Quality Components Make Quality Motherboards
DDR3 2200+ / DDR2 1366+ Support
The World's Fastest DDR3 / DDR2 Motherboard
Delivering native support for DDR3 up to 2200+ and DDR2 up to 1366+ MHz, GIGABYTE Ultra Durable 3 series motherboards allow users to reach higher memory frequency at lower voltage; achieving higher memory performance with lower power consumption to run even the most memory intensive applications such as high-definition video and 3D games with ease.

2X Lower Impedance
  Impedance Ω Lower is better
  Doubling the amount of copper improves power efficiency by reducing circuit impedance by 50% and allowing more bandwidth for electron passage.
  2 OZ Copper PCB
  1 OZ Copper PCB
In addition, doubling the amount of copper lowers the PCB impedance by 50%. Impedance is a measure of how much the circuit impedes the flow of current. The less the flow of current is impeded, the less amount of energy is wasted. For GIGABYTE Ultra Durable 3 motherboards, this means total PCB electrical waste is reduced by 50%, which also means less heat is generated. 2 ounces of copper also provides improved signal quality, providing better system stability and allowing greater margins for overclocking.
Lower EMI
A good PCB circuit layout is the key of controlling EMI emission. Through GIGABYTE strong engineering design team and Ultra Durable 3 design featuring 2 ounces of copper for ground layer, improves signal integrity and lowering EMI emission through a very effective ground plane.
* Electromagnetic interference (or EMI) is an unwanted disturbance signals that affects surrounding electronic devices.
