GIGABYTE today launched its latest Ultra Durable 4 Classic technology, debuting on the Intel H61 Express Chipset motherboards.
GIGABYTE Ultra Durable 4 Classic is a range of technologies that safe-guard PCs from common everyday threats, including humidity and moisture, electro-static discharge, sudden power loss and high operating temperatures.
The new motherboards have been designed to make sure that humidity is never an issue, incorporating a new Glass Fabric PCB technology that repels moisture caused by humid and damp conditions. Using a new kind of PCB material which reduces the amount of space between the fiber weave, Glass Fiber PCB technology makes it more difficult for moisture to penetrate compared to traditional motherboard PCBs.
All GIGABYTE Ultra Durable 4 Classic motherboards use high quality IC microchips that are rated with higher electro-static discharge (ESD) resistance than traditional IC implementations. The motherboards use ICs with up to 3 times the ESD resistance levels compared to traditional ICs.
If your home experiences a sudden power outage for any reason, GIGABYTE Ultra Durable 4 Classic motherboards are equipped to ensure that you won't be dealing with a fatal malfunction. All GIGABYTE Ultra Durable 4 Classic motherboards use patented DualBIOS technology to provide fail safe protection for the BIOS on your motherboard, automatically refreshing your BIOS from a back up version in the case of a critical power outage. The new motherboards also feature special anti-surge ICs that protect your motherboard, and your PC, from any surge in power delivery that may occur.
Specially selected components make your PC capable of higher temperatures in more extreme conditions, while at the same time preventing your PC from overheating. Using all solid capacitors for the GIGABYTE Ultra Durable 4 Classic range both reduces overall board temperatures while, making the motherboard more robust at higher temperatures. The choice of Lower RDS(on) MOSFETs also helps to reduce operating temperatures significantly compared to traditional MOSFET solutions.
GIGABYTE Ultra Durable 4 motherboards are currently available for GIGABYTE H61 platform motherboards. The Intel H61 Express Chipset supports 2nd generation 'Sandy Bridge' Intel Core CPUs, and deliver Intel's integrated graphics capabilities.
All GIGABYTE Ultra Durable 4 Classic motherboards are equipped with GIGABYTE?s exclusive TouchBIOS technology, which offers a new way for users to interact with their PC BIOS. The motherboards also support forthcoming technologies including next generation Intel 22nm processors, and PCI Express Gen. 3 expansion cards.
