    Features

    3D Power Meanwhile Gigabyte also makes use of digital power designs on their motherboards. What it does is that it controls the flow of power to both CPU and memory. Gigabyte in this case promises maximum stability.
       
    3D BIOS With their X79 motherboards Gigabyte introduced their interpretation of a UEFI-BIOS. With the Z77 boards you get the same 3D BIOS. Using a new Gigabyte board you can choose from a 3D Mode or the Advanced Mode. In 3D Mode one can see a picture of the board in BIOS. If you hover over the different areas you can select them and afterwards change the related settings. On the other hand there is the more standard advanced mode which come with a well-known tab based user interface.
       
    PCI Epxress 3.0 The Z77X-UD5H already has PCI-Express 3.0 Support onboard. Therefore this board is ready for upcoming GPU generations that need even more bandwidth.
       
    Bluetooth 4.0 and WiFi The motherboard also includes an exclusive PCIe expansion card that offers support for the latest Bluetooth 4.0 and IEEE 802.11 a/b/g/n Wi-Fi connectivity. The Bluetooth 4.0 standard includes Smart Ready technology that is debuting on mobile devices including the Apple iPhone 4s. This means that transferring important content from your smart phone or tablet is easier and faster than ever.
