Gigabyte 7 series motherboards combine a host of exciting technologies with the Intel Z77 Express chipset, creating a unique range of motherboard designs that harness the outstanding performance of the 3rd generation Intel Core processors.
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 the exciting experience for novice and experienced users alike. UEFI BIOS also brings native support for large hard drives on 64-bit operating systems.
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 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. Gigabtye's signature M.I.T. tuning technology can be found alongside fully configurable parameters for Gigabyte's digital 3D Power engine. In short, advanced mode combines the signature Gigabyte BIOS expertise you've come to expect, wrapped a slick and optimized graphical UEFI interface.
Humidity can play havoc on a motherboard's circuitry. Gigabyte's Glass Fabric PCB design helps protect against electrical shorts due to humidity by reducing the gaps in spacing between PCB filaments.
Power failure protection
Permanent damage from power surge or failure during BIOS update, can be avoided with Gigabyte DaulBIOS, which automatically enables a secondary, back up BIOS. Gigabyte also uses anti-surge ICs to protect the motherboard against power surges.
Intel Smart Connect technology
Intel Smart Connect technology means that your email, favorite apps, and social networks are continually and automatically updated even when the system is asleep. No more waiting for the latest world news or friends' updates to be delivered - just press the 'on' button and you're up-to-date and ready to go.
Gigabyte on/off charge
Gigabyte 7 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.
Faster media encoding performance
Saves your valuable time when create and edit video, synchronize it with other devices, and share it - at home and on the Internet. Intel quick sync video uses hardware on the processor, instead of software, to accelerate video encoding.
DirectX 11 support - better visual experience
Microsoft DirectX 11 provides eye-popping 3D visuals found for today's latest PC games and is designed to be more efficient, leverage the power of today's multi-core processors, and provide support for sophisticated shading and texturing techniques such as tessellation.
Multi-display support with AMD CrossFireXIn The Box
AMD CrossFireX delivers the ultimate graphics performance for gaming enthusiasts who demand the highest frame rates without compromising on resolution.
