Overview


Onboard mSATA for Intel® SLC SSDs and Smart Response Technology
ASINB0054OWTQU_photo_mSATA.jpg

GIGABYTE Z68 series motherboards are equipped with the much anticipated IntelR Smart Response Technology, allowing users to experience system performance similar to SSD only systems. IntelR Smart Response technology works by using intelligent block-based caching of frequently used applications to improve system performance and responsiveness.

GIGABYTE Z68 motherboards are equipped with the much anticipated IntelR Smart Response Technology, allowing users to experience system performance similar to SSD-only systems. IntelR Smart Response technology works by using intelligent block-based caching of frequently used applications to improve system performance and responsiveness. In fact, GIGABYTE Z68 motherboards with IntelR Smart Response Technology are able to outperform hybrid drive systems by more than 2X (PC Mark Vantage HDD test) and HDD-only systems by as much as 4X (PC Mark Vantage HDD test) and deliver a 60% performance improvement over HDD-only systems in PC Mark Vantage Suite.



GIGABYTE EZ Smart Response
ASINB0054OWTQU_photo_EZ.jpg

The GIGABYTE EZ Smart Response utility is a simple application that allows users to quickly and easily configure their system for Intel® Smart Response Technology. In the past, enabling Intel® Smart Response meant users needed to enter the BIOS in order to configure their system for RAID mode, which then required a complete reinstall of the operating system. Once that processes was complete, users then needed to install the Intel® Rapid Storage Utility as well as configure Intel's Smart Response Technology. GIGABYTE EZ Smart Response does all of this automatically, without users having to perform a complicated install process. This allows them to quickly and effortlessly enjoy a significant boost in system performance.


GIGABYTE Touch BIOSTM (Patent Pending)

An Innovative New Way to Modify BIOS Settings


Navigating through the BIOS to change system settings can be a daunting task for users not familiar with control "F" functions and mouse-less navigation. While some EFI BIOS try to address this with a mouse friendly environment, many implementations still lack a certain ease-of-use necessary for most people. With GIGABYTE Touch BIOSTM, GIGABYTE engineers have completely re-imagined how users can interact with their BIOS, allowing for a more intuitive user experience. In fact, with a touch screen monitor, GIGABYTE Touch BIOSTM is as easy to use as most apps on your iPhone.



Built-in Visuals

Built-in Visuals GIGABYTE Z68 motherboards offer support for several 2nd generation Intel® CoreTM Built-in Visual Features.

Intel® Quick Sync Video

Up to 2X faster media processing than any other solution for incredibly fast conversion of video files for portable media players or online sharing.


Intel® InTruTM 3D

Users can enjoy the ultimate 3D visual experiences–seamlessly–from their PC. Now you they can watch their favorite 3D movies with Blu-ray Stereo 3D playback using active shutter 3D glasses. It delivers it all in 1080p full, high-definition resolution on the TV over HDMI 1.4.

Intel® Insider
Allows users to view premium 1080p HD content on their GIGABYTE Z68 series system.



Switchable Graphics with LucidLogix Virtu GPU Virtualization

GIGABYTE Z68 motherboards are enabled with LucidLogix Virtu GPU Virtualization technology which allows users to dynamically switch between their built-in graphics and their high-end, 3D discrete graphics cards. This is ideal for gamers who require high-resolution gaming and still want to enjoy the built-in media features of 2nd generation Intel® CoreTM processors. In so doing, switchable graphics helps to dramatically reduce PC graphics power consumption.



Multi-display support with CrossFireX and SLITM
