Gigabyte’s X99 series of motherboards is built for high-octane gaming and maximum efficiency. With support for the latest Intel Core i7 Processors and Turbo Boost Max Technology, it allows you to push your PC to the brink. It’s also compatible with DDR4 XMP profiles up to 3333 MHz, which actually sync the memory modules with the CPU for better performance. The X99 series uses an all-digital CPU power design with 4th-gen digital PWM controllers from International Rectifier and 3rd-gen controllers from PowlRstage—delivering precise power to the most hungry components. Plus, Isense technology offers more accurate current sensing to evenly distribute thermal loading between the PowIRstage ICs, thus preventing overheating.
As opposed to other MOSFET layouts that use a multi-chip, side-by-side arrangement of the high and low side MOSFETs and driver ICs, the GA-X99-UD5 uses a single package design, which takes up less space and creates less electrical leakage. On top of that, it features a unique PCI Express design which harnesses the power of all 40 lanes from the CPU in both the 4-way and 3-way graphics configurations—resulting in 25-percent more bandwidth up to 320 GB/s.
This Gigabyte motherboard features Dual M.2 technology with onboard Wi-Fi and Bluetooth 4.0, delivering up to 10 Gb/s data transfer speeds, which is notably faster storage performance than current mSATA and SATA Revision 3 devices. With regards to build quality, it’s second to none. With server-level Cooper Bussmann chokes, high-quality solid-state capacitors with a 10,000-hour lifespan, and 30-micron-thick gold plating, it’s built for the long haul. Pair that with programmable LED lighting and you’ve got a rig that looks as good as it performs.
As for audio, the Gigabyte GA-X99-UD5 excels. With the Realtek ALC1150, a multi-channel high-definition audio codec, it gives users an exceptional audio experience up to 115dB SNR. The right and left audio channel PCB layers are independent of one another, which creates less crosstalk for maximum clarity. The board also supports 7.1-channel sound playback.
