Unique Features 
  High Performance Data Storage Ample super fast storage
With more USB 3.0 ports than ever before (up to 10 on the Z68X-UD7-B3), GIGABYTE Z68 series motherboards offer extremely fast connectivity for portable flash and external backup drives (up to 10x USB 2.0 speed). For a significant performance boost during daily operations, configure your PC with a SATA 6Gbps hard drive as your Operating System and application drive. Combined with SATA 6Gbps, GIGABYTE XHD Technology offers a performance boost of up to 4x that of SATA 3Gbps through a simple and intuitive utility, allowing you to boot-up your system and launch applications faster than you ever thought possible.
  USB 3.0 10x performance is a maximum theoretical value.
Actual performance may vary by system configuration.
  SATA3 RAID 0 4x and SATA3 2x performance are maximum
theoretical values. Actual performance may vary by system configuration.
  3x USB power is a maximum theoretical value.
Actual performance may vary by system configuration.

  Ultra Safe : DualBIOS™ 3TB+ HDD Support

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 Socket 1155 6 series motherboards. GIGABYTE not only 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.

What if the BIOS Fails?
Have you ever been in the middle of a BIOS update and then had it fail for some reason? Or how about executing some applications only to find out that you’ve been infected by some new virus that completely blows away your BIOS? Without the BIOS working the motherboard is basically not functional at all. Can you imagine the time and effort to get your motherboard fixed?

ratio playback
All of GIGABYTE's 2011 motherboards feature the Realtek ALC889 audio codec, or better 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.
