Product Information

Gigabyte Ultra Durable

Gigabyte Ultra Durable provides a range of features and component choices that provide record-breaking performance, cool and efficient operation and extended motherboard lifespan.

Ultra performance

Gigabyte uses Solid Caps for CPU VRM and Low RDS(on) MOSFETs which are rated to work at higher temperatures to provide a longer lifespan.

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.

Humidity protection

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

Gigabyte also uses Anti-Surge ICs to protect the motherboard against power surges.

Electrostatic protection

Gigabyte motherboards feature High Resistance ICs which help protect the motherboard against electrostatic discharge.

High ESD protection for USB 3.0 and LAN

Gigabyte 8 Series motherboards raise 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 can withstand high electrostatic discharges, protecting your system from common electrical surges and even direct lighting strikes.

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 8 series motherboards provide native 4K support.

HDMI interface

HDMI 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.

On/Off Charge technology

GIGABYTE On/Off Charge technology allows you to charge your device 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

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.

Gigabyte EasyTune

GIGABYTE EasyTune provides a simple and easy-to-use interface that allows users to fine-tune their system settings.

Gigabyte Smart Fan 2

As well as offering more system fans than ever before, Gigabyte 8 Series motherboards feature updated and improved CPU and system fan speed controls, with individual airflow and speed settings available via a dedicated digital controller. Gigabyte Smart Fan 2 allows you to configure CPU fans and system fans.
