Press release, January 11; Joseph Tsai, DIGITIMES [Monday 11 January 2010]

Gigabyte Technology has announced its latest H55/H57 series motherboards, based on Intel's H55 and H57 chipset with support of USB 3.0 and DisplayPort.

The motherboards also include Gigabyte's Ultra Durable 3 design that features functions such as Smart6 PC management tools, Dynamic Energy Saver 2 utilities for power saving and DualBIOS.

Gigabyte's GA-H55M-USB3 and GA-H57M-USB3 motherboards support the latest SuperSpeed USB 3.0 technology through an onboard NEC uPD720200 host controller.

With transfer rates up to 5Gbps, users are able to experience an almost 10 times improvement over USB 2.0. In addition, the technology is backwards compatible with the USB 2.0 specification. The onboard NEC SuperSpeed USB 3.0 technology also provides new power management features, said Gigabyte.

The Gigabyte's GA-H55M-USB3 and GA-H57M-USB3 motherboards feature a 3x USB power boost, delivering greater compatibility and extra power for USB devices. Gigabyte's exclusive USB power design is also able to regulate output over the full voltage range, which greatly enhances USB device compatibility. In addition, dedicated lower resistance fuses ensure lower voltage drops, and provide more stable and plentiful power delivery, the company highlighted.
