Gigabyte X99-SOC Champion features

New GIGABYTE X99-SOC Champion Motherboard for World Record Seekers
Featuring the latest Intel® X99 Chipset, support for Intel’s Core™ i7 Extreme Edition (LGA 2011-v3 socket) processors and latest DDR4 memory support, the X99-SOC Champion is built to reach extremes. One of the many unique features that make this motherboard a true Champion is the DIMM design engineered for the most extreme memory overclocking.

SMT mounted for improved signal quality and located closer to the CPU socket, the DIMM’s shorter trace path enables the DDR4 memory to communicate faster with the CPU, enabling the overclocker to reach never achieved before DDR4 memory frequencies.

The X99-SOC Champion also sports a unique all digital CPU power design from International Rectifier® which includes both 4th Generation digital PWM Controllers and industry-leading 3rd Generation PowIRstage® controllers, allowing enthusiasts to get the absolute maximum performance from their new Intel® Core™ i7 Extreme Edition CPUs.
