GIGABYTE Introduces the H81.AMP-UP Motherboard

GIGABYTE today announced the latest addition to its 8 series motherboards, the GIGABYTE H81.AMP-UP.

Supporting the latest 4th generation Intel Core processors, the GIGABYTE H81.AMP-UP motherboard boasts advanced audio features inclusding an upgradable onboard OP-Amp, exclusive USB DAC-UP which provides noise-less USB power for digital-to-analog converters, switches to boost overall gain levels, high-end Nichicon capacitors and more.

GIGABYTE motherboards are the first to feature an onboard operational amplifier (OP-Amp). OP-Amps are commonly found in high-end audio equipment. The motherboard's OP-Amp is mounted on a socket which allows users to physically switch out and try different OP-Amps which offer distinct properties that make the audio clearer, punchier and more life-like. Additional OP-Amps can be purchased separately to further expand audio capabilities.

To optimize the audio experience provided by the onboard OP-Amp, the GIGABYTE H81.AMP-UP also features Gain Boost with onboard switches to select between 2.5x and 6x amplification modes depending on output device. Most OP-Amps are capable of providing a high-gain audio output that is ideal for high-end headphones and speakers that have higher impedance headroom.

Featuring a gold plated USB 2.0 port, GIGABYTE USB DAC-UP provides noise-free power delivery to Digital-to-Analog Converters. DACs can be sensitive to fluctuations in power from other USB ports, which is why GIGABYTE USB DAC-UP takes advantage of an isolated power source that minimizes potential fluctuations.

GIGABYTE USB DAC-UP also allows the port to be configured in BIOS for enthusiast system configurations which do not require USB power to the DAC. This makes it suitable for high-end audio enthusiasts building extreme fidelity audio systems.

To help protect and insulate the the Realtek ALC898 audio processor and onboard amplifiers from electrostatic interference (ESD), the GIGABYTE H81.AMP-UP motherboard features an audio noise guard that essentially separates the board's sensitive analog audio components from potential ESD pollution at the PCB level. LED trace path lighting illuminates to show the separation of the PCB layers.

The motherboard uses the highest quality Nichicon audio capacitors at each channel layout.

GIGABYTE motherboards also feature GIGABYTE DualBIOS, a technology that protects the BIOS. GIGABYTE DualBIOS means that your motherboard has both a 'Main BIOS' and a 'Backup BIOS', protecting users from BIOS failure due to virus attack, hardware malfunction, improper OC settings or power failure during the update process.

Electrostatic discharge (ESD) protection is avaialble for both your Ethernet LAN and USB ports, both common sources of ESD-related failures. Each LAN and USB port is paired with a dedicated protection filter that can withstand high electrostatic discharges.

The motherboard also features an onboard USB 3.0 host controller that provides an additional four USB 3.0 ports. Together with USB 3.0 ports provided by the Intel H81 chipset, users can enjoy SuperSpeed connectivity on a total of six USB 3.0 ports.

The integrated Intel HD Graphics via HDMI or DisplayPort ensures support for 4K content.
