Feature rich, with dual Thunderbolts.

Good: Contains all the features of regular Z77 motherboards i addition to dual Thunderbolt ports that allow for 12 devices to be daisy-chained, and an additional 3 monitors. Performance and overclocking on par with other mid to high-end boards.
Bad: Barely any bundled accessories.
Price: AED 800

The Gigabyte GA-Z77X-UP4 TH comes as one of the latest editions to Gigabyte’s Z77 lineup of motherboards. Not content with the regular set of features, such as Dual UEFI BIOS and Virtu MVP dual iGPU + discrete GPU connectivity, Gigabyte’s latest motherboard comes not with just one but two Thunderbolt ports.

The idea behind the Gigabyte GA-Z77X-UP4 TH is that it’s a feature rich board at an affordable price that allows for easy expansion of your system with everything you could want from and Ivy bridge system.

The Gigabyte GA-Z77X-UP4 TH comes with 4x SATA cables, an SLI bridge and a rear I/O panel cover. Beyond that we have the instruction manuals, drivers disk and a sticker. Pretty sparse on the packaging there, but the this isn’t exactly a high-end board, so you shouldn’t be expecting extra goodies packed in the first place.

From auditing to editing, I now test and analyze the latest gadgets and games instead of the latest financial statements. Both jobs are equally intense and rewarding. When I'm not burning up hardware in the name of science, you'll find me nuking in DOTA 2 or engineering in TF2.
