Gigabyte Z97MX overview

  • 1Description

The G1 GA-Z97MX-Gaming 5 MicroATX Motherboard from Gigabyte supports 4th and 5th Generation Intel Core processors and incorporates AMP-UP Audio Technology, which provides a high level of onboard audio capabilities. With AMP-UP Audio, gamers and audiophiles can get crisp, realistic sound effects while gaming and when listening to their favorite music and movies. The motherboard utilizes high-end Nichicon audio capacitors that deliver high-quality sound resolution and sound expansion to create realistic sound effects for professional gamers.

The ALC1150 is a high-performance multi-channel High Definition Audio Codec that delivers immersive sound with up to 115dB SNR, ensuring users get high audio quality from their PC. It provides ten DAC channels that simultaneously support 7.1-channel sound playback, plus two channels of independent stereo sound output (multiple streaming) through the front panel stereo outputs. The included Sound Blaster X-Fi MB3 software suite offers premium audio quality, effects, and features for gamers. The board comes with 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 ALC1150 is a high-performance multi-channel High Definition Audio Codec that delivers a remarkable audio listening experience with up to 115dB SNR, ensuring users get high 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.
Sound Blaster X-Fi MB3 software suite is a powerful audio platform offering premium audio quality, effects and features for gamers. It features SBX Pro Studio suite of technologies, which is designed to give you an immersive audio experience.
Separation on the PCB layer protects the board's sensitive analog audio components. Separate analog and digital ground to protect against Electromagnetic Interference (EMI). LED trace path lighting illuminates to show the separation of the PCB layers.
USB DAC-UP provides clean, noise-free power delivery to your Digital-to-Analog Converter. It takes advantage of an isolated power source and minimizes potential fluctuations and ensures an immersive audio experience.
Gold-plated audio and HDMI connectors offer improved connectivity and long lasting durability. Gold has remarkable 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.
The Killer E2200 from Qualcomm Atheros is a high-performance, adaptive gigabit Ethernet controller that offers better online gaming and online media performance compared to standard solutions.
Flexible graphics capabilities supported for either CrossFire or SLI action, delivering detailed graphics performance for gaming enthusiasts who demand high frame rates without compromising on resolution.
Onboard 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.
Motherboard comes equipped with an onboard M.2 slot, providing users PCI-Express connectivity for SSD devices. Delivering up to 10Gb/s data transfer speeds, M.2 offers users considerably faster storage performance than mSATA and even SATA Revision 3 (6Gb/s) storage devices.
APP Center gives you easy access to wealth of GIGABYTE apps that help you get the most from your motherboard. Using a simple, unified user interface, APP Center allows you to launch all GIGABYTE apps installed on your system.
Comes equipped with a gold-plated CPU socket that offers reliability and longevity for the CPU socket overtime, without having any concerns about corroded pins and bad contacts
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
