*Theoretical Bandwidth based on PCI Express Specification.

 

Fast Speed. More Space.

This new model is equipped with four PCIe 4.0 M.2 sockets and it is capable to deliver superior bandwidth. Upgrade your storage configuration now to accelerate your workflow. PCIe 4.0 M.2 SSD gives you 7X faster data transferring speeds compared to 2.5" SATA solid-state drives.

 

NVMe PCIe x4 M.2

GIGABYTE's M.2 solution provides NVMe SSD RAID support for fast storage performance. For creators who demand high capacity and fast storage ability, the full speed PCIe 4.0 M.2 sockets offer them the flexibility for many storage combinations.

 

Creates Exclusive Storage Performance

The exclusive four PCIe 4.0 x4 M.2 sockets are designed to handle the most data-consuming tasks without extra configuration.

 

Thermal Technology

An effective cooling solution can prevent the risk of design work being interrupted by an unexpected system crash. GIGABYTE's advanced thermal solutions provide a perfect balance of aesthetics and performance. A large heat sink design and Direct-Touch Heatpipe II ensure stability during creative sessions.

 

M.2 Thermal Guard

GIGABYTE provides an Ultra-Efficient thermal solution for the latest PCIe 4.0 M.2 SSD drives. The enlarged M.2 heatsink also prevents thermal throttling of all M.2 SSDs and dissipates heat before it becomes a problem.

Thermal Throttling As Temperature Rises

 

SMART FAN 6

Numerous hybrid fan headers and temperature sensors are planted on the motherboard to monitor in real time and configure fan mode to fit different workloads via Smart Fan 6. Creators are allowed to set the trigger point to activate the fan and its corresponding speed. The fan completely stops when performing light tasks to avoid noise.
