GIGABYTE GA-H77M-D3H Motherboard

With an Intel H77 chipset, the GIGABYTE GA-H77M-D3H motherboard supports all the features that the new 3rd generation Intel Core architecture has to offer. The price of the GA-H77M-D3H is R1 299.

The H77 chipset features include Intel® Rapid Start Technology™ to get your PC up and running faster, and Intel® Smart Connect Technology which allows your email, favorite apps, and social networks to automatically update even when the system is asleep. 

PCIe 3genThe GIGABYTE 7 series LGA155 motherboards take advantage of the latest connectivity and expansion bus technologies available on the Intel H77 platform. The 3rd generation Intel® Core™ processor platform introduces the new PCI Express gen. 3.0 expansion bus, allowing you to take advantage of the next generation, high-bandwidth discrete graphics card solutions.

The GA-H77M-D3H boasts the Gigabyte SuperSpeed USB 3.0 technology made possible through an additional onboard host controller. With superfast transfer rates of up to 5 Gbps, users are able to experience a theoretical 10x improvement over USB 2.0. Additionally, backwards compatibility with USB 2.0 assures users of long term use of their legacy USB 2.0 devices.

High-Speed SATA Revision 3.0 compatible, the GIGABYTE 7-Series motherboards deliver superfast 6Gbps link speeds for twice the data transfer rates of SATA Revision 2.0 (3 Gbps). When used in RAID 0 (Stripe) mode, they offer even faster data transfer rates of up to a theoretical 4x the speed of current SATA interfaces.
