Unique Features

All Digital PWM Design with 3D Power Utility

GIGABYTE All Digital Engine

GIGABYTE Z77 series motherboards take advantage of an exclusive All Digital Engine to deliver maximum power to 3rd generation Intel Core processors. Using entirely digital controllers means that more precise power delivery to the motherboards most power hungry and energy sensitive components is possible.

GIGABYTE All Digital Engine

GIGABYTE All Digital technology means that there are individual digital controllers for the CPU, processor graphics, VTT and system memory; without doubt the most important components on your motherboard. This All Digital Engine features Precise Auto Voltage Compensation, providing exceptional control over the way power is delivered to your GIGABYTE 7 series motherboard.

GIGABYTE 3D Power Utility

GIGABYTE 3D Power is an interactive utility that facilitates complete mastery of the 3 dimensions that monitor and control the power to your PC: Voltage, Phase and Frequency.

GIGABYTE 3D BIOS (patent pending)

The newly updated GIGABYTE 3D BIOS application is based on GIGABYTE UEFI DualBIOS technology and provides consumers with two exclusive modes of interaction, bringing enthusiast and mainstream users a choice of unique and powerful graphical interfaces.

UEFI DualBIOS Technology

At the heart of this exciting 3D BIOS technology is a pair of physical BIOS ROMs containing GIGABYTEs exclusive in-house designed UEFI DualBIOS technology. With a superior graphical interface capable of 32-bit color imaging and fluid user-friendly mouse navigation, GIGABYTE DualUEFI BIOS Technology also safe-guards your PC from malfunction by automatically refreshing your BIOS from a back up version in the case of a critical power outage

3D Mode
Designed to provide an extremely streamlined and user-friendly BIOS environment, GIGABYTEs exclusive 3D mode offers a fully interactive and illustrative GUI that allows users to easily and intuitively make key adjustments to the UEFI DualBIOS settings for optimum performance. 3D Mode allows novice or casual users to more clearly understand the areas of the motherboard that are being affected through the BIOS settings, gaining a clearer understanding of the BIOS functionality.

Advanced Mode
Advanced mode provides a more comprehensive UEFI BIOS environment that is designed specifically for overclockers and power users who want maximum control over their PCs hardware. GIGABTYEs M.I.T. tuning technology can be found alongside fully configurable parameters for GIGABTEs all new digital 3D Power engine. In short, advanced mode combines the signature GIGABYTE BIOS expertise youve come to expect, wrapped a slick, new and optimized graphical UEFI interface.

Onboard mSATA SSD Connector

Simple and Efficient

mSATA modules are easy to install, take up less space, use less power and require no additional cabling for smaller form factor systems

Cost Effective
mSATA modules are more cost effective than regular SSDs using less PCB and requiring no external drive housing


mSATA SSD uses a Mini-PCIe interface to connect directly to the board via a SATA data bus, leaving all PCIe lanes free

GIGABYTE 7 Series motherboards feature an exclusive EZ Setup utility that allows users to more easily implement the latest Intel technologies that can help speed up your PC. Within the EZ Setup utility users will find three EZ setup applications that will offer greatly simplified install procedures for these key Intel technologies: Intel Smart Response

Intel Rapid Start Intel Smart Connect

EZ Setup - 2

EZ Smart Response
Traditionally enabling Intel Smart Response meant an install and setup procedure that would involve several steps and could be quite time consuming and even daunting for less experienced users. EZ Smart Response allows users to setup and configure Intel Smart Response technology in one just one step.

Intel Rapid Start Technology

From Zero to go, in seconds
Fast Standby Power Savings Fast Resume

Snapshot of system including apps, open web pages quickly saved from DRAM to SSD

System suspended at near zero power

Snapshot restored from SSD to memory. Quick access to where you left off at 5 sec resume

Quickly return to where you left off with Your PC that goes from deep-sleep to fully-awake in a flash

Intel Smart Connect Technology

Stay current with automatic, no-wait updates to your email and social networks, even when your PC is asleep

Auto Sync with Cloud

No manual interaction required to synchronize with cloud services

Data Ready
Email, social media, and cloud apps always updated and available at power on

ON/OFF Charge USB Port

* ON/OFF Charge USB Port may vary by model.

Quick Charge for iPhone / iPad / iPod touch

*Due to certain mobile phone limitations, users may need to connect the mobile phone to their PC before the PC enters S4/S5 mode to enable a quick charge from non ON/OFF Charge USB ports. Charging results may vary by model.

GIGABYTE Helps You Quick Charge Your iPhone / iPad / iPod Touch
GIGABYTE On/Off Charge technology allows you to charge your iPhone, iPad and iPod Touch regardless of whether your PC is on, in standby mode or even off. A derivative of GIGABYTE's highly acclaimed 3x USB Power feature, On/Off Charge enables devices to draw more current from GIGABYTE motherboard USB ports than standard USB ports allow, so that charging from your PC can be as fast as with a charger.

3x USB Power Boost

GIGABYTE motherboards feature a 3x USB power boost, delivering greater compatibility and extra power for USB devices. GIGABYTEs unique USB power design is also able to efficiently regulate output over the full voltage range, which greatly enhances USB device compatibility. In addition, dedicated lower resistance fuses ensure lower voltage drops, and provide more stable and plentiful power delivery.

3x USB power is a maximum theoretical value. Actual performance may vary by system configuration.

On GIGABYTE 7 series motherboards each USB port has its own dedicated power fuse that prevents unwanted USB port failure, helping to safe guard your important data during transfer.
