Why should you move from Z68 to Z77?


Included in the media kit for GIGABYTE Z77X-UD5H we have some stand out slides which give us a really good idea of why you'd want to move over from a Z68 based board to the new Z77X-UD5H.




Compared to the 6 series GIGABYTE boards you can see some of the new stand out features include All Digital PWM, Dual UEFI BIOS, the new WiFi + Bluetooth card we saw in some of their X79 boards along with the latest version of GIGABYTE Ultra Durable.


We've also got the latest version of Intel Quick Sync and other new Intel technologies like Rapid Start and Smart Connect. Along with those we've got the latest version of Lucid Virtu known as MVP which is said to offer some huge performance gains along with finally the introduction of native USB 3.0 connectivity via the Intel chipset.


Before we move into the testbed side of things let's just have a quick look at some of those main benefits on offer.










We've got some awesome new features on the GIGABYTE board and the Lucid Virtu MVP is one of the more recent technologies we're seeing with the new Z77 chipset that really stands out. There are some exciting possibilities to what the feature can do and it's something we're going to really be looking more into in the immediate future.
