With Touch BIOS, GigaByte engineers have completely redefined the way users can interact with their BIOS, providing a more intuitive user experience whether using a keyboard, mouse or touch screen.

GigaByte has designed easily recognizable icons to represent the main functions of the BIOS. Users can change CPU voltages and ratios using the Overclock icon, or monitor their system with the PC Status icon. GigaByte has also included icons for quick access to applications like Quick Boost and @BIOS, allowing for even greater levels of customization.

It is not necessary to enter the BIOS to modify the BIOS settings.

GigaByte Touch BIOS is a Windows application, so users no longer need to restart the PC to enter the BIOS and make changes. For example, if you want to change the boot device order, just go into GigaByte Touch BIOS and make the change. The next time the PC boots, it will use the new boot configuration. This helps save time for users who want to modify system parameters in an agile way.

Intel® Smart Response Technology.

GigaByte Z68 series boards incorporate the expected Intel Smart Response Technology, allowing you to enjoy a user experience similar to that provided only by SSD systems. Intel Smart Response Technology works through an ingenious block-based caching system that stores your most frequently used applications, positively impacting system performance and response times. In fact, GigaByte Z68 motherboards with Intel Smart Response technology double the performance of hybrid drive systems (PC Mark Vantage), four times that of traditional systems (hard disk storage only) (PC

GigaByte will release 4 exclusive Z68 models with integrated mSATA connection that will support Intel Smart Response Technology together with 20GB Intel 311 mSATA SLC SSDs, offering a noticeable increase in system performance.

Intel Quick Sync Video.

Intel Quick Sync Video makes quick work of creating, editing, syncing, and sharing video without the need to purchase additional hardware. In fact, Intel Quick Sync Video offers twice the performance in multimedia processing, making it much easier to convert formats for portable players or online sharing.

Graphics Switching with LucidLogix Virtu GPU Virtulization

GigaByte introduces its new Z68 series of motherboards with mSATA

GigaByte Z68 boards come with LucidLogix Virtu GPU virtualization technology that allows users to dynamically switch between the system’s integrated graphics system and their high-end 3D graphics card. This functionality is ideal for gamers who need to play in high resolution but still need the built-in capabilities of 2nd generation Intel Core processors. In this way, being able to switch between graphics systems helps to greatly reduce the consumption of the PC’s graphics system, quickly accessing all the graphics power when it is most needed.
