With twice the bandwidth compared to its previous generation, and backwards compatibility with USB 2.0 and 3.0, the much improved USB 3.1 protocol is available over the new reversible USB Type-C™ and the traditional USB Type-A connector for better compatibility over a wider range of devices.

Connecting the Future - USB Type-C™

  • The World's Next Universal Connector
  • Reversible USB Type-C™ with USB 3.1 Gen 2

Support for DDR4 XMP Up to 4266MHz and Beyond*

  • GIGABYTE is offering a tested and proven platform that ensures proper compatibility with profiles up to 4266MHz and beyond. All users need to do to attain this performance boost is to ensure that their memory module is XMP capable and that the XMP function is activated and enabled on their GIGABYTE motherboard.

What is XMP?

  • DDR4 memory modules are available at a stock frequency of 2133MHz, but as frequency tweaking requires a considerable amount of effort and knowledge, memory vendors encode XMP profiles which can automatically modify the timings of the supported memory modules to work with your CPU and to achieve increased performance.

Broad DDR4 Compatibility with Support List of 1000+ DDR4 Validated!

  • GIGABYTE partners very closely with memory vendors from around the world to ensure that modules offered by popular memory brands are compatible with GIGABYTE Motherboards. GIGABYTE has verified over 1000+ different modules to ensure performance in a GIGABYTE built system.

NVMe PCIe Gen3 x4 2280 M.2 Connector

  • GIGABYTE M.2 solution offers considerably faster storage performance and support for both PCIe and SATA interface for M.2 SSD devices.

  

GIGABYTE Patented Double Locking

  • First Lock - (Front Side) Inserted from the top for better retention.
  • Second Lock -  (Back Side) Soldered for a stronger bond.

Anti-Sulfur Resistor Design

  • Sulfur compounds in the air can penetrate tiny onboard resistors creating chemical change and causing these resistors to open or short. If either of these occurs the motherboard will fail to function. By equipping resistors with an Anti-Sulfur Design GIGABYTE gives Ultra Durable Motherboards a whole new meaning.

Refreshed BIOS Easy, Smart, and Friendly

  • The BIOS is essential for users during initial setup to allow for the most optimal settings. With a new GUI and easier to use functionalities, GIGABYTE has been able to reinvent the BIOS to give users a better experience while setting up their new system.

  • The GIGABYTE @BIOS app allows you to update your systems BIOS from within Windows using a simple and slick graphical user interface. @BIOS can automatically download the latest version from the GIGABYTE servers or you can update your BIOS from a file on your computer. @BIOS also allows you to save your current BIOS to a file, recover your previous BIOS from an image and backup your BIOS to an image.

3D OSD

  • 3D OSD automatically detects and displays your system information during games, allowing you to easily get a hold of your system information without switching between screens.

Long Lifespan Durable Black™ Solid Caps

  • GIGABYTE motherboards integrate the absolute best quality solid state capacitors that are rated to perform at maximum efficiency for extended periods, even in extreme performance configurations. With ultra-low ESR no matter how high the CPU load, this provides peace of mind for end users who want to push their system hard, yet demand absolute reliability and stability. These exclusive capacitors also come in customized jet black, exclusively on GIGABYTE motherboards.

2x Copper PCB Design (2oz Copper PCB)

  • GIGABYTE's exclusive 2X Copper PCB design provides sufficient power trace paths between components to handle greater than normal power loads and to remove heat from the critical CPU power delivery area. This is essential to ensure the motherboard is able to handle the increased power loading that is necessary when overclocking.

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.
