This motherboard of the new GIGABYTE Ultra Durable 4 Classic Edition features protection against moisture, electrostatic discharge, power failure, and high temperature. This is the most reliable model designed for PCs busy with common activities or gaming.
The motherboard is equipped with the so-called "black socket" or the AM3+ socket which allows equipping with both the high-performance 32nm AMD FX CPU series built on the Bulldozer architecture and the AM3 backward compatibility based on the Phenom II and Athlon II processors. The black socket delivers a more efficient power supply and improved chassis mounting. Therefore, the board offers an excellent platform for building a powerful gaming system that can take two AMD CrossFireX graphics cards. The throughput of two PCI Express x16s is excellent, so the performance potential of your graphics accelerators will not be hampered.
Demanding users will take advantage of the ability to overclock memory modules up to 2000MHz. Everyone will surely enjoy 3x USB Power Boost on USB 3.0 ports for more efficient power supply and 6 SATA III connectors. GIGABYTE On/Off Charge technology lets you charge your iPhone, iPad, and iPod Touch regardless of whether your computer is on. EasyTune6 enables easy setting, management, and monitoring of installed hardware to achieve maximum performance.
