Overview
Ultra Durable 3
GIGABYTE Ultra Durable 3 design, featuring 2 ounces of copper for both the Power and
Ground layers which dramatically lowers system temperature by delivering a more efficient
spreading of heat from critical areas of the motherboard such as the CPU power zone
throughout the entire PCB. GIGABYTE's Ultra Durable 3 also lowers the PCB impedance by
50%, which helps to reduce electrical waste and further lowers component temperatures. A 2oz
Copper layer design also provides improved signal quality and lower EMI (Electromagnetic
Interference), providing better system stability and allowing for greater margins for
overclocking...more
Benefits of 2 oz Copper PCB
• Cooler than traditional motherboards
• Enhanced durability
• Improved energy efficiency
• Greater margins for overclocking... more

Intel® Core i7/ Core i5 LGA 1156 Processors
The Intel brand new computing architecture based on the innovation of micro-architecture
®
transforms 3-chip solutions to a 2-chip platform. The next generation Intel Core™ i7/ Core™ i5
processors with LGA1156 package integrate graphics and memory controller to support dual
channel DDR3 memory. Supporting Intel Turbo Boost technology and Hyper-Threading
®
Technology, Intel Core™ i7/ Core™ i5 processors provide the overwhelming performance with
optimized power efficiency.
DDR3 2200+ Support
P55-UD3 support Intel Core™ i7/ Core™ i5 processors delivering native support for DDR3
memory up to 2200+MHz by the enhanced design of GIGABYTE, Intel Core™ i7/ Core™ i5
processors feature the memory controller integrated directly into the processor die, rather than
as part of the Northbridge as in previous generations, allowing for faster memory performance.
