For the first time DIY PC builders can now enjoy the benefits of enterprise-class hardware to build their own high-end workstation. The Gigabyte X79S-UP5-WIFI provides performance, reliability and additional features that prosumes and professional content creators demand. The X79S-UP5-WIFI reaches beyond standard PC technologies and features to offer the perfect platform to build a workstation that caters for needs of today's creative professionals: computer aided design - digital content creators - Prosumers.

Gigabyte X79 series motherboards are the first to take advantage of the exclusive Gigabyte 3D power, an all hardware and software-based digital power engine for both the PWM and memory that delivers unprecedented power delivery control.

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 60 A, which together are able to deliver up to 60° C cooler temperatures than traditional motherboards.

Intel Xeon support
Intel Xeon E5 2600/1600 processors bring the successful Sandy Bridge architecture to the Intel Xeon processor line-up in the form of Sandy Bridge EP. With up to 8 cores coupled with a larger 20 MB L3 cache and clock speeds of up to 3.6 GHz Intel Xeon processors offer unrivaled performance.

Serial attached SCSI - SAS
SAS is currently the dominant storage technology used in server, workstation and professional class media creation computers.

ECC DDR3 support
The Gigabyte motherboard supports more robust and ultra reliable ECC (error-code correction) DDR3 memory modules. Designed to detect and eliminate all single-bit data errors to ensure virtually zero data corruption.

4 channel memory architecture
The Intel Core i7 processors feature an integrated memory controller that supports four channel DDR3 memory for the first time. Offering unrivaled 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 Gen. 3 PCI Express technology, delivering maximum data bandwidth for forthcoming discrete graphics cards.

3-way CrossFireX and 3-way SLI support
The Gigabyte X79S-UP5-WIFI is equipped to help extreme gamers see the enemy from distance, regardless of how bloody the battlefield, offering the utmost graphics flexibility and upgradeability with multiple GPU support that includes three PCI Express slots for both AMD CrossFire X and Nvidia SLI technologies in 3-way discrete card configurations. The GIGABYTE X79S-UP5-WIFI motherboard delivers maximum FPS, allowing gamers to see more clearly, aim faster, and moves more quickly.

OC-Dual BIOS features a unique back-panel BIOS switcher and LED indicator, allowing users to select one BIOS for normal use, and another for specifically designated for overclocking. This means that if your overclocking configuration suffers from instability, you can easily revert to your stable settings if needed.

Exclusive Bluetooth 4.0/Wi-Fi expansion card
The motherboard also includes an exclusive PCIe expansion card that offers support for the latest Bluetooth 4.0 and IEEE 802.11 a/b/g/n Wi-Fi connectivity. The Bluetooth 4.0 standard includes Smart Ready technology that is debuting on mobile devices including the Apple iPhone 4s.

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 (6 Gbps) 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 Gigabyte 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.
