New Proprietary Software
We have been telling you a lot about the functionality of Gigabyte’s proprietary software that they bundle with their mainboards. Therefore, today we are not going to post screenshots of all existing utilities, and will only focus on the new programs, which we haven’t seen before. Among those is the LAN Optimizer utility that comes with Gigabyte GA-Z77X-UP4 TH mainboard. It will help you configure the priorities of your network interface.
Both mainboards has USB Blocker tool with them. It allows assigning USB ports to specific types of devices. Upon first program launch you will be prompted to set a password, which you will have to use every time you need to make a change.
In conclusion, let me mention CPU-Z utility. It has been around for a very long time, but they have recently released a special version of it, which differs from the regular one by unique interface design typical of Gigabyte “G1-Killer” mainboard series.
