motherboard supports LGA1155 socket for 3rd generation Intel® Core™
processor-based platform and 2nd Generation Core™ i7/ i5/ i3/ Pentium® /
Celeron® Processors in the LGA1155 package, with iGPU, memory and PCI
Express controllers integrated to support onboard graphics output with
dedicated chipsets, 2-channel (4 DIMM) DDR3 memory and 16 PCI Express
3.0/2.0 lanes. This provides great graphics performance. LGA1155 socket
for 3rd generation Intel® Core™ processor-based platform and 2nd
Generation Core™ i7/ i5/ i3/ Pentium® / Celeron® Processorsare among the
most powerful and energy efficient CPUs in the world
Intel® Z77 Express Chipset is a single-chipset design to support
LGA1155 socket for 3rd generation Intel® Core™ processor-based platform
and 2nd Generation Core™ i7/ i5/ i3/ Pentium® / Celeron® Processors. It
provides improved performance by utilizing serial point-to-point links,
allowing increased bandwidth and stability. Additionally, Z77 chipset
provides 4 USB 3.0 ports for 10 times faster data retrieval speed.
Moreover, Intel® Z77 Express Chipset can also enable iGPU function,
letting users enjoy the latest Intel® integrated graphic performance.
The motherboard supports DDR3 memory that features data transfer
rates of DDR3 2400(O.C.)/
2200(O.C.)/2133(O.C.)/1866(O.C.)/1600/1333/1066 MHz to meet the higher
bandwidth requirements of the latest 3D graphics, multimedia and
Internet applications. The dual-channel DDR3 architecture enlarges the
bandwidth of your system memory to boost system performance.
Flexible Multi-GPU solutions, Your Weapon of Choice!
The motherboard’s powerful Intel® Z77 platform optimizes PCIe allocation
in multiple-GPU configurations of CrossFireX™. This allows you to enjoy
a never before-experienced brand new gaming style.
SSD Speed with HDD Capacity
Intel® Smart Response Technology boosts overall system performance. It
uses an installed fast SSD (min 18.6GB available capacity required) as a
cache for frequently accessed data. Key benefits include reduced load
and wait times, and lower power consumption through the elimination of
unnecessary hard drive spin. This technology combines SSD performance
with hard drive capacity, operating up to 6X faster than a hard
Auto Application Refresh. Less Waiting Time
Your computer can receive web updates with fresh content for selected
applications, even when the system is in sleep mode. This means less
time waiting for applications to update and sync with the cloud, leading
to a more efficient computing experience.
Instant Awake your PC from Sleep Mode
Allows your computer to quickly resume from a low-power hibernate state
in seconds. Saving your system memory to the designated SSD, it provides
your computer a faster wake-up response time, while still keeping the
energy use low.
