Gigabyte Technology has announced its latest H55/H57 series motherboards, based on Intel's H55 and H57 chipsets 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 USB 2.0 specifications, while also providing new power management features.
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. In addition, dedicated lower resistance fuses ensure reduce voltage drops, and provide more stable and plentiful power delivery, according to the company.
