Caratteristiche Tecniche

Iniziamo con le caratteristiche tecniche poichè c’è sicuramente molto da parlare di questa SOC. Innanzi tutto, cosa veramente molto rilevante troviamo l’adozione del PLX PEX8747 come si era già visto nella G1 Gaming, chip che permette letteralmente di sdoppiare le linee PCI-e disponibili permettendo configurazioni 4-way slI x8/x8/x8/x8 oppure più semplicemente 2-way SLI x16/x0/x16/x0. Il chip PLX sarà posto al di sotto dell’heatsink delle fasi, che in questo caso sono ben 22 e dotate della nuova generazione di IR digital power controller e PowIRstage che promettono una maggior dutrata generale della componentistica.

Altra nota va sicuramente alla disponibilità di ben 3 slot M.2 con data transfer fino a 32Gb/s, 3 SATA Express con data transfer fino a 16Gb/s e 8 delle classiche porte SATA da 6Gb/s. Nonostante si tratti di una scheda improntata per l’oc gli slot per lo spazio di archiviazione son davvero tanti, sia USB che sata che m.2 e sinceramente non ce lo aspettavamo.

Ultimo dettaglio molto rilevante, che tra l’altro caratterizza la serie SOC Force di Gigabyte è la presenza dell’OC PANEL che permette di gestire in modo comodo ed immediato i parametri di moltiplicatore e BCLK.

Di seguito troviamo comunque la lista delle specifiche complete.
