Gigabyte X79 series motherboards are designed to unite unrivalled desktop PC
performance with a new level of flexibility and hardware control. Based on the
latest Intel® X79 Express Chipset, supporting the new LGA 2011 Intel® Core™ i7
processors, Gigabyte X79 series motherboards bring DIY builders to a new area of
Gigabyte 3D Power
Gigabyte X79 series motherboards are the first to take advantage of the
exclusive Gigabyte 3D Power, an all new hardware and software-based Digital
Power Engine for both the PWM and Memory that delivers unprecedented power
All New Digital Power Control for the CPU and Memory
Utilizing a brand new Digital PWM controller, Gigabyte's 3D Power features
precise Auto Voltage Compensation to deliver a steady flow of power to the CPU
and memory no matter the loading. This all new, all digital power system
provides enthusiast users with exceptional control over the overclocking
potential of their Gigabyte X79 motherboard.
Gigabyte is the first in the industry to utilize digital memory controllers
for not only the Memory, but VTT and VSA, for real-time monitoring and
adjusting. Digital memory control allows users to monitor and record DDR power
and current in real-time while gaming, overclocking or at idle. Users can also
set OVP (Over Voltage Protection) to safeguard your memory, adjust memory
Load-line Calibration to fix memory vdrooping for a quicker response time and
adjust memory PWM frequency on-the-fly.
Gigabyte 3D Power Utility
Users can now enjoy a fully interactive 3D utility that facilitates
adjustment of the 3 dimensions that control the power delivery to your CPU and
Memory: Voltage, Phase and Frequency. These parameters are crucial to how the
digital PWM supplies power to critical areas of the motherboard and can help
users quickly obtain the highest, most stable overclock.
3D Power: Voltage Control
Voltage parameters can be modified within 3D Power, including load line
calibration the of CPU. By adjusting load line calibration, Vdrooping can be
avoided, maintaining optimal voltages levels despite increasing current levels.
OVP (over voltage protection) can also be adjusted to change default protection
range of the CPU, memory controller, VTT and system memory.
3D Power: Phase Control
Users can calibrate OCP (Over Current Protection) for the CPU, integrated
memory controller and system memory power levels. This allows the Phase control
to deliver even more power to the system when needed.
3D Power: Frequency Control
Gigabyte's digital PWM allows for adjustable frequency control via the
International Rectifier (IR3567) PWM controller. 3D Power frequency control
allows users to change the PWM controller frequency so that the CPU VRM can
adjust power delivery speeds more quickly. Users can also adjust the PWM
spectrum or maximum and minimum overall frequencies.
Gigabyte 3D BIOS
The revolutionary Gigabyte 3D BIOS application is based on our new Gigabyte
UEFI DualBIOS™ technology and is available to consumers in two new exclusive
modes of interaction never before seen in a BIOS environment. Gigabyte has
re-drawn the traditional BIOS experience providing mainstream and enthusiast
users with a choice of unique and powerful graphical interfaces.
UEFI DualBIOS™ Technology
At the heart of this exciting 3D BIOS technology is a pair of 8MB physical
BIOS ROMs containing Gigabyte's exclusive in-house designed UEFI BIOS
technology. With a superior graphical interface capable of 32-bit color imaging
and fluid user-friendly mouse navigation, UEFI DualBIOS™ makes BIOS
configuration a new and exciting experience for novice and experienced users
alike. UEFI BIOS also brings native support for large hard drives on 64-bit
Designed to provide an extremely streamlined and user-friendly BIOS
environment, Gigabyte's exclusive 3D mode offers a fully interactive and
illustrative GUI that allows users to easily and intuitively make key
adjustments to the UEFI BIOS 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 provides a more comprehensive UEFI BIOS environment that is
designed specifically for overclockers and power users who want maximum control
over their PC's hardware. GIGABTYE's signature M.I.T. tuning technology can be
found alongside fully configurable parameters for GIGABTE's all new digital 3D
Power engine. In short, advanced mode combines the signature Gigabyte BIOS
expertise you’ve come to expect, wrapped a slick, new and optimized graphical
Improve protection mechanism
Because BIOS flashing is potentially risky, if you do not encounter problems
using the current version of BIOS, it is recommended that you not flash the
BIOS. To flash the BIOS, do it with caution. Inadequate BIOS flashing may result
in system malfunction.
