Intel Celeron N3050 processor
The Intel Celeron N3050 Dual-Core processor is the latest system on chip (SoC) from Intel, combining CPU, graphics and memory controller in one package. Based on the 14nm manufacturing process, the Intel Celeron N3050 uses the smallest package of any desktop processor within a low thermal envelope of on 6 watts. The Intel Celeron N3050 boasts excellent performance including DX11.2 gaming on Intel HD Graphics, plus a dedicated HEVC decoder for smooth 4K UHD video playback.
Bringing UDIMM support to Braswell
The GIGABYTE motherboard is specifically designed with two UDIMM slots, making it compatible with widely available desktop DDR3/L memory. Unlike SO-DIMM memory, UDIMM has the advantage of bringing to users a wider and more easily accessible range of RAM.
High quality audio capacitors
GIGABYTE Ultra Durable motherboards use high quality Nippon Chemicon ARE series audio capacitors. These professional audio capacitors deliver the highest quality sound resolution and sound expansion to create the most realistic sound effects for user experience.
HDMI is a High-Definition Multimedia Interface which provides up to 5Gb/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.
4K Ultra HD support
4K resolution is the next technological milestone in high-definition content delivery, utilizing approximately 4,000 pixels on the horizontal axis, more than four times today's standard HD pixel density. GIGABYTE motherboards provide native 4K support with integrated Intel HD Graphics via HDMI.
GIGABYTE Ultra Durable
GIGABYTE Ultra Durable debuts on GIGABYTE motherboards, with a range of features and component choices that provide record-breaking performance, cool and efficient operation and extended motherboard lifespan.
GIGABYTE uses All Solid Caps (Capacitors) and Low RDS(on) MOSFETs which are rated to work at higher temperatures to provide a longer lifespan.
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 surge protection
GIGABYTE also uses Anti-Surge ICs to protect the motherboard against power surges.
GIGABYTE motherboards feature High Resistance ICs which help protect the motherboard against electrostatic discharge.
The updated GIGABYTE @BIOS app allows you to update your system's BIOS from within Windows using a simple and slick graphical user interface by automatically downloading the latest version from the GIGABYTE servers.
