GIGABYTE All Digital Power Engine
GIGABYTE Z77 series motherboards take advantage of an
exclusive All Digital PWM controller array, to deliver power
to the board's 3rd generation Intel®Core™
processor. Using entirely digital controllers means that
more precise power delivery to the motherboard's most power
hungry and energy sensitive components is possible. These
components include the CPU, VTT, processor graphics and
memory, without doubt the most important components on your
motherboard. This All Digital Power system, with Precise
Auto Voltage Compensation, provides you with exceptional
control over the component power delivery on your GIGABYTE 7
GIGABYTE 3D Power: Digital Voltage, Frequency and Phase
Utilizing an exclusive All Digital controller array,
GIGABYTE's 3D Power features precise Auto Voltage
Compensation to deliver a steady flow of power to the
system, no matter the loading. With digital controllers for
the CPU (Vcore), VTT, processor graphics and memory (DDR),
users can make real-time adjustments with the exclusive
GIGABYTE 3D Power Utility, that include settings such as OVP
(Over Voltage Protection), Load-line Calibration and
on-the-fly PWM frequency adjustment.
GIGABYTE 3D Power (patent pending) Utility
Users can enjoy a fully interactive 3D utility
that facilitates adjustment of the 3 dimensions that
control the power delivery to your CPU and Memory:
Voltage, Phase and Frequency. These parameters are
crucial to how the digital PWM supplies power to
critical areas of the motherboard and can help users
quickly obtain the highest, most stable overclock.
3D Power: Voltage Control
Voltage parameters can be modified within 3D Power,
including load line calibration of the CPU. By
adjusting load line calibration, Vdroop can be
avoided, maintaining optimal voltages levels despite
increasing current levels. OVP (over voltage
protection) can also be adjusted to change default
protection range of the CPU, IGP, VTT and system
3D Power: Phase Control
Users can calibrate OCP (Over Current Protection)
for the CPU, integrated memory controller and system
memory power levels. This allows the Phase control
to deliver even more power to the system when
3D Power: Frequency Control
GIGABYTE's all digital PWM allows for adjustable
frequency control via the International Rectifier
PWM controller. 3D Power frequency control allows
users to change the PWM controller frequency so that
the CPU VRM can adjust power delivery speeds more
quickly. Users can also adjust the PWM spectrum or
maximum and minimum overall frequencies.
GIGABYTE 3D BIOS (patent pending)
The revolutionary GIGABYTE 3D BIOS
application is based on GIGABYTE UEFI DualBIOS™
technology and is available to consumers in two
exclusive modes of interaction, providing enthusiast

BIOS configuration a new and exciting experience for
novice and experienced users alike. UEFI BIOS also
brings native support for large hard drives on
64-bit operating systems.
Designed to provide an extremely streamlined and
user-friendly BIOS environment, GIGABYTE's exclusive
3D mode offers a fully interactive and illustrative
GUI that allows users to easily and intuitively make
key adjustments to the UEFI BIOS settings for
optimum performance. 3D Mode allows novice or casual
users to more clearly understand the areas of the
motherboard that are being affected through the BIOS
settings, gaining a clearer understanding of the
Advanced mode provides a more comprehensive UEFI
BIOS environment that is designed specifically for
overclockers and power users who want maximum
control over their PC's hardware. GIGABTYE's
signature M.I.T. tuning technology can be found
alongside fully configurable parameters for
GIGABTE's all new digital 3D Power engine. In short,
advanced mode combines the signature GIGABYTE BIOS
expertise you've come to expect, wrapped a slick,
new and optimized graphical UEFI interface.
