Gigabyte recently released new barebones systems for the new Intel Xeon E5-2400 and Intel Xeon E5-2600 series CPUs. Barebones systems are popular with resellers and end users because the chassis, motherboard, and power supplies are generally optimized for the package. Further, cabling generally comes pre-installed so usually taking a barebones system to a production ready system can be as simple as adding CPUs, RAM and drives. Gigabyte is a very familiar name in the consumer space, but they have been making a push into the consumer and high-end workstation markets. Below is an overview of the new systems that Gigabyte recently launched for Intel Xeon E5-2400 and Intel Xeon E5-2600 series CPUs.
