With the announcement by Intel of its new 2nd Generation core processors (codenamed Sandy Bridge) on January 5, 2011, GIGABYTE Technology has started a countrywide drive to train its channel and system integrator (SI) partners, on the upcoming GIGABYTE motherboards that will support Sandy Bridge.
Sandy Bridge will feature the next generation Intel 6 Series chipsets.
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 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.
