Software

GIGABYTE's Smart Manager is the go-to application for controlling the many functions of the notebook. All the function keys are mirrored by the Smart Manager application. You also get the ability to control the amount of blue light emitted from the screen for easier nighttime viewing. GIGABYTE also includes PowerDVD, and audio can be configured through Realtek HD Audio manager.

Within the Smart Manager program is the Smart Dashboard where you can get a real-time glimpse of how system resources are being utilized.

Updating drivers is made simple through an included update utility. GIGABYTE also provides a Smart USB Backup utility to produce a backup of the OS installation. XSplit Gamecaster and Broadcaster also come pre-installed.

 

 

BIOS

The BIOS on the GIGABYTE P55W v6 looks very similar to that of the traditional BIOS rather than UEFI. It is a UEFI, and you have basic configuration options. Something intriguing is the ability to select Windows versions, and while the system comes with Windows 10, it looks like you can install Windows 7 if you want.
