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.

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.


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.



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.


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.


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.


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.


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.


NanoCarbon Baseplate

The motherboard bottom is equipped with a nano-carbon coating back plate with high thermal conductivity. It can transfer the waste heat generated by the PWM components to the heat dissipation back plate through the heat pipe, and use the nano-carbon coating with excellent thermal conductivity to quickly cool down. The overall heat dissipation performance is enhanced from the back, effectively reducing the temperature of the PWM components on the back of the PCB by 10%.

Green Data Center Solutions

In response to the growing demand for data centers from all sectors, GIGABYTE began assisting customers with deploying different types of immersion cooling data centers in 2021. Our solutions have since won praise from academic, scientific research, government, and industry customers. Investment and support for immersion cooling computing solutions were further expanded in 2022 with the introduction of off-the-shelf, turn-key single-phase immersion cooling computing solutions that offer advantages such as breakthrough cooling performance, high-performance computing, mobile deployment, and high scalability. Our solution effectively reduces energy consumption and helps users realize the net zero carbon emissions goal.

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 the 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 eliminated printed user manuals for all motherboards and retained just essential quick installation guides in 2022. Detailed instructions and configurations are now presented via a QR Code. The change reduced not only paper consumption and waste but also the need for non-environmentally friendly processes, such as color printing, gluing, and lamination of manual cover pages.

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 has started declining. In 2022, GIGABYTE used 5,494.7 metric tons of paper and 285.6 metric tons of plastic in packaging materials, a reduction of 60.43% compared to 2011. The recycling ratio for packaging was 95.1%, and we will continue with further reductions in the future in order to realize our goal.
