It is known that the final design will have the top-end motherboard from Gigabyte for the socket LGA1155 , we talk about the Gigabyte Z77X-UP7 . One of its strengths is the inclusion of a VRM design that has 32 power phases , with this we ensure a good potential in terms of overclocking is concerned.
In the last fair 2012 Computex , Gigabyte has already shown some data on the motherboard Gigabyte Z77X-UP7 , one of them and also very importantly, the addition of a 32-phase VRM power, which will delight lovers overclock. Other manufacturers such as Asus could also see the Asus Wolverine , with 40 power phases, but have not yet been returned to learn more about it.
The Gigabyte Z77X-UP7 be positioned as top model for the LGA1155 socket, so it is compatible with Intel Core Ivy Bridge and the third generation Sandy Bridge course. As you can see the final design of the motherboard is pretty good, as it combines a black colored PCB with orange details, such as PCI-Express slots, sockets for RAM and even in its cooling system.
Precisely the cooling system is something that was not known when the motherboard Gigabyte showed at Computex, as it was something they had in secret. Once the final design is ready, we can see a total of four heat sinks are connected by a heatpipe, covering the areas of the chipset and VRM.
As usual with Gigabyte uses what it calls Ultra Durable 5, so we can rest easy in their manufacture as we ensure that all components are of excellent quality. In fact, leading equipped MOSFETs are about 30 º C cooler than those commonly used, which is achieved by improved energy efficiency and enhanced stability.
As for specs, the Gigabyte Z77X-UP7 has a total of five PCI-Express 3.0 x16, so you can make settings MultiGPU SLI / CrossFireX smoothly. It also has two PCI-Express x1, mSATA port, audio jacks, support for Lucid Virtu technology, dual Ethernet, WiFi, Bluetooth 4.0, eSATA, six USB 3.0 ports, PS / 2, DVI video output, HDMI and D-Sub15.
The price is unknown for now but will soon finally reach the market, we expect to do so with a competitive price since the motherboard has a great pint.
