Premium Components and Looks

The Z170X-Ultra Gaming motherboard performs well, this is due to the fact it also utilizes the highest standard of components.

The 15u gold-plated CPU socket prevents corrosion and allows for optimal contact points. Among other premium parts the 10K rated capacitors, anti-rust rear I/O connectors, and anti-sulphur resistors are just some that make this motherboard a premium product.

More Flexibility, Smoother Navigation

Faster Storage Performance

The motherboard ensures fast onboard storage with NVMe PCIe Gen3 x4 110mm M.2 (Up to 32 Gb/s). GIGABYTE’s M.2 solution offers substantially faster storage performance and support for both PCIe and SATA interfaces for M.2 SSD devices.

Using the NVMe protocol which takes advantage of the fast bandwidth of PCIe Gen3 x4 lanes (32 Gb/s), the drives are an apparent advantage for users looking to boot their OS faster, load their games in a flash and access large files without waiting.
