    Published on December 22, 2010

    Mumbai : As Intel readies to launch on January 5, 2011, its new 2nd Generation core processors (codenamed Sandy Bridge) that will feature the next generation Intel 6 Series chipsets, GIGABYTE Technology India Pvt. Ltd, a leading manufacturer of motherboards, has started a major countrywide drive to train its channel and system integrator (SI) partners, on the upcoming GIGABYTE motherboards that will support Sandy Bridge.

    GIGABYTE is conducting training sessions for its partners on its Intel 6 Series chipset-based motherboards, such as GA-H67MA-UD2H and GA-P6A-UD7, at over 40 venues across metro, Tier 2 as well as Tier 3 locations. These sessions, which are a vital constituent of GIGABYTE’s ongoing meets, are being held in a number of states, including Maharashtra, Goa, Gujarat, Andhra Pradesh, Karnataka, Tamil Nadu, Kerala, Assam, West Bengal, Orissa, Madhya Pradesh, Haryana, Punjab, and Jammu & Kashmir.

    Commenting on the training sessions, Rajan Sharma, General Manager, Marketing and Sales, GIGABYTE India, “We believe timely information is key to the success for our business, where technology upgrades are faster. Hence, we have rolled out a unique program to educate our partners, so they are best equipped to effectively guide, manage and support their customers, with regard to GIGABYTE’s Intel 6 Series chipset-based motherboards.

    “As the Intel 6 Series chipset will have almost two years’ lifespan, it becomes all the more important for both our SI and channel partners, to gain sufficient knowledge to leverage the expected market demand,” added Sharma.

    The training programs have been welcomed by GIGABYTE partners, who have flocked in large numbers to be a part of the event. Yogesh Palan of Goa-based Avon Computer, a GIGABYTE Premium Partner, said, “We believe that motherboards that support Sandy Bridge processors, give us a big business opportunity. GIGABYTE’s training program is broadly designed to develop our knowledge and skill-sets necessary to capitalize on this opportunity.”

    Added Jayesh Jain of Sybex Marketing, a Mumbai-based GIGABYTE Premium Partner, “It was a highly educative session overall. I found it quite helpful to learn about this newest chipset technology and compatible motherboards, and how they are going to impact the PC market.”
