Dual Thunderbolt™ 2 – The Fastest Connection to Your PC Just Got Faster
The new Dual Thunderbolt™ 2 controller from Intel®, builds on the success of previous revisions, adding channel bandwidth aggregation to facilitate single channel transfer speeds of up 20Gbps, compared to a max of 10Gbps on previous designs. This allows for incredible data transfer speeds when using high-performance storage devices, while also supporting daisy-chaining of up 12 devices and triple digital display support.
OC Ignition (Patent Pending)
There are occasions as an overclocker when you want to shut down the system without turning off the power to other parts of the system, for example the drives and system fans. This is where OC Ignition is really useful.
Hitting the OC Ignition button gives continuous, uninterrupted power to all the motherboard's connected drives and system fans, but not to the CPU. This is useful in "cold bug" situations when you need to heat the CPU to a bootable temperature, but you'd prefer the fans to keep spinning, reducing moisture build-up.
Overclockers using i-RAM drives may also want to maintain SATA power and not risk losing their customized OS install while users with regular SSDs or HDDs also know that frequent powering on and off is harmful to your drives in the long-term.
OC Ignition is also useful in allowing users to pre-test water cooling setups, and even allows case mod demos to be developed without having to fully turn on the PC.
GIGABYTE OC Touch includes a range of easy to use buttons and switches featured exclusively on GIGABYTE OC motherboards.
OC PCIe Switch
Overclockers can manually turn on or off each installed PCIe lane of the motherboard allowing users to effortlessly remove graphic cards from the system without the hassle of physically removal. This is especially convenient for VGA overclocking on LN2 and water cooled systems.
OC Peg adds auxiliary power to the PCIe slots of your motherboard, improving system stability in extreme configurations. This is especially useful in power-hungry four-way graphics configurations.
