Description

UNPARALLELED PERFORMANCE
With the fast-moving technology changes, GIGABYTE always follows the latest trends and provides customers with advanced features and latest technologies. GIGABYTE motherboards are equipped with upgraded power solution, latest storage standards and outstanding connectivity to enable optimized performance for gaming.

Shielded Memory Routing
All memory routing is under the PCB inner layer shielded by a large ground layer to protect from external interference.

Impedance Optimized Topology
By optimizing memory trace width, length and style from HPC simulation to actual implementation, overall impedance is lowered between CPU memory controller and memory modules to achieve higher DDR5 speed.

Low Signal Loss PCB
Server grade mid-loss or low-loss PCB material is chosen to lower signal loss inside PCB and maintain DDR5 high speed signal transmission.

DDR5 Auto Booster
Automatically Boost the Native DDR5 frequency to 5000MHz while the system is under heavy loading by a single click.

XMP 3.0 User Profile
Define and create your own SPD profile into Native and XMP 3.0 memory modules or apply the pre-tuned profiles to XMP 3.0 User Profile. Two user-defined profiles can be saved, loaded either locally or from/to an external storage device.
– Two empty SPD profiles can be defined by users and carry to next computer
– Transfer DDR5 XMP Booster profiles into XMP 3.0 User Profiles
– Quick memory performance simulation based on user input clock and timing parameters
– Profile save and load function to share your memory parameters online

Hybrid Cores Optimization
With new Intel Hybrid technology, GIGABYTE exclusively creates two new “CPU Upgrade” in BIOS profiles to meet different users’ scenarios by adjusting P-Core and E-Core activation and voltage policy.
– Deactivate all E-Core
– Zero compromise on gaming performance
– Up to 20% lower CPU package power
– Up to 5°C lower CPU temperature

OUTSTANDING THERMAL DESIGN
GIGABYTE Motherboards’ Un-throttled performance is guaranteed by innovative and optimized thermal design to ensure the best CPU, Chipset, SSD stability and low temperatures under full load application and gaming performance.

4X Large Surface
Increased surface area up to 4X larger compared to traditional heatsinks. It improves heat dissipation from the MOSFETs.

Real One-piece Build
TMOS is a TRUE single piece heatsink. Its one-piece design and larger surface drastically improve the cooling performance against competitors’ multi-piece design.

Multi-Cut Design
TMOS features several channels and inlets on the heatsink. This design allows for the air flow to go through which leads to a great improvement of the heat transfer performance.

M.2 Thermal Guard
With durability in mind, GIGABYTE provides a thermal solution for M.2 SSD devices. The M.2 Thermal Guard prevents throttling and bottlenecks from high speed M.2 SSDs as it helps to dissipate heat before it becomes an issue.

SMART FAN 6
Smart Fan 6 contains several unique cooling features that ensure gaming PC maintain its performance while staying cool and quiet. Multiple fan headers can support PWM/DC fan and pump, and users can easily define each fan curve based on different temperature sensors across the board via intuitive user interface.

Cooling Features
– High Current Support
Each fan headers support PWM and DC fan and Water Cooling Pump , and up to 24W (12V x 2A) with Over-Current Protection

– Precision Control
Multiple temperature/fan speed control points for precise fan curve

– Dual Curve Mode
Slope/Stair dual mode for different user scenario

– Fan Stop
Fan can stop completely below users’ specified temperature point

Smart Fan 6 BIOS UI
1. Improve fan curve UI

We increase control points from 5 to 7 and larger fan speed graph for precise and easier fan curve control.
2. Slope/Stair dual graph mode
Fan curve can be quickly switch with Slope and Stair modes for different user scenario. Slope is traditional and intuitive linear fan speed curve. With newly added Stair non-linear mode, fan keeps at same speed between specified temperature interval.
3. Manual Input
For advanced users, we provide fan speed manual input for more precise control.
4. EZ Tuning
Use can place 4 EZ Tuning points at rough temperature/fan speed, and Smart Fan 6 can quickly generate a fan curve.
5. Fan curve profile
Fan curve profile can be saved in BIOS ROM, profile will be kept after updating BIOS.

CONNECTIVITY
GIGABYTE Motherboards enable the ultimate connection experience with blazing data-transfer speeds through the next generation network, storage, and Wi-Fi connectivity.

Four PCIe 4.0×4 M.2
GIGABYTE Motherboards are focused on delivering M.2 technology to enthusiasts who want to maximize their system’s potential.

802.11ax Wi-Fi 6E
