DualBIOS™ 3TB+ HDD Support
(Hybrid EFI Technology)
3TB+ HDD support is an essential new feature for 2011, and has been one of the most talked about technologies accompanying the launch of the new AMD 900 series motherboards. GIGABYTE supports booting from 3TB+ HDDs on all Currently Shipping motherboards through GIGABYTE's unique Hybrid EFI Technology. Hybrid EFI Technology combines the benefits of GIGABYTE's mature BIOS platform including stability and compatibility with 3rd party products with 3TB+ HDD support from EFI technology, allowing GIGABYTE to offer the best of both worlds.

GIGABYTE DualBIOS™ is a patented technology that automatically recovers BIOS data when the main BIOS has crashed or failed. Featuring 2 physical BIOS ROMs integrated onboard, GIGABYTE DualBIOS™ allows quick and seamless recovery from BIOS damage or failure due to viruses or improper BIOS updating. In addition, GIGABYTE DualBIOS™ now supports 3TB+ (terabyte) hard drive booting without the need for partitioning, and enables more data storage on a single hard drive.

108dB Signal-to-Noise
ratio playback
All of GIGABYTE's 2011 motherboards feature the Realtek ALC889 audio codec, or higher capability audio solution to deliver high-performance, multi-channel HD audio. The ALC889 incorporates Realtek's proprietary converter technology which is able to achieve 108dB Signal-to-Noise ratio (SNR) playback quality. SNR is a comparison of the amount of signal to the amount of noise such as hiss present in the signal (expressed in Decibels). A higher SNR equals a better audio experience. For example, 108dB, is a high audio specification, as this means the audio signal is 108dB higher than the level of the noise.
