GIGABYTE X99P-SLI World's First Intel® Thunderbolt™ 3 Certified X99 Motherboard

The GIGABYTE X99P-SLI motherboard is the world's first X99 motherboard to be certified to support Thunderbolt 3. This gives enthusiasts that need the tried-and-true horsepower and reliability of the X99 chipset access to the world’s fastest connectivity protocol. Powered by Intel’s own Thunderbolt 3 controller, the new Thunderbolt 3 protocol is available over a USB Type-C connector on the back I/O of select GIGABYTE motherboards including the X99P-SLI. Bringing an unprecedented single-wire bandwidth of up to 40 Gb/s - twice more than the previous generation!

Support for Thunderbolt 3 on the GIGABYTE GA-X99P-SLI motherboard opens up a world of possibilities for enthusiasts or professionals using the X99 chipset. With the unmatched bandwidth that Thunderbolt 3 provides, enthusiasts can use new devices such as discrete GPU boxes, external quad M.2 drives or U.2 expansion drives. Support for DisplayPort 1.2 makes Thunderbolt 3 a must have for any power user, but in order for Thunderbolt 3 to be able to carry a video signal on the X99 platform, the DisplayPort of a discrete graphics card must be connected to the X99P-SLI on-board DisplayPort-In via a DisplayPort cable (provided).

Daisy-chain Multiple Devices

Support for DisplayPort 1.2 makes Thunderbolt™ 3 a must have for any enthusiast. The X99P-SLI is able to support a display in 4K resolution at 60 FPS. In addition, Thunderbolt™ 3 over USB Type-C™ has revolutionary industry-first features such as Power Delivery 2.0, and the ability to daisy-chain up to 6 devices thanks to the X99P-SLI's USB Type-C™ port.

Pure speed!

The Intel® USB 3.1 controller utilises 4 PCIe Gen3 lanes, offering up to 32 Gb/s total bandwidth, for uncompromising transfer speeds of up to 10 Gb/s per USB 3.1. With twice the bandwidth compared to its previous generation, and backwards compatibility with USB 2.0 and 3.0, the much improved USB 3.1 protocol is available over the new reversible USB Type-C and the traditional USB Standard-A connector for better compatibility over a wider range of devices.

Connecting the Future - USB Type-C

The USB Type-C™ is a new reversible connector that is loaded with useful features such as USB 3.1 support for 10 Gb/s transfer speed and DisplayPort 1.2 support to connect 4K monitors. Powered by the Intel® controller, this little port is the better USB Type-C™.

Fast On-board Storage with 32Gb/s M.2

GIGABYTE M.2 solution offers considerably faster storage performance and support for PCIe NVMe SSD devices - with speeds up to four times that of a conventional solid state drive.

Support for DDR4 XMP up to 3333MHz

DDR4 memory modules are available at a stock frequency of 2133MHz, but memory vendors encode XMP profiles which can automatically modify the frequency and timings of the supported memory modules to work in par with your CPU. With the X99 Champion Series, GIGABYTE is offering a tested and proven platform that ensures proper compatibility with profiles up to 3333MHz.

Next Generation SATA Express Connector

GIGABYTE X99 series motherboards feature an on-board SATA Express connector which provides performance far superior to that of current SATA technologies. SATA Express features data transfer rates of up to 10Gb/s, considerably higher than SATA Revision 3 (6Gb/s), which won’t bottleneck faster NAND flash technologies in cutting edge SSDs. SATA Express combines the benefits of PCI-Express and SATA to provide much higher bandwidth, allowing SATA Express based drives to perform at similar speeds as PCI-Express based drives.
