Gigabyte Ultra Durable 4 Plus
Gigabyte Ultra Durable 4 Plus debuts on Gigabyte 8 series motherboard, 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 and low RDS MOSFETs which are rated to work at higher temperatures to provide a longer lifespan.
Gigabyte motherboard features Gigabyte DualBIOS, an exclusive technology from Gigabyte that protects arguably one of your PC's most crucial components, the BIOS. Gigabyte DualBIOS means that your motherboard has both a 'main BIOS' and a 'backup BIOS', making users protected from BIOS failure due to virus attack, hardware malfunction, improper O. C. settings or power failure during the update process.
High ESD protection for USB and LAN
Gigabyte 8 series motherboard raises the bar in terms of protecting your system, providing advanced electrostatic discharge (ESD) protection for both your Ethernet LAN and USB ports, both common sources of ESD-related failures. Each LAN and USB port is paired with a dedicated protection filter that can withstand high electrostatic discharges, protecting your system from common electrical surges and even direct lighting strikes.
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 LCD monitors, digital projectors, and so on. In addition, the DVI interface is compatible with HDCP (High-bandwidth Digital Content Protection).
On/Off Charge technology
GIGABYTE On/Off Charge technology allows you to charge your iPhone, iPad and iPod Touch regardless of whether your PC is on, in standby mode or even off. A derivative of Gigabyte's highly acclaimed 3x USB power feature, On/Off Charge enables devices to draw more current from Gigabyte motherboard USB ports than standard USB ports allow, so that charging from your PC can be as fast as with a charger.
LAN optimizer - intelligent optimization network management tool
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.
