Gigabyte offers iPad charging with new driver

Gigabyte wants to be on Apple’s good side by offering a new software driver for some of their mainboards in order to support the Apple iPad’s higher charging needs. Currently, standard USB 2.0 ports on computers are able to charge the new Apple tablet only when it is off, but the new On/Off Charge driver update will enable some of Gigabyte’s most common AMD and Intel mainboards to juice up the iPad regardless of whether it is turned on or not. This new driver will support the Intel X58, P55, H55, and H57 chipsets, alongside AMD 800 mainboards.
