Intel DZ77GA-70K overview

  • 1Description

The DZ77GA-70K Extreme Series Desktop Board (Single Pack) from Intel is based on the Intel Z77 Express Chipset and is optimized for Intel K processors. It supports Smart Response technology, which dramatically increases system responsiveness while combining the performance benefits of an SSD with the storage capacity of a traditional HDD in a single drive volume.

The DZ77GA-70K Desktop Board features Intel Visual BIOS which offers a graphical interface and animated controls that allow you to configure settings faster and take full advantage of your Intel K processor. Intel Visual BIOS includes Intel Overclocking Assistant* which provides single-step overclocking boosts to quickly maximize your gaming advantage. It is a user-friendly feature that allows easy overclocking of core, graphics and memory. Intel Visual BIOS operates by your choice of touch screen, keys or mouse. All controls are literally at your fingertips, in a format you can visualize.

Advanced power and overclocking** capabilities of the DZ77GA-70K Desktop Board coupled with dramatic responsiveness improvements delivered by the Intel Smart Response technology provide the board of choice for gamers and media creation enthusiasts alike. Intel Smart Response technology provides SSD-like performance and brings up to 50% improvement in responsiveness as compared to an HDD-only system. The desktop board also comes with other new responsiveness technologies such as Intel Rapid Start technology***, which allows you to quickly resume the system from sleep and standby modes.

Note: >*OC Assistant software & BIOS capability for this feature may be available shortly after launch of product.
**Altering clock frequency or voltage may reduce system stability & life of system & processor, cause the processor & other components to fail, reduce system performance, cause other damage & affect system data integrity.
***BIOS update may be required to support Rapid Start technology. This feature may not be available at initial launch of product.
