GIGABYTE X79 series motherboards are
designed to unite unrivalled desktop PC performance with a new level
of flexibility and hardware control. Based on the latest Intel® X79
Express Chipset, supporting the new LGA 2011 Intel® Core™
i7 processors, GIGABYTE X79 series motherboards bring DIY builders
to a new area of performance-oriented computing.
GIGABYTE 3D Power (patent pending)
GIGABYTE X79 series motherboards are the first to take advantage of
the exclusive GIGABYTE 3D Power, an all new hardware and
software-based Digital Power Engine for both the PWM and Memory that
delivers unprecedented power delivery control.
All New Digital Power Control for the
CPU and Memory
a brand new Digital PWM controller, GIGABYTE's 3D Power features
precise Auto Voltage Compensation to deliver a steady flow of power
to the CPU and memory no matter the loading. This all new, all
digital power system provides enthusiast users with exceptional
control over the overclocking potential of their GIGABYTE X79
GIGABYTE is the first in the industry to utilize digital memory
controllers for not only the Memory, but VTT and VSA, for real-time
monitoring and adjusting. Digital memory control allows users to
monitor and record DDR power and current in real-time while gaming,
overclocking or at idle. Users can also set OVP (Over Voltage
Protection) to safeguard your memory, adjust memory Load-line
Calibration to fix memory vdrooping for a quicker response time and
adjust memory PWM frequency on-the-fly.
GIGABYTE Ultra Durable™ 5
High Current, Low Heat
CPU Power Zone Design Features IR Digital Power Controller and
IR3550 PowIRstage® Ics
The GIGABYTE motherboard employ award winning GIGABYTE Ultra
Durable™ 5 technology that includes high current capable components
for the CPU power zone including IR3550 PowIRstage® ICs
from International Rectifier, 2X Copper PCB and high current Ferrite
Core Chokes rated up to 60A, which together are able to deliver up
to 60¡ãC* cooler temperatures than traditional motherboards. Featured
on a range of new motherboards based the Intel®X79 and
Z77 Express Chipsets, GIGABYTE Ultra Durable™ 5 technology is the
next evolution in quality motherboard design...more
4 Channel Memory Architecture
latest Intel® 2nd
Gen Core™ i7 processors feature a new integrated memory controller
that supports four channel DDR3 memory for the first time. Offering
unrivalled memory performance with incredible potential data
bandwidth, GIGABYTE X79 series motherboards give you the ultimate
performance for today's memory-intensive applications.
Designed for PCI Express Gen.3 Support
The GIGABYTE motherboard is fully configured to provide gamers with
the latest Gen.3 PCI Express technology, delivering maximum data
bandwidth for forthcoming discrete graphics cards.
* PCIe Gen. 3 is dependent on CPU and expansion card compatibility.
4-way CrossFireX™ and 4-way SLI™ Support
GIGABYTE X79-UP4 delivers the industry's most scalable graphics
platform, with support for both 4-way AMD CrossfireX™ and Nvidia
SLI™. Providing 4 PCI Express 3.0 x16 connectivity, X79-UP4 delivers
ultra smooth 3D rendering, blazing-fast frame rates and enhanced
graphics capabilities for users wanting to get the highest level of
graphics performance from their system.
GIGABYTE 333 Onboard Acceleration
GIGABYTE X79 series motherboards feature GIGABYTE 333 Onboard
Acceleration , a range of the latest technologies that are designed
help speed up data transfer, including SuperSpeed USB 3.0
technology, SATA Revision 3.0 (6Gbps) technology and an
unprecedented 3x USB power boost on all USB ports for more power
hungry USB devices.
GIGABYTE On/Off Charge
GIGABYTE X79 series motherboards
feature ON/OFF Charge, a unique GIGAYTE technology which allows you
not only to charge your iPhone, iPad or iPod Touch, but also allows
you to Quick Charge it. As an added bonus, it can even be charged
when your PC is turned off, so even if you forget to plug it into
your charger after you've synced up your music, it will be fully
charged when you need it.
to certain mobile phone limitations, users may need to connect the
mobile phone to their PC before the PC enters S4/S5 mode to enable a
quick charge from non ON/OFF Charge USB ports.
Charging results may vary by model.
