2-WAY CROSSFIRE™ MULTI-GRAPHICS
Multi-graphics configuration offers better graphics performance for gaming enthusiasts who demand the highest frame rates without compromising on resolution.
HIGH SPEED GIGABIT LAN WITH AUTOMATIC BANDWIDTH ALLOCATION
Realtek 8118 LAN is a high performance and friendly network chip for gaming players with automatic bandwidth allocation to ensure the highest network priority of the game or application. It can provide users the most comprehensive features and the fastest and smoothest Internet experience.
PRE-INSTALLED I/O SHIELD
With an integrated I/O shield, building an GIGABYTE Ultra Durable PC is even easier.
SMART FAN 5
With Smart Fan 5 users can ensure that their gaming PC can maintain its performance while staying cool. Smart Fan 5 allows users to interchange their fan headers to reflect different thermal sensors at different locations on the motherboard. Not only that, with Smart Fan 5 more hybrid fan headers that support both PWM and Voltage mode fans have been introduced to make the motherboard more liquid cooling friendly. Achieve fan silence. With Fan Stop, map any fan to stop completely when temperatures drop below a specified threshold. Which fan stops, based on readings from which sensor, and at what temperature—all of it can be customized to your liking. With Smart Fan 5 choose from different modes, Quiet to Full Speed, to match your system usage preferences. For each fan or pump, you can use the intuitive fan curve to define trigger thresholds and corresponding fan speeds.
RGB FUSION 2.0
With this GIGABYTE motherboard, RGB Fusion 2.0 is even better. It offers addressable LEDs and lets you control onboard RGB and external RGB / addressable LED light strips for your PC. Filled with various colours and modes, RGB Fusion 2.0 on Z490 Series motherboards are now upgraded with addressable LED support. With LED strips, you can experience more patterns, styles, and illuminations. Utilise support for either 5v or 12v addressable LED strips and up to 300 LED lights.
HIGH-END AUDIO CAPACITORS
GIGABYTE motherboards use high-end audio capacitors. These high quality capacitors help deliver high resolution and high fidelity audio and offer the most realistic sound effects for gamers.
AUDIO NOISE GUARD
The audio noise guard essentially separates the board’s sensitive analog audio components from the potential noise pollution at the PCB level.
ULTRA DURABLE™ PCIE ARMOR
The innovative one piece stainless steel shielding design from GIGABYTE reinforces the PCIe connectors to provide the extra strength required to support heavy graphics cards.
With GIGABYTE Q-Flash Plus, you don’t need to install the CPU, memory and graphics card nor enter the BIOS menu to flash the BIOS. Just download and save a new BIOS file (rename to gigabyte.bin) on the USB flash drive, then press the dedicated Q-Flash Plus button and you’re good to go!
The BIOS is essential for users during initial setup to allow for the most optimal settings. With a new GUI and easier to use functionalities, GIGABYTE has been able to reinvent the BIOS to give users a better experience while setting up their new system.
