By adapting PCI-E 3.0 quick switch IC onboard, Fatal1ty Z68 Professional Gen3 supports the Next-Gen PCI-E 3.0! PCI Express 3.0 can maximize the bandwidth for the next-gen PCI Express 3.0 VGA cards, provide ultimate graphics performance. PCIe 3.0 is the next evolution of the ubiquitous and general-purpose PCI Express I/O standard, at 8GT/s bit rate. The following table summarizes the bit rate and approximate bandwidths for the various generations of the PCI-E architecture. All the capacitors on the Fatal1ty Series gaming motherboard are luxury, Premium Gold Caps. These 100% Japan-made solid capacitors are sleek, high gloss caps with a premium gold coating representing long life and stable performance. The Fatal1ty Series motherboard is designed with a V12+6 Power Phase, featuring sturdy components and completely smooth power delivery to the CPU. The Fatal1ty Z68 Professional Gen3 offers unmatched overclocking capability and enhanced performance with the lowest temperatures for PC gaming enthusiasts. Digital Pulse-width modulation By adopting digital Pulse-width modulation (PWM), the Fatal1ty Series can provide CPU Vcore voltage more efficiently and smoothly. Compared to analog PWM, digital PWM can optimize the CPU power solution and provide a proper and stable Vcore for the processor. With Lucid Virtu software, next-generation PCs with 2nd Generation Intel Core processor platforms will dynamically assign tasks in real time to the best available graphics resource based on power, performance and features. For users who are tempted to connect the SSD and HDD on motherboard, the Intel Smart Response Technology can make the SSD become the Cache of the HDD to boost up the HDD access speed. Fatal1ty Motherboard breaks the limitation and offers sufficient PCI-E lanes solution by embedding PLX PEX8608 chip onboard. Fatal1ty Mouse Port is a customizable technology for PC gamers that is a part of F-Stream. After plugging the USB mouse into the Fatal1ty Mouse Port and running F-Stream, gamers can use Fatal1ty's personal preferred mouse polling rate at 500 Hz. F-Stream also provides the flexibility for gamers to adjust the mouse polling rate from 125 Hz to 1000 Hz. This is helpful for professional gamers to experience smoother game play and faster response time to the mouse.

Description

Fatal1ty XFast USB Technology redefines the new standard in high performance computing. Proving once again to be the pioneer in motherboard industry, Fatal1ty XFast USB Series Motherboards integrate with the latest XFast USB Technology which delivers the world's fastest USB data transfer speed. According to the below graph, it shows that the Fatal1ty XFast USB technology can even boost USB 3.0 performance up to 386.14% The Fatal1ty F-Stream tuning program is an all-in-1 software utility that supports overclocking and hard-ware tuning such as energy usage, H/W monitor, fan speed control and Fatal1ty Mouse Port Configuration. In Hardware Monitor, it shows the major readings of your system. In Fan Control, it shows the fan speed and temperature for you to adjust. In Overclocking, you are allowed to adjust the CPU frequency, ratio and some voltages for optimal system performance. In Mouse Polling, gamers can freely adjust the mouse polling rate. In Energy Saving, the voltage regulator can reduce the number of output phases to improve efficiency when the CPU cores are idle without sacrificing computing performance. Unified Extensible Firmware Interface (UEFI) is a revolutionary BIOS utility which offers tweak-friendly options in an advanced viewing interface. Compared with traditional BIOS design, the latest UEFI utility provides lots improved functions. The major features of UEFI include: 1. Graphical Visual Experience - UEFI provides an improved visual interface with colourful icons and makes your computing environment more versatile to replace the traditional dull BIOS page. 2. Mouse Enabling - Besides keyboard control, you can freely use mouse to select your ideal settings in UEFI as well. 3. Supports 3TB bootable HDD - UEFI breaks the limitations of 2TB bootable HDD on traditional BIOS. With UEFI, you can enjoy 3TB bootable HDD.
