Ensures Uninterrupted, Superior Performance for your PC at all Times
Severe weather conditions and voltage instability have always been the biggest nuisance values for PC users across India. Most parts of India face scorching heat during summer and consistent humidity during the monsoon season – especially in coastal areas. And surely it’s not good news for your rig if it has to regularly cope with power failures and fluctuations as well.
The users having the toughest time are the ones who want to push their PC hard, while also demanding complete stability. For these users, GIGABYTE’s Ultra Durable™ motherboards are the need of the hour, guaranteeing better PC protection from these harsh conditions, and helping prevent common malfunction threats that users may encounter on a day-to-day basis. GIGABYTE motherboards do all of this while simultaneously ensuring superior PC performance.
GIGABYTE Ultra Durable™ is a series of innovative, excusive technologies that originated with the aim of offering motherboards with high-quality, highly efficient components designed to ensure maximum durability, safety and longevity for today’s high performance motherboards. After all, the stability, reliability and durability of your motherboard solely depend on its quality of components.
With the launch of the first Ultra Durable™ motherboard in 2006, GIGABYTE has revolutionized the motherboard industry by making quality the number one focus in its motherboard design.
Commenting on GIGABYTE’s Ultra Durable™ technologies, Sunil Grewal, Director, GIGABYTE Technology (India) Pvt. Ltd., said, “The average Indian PC user is faced with a range of everyday threats, including humidity, moisture, electro-static discharge, sudden power loss and high operating temperature. On top of these, they also need to get the best performance from their PC. Under these circumstances, our Ultra Durable™ technology series can go a long way in ensuring an unhindered, safer, and better quality PC usage experience for them.”
Your Key Benefits Using GIGABYTE Ultra Durable™ Motherboards
Ensure Utmost Power Management under the Hardest Loads
GIGABYTE’s exclusive 2X Copper PCBs design offers ample power trace paths between components to manage larger than normal power loads, and to take away heat from the crucial CPU power release area. This guarantees the motherboard is able to handle the augmented power loading that is essential when overclocking.
Protect your PC and Components from Humidity
The GIGABYTE Ultra Durable™ employs an innovative Glass Fabric PCB technology that repels moisture caused by humid and damp conditions. This technology uses a new PCB material which reduces the amount of space between the fiber weave, making it much more difficult for moisture to penetrate, compared to traditional motherboard PCBs. This ensures a much better protection from short circuits and system malfunctions, caused by humidity. This unique kind of PCB process actually helps protect the motherboard from moisture at the PCB level, with improvements to how the actual PCB structure is manufactured.
Benefit from Absolute CPU Socket Longevity and Reliability
To ensure this longevity, GIGABYTE offers enhanced gold content in the CPU socket, memory DIMMs, and PCI-E slots. While the standard gold plating is five microns, GIGABYTE 9 Series and upward motherboards, (as also some motherboard models of the GIGABYTE 8 Series) come upgraded with 15 microns. In its X99 Series, GIGABYTE offers 30-micron gold plating that is six times the standard.
Low ESR Even During the Highest CPU Loading
GIGABYTE motherboards come with the absolute best quality Solid Caps (Capacitors) that are capable of performing at the highest efficiency for extended periods, even in excessive performance configurations. Solid Caps are capable of ensuring low ESR (Equivalent Series Resistance), which basically means less power, because they are steadier and produce less heat than electrolytic capacitors.
Along with All Solid Caps, GIGABYTE also uses Low RDS(on) MOSFETs, which are rated to work at higher temperatures to provide a longer lifespan. They reduce overall board temperatures, while making the motherboard more robust at higher temperatures.
GIGABYTE 9 series motherboards integrate 10K Durable Black™ Solid Caps that are rated to perform at maximum efficiency for a guaranteed minimum of 10K hours.
Your Guard against Power Failures, Surge
Sudden power outages are a common occurrence in many regions across India, and even in a few major cities. GIGABYTE Ultra Durable™ motherboards are well-equipped to ensure that you won’t be dealing with a fatal malfunction. These motherboards use the patented DualBIOS™ (UEFI) Design to provide fail safe protection for the BIOS on your motherboard, automatically refreshing your BIOS from a back-up version in the case of a critical power outage.
The GIGABYTE Ultra Durable™ motherboards also feature special anti-surge ICs that protect your motherboard and your PC, from any possible surge in power delivery, ensuring that your PC gets the better of any kind of irregular and inconsistent power delivery.
Shield your System from High Electrostatic Discharges
The GIGABYTE Ultra Durable™ motherboards are equipped to provide advanced ESD (electrostatic discharge) protection for both your Ethernet LAN and USB ports, both common sources of ESD-related failures. Each LAN and USB port is paired with a dedicated protection filter that can protect your system not only from common electrical surges, but also from direct lightning strikes.
