-channel DDR3 memory.
Sunil Grewal, Sales Head – India, GIGABYTE Technology (India), said, “Simplified training programmes are the most vital attribute of our channel partner engagement initiatives, essentially because such programmes help in enhancing their product knowledge as well as confidence to better manage and support their customers. Our just-concluded countrywide programme was attended by over 2,000 resellers who, we believe, have now gained adequate knowledge to leverage the huge market demand for the Intel X79 chipset-based motherboards.”
