Gigabyte Z170 overview

  • 1Description

The Gigabyte GA-Z170X-UD5 ATX Motherboard lets you to build a Windows system using Intel's 6th-generation of Skylake processors and up to 64GB of DDR4 RAM. It comes with an LGA1151 socket and four DIMM slots, which can support overclocked memory up to 3466 MHz. To deliver data quickly to your system, it provides two 32 Gb/s PCIe x4 M.2 slots and allows you to configure your M.2 SSDs into a RAID array. It is equipped with three SATA Express and eight SATA connectors for utilizing your existing drives. For external devices, two USB 3.1 ports are built into the back panel to quickly transfer data up to 10 Gb/s. One of these ports is built using a Type-C form factor, which has a reversible design and is smaller than the other Type-A USB 3.1 port.

This motherboard sports three PCIe 3.0 x16 slots that support multiple graphics cards linked via 2-way SLI or 2-way/3-way CrossFire. Additionally, four PCIe 3.0 x1 slots are available. With integrated Intel HD graphics and the motherboard's HDMI port, you can view 4K visuals on your 4K-compatible display. DisplayPort and DVI-D displays can also connect with this motherboard to provide you with a three-monitor setup. To complete the multimedia experience, Realtek ALC1150 outputs high quality audio through the motherboard's optical S/PDIF Out connector and five audio jacks.

Gigabyte has outfitted this motherboard with two Intel Gigabit LAN controllers, which can be linked to offer your system networking performance and redundancy. Other notable connections include three USB 3.0 and two USB 2.0 ports as well as a PS/2 keyboard/mouse combo port. Furthermore, this motherboard includes apps that overclock your components and communicate with mobile devices.

Intel USB 3.1 Controller
This Intel controller utilizes two PCI Express 3.0 lanes to provide a data transfer rate of 10 Gb/s for the USB 3.1 ports, which are twice as fast as USB 3.0. One of these USB 3.1 ports features a small, reversible type-C design that allows you connect the very first time. You can also purchase a separately sold type-C to DisplayPort 1.2 cable. In addition, these ports are backwards compatible with existing USB devices.
Turbo B-Clock
The onboard TURBO B-Clock Tuning IC enables you to change the BCLK frequency from 90 to 500 MHz.
Gigabyte App Center Including EasyTune and Cloud Station Utilities
Access Gigabyte apps via the APP Center, which can help you get the most of your Gigabyte motherboard. Using a simple, unified user interface, Gigabyte APP Center allows you to launch all Gigabyte apps installed on your system.

EasyTune app - is a simple and easy-to-use interface that allows you to fine-tune the system's settings or adjust system and memory clocks and voltages in a Windows environment. With Smart Quick Boost, one click is all it takes to automatically overclock your system, giving an added performance boost when you need it the most.

Gigabyte Cloud Station - is composed of several unique apps, which allows your smart phone/tablet device to communicate, share resources, and control desktop PCs via wireless connection.
Dual PCIe Gen3 x4 M.2
This motherboard comes with two M.2 slots that run on the PCI Express lanes, which allow each slot to transfer data at rate of 32 Gb/s. You can also configure your drives connected via M.2 in a RAID array.
SATA Express
SATA Express combines the benefits of PCI-Express and SATA to provide much higher bandwidth, featuring data transfer rates of up to 16 Gb/s.
Multiple Graphics Cards Support
You can install multiple graphics cards linked via 2-Way SLI or 3-Way CrossFire.
Dual Intel GbE LAN with cFosSpeed
The two Intel Gigabit LAN controllers with cFosSpeed deliver better network responsiveness in crowded LAN environments and allows optimization and improved network performance for specific applications
Audio Design
The ALC1150 is a multi-channel High Definition Audio Codec that delivers up to 115 dB SNR, offering HD quality audio from your computer. This motherboard is built with audio capacitors that deliver sound resolution and sound expansion to create realistic sound effects.
Ambient LED
Gigabyte motherboards feature LED lighting for the audio guard path, providing a custom look to your system. Not only does the Audio Noise Guard protect the board's sensitive analog audio components, but its LEDs can also be programmed to beat at the rhythm of the music you are listening to or pulse at a soothing pace to enhance the environment of your game, movie, or music.
PCIe Metal Shielding
Gigabyte reinforces the PCIe connectors with a one-piece stainless steel shield that provides extra strength to support heavier graphics cards.
Black Solid Caps
Gigabyte motherboards use solid-state capacitors that are rated to perform at maximum efficiency for extended periods, even in extreme performance configurations. Not only do they provide ultra-low ESR no matter how high the CPU load, they also come in customized jet black.
Copper PCB Design
This motherboard uses twice the amount of copper for its power trace paths between the components. Using 2 oz of copper allows the paths to handle greater than normal power loads and removes heat from the critical CPU power delivery area.
15μ Gold-Plated CPU Socket Design
To provide reliability and longevity, the CPU socket has been gold-plated to help prevent corroded pins and bad contacts when used longer than an average workday.
Gigabyte DualBIOS (UEFI) Design
This motherboard offers a secondary BIOS when the primary BIOS fails due to a virus attack, hardware malfunction, incorrect OC settings, or power failure during the update process.
Heat Sink
Multiple head sinks are built into the motherboard to efficiently cool the key areas such as the PWM area and chipset.
4K HD HDMI Support
This motherboard provides native 4K support for integrated Intel HD Graphics via a HDMI port. This High-Definition Multimedia Interface provides up to 5 Gb/s of bandwidth for transmitting video and 8-channels of audio all through a single cable. Capable of transmitting uncompressed digital video and audio, HDMI ensures rendering of digital content up to 1080p without the quality losses associated with analog interfaces and their digital-to-analog conversion. In addition, HDMI is compatible with High-bandwidth Digital Content Protection, allowing the playback of Blu-ray/HD DVD and other protected media content.
