The Media Series DH77DF Intel Desktop Board from Intel supports the 2nd generation, the 3rd generation Intel Core i7, Intel Core i5 processors and other Intel processors in the LGA1155 package. The board features DVI-I, HDMI and DisplayPort connectors. It supports dual independent display for processors with Intel HD Graphics. Powered by the Intel Core processors, DH77DF delivers a superb visual performance for sharper images, richer color and life-like audio and video.
Desktop Board DH77DF also offers premium audio codec with 110dB DAC signal to noise ratio for a high definition audio experience and a PCIe Mini Card connector with support for mSATA Solid-State Drive for Intel Smart Response Technology.
Supports the 2nd and 3rd Generation Intel Core Processors in the LGA1155 Package
The Desktop Board DH77DF is based on the Intel H77 Express Chipset and supports the 2nd and 3rd generation Intel Core processors, including Intel Core i7 and Intel Core i5 processors, as well as other Intel processors in the LGA1155 package. Intel Core processors feature optimized Intel Turbo Boost Technology and enhanced Intel Hyper-Threading Technology, which provide smarter performance and a seamless visual experience.
Dual Independent Display for Processors with Intel HD Graphics
The Desktop Board DH77DF is equipped with DisplayPort, HDMI and DVI-I connectors. It supports flexible dual independent display for processors with Intel HD Graphics. It also supports Intel HD Graphics with frequency tuning to maximize visual performance.
The Desktop Board offers premium features such as dual-channel DDR3 160033 MHz memory with two connectors (16 GB max), Intel Rapid Storage Technology for RAID 0, 1, 5 and 10, Intel Smart Response Technology, Intel High Definition Audio* with 7.1 surround sound and multi-streaming capability, as well as an integrated Intel PRO 10/100/1000 Network Connection in a low-power design. The Desktop Board is designed with a wide range of 1.2 V to 1.8 V memory voltage control to maximize memory DIMM compatibility. Two onboard SATA 3.0 ports promise a new level of performance with 6 Gbps link speed between storage devices and the host. Two back panel SuperSpeed USB 3.0 ports and one USB 3.0 onboard header for two front-panel ports address the needs of higher performance connections between the PC and increasingly sophisticated peripherals by offering a higher transfer rate of 5 Gbps. One PCIe Mini Card connector is provided with support for mSATA Solid-State Drive for Intel Smart Response Technology.
* System resources and hardware require physical memory address locations that can reduce available addressable system memory. This could result in a reduction of as much as 1 GB or more of physical addressable memory being available to the operating system and applications, depending on the system configuration and operating system.
Intel Rapid Storage Technology
The Desktop Board DH77DF features Intel Rapid Storage Technology and supports RAID 0, 1, 5 and 10. Rapid Storage Technology provides new levels of protection, performance and expandability for desktop platforms. Whether using one or multiple hard drives, users can take dual advantage of enhanced performance and lower power consumption. When using more than one drive, users have additional protection against data loss in the event of a hard drive failure.
Intel Smart Response Technology
Smart Response Technology provides a single drive volume that combines the high-performance benefits of Solid-State Drives with large storage capacities of traditional hard drives to dramatically increase PC responsiveness and enable faster boot time*.
* Responsive performance measurements are performed using the Intel Core processor, Intel Z68 Express Chipset, Intel Solid-State Drive and Intel Rapid Storage Technology driver.
