CONNECTIVITY Exclusive Realtek 8118 Gaming LAN High Speed Gigabit LAN with Automatic Bandwidth Allocation Realtek 8118 LAN is a high performance and friendly network chip for gaming players with automatic bandwidth allocation to ensure the highest network priority of the game or application. It can provide users the most comprehensive features and the fastest and smoothest Internet experience. NVMe PCIe Gen3 x2 2280 M.2 Connector GIGABYTE Motherboards are focused on delivering M.2 technology to enthusiasts who want to maximize their systems potential. COOLING Smart Fan 5 With Smart Fan 5 users can ensure that their gaming PC can maintain its performance while staying cool. Smart Fan 5 allows users to interchange their fan headers to reflect different thermal sensors at different locations on the motherboard. Not only that with Smart Fan 5 more hybrid fan headers that support both PWM and Voltage mode fans have been introduced to make the motherboard more liquid cooling friendly. Achieve fan silence. With Fan Stop map any fan to stop completely when temperatures drop below a specified threshold. Which fan stops based on readings from which sensor and at what temperatureall of it can be customized to your liking. Hybrid Fan Pin Headers Assume complete control over your liquid cooling setup! Smart Fan 5 receives up-to-the-second information on flow-rate and water-temperature through the Hybrid Fan Pin Headers or external thermistor sensorsgiving you absolute mastery over your PC.
- All Hybrid Fan Headers can automatically detect the type of cooling device whether it be fan or pump with different PWM or Voltage mode. New Smart Fan 5 Software Choose from different modes Quiet to Full Speed to match your system usage preferences. For each fan or pump you can use the intuitive fan curve to define trigger thresholds and corresponding fan speeds. AUDIO High-End Audio Capacitors GIGABYTE motherboards use high-end audio capacitors. These high quality capacitors help deliver high resolution and high fidelity audio to provide the most realistic sound effects for gamers. Audio Noise Guard GIGABYTE motherboards feature an audio noise guard that essentially separates the boards sensitive analog audio components from potential noise pollution at the PCB level. ULTRA DURABLE START SULFURIZATION PROTECTION Sulfur compounds in the air can penetrate tiny onboard resistors creating chemical change and causing these resistors to open or short. If either of these occurs the motherboard will fail to function. By equipping resistors with an Anti-Sulfur Design GIGABYTE gives Ultra Durable Motherboards a whole new meaning. The Industry’s Leading Surge Protection GIGABYTE motherboards also feature special anti-surge IC that protect your motherboard helping to ensure that your PC is equipped to deal with any potentially irregular electrical spikes. Humidity Protection Glass Fabric PCB There is nothing more harmful to the longevity of your PC than moisture and most parts of the world experience moisture in the air as humidity at some point during the year. GIGABYTE motherboards have been designed to make sure that humidity is never an issue incorporating a new Glass Fabric PCB technology that repels moisture caused by humid and damp conditions. Glass Fabric PCB technology uses a new PCB material which reduces the amount of space between the fiber weave making it much more difficult for moisture to penetrate compared to traditional motherboard PCBs. This offers much better protection from short circuit and system malfunction caused by humid and damp conditions. High Temperature Protection Lower RDS(on) MOSFETs Design GIGABYTE motherboards use Low RDS(on) MOSFETs which reduce energy wastage through unnecessary residual heat dissipation. This all amounts to tangible energy savings which are beneficial for both end-users and the environment without impacting system performance. GIGABYTE EXCELLENCE Refreshed BIOS The BIOS is essential for users during initial setup to allow for the most optimal settings. With a new GUI and easier to use functionalities GIGABYTE has been able to reinvent the BIOS to give users a better experience while setting up their new system. APP CENTER GIGABYTE APP CENTER is an useful portal of all GIGABYTE MB utilities and drivers you can choose any utility you want to install from APP CENTER and keep you updated with latest utilities and drivers version. EasyTune GIGABYTE’s EasyTune is a simple and easy-to-use interface that allows users to fine-tune their system settings or adjust system and memory clocks and voltages in a Windows environment. With Smart Quick Boost one click is all it takes to automatically overclock your system giving an added performance boost when you need it the most. @BIOS The GIGABYTE @BIOS app allows you to update your systems BIOS from within Windows using a simple and slick graphical user interface. @BIOS can automatically download the latest version from the GIGABYTE servers or you can update your BIOS from a file on your computer. @BIOS also allows you to save your current BIOS to a file recover your previous BIOS from an image and backup your BIOS to an image. System Information Viewer GIGABYTE System Information Viewer is a central location that gives you access to your current system status. Monitor components such as the clocks and processor set your preferred fan speed profile create alerts when temperatures get too high or record your system’s behavior; these are the possibilities of the System Information Viewer. 4K Ultra HD Support 4K resolution is the next technological milestone in high-definition content delivery utilizing approximately 4000 pixels on the horizontal axis more than four times today’s standard HD pixel density. GIGABYTE motherboards provide native 4K support with integrated Intel HD Graphics via HDMI. HDMI - The Next Generation Multimedia Interface HDMI is a High-Definition Multimedia Interface which provides up to 5Gb/s video transmitting bandwidth and 8-channel high quality audio all through a single cable. Able to transmit superior uncompressed digital video and audio HDMI ensures the crispest rendering of digital content up to 1080p without the quality losses associated with analog interfaces and their digital-to-analog conversion. In addition HDMI is compatible with HDCP (High-bandwidth Digital Content Protection) allowing the playback of Blu-ray/HD DVD and other protected media content.
