LGA1155 Intel 3rd/2nd Generation Processors Ready
This motherboard supports the Intel 3rd/2nd generation processors in the LGA1155 package, with iGPU, memory and PCI Express controllers integrated to support onboard graphics output with dedicated chipsets, 2-channel DDR3 memory and 16 PCI Express 3.0/2.0 lanes. This provides great graphics performance. Intel 3rd/2nd generation processors are among the most powerful and energy efficient CPUs in the world.
Intel Smart Response Technology
Intel Smart Response Technology boosts overall system performance. It uses an installed fast SSD (min 18.6GB available capacity required) as a cache for frequently accessed data. Key benefits include reduced load and wait times, and lower power consumption through the elimination of unnecessary hard drive spin. This technology combines SSD performance with hard drive capacity, operating up to 6X faster than a hard drive-only system.
Intel Smart Connect Technology
Your computer can receive web updates with fresh content for selected applications, even when the system is in sleep mode. This means less time waiting for applications to update and sync with the cloud, leading to a more efficient computing experience.
Intel H77 Express Chipset
The Intel H77 Express Chipset is a single-chipset design to support socket 1155 Intel 3rd/2nd generation processors. It provides improved performance by utilizing serial point-to-point links, allowing increased bandwidth and stability. Additionally, H77 chipset provides 4 USB 3.0 ports for 10 times faster data retrieval speed. Moreover, Intel H77 Express Chipset can also enable iGPU function, letting users enjoy the latest Intel integrated graphic performance.
Intel Rapid Start Technology
Allows your computer to quickly resume from a low-power hibernate state in seconds. Saving your system memory to the designated SSD, it provides your computer a faster wake-up response time, while still keeping the energy use low.
