The GIGABYTE GA-X99-UD4 motherboard comes with a wide range of features that would delight not only the gamer or the power user, but also the basic or inexperienced PC user.GA-X99-UD4, based on the Intel X99 Express chipset, is designed for socket LGA2011-v3 processors. These processors presently consist of Core i7 5xxx series CPUs and Xeon E5 1xxx-v3 and E5 2xxx-v3 CPUs. GIGABYTE’s least priced X99 motherboard, GA-X99-UD4 still accommodates all of the extreme performance features of that platform.
All GIGABYTE X99 motherboards feature a unique PCI Express design that utilizes 100% of all 40 lanes from the CPU when in a 4-Way or 3-Way graphics configuration. Standard designs limit all 4 main PCIe lanes to x8 (64Gb/s) bandwidth, but thanks to the onboard external clock generator combined with the direct connection of one of the x16 lanes to the CPU (switchless design), GIGABYTE X99 motherboards can unlock the full bandwidth available and provide the best graphics bandwidth possible.
The motherboard offers support for up to 4-Way GPU configurations, 8 DDR4 modules, 10 SATA 3 devices or 8 SATA 3 devices and also, a SATA Express device. You also get dual M.2 ports to facilitate greater storage and optional WiFi / Bluetooth cards.
High quality audio is another prominent feature of GA-X99-UD4. While an amplifier chip gives you the stereo output, the motherboard also offers a choicest blend of other augmentations, such as audio-exclusive capacitors. The left and right output channels are divided between diverse PCB layers to reduce crosstalk.
GA-X99-UD4 comes with Intel Gigabit LAN networking, a popular choice with gamers that features several performance-enhancing utlitities, including advanced interrupt handling to help reduce CPU overhead and Jumbo Frame support for extra large data packets.
Additionally, GIGABYTE X99 series motherboards feature cFos Speed, a network traffic management application which helps improve network latency, maintaining low ping times to deliver better responsiveness in a crowded LAN environment. cFos Speed works in a similar way to an OS driver, monitoring network traffic packets at the application layer, allowing optimization and improved network performance for specific applications.
