GIGABYTE Technology Seminar: Power to the Processor
Tim Handley, Deputy Director of Motherboard Marketing came out like a bolt of lightning to shock the audience with an announcement. GIGABYTE's new GA-X59A-UD9 is able to deliver 1500 watts of power to the CPU.
GIGABYTE has a long history of removing technological barriers in their motherboards to achieve maximum performance. Getting good clean power and lots of it is the key to very high overclocks, but the X58A-UD9 takes CPU power technology to a whole new level.
Passing all that available power might lead some to think that component life might be shortened, but with GIGABYTE's new Dual Switching power, that is not the case.
GIGABYTE Unlocked Power also delivers better durability and longer component lifespan due to the industry's first Dual Power Switching* design. When Dual Power Switching is activated, 2 sets of 12 power phases operate in tandem, automatically turning on one set of 12 phases and powering down the other 12, allowing the non active set to rest. Unlike a traditional power design where some of the same power phases are always in operation which can cause them to wear out and fail prematurely, GIGABYTE Dual Power Switching ensures that each set of phases share the power workload, effectively doubling the lifespan of the phases.
Auto Failure Protection
Another unique feature of GIGABYTE's Dual Power Switching is that if one of the power phases for whatever reason is damaged or fails, the motherboard will automatically disable its group of 12 phases, allowing the motherboard to operate using the other set of twelve. Of course, with a traditional motherboard, if one power phase fails, the board is unable to operate.
Since no one needs to run their processor at incredible loads all the time, or the electric bill that would go along with it, GIGABYTE has created Phase Boost with Multi-Gear Switching.
When CPU loading requires more than 12 phases to be active, GIGABYTE Dual Power Switching temporarily suspends and the full 24 power phases are unlocked, allowing for maximum power delivery. For overclockers and power users, this means during maximum loading, all 24 power phases can be activated. When the system detects that CPU loading has again fallen below twelve power phases and will probably maintain lower CPU loading for a while, GIGABYTE Dual Power Switching will again activate automatically, ensuring users have the best of both worlds; maximum power delivery and maximum durability and power efficiency.
GIGABYTE's Unlocked Power Design also provides dynamic 6 gear switching, regardless if Dual Power Switching is active or not. When Dual Power Switching is turned on, the active set of power phases will operate from as low as Gear 1 which is 2 power phases for idle loading, all the way up to Gear 6, which is 12 power phases. When Dual Power Switching is deactivated, the system still operates using dynamic 6 gear switching, with Gear 1 being 4 active power phases, all the way up to Gear 6 which is all 24 power phases being activated. With dynamic 6 gear switching, GIGABYTE Unlocked Power is able to maintain peak power efficiency at all times, whether light or heavy loading.
