Description:

Genuine All Digital Power Design
Gigabyte X99 series motherboards use an all digital CPU power design from International Rectifier® which includes both 4th Generation digital PWM Controllers and industry-leading 3rd Generation PowIRstage® controllers. These 100% digital controllers offer incredible precision in delivering power to the motherboard’s most power-hungry and energy-sensitive components, allowing enthusiasts to get the absolute maximum performance from their new Intel® Core™ i7 Extreme Edition CPUs.

IR Digital PWM & IR PowIRstage® ICs
This new generation of IR® digital power controllers and PowIRstage® ICs feature Isense technology, which provide more precise current sensing accuracy. This helps evenly distribute the thermal loading between the PowIRstage® ICs, preventing the overheating of each individual PowIRstage®, resulting in longer lifespan and better reliability.

Server Level Chokes by Cooper Bussmann
Gigabyte X99 series motherboards feature Server Level Cooper Bussmann Chokes.
- Server level reliability
- High current capacity
- New design reduces heat created by power loss and provides efficient power delivery to CPU VRM area.

Long Lifespan Durable Black™ Solid Caps
Gigabyte X99 series motherboards integrate the absolute best quality solid state capacitors that are rated to perform at maximum efficiency for extended periods, even in extreme performance configurations. This provides peace of mind for end users who want to push their system hard, yet demand absolute reliability and stability, with ultra-low ESR no matter how high the CPU loading.

Extreme Multi-GPU Support
Flexible graphics capabilities supported for either CrossFire™ or SLI™ action, delivering the ultimate in graphics performance for gaming enthusiasts who demand the highest frame rates without compromising on resolution.
Dual M.2 Technology for SSD Drive and WIFI Card
Fast Data Transfer and Advanced WIFI Networking
Gigabyte motherboard featuring Dual M.2 technology provides users PCI-Express connectivity for SSD devices and for 11AC WIFI + Bluetooth 4.0 card. Delivering up to 10 Gb/s data transfer speeds, M.2 offers considerably faster storage performance than current mSATA and even SATA Revision 3 (6Gb/s) storage devices. Gigabyte’s stacked design optimises the PCB real-estate usage, allowing more components to be efficiently added without compromising any space.

Next Generation SATA Express Connector
Gigabyte X99 series motherboards feature an onboard SATA Express connector which provides performance far superior to that of current SATA technologies. SATA Express features data transfer rates of up to 10Gb/s, considerably higher than SATA Revision 3 (6Gb/s), which won’t bottleneck faster NAND flash technologies in cutting edge SSDs. SATA Express combines the benefits of PCI-Express and SATA to provide much higher bandwidth, allowing SATA Express based drives to perform at similar speeds as PCI-Express based drives.

Independent Right and Left Audio Channel PCB Layers
Locating the right and left audio channels on separate PCB layers, Gigabyte X99 series motherboards are able to eliminate channel crosstalk and maintain the best audio quality.

Realtek ALC1150 115dB SNR HD Audio with Built-in Rear Audio Amplifier
The Realtek ALC1150 is a high-performance multi-channel High Definition Audio Codec that delivers an exceptional audio listening experience with up to 115dB SNR, ensuring users get the best possible audio quality from their PC.
The ALC1150 provides ten DAC channels that simultaneously support 7.1-channel sound playback, plus 2 channels of independent stereo sound output (multiple streaming) through the front panel stereo outputs. Two stereo ADCs are integrated and can support a microphone array with Acoustic Echo Cancellation (AEC), Beam Forming (BF), and Noise Suppression (NS) technologies. The ALC1150 incorporates Realtek proprietary converter technology to achieve Front differential output 115dB Signal-to-Noise ratio (SNR) playback (DAC) quality and 104dB SNR recording (ADC) quality.

Killer Networking
Select Gigabyte X99 series motherboards feature the Killer™ E2200 from Qualcomm Atheros, a high-performance, adaptive gigabit Ethernet controller that offers better online gaming and online media performance compared to standard solutions. The Killer™ E2200 features Advanced Stream Detect technology, which identifies and prioritises all network traffic to ensure important applications that require high-speed connectivity are prioritised over less important traffic.

Intel® Core™ i7 Extreme Edition CPUs(Haswell-E)
Intel® Core™ i7 Extreme Edition Processors are Intel’s first 8 core desktop CPUs and the first to support DDR4 memory. These next generation 22nm CPUs delivers greater performance and energy efficiency as well as the industry's highest level of discrete graphics performance by sporting 40 PCIe Gen.3 lanes, which Gigabyte X99 motherboards are able to take full advantage of, delivering bandwidth totaling 320 Gb/s for the most demanding gamers or graphics intensive creation tasks such as video editing. On top of that, Intel® Core™ i7 Extreme Edition CPUs deliver 8 core (16 threaded) multitask processing, higher frequencies, as well as larger cache size.
Additionally, Gigabyte X99 users can draw even more performance out of their Extreme Edition CPUs, as they are fully unlocked for overclocking. With enhanced overclocking oriented options available on all Gigabyte X99 series motherboards, users will be able to take full advantage of all the performance potential of Intel Extreme Edition CPUs.
* CPU core count and PCIe bandwidth varies by CPU model.

4 Channel DDR4
The next generation of DRAM is here with DDR4. Featuring stock frequencies starting at 2133 MHz, DDR4 delivers up to 20% less energy consumption and twice as much density as the previous generation DDR3. DDR4 can help Gigabyte X99 users to load their programs faster, increase responsiveness of their system and help them to handle heavy data tasks in a flash. Gigabyte X99 motherboards provide 4 Channel DDR4 memory support across the entire range, bringing exceptionally fast memory access.
