Software

GIGABYTE's Smart Manager is almost an extension of the function keys, in that it allows you to disable and enable hardware features as well as control things such as brightness, fan, and touch pad settings.

You can access Smart Dashboard through Smart Manager, and it allows you to keep up with your system's stats and more.

GIGABYTE's RGB Keyboard Fusion program allows you to control every aspect of keyboard lighting. You can even individually control the color of each key as well as load in custom profiles such as a wave or profiles for games.

Smart USB Backup is designed to allow you to back up your OS to a USB stick upon boot up. It will automatically pop up upon first boot.

GIGABYTE's P56 series comes with an update program, which will compare current driver versions with official and latest versions and allow you to update them.

LAN Optimizer will allow you to optimize networking control protocols for different tasks, there is also an audio program, but I wasn't able to get a screen grab of it. It's Dolby based.

 

 

BIOS

GIGABYTE's BIOS for the P56X is very basic, but it does offer enough configuration options to correctly configure the OS for Windows 10 or previous operating systems. On the last page, there are actually two settings to reinstate defaults for either type of OS.

 

You can also configure more important security and TPM settings, and disable hardware from the BIOS itself. There is no mouse control.
