- GIGABYTE Ultra DurableGIGABYTE Ultra Durable debuts on GIGABYTE motherboards, with a range of features and component choices that provide record-breaking performance, cool and efficient operation and extended motherboard lifespan. Its all Solid Caps (Capacitors) and Low RDS (on) MOSFETs are rated to work at higher temperatures to provide a longer lifespan. Gigabyte uses Anti-Surge ICs to protect the motherboard against power surges, and features High Resistance ICs which help protect against electrostatic discharge.
- Humidity ProtectionHumidity can play havoc on a motherboard's circuitry. A part of the GIGABYTE's GIGABYTE Ultra Durable design, the new Glass Fabric PCB design helps protect against electrical shorts due to humidity by reducing the gaps in spacing between PCB filaments.
- Ultra SafeGIGABYTE motherboards feature GIGABYTE DualBIOS, an exclusive technology from GIGABYTE that protects arguably one of your PC's most crucial components, the BIOS. GIGABYTE DualBIOS means that your motherboard has both a 'Main BIOS' and a 'Backup BIOS', making users protected from BIOS failure due to virus attack, hardware malfunction, improper OC settings or power failure during the update process.
- High Quality Audio CapacitorsGIGABYTE 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.
- Dedicated Audio Hardware ZoneSeparation on the PCB layer protects the board's sensitive analog audio components. This model also features separate analog and digital ground to protect against Electromagnetic Interference (EMI).
- Multi-display support with AMD CrossFireFlexible graphics capabilities - Up to 2 VGA cards are supported for 2-way AMD CrossFire (running at x16, x4 bandwidth), delivering the ultimate in graphics performance for gaming enthusiasts who demand the highest frame rates without compromising resolution.
