Ready for 6th-generation Intel LGA1151 Core i7/ i5/ i3/Pentium/Celeron
GIGABYTE GA-Z170X-Gaming G1 support 6th-generation Intel Core i7/i5/i3/Pentium/Celeron processors in the LGA1151 package, with graphics, memory and PCI Express controllers integrated to support onboard graphics output with dedicated chipsets, two-channel (4-DIMM) DDR4 memory and 16 PCI Express 3.0/2.0 lanes for great graphics performance.
Intel® Z170 Express Chipset
GIGABYTE GA-Z170X-Gaming G1 support Intel® Z170 Express is a single-chipset design that supports 6th-generation Intel LGA1151 Core™ i7/Core i5/Core i3/Pentium®/Celeron® processors. It provides improved performance by utilizing serial point-to-point links, allowing increased bandwidth and stability. Additionally, Z170 provides a maximum of ten USB 3.0 ports, six SATA 6Gbit/s ports, 32Gbit/s M.2 and PCIe 3.0 lane speed support for faster data retrieval. Intel Z170 Express also supports integrated-graphics (iGPU) functions, so you’ll enjoy the very latest Intel integrated graphics performance.
Onboard Storage M.2
GIGABYTE GA-Z170X-Gaming G1 support Onboard M.2 is a specification for internally mounted computer expansion cards and associated connectors. It replaces the mSATA standard, which uses the PCI Express Mini Card physical card layout and connectors. M.2’s more flexible physical specification allows different module widths and lengths, and, paired with the availability of more advanced interfacing featuresM.2 supports up to 32Gbit/s data-transfer speeds. It is the perfect choice for an operating system or application drive, making your whole PC or professional apps work as fast as possible.
GIGABYTE GA-Z170X-Gaming G1 support Current SSDs devour up to 550MB/s bandwidth, which is close to saturation point for SATA 6Gbit/s connections. SATA Express (abbreviated from Serial ATA Express and sometimes unofficially shortened to SATAe) is a computer bus interface that supports both Serial ATA (SATA) and PCI Express (PCIe) storage devices, initially standardized in the SATA 3.2 specification. The SATA Express connector used on the host side is backward compatible with the standard 3.5-inch SATA data connector, while it also provides two PCI Express lanes as a pure PCI Express connection to the storage device.
GIGABYTE GA-Z170X-Gaming G1 support USB 3.1 Gen2
Transferring your favorite games, music and movies over USB has never been faster. USB 3.1 Gen2 enables lightning fast transfer speeds up to 10Gb/s!
– 2X faster than USB 3.1 Gen1
– 20X faster than USB 2.0
– Up to 10Gbps data transfer bandwidth
– Boost transfer rate for your PC and peripherals
Type-C with reversible design
Get all the performance benefits from USB 3.1 Gen2 combined with the convenience of the USB Type-C connector. This reversible connector allows for effortless connecting of USB devices.
GIGABYTE GA-Z170X-Gaming G1 support HDMI
HDMI™ is a High-Definition Multimedia Interface which provides up to 5Gb/s video transmitting bandwidth and 8-channel high quality audio all through a single cable. Able to transmit superior, uncompressed digital video and audio, HDMI™ ensures the crispest rendering of digital content up to 1080p without the quality losses associated with analog interfaces and their digital-to-analog conversion. In addition, HDMI™ is compatible with HDCP (High-bandwidth Digital Content Protection), allowing the playback of Blu-ray/HD DVD and other protected media content.
GIGABYTE GA-Z170X-Gaming G1 support Killer DoubleShot-X3™ Pro
Killer DoubleShot-X3™ Pro provides unprecedented speed, intelligence, and control for systems that have a Killer™ Wireless-AC adapter and two Killer™ Ethernet controllers. Killer DoubleShot-X3™ Pro picks the fastest (lowest latency) network connection (Either 1st Killer Ethernet, 2nd Killer Ethernet or Killer Wireless) and sends all high priority traffic over that interface. Standard traffic is sent over the next fastest interface and bulk traffic is sent over the 3rd interface. This ensures traffic is sent to the interface that maximizes the total performance of the users system. Killer™ technology automatically identifies all latency sensitive gaming and voice traffic so that these time-critical packets will be sent over the fastest interface. The user also has the ability to prioritize each applications traffic via the Killer Network Manager which will directly impact the interface each application’s traffic is sent to.
Killer DoubleShot-X3™ Pro allows the use of all three Killer™ interfaces at the same time to provide more usable bandwidth to the end user. Each Killer™ Ethernet controller is capable of handling 1Gbps of traffic and Killer ™ Wireless-AC is capable of handling 867Mbps of traffic. Killer DoubleShotX-3™ Pro allows all three of these interfaces to work at the same time which will give the end user max throughput as high as 2.867Gbps. In order to do this, the user will need to get data from at least 3 different sources because a typical device is usually limited to sending 1Gbps or less.
