Gigabyte Z77-HD4 motherboard combines 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 Gigabyte 3D BIOS (Dual UEFI), UD4 Classic technology and unique EZ set up utilities, Gigabyte Z77-HD4 motherboard ensure outstanding system absolute control, with additional features that ensure an unrivaled experience on your next PC build.
Brings HDMI and DVI outputs to value segment motherboard models
The Gigabyte HD motherboard series defies the current ethos that means true digital display outputs are reserved for upper mainstream models, adding both HDMI and DVI ports to a range of motherboard models at attractive and affordable price points. All DIY enthusiasts can now enjoy true HD display capability using the most commonly integrated digital output technologies on today's HD displays and TVs.
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 an 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 Gigabte'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.
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.
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.
Gigabyte Ultra Durable 4 Classic motherboards feature high ESD resistance ICs which help protect the motherboard against electrostatic discharge.
Power failure protection
Permanent damage from power surge or failure during BIOS update, can be avoided with Gigabyte DualBIOS, which automatically enables a secondary, back up BIOS. Gigabyte also uses anti-surge ICs to protect the motherboard against power surges.
Gigabyte EZ smart response
The Gigabyte EZ smart response utility is a simple application that allows users to quickly and easily configure their system for Intel Smart Response technology. In the past, enabling Intel Smart Response meant users needed to enter the BIOS in order to configure their system for RAID mode, which then required a complete reinstall of the operating system. Once that processes was complete, users then needed to install the Intel Rapid Storage Utility as well as configure Intel's Smart Response Technology.
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.
Integrated DVI interfaceIn The Box
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 flat LCD monitors, digital projectors, and so on. In addition, DVI interface is compatible with HDCP (High-bandwidth Digital Content Protection), allowing the playback of Blu-ray/HD DVD and other protected media contents.
