Gigabyte’s 7 series boards will feature these new technologies:
Dual UEFI with Exclusive 3D BIOS – Gigabyte 7 series motherboards also feature Gigabyte’s revolutionary 3D BIOS that is based on the exclusive Gigabyte UEFI DualBIOS technology. With an updated look and feel, this new 3D BIOS offers two distinct modes of interaction in a BIOS environment, 3D Mode and Advanced Mode, that re-draw the traditional BIOS user experience with a far more intuitive and graphical interface.
Exclusive All Digital Engine – Gigabyte’s new All Digital power design for Gigabyte 7 series motherboards allows users to have greater control over the power delivered to their 3rd generation Intel Core processors on the LGA 1155 socket. Using entirely digital controllers for the CPU, processor graphics, VTT and system memory, users can enjoy more precise power delivery to the PC’s energy sensitive components than previously possible.
GIGABYTE Ultra Durable 4 – Gigabyte 7 series motherboards feature the latest Gigabyte Ultra Durable 4 technology, embracing a range of exclusive technologies that guarantee DIY PC builders the absolute best protection for their PC. Specific features prevent common malfunction threats including humidity and moisture, electro-static discharge, sudden power loss and high operating temperatures.
Lucid Virtu MVP – Gigabyte 7 series motherboards feature the latest Lucid Virtu GPU virtualization technology, Lucid Universal MVP, which improves the visual and graphical performance of your PC. Offering switchable graphics allows the PC to automatically switch between onboard Intel processor graphics and a discrete GPU depending on the application being used, Lucid Virtu MVP also features HyperFormance technology which eliminates redundant rendering tasks to improve frame rates and eliminate screen tearing.
Gigabyte Bluetooth 4.0/Dual Band 300 Mbps Wi-Fi PCIe Card – Gigabyte 7 series motherboards include an exclusive PCIe expansion card that offers support for the latest Bluetooth 4.0 (Smart Ready) and dual band 300 Mbps Wi-Fi connectivity (available in specific SKUs). With the growing availability of affordable or free remote mobile to PC software, such as Splashtop and Dropbox, Gigabyte believes that now is the time to explore and enjoy the home cloud: a personal cloud within the secure environment of a home network where the performance and functionality of desktop PCs can be utilized and controlled by portable cloud devices.
GIGABYTE EZ Setup – Gigabyte 7 series motherboards feature an exclusive EZ Setup utility that allows users to more easily implement the latest Intel responsiveness technologies. Within a simple user interface, you can install and configure Intel Smart Response, Intel Rapid Start, and Intel Smart Connect. Gigabyte EZ Setup will automate the install procedure for each of these technologies, reducing the procedure to a few simple clicks of your mouse.
Onboard mSATA Support – All ATX form factor Gigabyte 7 series motherboards feature an onboard mSATA connector that, together with Gigabyte’s EZ Smart Response technology, allows users to simply and cost effectively enjoy better responsiveness from their PCs. mSATA solid state drives have been made popular by the rapid growth of tablet PCs, and provide a cheaper solution for smart caching because they are available in smaller capacities than traditional SSDs.
