Gigabyte 7 series motherboards combine a host of exciting technologies with the latest Intel Z77 Express chipset, creating a unique range of motherboard designs that harness the outstanding performance of the 3rd generation Intel Core processors. With an exclusive 'Digital' VRM design, Gigabyte 3D Power and Gigabyte 3D BIOS (Dual UEFI), Gigabyte 7 series motherboards ensure exceptional power delivery and absolute control, with additional features that ensure an unrivaled experience on your next PC build.
Gigabyte all digital power engine
Gigabyte Z77 series motherboards take advantage of an exclusive All Digital PWM controller array, to deliver power to the board's 3rd generation Intel Core processor. Using entirely 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, VTT, processor graphics and memory, without doubt the most important components on your motherboard. This all digital power system, with precise auto voltage compensation, provides you with exceptional control over the component power delivery on your Gigabyte 7 series motherboard.
Digital voltage, frequency and phase control
Utilizing an exclusive all digital controller array, Gigabyte's 3D Power features precise Auto Voltage Compensation to deliver a steady flow of power to the system, no matter the loading. With digital controllers for the CPU (Vcore), VTT, processor graphics and memory (DDR), users can make real-time adjustments with the exclusive Gigabyte 3D Power Utility, that include settings such as OVP (Over Voltage Protection), Load-line Calibration and on-the-fly PWM frequency adjustment.
Gigabyte 3D Power utility
Users can enjoy a fully interactive 3D utility that facilitates adjustment of the 3 dimensions that control the power delivery to your CPU and memory: voltage, phase and frequency. These parameters are crucial to how the digital PWM supplies power to critical areas of the motherboard and can help users quickly obtain the highest, most stable overclock.
Intel Rapid Start Technology
Intel Rapid Start Technology gets your device up and running faster from even the deepest sleep. This means users will be able to experience almost zero power draw from their PC, but be able to resume Windows 7 is a few seconds without having the PC go through a full system boot. With Intel Rapid Start Technology the previous session resumes to the exact as it was, so that applications are still in the same state and no application data is lost.
Gigabyte on/off charge
Gigabyte 7 series motherboards feature on/off charge, a unique Gigayte 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.
Enhanced built-in visuals
With updated and improved processor graphics and multimedia, 3rd generation Intel Core processors offer you the best possible media and entertainment experience. Native support for multiple digital displays, plus DirectX 11 capable graphics, Intel Quick Sync Video 2.0 and Intel HD Graphics 4000/2500 ensure you can enjoy high levels of 3D gaming and HD content manipulation.
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.
12 phase power design
Gigabyte's cutting edge 12 phase power VRM design utilizes the highest caliber components to provide unadulterated, smooth power to the CPU. The innovative 12 phase power VRM has been designed and engineered to deliver fast transient response times through quick and seamless power delivery during extensive CPU loading variations. In addition, heat from the VRM is effectively reduced by spreading the load between the 12 power phases, resulting in a cooler, more stable platform.
LAN optimizer - intelligent optimization network management toolIn The Box
Gigabyte LAN optimizer is designed to allow the user to manage different types of network traffic so that data streams such as HD media, web browsing or online gaming can be prioritized, taking precedence over large data downloads that tend to strangle overall network bandwidth.
