GIGABYTE FM2 motherboards are the latest range of next-generation desktop motherboards based on the AMD A85X chipset, supporting a socket FM2 of 32nm AMD A-series APUs with DirectX11 graphics integrated. Not only delivering AMD's industry-leading performance and advanced graphics capabilities, GIGABYTE motherboards are equipped with a comprehensive range of unique features that offer mainstream PC users the most compelling platform on the market today.

GIGABYTE Ultra Durable 5
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 cooler temperatures than traditional motherboards. Featured on a range of motherboards based the AMD A85X Chipset, GIGABYTE Ultra Durable 5 technology is the next evolution in quality motherboard design.

GIGABYTE digital power engine
GIGABYTE Ultra Durable 5 motherboards take advantage of an exclusive Digital PWM controller array, to deliver power to AMD FM2 A-series processor. Using digital controllers means that more precise power delivery to the motherboard's most power hungry and energy sensitive components is possible. These components include the CPU and processor graphics, without doubt the most important components on the motherboard. This Digital Power system, with Precise Auto Voltage Compensation to make real-time adjustments and deliver a steady flow of power to the system, no matter the loading. This digital power system provides enthusiast users with exceptional control over the over -clocking potential of their GIGABYTE motherboard.

GIGABYTE 3D BIOS
The revolutionary GIGABYTE 3D BIOS application is based on GIGABYTE UEFI DualBIOS technology and is available to consumers in two exclusive modes of interaction, providing enthusiast and mainstream users with a choice of unique and powerful graphical interfaces.

UEFI DualBIOS technology
At the heart of this exciting 3D BIOS technology is a pair of physical BIOS ROMs containing GIGABYTE's exclusive in-house designed UEFI 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 exciting experience for novice and experienced users alike. UEFI BIOS also brings native support for large hard drives on 64-bit operating systems.

3D mode
Designed 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 BIOS functionality.

Advanced mode
Advanced 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, and optimized graphical UEFI interface.

AMD Eyefinity technology
Supporting multiple independent display outputs simultaneously, AMD Eyefinity technology delivers innovative graphics display capabilities enabling massive desktop workspaces and ultra-immersive visual environments for the ultimate panoramic computing experience.

AMD Dual Graphics: unrivaled upgradability
The AMD A85X series platform showcases AMD Dual Graphics technology, allowing users to further boost 3D graphics performance by adding an additional discrete AMD Radeon HD 6000 series graphics card to the system. This unique Dual Graphics technology means users can enjoy higher frame rates on the latest gaming titles, utilizing the processing power of both discrete and integrated graphics processors.

Multi-display support with AMD CrossFire
Flexible graphics capabilities - up to 3 VGA cards are supported for 3 way AMD CrossFire (running at x8, x8, x4 bandwidth), delivering the ultimate in graphics performance for gaming enthusiasts who demand the highest frame rates without compromising on resolution.

Lucid universal MVP support
GIGABYTE motherboards support Lucid Virtu GPU virtualization technologies - optimized virtualization software that improves your PC's visuals, with faster response times, improved video processing and smoother media playback, all within a low power environment.

GIGABYTE 333 onboard acceleration
GIGABYTE 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 USB ports for more power hungry USB devices.

Triple-Monitor support
This motherboard provides Dual-link DVI, display port, HDMI and D-sub ports, allowing you to choose any three among four outputs to display at the same time!

Dual-link DVI port
Designed to leverage the awesome potential of the latest AMD A-series APUs, GIGABYTE motherboards deliver an enhanced visual experience that includes advanced DX11 gaming, incredibly smooth HD multimedia playback and support for high resolution displays of up to 2560 x 1600 pixels by Dual-link DVI port.

Display port support
Selected GIGABYTE motherboards feature DisplayPort, a next generation graphics display interface that delivers up to 10.8 Gbps of bandwidth over standard cables, providing billions of colors with the fastest refresh rates and the greatest color depths.

HDMI interface
HDMI is High-Definition Multimedia Interface, which is able to provide up to 5Gb/s video transmitting bandwidth and also 8-channel high quality audio. Via transmitting uncompressed digital data, HDMI is able to reduce signal interference as transferring between digital and analog signal, seen and heard, direct from the source. In addition, HDMI is compatible with HDCP (High-bandwidth Digital Content Protection), which allowing playback of Blu-ray/HD DVD and other protected contents.

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...

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 produces motherboards that help you effectively improve system efficiency.
