BIOS technology. With a superior graphical interface capable of
32-bit color imaging and fluid user-friendly mouse navigation, UEFI
DualBIOS™ makes BIOS configuration a new and exciting experience for
novice and experienced users alike. UEFI BIOS also brings native
support for large hard drives on 64-bit operating systems.
to provide an extremely streamlined and user-friendly BIOS
environment, GIGABYTE's exclusive 3D mode offers a fully interactive
and illustrative GUI that allows users to easily and intuitively
make key adjustments to the UEFI BIOS settings for optimum
performance. 3D Mode allows novice or casual users to more clearly
understand the areas of the motherboard that are being affected
through the BIOS settings, gaining a clearer understanding of the
mode provides a more comprehensive UEFI BIOS environment that is
designed specifically for overclockers and power users who want
maximum control over their PC's hardware. It also combines the
signature GIGABYTE BIOS expertise you've come to expect, wrapped a
slick, new and optimized graphical UEFI interface.

On/Off Charge Technology
GIGABYTE On/Off Charge
technology allows you to charge your iPhone, iPad and iPod Touch
regardless of whether your PC is on, in standby mode or even off. A
derivative of GIGABYTE's highly acclaimed 3x USB Power feature,
On/Off Charge enables devices to draw more current from GIGABYTE
motherboard USB ports than standard USB ports allow, so that
charging from your PC can be as fast as with a charger...more
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.
*Whether to support 3X USB power design, it may vary by models.
ErP Lot 6 support
The ErP (also known as Energy-Related
Products Directive) is part of the European Union's environmental
regulations policy. It is based on concern for the environmental as the
proliferation of electronic devices continues, and how to improve energy
efficiency for a better and greener life. GIGABYTE supports ErP and
