Gigabyte Rolls Out 7 Series Motherboards

Gigabyte has just announced the launch of its new 7 series motherboards, which the company claims sport a new power design, and the world's first dual UEFI BIOS.

The new Z77 chipset models are built to support the upcoming Intel Ivy Bridge processors, and come with a range of features designed to help overclockers and tweakers maximize their system with a minimum of fuss.

The motherboards have dual UEFI 3D BIOS, which offer two modes of interface, a 3D mode and advanced mode. According to Gigabyte, these "re-draw the traditional BIOS user experience with a far more intuitive and graphical interface."

The 7 series also boasts digital controllers for the CPU, graphics and system memory to facilitate more precise power delivery to PC components. The motherboards also utilize Ultra Durable 4 technology, with protection measures in terms of safeguards for moisture, high running temperatures, electro-static discharge and sudden power loss.

The boards are still fully compatible with Sandy Bridge, so you'll be able to run those CPUs in them happily enough until Ivy Bridge finally arrives.
