Critical Temperature Environment
To Make sure GIGABYTE Ultra Durable Motherboards can work normally under the Critical Temperature Environment changes, each GIGABYTE Ultra Durable Motherboard must pass a Thermal Shock Process (High/Low Temperature Operational Test) in GIGABYTE’s R&D Laboratory.
For High Temperature Environments, the temperature will be set at 50°C with a humidity of up to 98%, for Low Temperature environments the temperature will be set at -10°C/0% humidity. Specialized test equipment is set to automatically run the motherboards for 4 hours at low temperature then slowly change to high temperatures for another 4 hours and repeating this test loop and cycle for 32 hours. Furthermore, during the test process motherboards are running non-stop testing a Reliability Test loop (3D Burn-In, On/Off, S3 Resume, Reboot).
GIGABYTE has a global logistic capacity and this test program assures Ultra Durable Motherboards can survive for long durations at sea in humid sea shipments to different critical environment countries with hot/humid weather such as India, or Cold/Dry weather in the Nordic region, and still function properly. If any components fail the test, our R&D can change the component or modify the design to solve any issues before starting to manufacture in mass quantities.
