GIGABYTE's Smart Manager is their hardware controller, allowing you to change settings that Windows might not offer. In this case, users can tweak fan speed, switch storage modes, and even reduce the amount of blue light. Smart Dashboard offers real-time monitoring of hardware health and temperatures.
GIGABYTE also has a special program for programming the Macro keys.
Audio programs are mixed between Realtek's HD audio manager and Dolby's audio suite, which allows for some great effects. There is also a LAN Optimizer that allows you to change network bandwidth priority for games or other applications.
Elan's Smart Pad allows you customize touch pad operation. GIGABYTE also has a Smart Update program that will check current driver version and offer official driver and beta driver versions. The Smart Update program works, but I had to update each driver individually as I couldn't find the batch update button.
The BIOS is nothing special. You have basic control over most settings that a consumer might need, such as boot order and OS type. There are two presets that will reset BIOS settings for Windows 7 or Windows 8.1/10 boot operation for users who might have screwed up boot settings by messing around in the BIOS.
