A unique technology featured on GIGABYTE's motherboards has come to
graphics cards in the form of the Ultra Durable VGA technology banner.
This includes a 2oz copper design for a lower working temperature and a
reduction of hotspots, better overclocking and better power efficiency,
as well as Japanese solid capacitors, Tier 1 memory from Samsung and
Hynix, as well as quality Ferrite Core chokes and MOSFETs adding to the
benefits of the 2oz copper design. You'll find the majority of
non-reference GIGABYTE graphics cards sporting this logo, while
SuperOverclock (SOC) cards feature the Ultra Durable VGA Plus+ logo.
Any major computer upgrade generally requires a full software reinstall too. No so if you heed the advice in the guide to Upgrading a Motherboard without Reinstalling. PCSTATS Tips
