HardwareWiki.org Info
Combining the advantages of the Intel® P67 and H67 platforms in one complete package, the GIGABYTE Z68 series offer the best of both worlds; users can take advantage of the system tuning and overclocking features found in the Intel® P67 platform as well as the built-in visual features of the H67 platforms when combined with 2nd generation Intel® Core ™ processors.
GIGABYTE Touch BIOS™ (Patent Pending)

An Innovative New Way to Modify BIOS Settings

Navigating through the BIOS to change system settings can be a daunting task for users not familiar with control “F”functions and mouse-less navigation. While some EFI BIOS try to address this with a mouse friendly environment, many implementations still lack a certain ease-of-use necessary for most people. With GIGABYTE Touch BIOS™, GIGABYTE engineers have completely re-imagined how users can interact with their BIOS, allowing for a more intuitive user experience. In fact, with a touch screen monitor, GIGABYTE Touch BIOS™ is as easy to use as most apps on your iPhone.
Supports Intel® Smart Response Technology

Faster than HDD-only system

GIGABYTE Z68 series motherboards are equipped with the much anticipated Intel® Smart Response Technology, allowing users to experience system performance similar to SSD only systems. Intel® Smart Response technology works by using intelligent block-based caching of frequently used applications to improve system performance and responsiveness. In fact, GIGABYTE Z68 motherboards with Intel® Smart Response Technology are able to outperform hybrid drive systems by more than 2X (PC Mark Vantage) and HDD-only systems by as much as 4X (PC Mark Vantage).

* 4X+ Faster than HDD-only system in PC Mark Vantage(HDD Score)

Built-in Visuals

Built-in Visuals GIGABYTE Z68 motherboards offer support for several 2nd generation Intel® Core™ Built-in Visual Features.

Intel® Quick Sync Video
Up to 2X faster media processing than any other solution for incredibly fast conversion of video files for portable media players or online sharing.

Intel® InTru™ 3D
Users can enjoy the ultimate 3D visual experiences–seamlessly–from their PC. Now you they can watch their favorite 3D movies with Blu-ray Stereo 3D playback using active shutter 3D glasses. It delivers it all in 1080p full, high-definition resolution on the TV over HDMI 1.4.

Intel® Insider
Allows users to view premium 1080p HD content on their GIGABYTE Z68 series system.

Switchable Graphics with LucidLogix Virtu GPU Virtualization
GIGABYTE Z68 motherboards are enabled with LucidLogix Virtu GPU Virtualization technology which allows users to dynamically switch between their built-in graphics and their high-end, 3D discrete graphics cards. This is ideal for gamers who require high-resolution gaming and still want to enjoy the built-in media features of 2nd generation Intel® Core™ processors. In so doing, switchable graphics helps to dramatically reduce PC graphics power consumption.

New 100% Hardware VRD 12 Compliant CPU Power Design

GIGABYTE 6 series motherboards incorporate an Intel® approved Intersil PWM controller that is VRD 12 (Voltage Regulator Down) compliant. This means that it offers new features that include SerialVID (SVID) which transfers power management information between the processor and voltage regulator controller, allowing more robust and efficient signaling control between the CPU and PWM controller – hence, delivering a more energy efficient platform.
Driver MOSFETs - Integration of VRM Components

A traditional Voltage Regulator Module (VRM) consists of a Choke, Capacitors, MOSFETs and a Driver IC. By incorporating the MOSFETs and driver IC in accordance with the Intel® Driver-MOSFET specification, we can achieve higher power transfer and increased efficiency at higher switching frequencies to satisfy the growing power requirements of today's processors. Driver-MOSFETs also help to reduce VRM real estate requirements in the CPU zone.

    Reviewed by FG2010131238 at @ 10:51 AM Feb 26, 2012

    I could say a LOT of things about this MOBO. Is this one any good? Yes, sure. Would I buy if I could get back in time? No. Here is why:

    i3 2100
    intel 80gb ssd
    2x4gb ddr3 1600
    radeon hd 6850

    First of all, the provided Gigabyte Software's are total crap. Smart 6 and Dynamic Energy Saver 2 hung my computer. Enough.

    Lucidlogix Virtu doesn't work for me in d-mode. Had abysmal FPS in games. It seems I would have to format and install drivers in a certain order to make it works. Nonetheless it will fail with Catalyst. This is disapointing since this technology is promising. Go see Virtu MVP, they claims to "Improves gaming frame rates 30-70%" and "Increases Vsync frame rates – up to 120 FPS and beyond".


    Now Dolby Digital Live... ok listen, and listen carefully. The Realtek driver set the Optical audio output to 2 channels PCM in Windows. Now you'll hear the average dude saying "ya its predictible 'cause sdpif can't handle more". True. So every game you'll run will see your output as a 2 channels only and will NOT output a 5.1 channels PCM signal... so that the Dolby Digital Live (DDL) chip would successfully encode in pure Dolby and put on the optical wire for your receiver to enjoy. No, instead of that, the DDL takes the 2 channels PCM signal and "upmixe" it like the "good" old THX simulated surround would do. In other words, the provided Realtek drivers from Gigabyte totally fail to properly use the DDL chip and you end up with fake 5.1 surround sound on optical out. The Creative X-fi with somewhat the same specs manage to do it properly.
