GIGABYTE Ultra Gaming Motherboard - Z170 Skylake

Gigabyte Z170 Chipset Motherboard

G1 Gaming motherboards from GIGABYTE are quite obviously built with gaming in mind. They do this by enhancing the technology in certain aspects, such as the audio, LAN performance, ambient LEDs for added style and much more. The featured XMP allows for quick and easy frequency tweaking, whilst the Dual Hybrid Fan Headers attached to the Z170 Ultra Gaming motherboard grant access to water cooling – with which you have the option to choose between voltage calibration or PWM modes.

USB 3.1 Capabilities

Top Motherboard Connection Speeds

The latest USB 3.1 offers a staggering 10Gb/s transfer speed, 2x faster than USB 3.0 and backward compatibility with existing USB devices.

USB 3.1 Controller

Exclusively on Gigabyte Powered Motherboards

The Intel USB 3.1 controller utilizes four PCIe Gen3 Lanes, offering up to 32 Gb/s total bandwidth, for uncompromised transfer speeds of up to 10 Gb/s per USB 3.1. With twice the bandwidth compared to its previous generation, and backwards compatibility with USB 2.0 and 3.0, the much improved USB 3.1 protocol is available over the new reversible USB Type-C and the traditional USB Type-A connector for better compatibility over a wider range of devices.

SATA Express Speeds

Next Generation SATA Express

SATA Express combines the benefits of PCI Express and SATA to provide much higher bandwidth, featuring data transfer rates of up to 16Gb/s.

Dual onboard M.2 Slots

Rapid Speed Storage

With PCIe Gen3 x4 M.2 connectors onboard, GIGABYTE brings to the user PCI-Express connectivity for SSD devices. Delivering up to 32 Gb/s data transfer speed per connector, the dual M.2 provides an ideal storage solution as it also supports RAID modes.

*Number of M.2 slots depends on motherboard

2-Way CrossFire

SLI and CrossFire Multi-Graphics

Multi-graphics configuration offers better graphics performance for gaming enthusiasts who demand the highest frame rates without compromising on resolution.

CPU Socket Design

15μ Gold Plated CPU Socket

GIGABYTE motherboards come equipped with a 15 micron thick gold plated CPU socket, which means that enthusiasts can enjoy absolute reliability and longevity for the CPU socket overtime, without having any concerns about corroded pins or bad contacts.

GIGABYTE DualBIOS means that your motherboard has both a 'Main BIOS' and a 'Backup BIOS', making users protected from BIOS failure due to virus attack, hardware malfunction, improper OC settings or power failure during the update process.

Ambient LED Design

Stylish Motherboard LED

Now offering more LED customizations than ever, users can truly adapt their PC to represent their lifestyle. With a redesigned Ambient LED application, the user has complete control over the LEDs which surround the motherboard.

Internet Accelerator Software

Realtek Green Motherboard Speed

Realtek Green GbE LAN features cFosSpeed, a network traffic management application which helps to improve network latency and maintain low ping times to delivery better responsiveness in a crowded LAN environments. Realtek Green GbE consumes significant less power when it’s in idle state in comparison.

Solid State Capacitors

Long Lifespan Durable Black Solid Caps

GIGABYTE motherboards integrate the absolute best quality solid state capacitors that are rated to perform at maximum efficiency for extended periods, even in extreme performance configurations. With ultra-low ESR no matter how high the CPU load, this provides peace of mind for end users who want to push their system hard, yet demand absolute reliability and stability. These exclusive capacitors also come in customized jet black, exclusively on GIGABYTE motherboards.

Advanced Motherboard Connections

Intel Thunderbolt 3 Certified Motherboard

Powered by Intel's own Thunderbolt controller the new Thunderbolt 3 protocol, which is available over a USB Type-C connector on the back I/O of the GIGABYTE Z170X-Designare, brings an unprecedented single-wire bandwidth of up to 40 Gb/s -- twice more than the previous generation of Thunderbolt! This incredible increase in bandwidth is also accompanied with support for different protocols such as DisplayPort 1.2 and USB 3.1, which is backwards compatible with USB 3.0 and USB 2.0, opening up a world of new possibilities.

Daisy-chain Multiple Devices

Thunderbolt 3 Capabilities

Support for Mini DisplayPort 1.2 makes Thunderbolt 3 a must have for any enthusiast. The Z170X-Ultra Gaming is able to support a display in 4K resolution at 60 FPS. In addition, Thunderbolt 3 over USB Type-C has revolutionary industry-first features such as Power Delivery 2.0, and the ability to daisy-chain up to 6 devices thanks to the Z170X-Ultra Gaming's USB Type-C port.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from mother board this is a good board has every thing I was looking for

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good board for skylake hackintosh Bought to build a hackintosh DAW machine along with i7 6700K, the rig works really well. I haven't tried the thunderbolt / usb 3.1 ports as I use a PCIe soundcard (RME). But so far it's working great. It needed a bios update to fix some problems with multiple EFI boot entries each time the machine restarted though. After that you're good to go!
