Onboard Acceleration
 World’s first USB 3.0 logo certified solution from NEC
Utilizing the new generation SuperSpeed USB 3.0 interface from NEC with a 10x data transfer speed boost over USB 2.0, USB 3.0 features dual-simplex transfer for simultaneous data transfer from PC to USB device for improved data transfer efficiency.

 Utmost compatibility with 3x USB power boost
The 3x USB Power Boost from GIGABYTE is designed to deliver the utmost compatibility and stability for USB devices, such as external storage devices or optical drives, by supplying sufficient power through a single USB port. This will help free-up USB ports for using multiple USB devices on one motherboard.
  World’s First SATA Revision 3.0 solution provider from AMD SB850
Double your hard disk drive performance with SATA Revision 3.0 (SATA 6Gbps) from AMD SB850, the latest generation of high speed storage interface with RAID 0,1,5,10 support. Coupled with RAID 0 (Stripe) mode, SATA Revision 3.0 enables a data transfer boost of up to 4x speed over SATA Revision 2.0.
