he GA-Z97X-Gaming GT ATX Motherboard from Gigabyte serves as the foundation for creating your own custom desktop computer for gaming, work, as well as general use. Running advanced 3D games requires multiple graphic cards connected together to allow higher frame rates without compromising resolution, which is why this motherboard offers 2-, 3-, or 4-Way CrossFire or SLI multi-graphics technology. Some of the hardware needed for building your own system is included on the motherboard. For instance, the G1 Audio features a combination of technologies which can provide crisp sounds for music and realistic sound effects for gaming. To provide lag-free gameplay or stream videos over a network, the Killer E2201 LAN chip offers better performance when compared to standard Ethernet controllers.
This Gigabyte Gaming GT motherboard features an LGA1150 socket that accepts a 4th or 5th generation Intel processor. You may add up to 32GB of RAM across 4 memory slots. This motherboard offers eight SATA III 6 Gb/s connectors for adding optical and storage drives. Installing multiple storage drives can in turn allow for different RAID configurations. These configurations can be set so the drives provide the best transfer speed, the greatest data protection, or both. Optimize system-loading times by connecting an SSD to the SATA Express. Native 4K support is available via HDMI or DisplayPort when using an Intel CPU chip with an integrated Intel graphics processor. This GPU also supports up to three displays at the same time. For connecting to other peripherals, eight USB ports are available. Included with the Z97X motherboard are a driver disk, SATA cables, SLI bridge connectors, a CrossFire bridge connector, and a I/O shield.
Gigabyte AMP-UP Audio Technology
The exclusive Gigabyte AMP-UP audio technology provides realistic sound effects while gaming and crisp sounds when you listen to your favorite music and movies.
Gigabyte's Gaming GT motherboard features an onboard OP-AMP socket, allowing you to swap out the motherboard's onboard operational amplifier and choose an OP-AMP based on your listening preferences. Choosing a different amplifier improves audio dynamics and overall sound quality. The installed TI Burr Brown OPA2134 allows you to select either standard 2.5x or high-amplification 6x mode for high impedance speakers and headphones.
Realtek ALC1150 HD Audio
The ALC1150 is a multi-channel High Definition Audio Codec that delivers up to 115 dB SNR. It 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 integrated stereo ADCs can record at 104 dB SNR and can support a microphone array with Acoustic Echo Cancellation, Beam Forming, and Noise Suppression technologies.
Additional Sound Blaster X-Fi MB3
This motherboard includes the Sound Blaster X-Fi MB3 software suite, included within this suite are the SBX Pro Studio and Creative Alchemy, which are designed to provide a fuller audio experience. SBX Pro Studio suite offers audio realism by enhancing the sounds so you can clearly hear explosions, surround sound effects and more. Creative Alchemy restores EAX effects and 3D surround audio for older DirectSound 3D games running on Windows 7 and above.
High-End Audio Capacitors
Japanese-branded Nichicon capacitors offer expanded high-resolution audio to create realistic sound effects for gamers.
Gold-Plated Audio Hardware
Gold-plated audio and HDMI connectors offer improved connectivity and durability compared to other metals. Gold has better signal conductivity and will not tarnish over extended periods of use. The audio controller is also shielded by a gold-plated cover which eliminates electrostatic interference.
Dual DAC-UP USB Ports
The two USB 2.0 DAC-UP ports supply clean noise-free power delivery to your Digital-to-Analog Converter, which can be sensitive to fluctuations in power from the other USB ports. These ports take advantage of an isolated power source that minimizes potential fluctuations and ensures the best audio experience possible.
Dedicated Audio Hardware Zone
Separate PCB Layers
By placing the right and left audio channels on separate PCB layers, Gigabyte Gaming GT motherboards are able to eliminate channel crosstalk and help maintain the best audio quality.
Killer E2200 Network
Gigabyte Gaming GT motherboards feature the Killer E2200 from Qualcomm Atheros, an adaptive gigabit Ethernet controller that offers smoother online gaming and online media performance compared to standard solutions.
Supports either 4-Way SLI or CrossFire action, which delivers faster graphics performance for gaming enthusiasts who demand the highest frame rates without compromising on resolution.
SATA Express Connector
The onboard SATA Express connector provides data transfer rates up to 10 Gb/s, which is considerably higher than SATA Revision 3 that only transfers at 6 Gb/s. This prevents bottlenecking when using faster NAND flash technologies in 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.
Gigabyte App Center Including EasyTune and Cloud Station Utilities
Access Gigabyte apps via the APP Center, which can help you get the most of your Gigabyte motherboard. Using a simple, unified user interface, the Gigabyte APP Center allows you to launch all Gigabyte apps installed on your system.
4K HD HDMI Support
This motherboard provides native 4K support with an integrated Intel HD Graphics via an HDMI port. This High-Definition Multimedia Interface provides up to 5 Gb/s of bandwidth for transmitting video and 8-channels of audio all through a single cable. Capable of transmitting uncompressed digital video and audio, HDMI ensures rendering of digital content up to 1080p without the quality losses associated with analog interfaces and their digital-to-analog conversion. In addition, HDMI is compatible with High-bandwidth Digital Content Protection, allowing the playback of Blu-ray/HD DVD and other protected media content.
Gigabyte OPT Fan Support
An additional CPU fan pin header can be used to connect a water pump and configured for continuous full speed operation. The OPT Fan is also useful for high performance coolers employing two fans.
5x 15μ Gold-Plated CPU Socket Design
The CPU socket is gold-plated to help prevent corroded pins and bad contacts when used longer than an average workday. In turn, gold-plating provides added reliability and longevity.
Gigabyte Game Controller allows you to define your own hotkeys and change the mouse sensitivity, helping you make the most out of your keyboard and mouse in games.
