TAIPEI, Taiwan - Gigabyte announced the new GIGABYTE Z68XP-UD3-iSSD motherboard based on the Intel Z68 Express chipset and pre-bundled with the 20GB Intel Solid-State Drive 311 Series. The included mSATA-based single level cell (SLC) solid-state drive (SSD), allows users to take advantage of the performance benefits of Intel Smart Response Technology straight out of the box. The package is expected to be available to end-users in early June from selected online retailers internationally.
GIGABYTE Z68 series motherboards are equipped with the much anticipated Intel Smart Response Technology, allowing users to experience system performance similar to SSD-only systems. Intel Smart Response technology works by using intelligent block-based caching of frequently used applications to improve system performance and responsiveness. In fact, GIGABYTE Z68 motherboards with Intel Smart Response Technology are able to outperform hybrid drive systems by more than 4X (PC Mark Vantage HDD test score) and deliver a 60% performance improvement over HDD-only systems in PC Mark Vantage Suite.
