    Default [GIGABYTE] GIGABYTE Claims World No. 1 Spot for Motherboard Durability

    -- GIGABYTE Claims World No. 1 Spot for Motherboard Durability --




    -- Celebrates 4 Generations of Ultra Durable™ Motherboards with Availability of New Ultra Durable™ 4 Technology on Future 7 Series Models -–

    City of Industry, California, March, 7th 2011 – GIGABYTE TECHNOLGY Co. Ltd., a leading manufacturer of motherboards and graphics cards, today announced their upcoming 7 series motherboards will boast GIGABYTE’s industry leading Ultra Durable™ 4 technology, helping to safe-guard GIGABYTE motherboards from common everyday threats, including humidity and moisture, electro-static discharge, sudden power loss and high operating temperatures.


    “With the launch of the first Ultra Durable motherboard in 2006, GIGABYTE revolutionized the motherboard industry by making quality the number one focus in our motherboard design,” commented Henry Kao, Vice President of GIGABYTE Motherboard Business Unit. “Five and a half years later, GIGABYTE maintains our leadership in quality design by equipping our upcoming 7 series motherboards with even more lifespan enhancing technologies in the form of Ultra Durable™ 4.”

    GIGABYTE Ultra Durable™ 4 motherboards embrace a range of exclusive technologies that guarantee DIY PC builders the absolute best protection for their PC, with built-in features that prevent common malfunction threats users encounter on a day-to-day basis.



    2X Copper PCB

    GIGABYTE Ultra Durable™ 4 design features 2X the amount of copper of a traditional motherboard for both the Power and Ground layers which dramatically lowers system temperature by delivering a more efficient spreading of heat from critical areas of the motherboard such as the CPU power zone throughout the entire PCB. GIGABYTE's Ultra Durable™ 4 also lowers the PCB impedance by 50%, which helps to reduce electrical waste and further lowers component temperatures. A 2X Copper layer design also provides improved signal quality and lower EMI (Electromagnetic Interference), providing better system stability and allowing for greater margins for overclocking.




    Humidity Protection



    There is nothing more harmful to the longevity of your PC than moisture, and most parts of the world experience moisture in the air as humidity at some point during the year. Humidity_Protection_IconGIGABYTE Ultra Durable™ 4 motherboards have been designed to make sure that humidity is never an issue, incorporating a new Glass Fabric PCB technology that repels moisture caused by humid and damp conditions. Using a new kind of PCB material which reduces the amount of space between the fiber weave, Glass Fiber PCB technology makes it more difficult for moisture to penetrate compared to traditional motherboard PCBs. This offers much better protection from short circuit and system malfunction caused by humid and damp conditions.




    Electrostatic Protection



    All GIGABYTE Ultra Durable™ 4 motherboards use high quality IC microchips that are rated with higher electro-static discharge (ESD) Electrostatic_Protection_Iconresistance than traditional IC implementations. GIGABYTE Ultra Durable™ 4 motherboards use ICs with up to 3 times the ESD resistance levels compared to traditional ICs. This helps to better protect the motherboard, its components and the PC in general against potential damage caused by static electricity, a common threat to today’s PCs.




    Power Failure Protection

    If your home experiences a sudden power outage for any reason, GIGABYTE Ultra Durable™ 4 Classic are equipped to ensure that you won’t be dealing with a fatal malfunction. All Power_Failure_Protection_IconGIGABYTE Ultra Durable™ 4 motherboards use patented DualBIOS™ technology to provide fail safe protection for the BIOS on your motherboard, automatically refreshing your BIOS from a back up version in the case of a critical power outage.



    GIGABYTE Ultra Durable™ 4 motherboards also feature special anti-surge ICs that protect your motherboard, and your PC, from any surge in power delivery that may occur, helping to ensure that your PC is equipped to deal with any kind of irregular and inconsistent power delivery.




    High Temperature Protection



    GIGABYTE Ultra Durable™ 4 motherboards feature specially selected components that make your PC capable of higher temperatures in more extreme conditions, while at the same High_Temp_Protection_Icontime preventing your PC from overheating. Using all solid capacitors for the GIGABYTE Ultra Durable™ 4 range both reduces overall board temperatures while, making the motherboard more robust at higher temperatures. The choice of Lower RDS(on) MOSFETs also helps to reduce operating temperatures significantly compared to traditional MOSFET solutions. These component technologies combine to guarantee enhanced longevity and stability for your PC.

    Yeah. I had about made up my mind to stick with Z68, but maybe my subconscious knew it all along: I had recently told my wife, in the midst of a lot of spending on a woodworking shop we're setting up, that I better squirrel away some money as I might want to upgrade "one more time".
    After seeing the new Gigabyte Z77 mobo's I'm lusting again....... I have this urge to start completely (and expensively!) from scratch; new case, new psu, etc etc.

    Now everyone start giving me good reasons to upgrade!
    Why stick with Gigabyte? (oh never mind: I probably will anyway!)
    Why go Z77?
    Why go new 22nm cpu?

    Hi Lsdmeasap,

    What is the maximum Mhz for memory modules? According to information I have read it is 1600, see link below:

    GIGABYTE - Motherboard - Socket 1155 - GA-Z77X-UD5H (rev. 1.0)

    There doesn't appear to be any support for 1866 and 2133 RAM modules unlike Gigabyte Z68 motherboards, is there any reason for this?

    Why go Z77? << because, it will be a nice upgrade from your Z68! You'll see more info on these boards once Intel NDA is lifted!
    Why go new 22nm cpu? << Droolllling

    First, many of the specs right now may be generic due to the Intel NDA, information and specifications will be updated once the NDA is lifted.

    The memory will be 2400 or above, just so you know! Although, official spec may remain at 2133, I'm not sure how Intel plans to handle that.

    Since Intel has pushed back the release date I guess we'll have to depend on what the mobo manufacturers dribble out to us.
    My concern here is, the motherboard manufacturers seem to be ready to roll, but Intel isn't. What is that going to mean for the first boards coming out? If something has to change on the boards, how quickly can that happen?
    Or is Intel just having problems making enough 22nm CPU's? Availability seems sparce.......

    That's just a rumor I believe, I think it's now been confirmed that only laptops CPU's will be pushed back.

    I think everything is pretty close to being fully ready, CPU's and boards, just wanting on Intel to allow things to be sold. Any revisions on boards could take 2-3 months, just depends on what the issue is and how costly it is to correct it.

    I don't think you have anything to worry about, every time there is a new CPU or chipset this is always how it is. Many users have and can't talk about due to NDA, board manufacturers are ready to sell but can't due to sales dates and NDA, ect all due to Intel's set time for publishing info, specifications, benchmarks results, and then finally sales release dates.

    This is the latest I see, for the CPU's, boards should be available before that

    Thanks for clarifying that for me, I'll await to see the full specification....I know which MB I'll go for.

    3. Support for DDR3 1600/1333/1066 MHz memory modules
    * To support DDR3 1600 MHz, you must install an Intel 22nm CPU.
