GIGABYTE 3D BIOS™ (patent pending)
Based on GIGABYTE UEFI DualBIOS™ technology, GIGABYTE FM2 series motherboards are the first AMD platform motherboards to feature the excusive GIGABYTE 3D BIOS™. Offering two exclusive modes of interaction tailored for enthusiast and novice users, 3D BIOS™ offers a unique and powerful graphical interface that makes it easier than ever to adjust your PC’s BIOS settings.
3D Mode
Designed to provide an extremely streamlined and user-friendly BIOS environment, GIGABYTE’s exclusive 3D mode offers a fully interactive and illustrative GUI that allows users to easily and intuitively make key adjustments to the UEFI DualBIOS™ settings for optimum performance. 3D Mode allows novice or casual users to more clearly understand the areas of the motherboard that are being affected through the BIOS settings, gaining a clearer understanding of the BIOS functionality.
Advanced Mode
Advanced mode provides a more comprehensive UEFI BIOS environment that is designed specifically for overclockers and power users who want maximum control over their PC's hardware. It also combines the signature GIGABYTE BIOS expertise you've come to expect, wrapped a slick, new and optimized graphical UEFI interface.
UEFI DualBIOS™ Technology
At the heart of this exciting 3D BIOS™ technology is a pair of physical BIOS ROMs containing GIGABYTE’s exclusive in-house designed UEFI DualBIOS™ technology. With a superior graphical interface capable of 32-bit color imaging and fluid user-friendly mouse navigation, GIGABYTE UEFI DualBIOS™ makes BIOS configuration a new and exciting experience for novice and experienced users alike. GIGABYTE UEFI DualBIOS™ also brings native support for large hard drives on 64-bit operating systems.



Digital Power
Utilizing a Digital controller array, GIGABYTE's Digital Power features precise Auto Voltage Compensation to make real-time adjustments and deliver a steady flow of power to the system, no matter the loading. This all new, digital power system provides enthusiast users with exceptional control over the over -clocking potential of their GIGABYTE motherboard.

* Features may vary by model.



Lucid Universal MVP Support

The GIGABYTE GA-F2A85X-UP4 motherboard supports Lucid Virtu GPU virtualization technologies - optimized virtualization software that improves your PC’s visuals, with faster response times, improved video processing and smoother media playback, all within a low power environment.

Lucid Universal MVP also features Hyperformance, which eliminates redundant rendering tasks and predicts potential synchronization issues in the graphics delivery pipeline, producing faster frame rates, sharper visuals and reduced tearing.
Switchable Graphics
Allows users to dynamically switch between built-in graphics and high-end, 3D discrete graphics cards.



333 Onboard Acceleration
3x USB Power
GIGABYTE motherboards feature a 3x USB power boost, delivering greater compatibility and extra power for USB devices. GIGABYTE’s unique USB power design is also able to efficiently regulate output over the full voltage range, which greatly enhances USB device compatibility. In addition, dedicated lower resistance fuses ensure lower voltage drops, and provide more stable and plentiful power delivery.

* 3x USB power is a maximum theoretical value.
   Actual performance may vary by system configuration.
USB 3.0
GIGABYTE motherboards boast SuperSpeed USB 3.0 technology made possible through native support from the AMD FM2 series motherboards as well as through an additional onboard host controller. With superfast transfer rates of up to 5 Gbps, users are able to experience a theoretical 10x improvement over USB 2.0. Additionally, backwards compatibility with USB 2.0 assures users of long term use of their legacy USB 2.0 devices.

* USB 3.0 10x performance is a maximum theoretical value.
   Actual performance may vary by system configuration.
SATA 3.0
GIGABYTE motherboards are High-Speed SATA Revision 3.0 compatible, delivering superfast 6Gbps link speeds for twice the data transfer rates of SATA Revision 2.0 (3 Gbps). When used in RAID 0 (Stripe) mode, they offer even faster data transfer rates of up to a theoretical 4x the speed of current SATA interfaces.

* SATA3 RAID 0 4x and SATA3 2x performance are maximum theoretical values.
   Actual performance may vary by system configuration.



GIGABYTE Helps You Quick Charge Your iPhone / iPad / iPod Touch

GIGABYTE On/Off Charge technology allows you to charge your iPhone, iPad and iPod Touch regardless of whether your PC is on, in standby mode or even off. A derivative of GIGABYTE's highly acclaimed 3x USB Power feature, On/Off Charge enables devices to draw more current from GIGABYTE motherboard USB ports than standard USB ports allow, so that charging from your PC can be as fast as with a charger.

Due to certain mobile phone limitations, users may need to connect the mobile phone to their PC before the PC enters S4/S5 mode to enable a quick charge from non ON/OFF Charge USB ports.
Charging results may vary by model.

* ON/OFF Charge USB port only for F2A85X-UP4.

Unique GIGABYTE User Friendly Hardware Design
Onboard Quick buttons
GIGABYTE quick switches are made for power users who often use and test their motherboard without a PC case. GIGABYTE high-end models all come with on-board Quick Switches that allow power users to easily turn on, reset, or clear CMOS. All on-board Quick Switches are LED backlit so you can find them in a low light environment.
80 Port Debug Display
GIGABYTE includes debug LEDs on some premium models. Debug LEDs provides a 2 digit display to show your current system condition. The debug LED display allows advanced users to easily understand and diagnose the system when their PC won’t boot up properly. With the debug LEDs, advanced users no longer need to “GUESS” what is wrong or which component is faulty when they face system issues.
