Gigabyte Super4 motherboard is the desktop motherboard based on the Intel H61 express chipset. Not only delivering Intel's industry-leading performance and advanced integrated graphics capabilities, Gigabyte Super4 motherboard is equipped with a comprehensive range of unique features that offer mainstream PC users the most compelling platform on the market today.
Gigabyte Super4 motherboard boasts specific features that guard against system malfunction and ensure extended system longevity, including Gigabyte DualBIOS to ensure that you never experience system failure due to BIOS corruption. Additionally, each USB port has its own dedicated power fuse that prevents unwanted USB port failure, helping to safe guard your important data during transfer.
DualBIOS 3 TB+ HDD support
Gigabyte DualBIOS automatically recovers BIOS data when the main BIOS has crashed or failed. Featuring 2 physical BIOS ROMs integrated onboard, Gigabyte DualBIOS allows quick and seamless recovery from BIOS damage or failure due to viruses or improper BIOS updating. In addition, Gigabyte DualBIOS supports 3 TB+ hard drive booting without the need for partitioning, and enables more data storage on a single hard drive.
Gigabyte Ultra Durable motherboard is equipped with solid capacitors. The solid capacitor provides the stability, reliability and longevity essential to meet the power needs of high-end processors and other components running most demanding applications and games.
Gigabyte super speed ensures that you're always on the cusp of PC performance, data transfer and device charging speeds. An integrated overclocking chip coupled with Gigabyte's unique Ultra Durable 2 power technology, makes sure that your Intel Core processor is running at optimal performance levels. Additionally, Gigabyte 3x USB power means better device compatibility and faster charging on USB connected devices like portable storage devices without needing to use two USB ports.
3x USB power boost
Gigabyte motherboard features a 3x USB power boost, delivering greater compatibility and extra power for USB devices. Gigabyte's unique USB power design is also able to efficiently regulate output over the full voltage range, which greatly enhances USB device compatibility. In addition, dedicated lower resistance fuses ensure lower voltage drops, and provide more stable and plentiful power delivery.
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.
Gigabyte Super4 motherboard is equipped with the very best quality components that ensure that you PC is running at maximum power efficiency. Lower RDS MOSFETs reduce energy wastage through unnecessary residual heat dissipation, while ferrite chokes reduce overall core energy loss with better energy storage and regulation. This all amounts to tangible energy savings which are beneficial for both end-users and the environment without impacting system performance.
As the HD multimedia revolution continues to gain momentum, so too must hardware standards in audio quality. Gigabyte Super4 motherboard offers excellent 7.1 surround sound audio backed by a proprietary converter that which is able to achieve a 108 dB noise ratio (SNR) playback quality. This means that users will enjoy a better audio experience with lower levels of noise and hiss when enjoying the HD content.
108 dB Signal-to-Noise Ratio playback
Gigabyte's motherboard features higher capability audio solution with 108 dB Signal-to-Noise Ratio (SNR) playback quality to deliver high-performance, multi-channel HD audio. SNR is a comparison of the amount of signal to the amount of noise such as hiss present in the signal. A higher SNR equals a better audio experience.
100% hardware VRD 12 compliant CPU power design
Gigabyte 6 series motherboard incorporates an Intel approved Intersil PWM controller that is VRD 12 (Voltage Regulator Down) compliant. This means that it offers features that include SerialVID (SVID) which transfers power management information between the processor and voltage regulator controller, allowing more robust and efficient signaling control between the CPU and PWM controller - hence, delivering a more energy efficient platform.
Gigabyte Touch BIOS
Navigating through the BIOS to change system settings can be a daunting task for users not familiar with control "F" functions and mouse-less navigation. While some EFI BIOS try to address this with a mouse friendly environment, many implementations still lack a certain ease-of-use necessary for most people. With Gigabyte Touch BIOS, Gigabyte engineers have completely re-imagined how users can interact with their BIOS, allowing for a more intuitive user experience. In fact, with a touch screen monitor, Gigabyte Touch BIOS is as easy to use as most apps on your iPhone.
SuperSpeed USB 3.0
Gigabyte motherboard boasts SuperSpeed USB 3.0 technology made possible through an additional onboard host controller. With superfast transfer rates, users are able to experience a theoretical 10x improvement over USB 2.0. Additionally, backwards compatibility with USB 2.0 assures users of long term use of their legacy USB 2.0 devices.
HDMI is a High-Definition Multimedia Interface which provides up to 5 Gb/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.
DVI (Digital Visual Interface) is a video interface standard designed for carrying uncompressed digital video data and to maximize the visual quality of digital display devices, such as LCD monitors, digital projectors, and so on. In addition, the DVI interface is compatible with HDCP (High-bandwidth Digital Content Protection).
ErP Lot 6 supportIn The Box
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.
