Gigabyte offers its Dual UEFI on an accessible motherboard

The function of Dual-UEFI BIOS Gigabyte finally arrives on entry-level cards.

Gigabyte has tried to avoid having to propose of UEFI BIOS in clinging to his HybridEFI, evolution of the AwardBIOS proposed on mainboards socket LGA 1155 and AM3 +, before moving to the UEFI on top-of-range in 2011 LGA maps, in proposing its Dual-BIOS UEFI technology. Were expected therefore see this disembark on the more accessible maps of the manufacturer, which implies that it agrees to pay more EEPROM modules more high capacity.

It is therefore interesting to see that the Japan, Gigabyte announced a revision of its GA-H61MA-D3V, a map of entry-level socket LGA 1155 integrating Intel H61 chipset that offers Dual-UEFI. Beyond that, this card also offers the Ultra-Durable 4 Classic, which indicates that it is made from quality components, including a new PCB more moisture-resistant glass fibre.

The processor is fed by a power supply with 5 phases, while the card can accommodate two bars of DDR3, offers a PCIe x 16 port and three PCIe x 1, two ports SATA 6 Gbps controlled by a chip Marvell 88SE9172 and four SATA 3 Gbps. The audio is managed on 6 HD channels, and map this two port USB 3.0, a Gigabit Ethernet and outputs video DVI connector (controlled by a chip EtronTech EJ168) and VGA. This Rev 2.0 is expected for the month of may at a price of $ 50.
