Gigabyte 990FX overview

  • 1Description

The Gigabyte GA-990FXA-UD3 R5 ATX Motherboard lets you build a desktop computer with an AMD FX, Phenom II, or Athlon II processor that utilizes an AM3+ socket. You can install up to 32GB of system memory in its four DDR3 DIMM slots and two dedicated graphics cards, linked via 2-way CrossFire or NVIDIA SLI. For long-term storage, it features 6 SATA III connectors for internal drives as well as two USB 3.0 and two eSATA ports for external backups.

Gigabyte has equipped this motherboard with Realtek ALC1150, which is a multi-channel HD audio codec that simultaneously supports 7.1-channel sound playback through its six audio jacks. Connecting to the network and Internet is accomplished with an integrated Realtek Gigabit LAN chip that reliably delivers high-speed data. Furthermore, Gigabyte has emphasized stability and durability by using solid-state capacitors, 2 ounces of copper on the PCB, and DualBIOS technology, which automatically recovers BIOS data when the main BIOS has crashed or failed.

Multi-GPU Support
This motherboard supports 2-Way CrossFire and 2-Way SLI technologies to deliver detailed graphics with fast frame rates.
Digital Power Engine
The Gigabyte Digital PWM controller array provides stable power to the processor. It also precisely distributes power to the motherboard's power hungry and energy sensitive components. This Digital Power system uses Precise Auto Voltage Compensation to make real-time adjustments and deliver a steady flow of power to your system, no matter the loading. With this system, you can better control the overclocking potential of the motherboard.
Realtek ALC1150 with Integrated Rear Audio Amplifier
The Realtek ALC1150 is a multi-channel HD Audio Codec that delivers a playback (DAC) quality of 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 support a microphone array with Acoustic Echo Cancellation, Beam Forming, and Noise Suppression technologies. The ALC1150 incorporates a Realtek proprietary converter technology to achieve a 104 dB SNR recording (ADC) quality.
High-End Audio Capacitors
Nippon Chemicon ARE series audio capacitors offer expanded high-resolution audio to create realistic sound effects for gamers.
Dedicated Audio Hardware Zone
  • Separation on the PCB layer protects the board's sensitive analog audio components
  • Each analog and digital component is grounded to help protect against electromagnetic interference
eSATA Ports
The two eSATA ports provide hot-plug functionality that allows easier data backup and content manipulation on external storage drives.
2x Copper PCB Design
The trace paths on the motherboard use twice the amount of copper to handle greater power loads and remove the heat from the CPU power delivery area.
Humidity Protection with Glass Fabric PCB
Glass Fabric Printed Circuit Board technology uses a material that reduces the amount of space between the fiber weave, making it much more difficult for moisture to penetrate compared to traditional motherboard PCBs. The benefit is added protection from short circuit and system malfunction caused by humid and damp conditions.
Solid Capacitors
This motherboard uses solid-state capacitors that are rated to perform for extended periods, even in extreme performance configurations.
Gigabyte UEFI DualBIOS
You can use the secondary BIOS when the primary BIOS fails due to a virus attack, hardware malfunction, incorrect OC setting, or power failure during the update process.
ESD Protection for USB and LAN
Each LAN and USB port is paired with a dedicated protection filter that can withstand high electrostatic discharges, protecting your system from electrical surges and even direct lighting strikes.
Power Failure Protection with Anti-Surge IC
The anti-surge ICs protect your motherboard and your PC from any surge in power delivery that may occur, helping to ensure that your PC is equipped to deal with any potentially irregular and inconsistent power delivery.
Heat Sink Design
The heat sink is designed to efficiently cool key areas of the motherboard including the PWM area and chipset (PCH). This helps maintain optimal thermal parameters of both areas when running aggressive and extreme configurations.
Fast Data Transfers
This motherboard is designed with Gigabyte technologies that offer a stable, high-speed platform for delivering fast data transfers. Featuring a USB 3.0 controller, this motherboard will allow you to take advantage of USB transfer rates of up to 5 Gbps, delivering 10x faster data transfers compared to USB 2.0. Utilizing the AMD SB950 chipset, this motherboard offers six SATA III ports, which transfer data to storage devices at a rate of up to 6 Gbps. It also supports RAID 0, 1, 5, 10. Furthermore, it has a unique hardware design with lower resistance fuses to help ensure lower voltage drops and provide a more stable, power delivery.
Dolby Home Theater Support
With Dolby Home Theater support, this motherboard delivers surround sound for music, movies, and games, using headphones or two to eight speakers.
On/Off Charge Technology
The USB ports on the motherboard allow you to charge your iPhone, iPad, and iPod Touch regardless of whether your PC is on, in standby mode or even off. Compared to standard USB ports, On/Off Charge technology enables devices to draw more current from these USB ports, which can be just as fast as with your charger.
