GIGABYTE has introduced various innovative materials, technologies, and meticulous management mechanisms at various stages of the product life cycle in order to facilitate the outstanding performance of the product with high efficiency and stable durability. Moreover, the design stage takes circular economy as its core, it will contribute to moving towards our zero-waste goal.

Design of High-Performance and High-Efficiency Products

After launching the Ultra Durable Motherboard in 2007, GIGABYTE progressively introduced innovative technologies such as energy-saving switches, 2X copper PCBs, and high current capable components that boosted motherboard stability and extended product service life. The latest Smart Fan 5 and Water Force water-cooling technologies provide a major boost to graphics card performance. In addition, GIGABYTE took the lead in supporting CEC 2019 (California Energy Commission device energy efficiency standards) by using high-quality hardware and a fine-tuned BIOS design to lower the power consumption even more. GIGABYTE is continuing to apply for more international energy efficiency certifications to improve the credibility of energy-saving data and provide consumers with comprehensive protection.

Advances in AI, 5G, and cloud computing technologies have led to much higher requirements being set for data centers by all sectors. A research report found that data centers rivaled the airline industry in its carbon emissions and its energy consumption was very significant. Due to the extreme weather modes brought about by global warming around the world. GIGABYTE made environmentally friendliness our mission by developing innovative data center cooling solutions designed for the future. We were successful in achieving exceptional energy efficiency, eliminate waste of water and electricity resources, and reducing the greenhouse effect caused by the industry.

2013

Ultra Durable™ 5th Plus Technology

Integration of high-quality components and efficient energy-saving function provides high-performance system operation, lower heat, and extends motherboard lifespan.

2014 / 2015

Ultra Durable Motherboard

Strengthen heat dissipation of motherboard in order to achieve high performance and stability at low temperature while the system works at full capacity and maximum frequency.

2016

Smart Fan 5 Cooling Solution

Improve motherboard temperature monitoring and cooling to reduce the amount of time that computer components spend at high temperatures and extend their service life.

2017

Anti-sulfur

Grant the ultra-durable motherboards brand-new values with the proprietary anti-sulfur technique. It can prevent the sulfide in the air from penetrating the built-in resistor of the motherboards and causing short circuits.

2019

Early Adopter of CEC 2019

With higher efficiency, higher quality hardware materials, and carefully calibrated BIOS, GIGABYTE motherboards consume less power in standby mode when compared with other products.

2020

Extreme Waterforce Thermal Design

Extreme waterforce motherboards use all-in-one water-cooling monoblock that covers both CPU, VRM, SSD, and PCH areas. The design ensures stability, low temperature, and noise avoidance under full loading application and gaming.

2021

Fanless Chipset Design

The reconfiguration of hardware circuitry and enlargement of chip heatsinks allowed the entire chipset to be upgraded to a fanless cooling design. This not only solves the problem of fan noise but also helps to avoid the tendency for passive cooling systems to become clogged by dust.

2022

Gen 3 Fins-Array Design

The all-new 3rd generation Fins-Array provides extreme cooling performance through irregular extended fins that provide nine times the cooling surface than conventional heatsink designs. The increase in heat exchange surface delivers optimal thermal transfer and waste heat conversion.

Friendly Packaging Materials

GIGABYTE continues to streamline packaging, increase the ratio of recycled materials used, and replacement of polystyrene padding materials in order to reduce consumption of packaging materials and the waste they subsequently produce. We began analyzing our packaging recovery rate and composition in 2011, and reduction progress is reviewed every year. In 2021, GIGABYTE launched the “Product Packaging and Incoming Packaging Reduction Plan”. Non-use of disposable packaging materials from 2030 onwards was set as the ultimate goal.

GIGABYTE makes every effort to avoid excessive packaging while maintaining a certain level of protection. The total weight of packaging used by products in recent years have started declining. In 2021, GIGABYTE used 6,974.2 tonnes of paper packaging and 376.2 tonnes of plastic packaging. Total use of packaging was therefore 49.68% lower than 2011. The 2021 recycling rate dipped slightly compared to the previous year due to the reduction in paper packaging use being more significant than the amount of plastic packaging used. We will continue to implement our goal through the reduction action plan.
