Updating bios gigabyte p55a ud4p
Gigabyte hasn't reinvented the wheel here, it's just directed its electronic parts buyers to pick higher tolerance fuses so power drop is reduced by a small amount (4.8V we are told, rather than 4.6V for the standard fuse of this type).
USB voltage levels can impact device stability, and the number of devices connected to each port.
Much of this speed improvement is due to USB 3.0 being a bi-directional bus, meaning it can transfer information to a device and to a host computer simultaneously.
Next up is a major boost to the electrical capabilities of all the GA-P55A-UD4P's USB ports - Gigabyte are calling this USB3x Power Boost.
The '333' name comes from USB3.0, SATA 3 and 3x USB Power.
While mechanical SATA III hard drives see a small boost in performance, the real benefits are seen when using the latest generation SSD or a pair of Barracuda XT's in RAID 0.USB 3.0 ports are identifiable by the blue colour and nine electrical connector pins.These ports are physically compatible with USB 2.0 and USB 1.1 devices and standard USB A-type cables.On the Gigabyte GA-P55A-UD4P motherboard both of these values are increased, so more devices or things like external hard drives can be powered by the USB ports alone.USB2.0 power levels increase from 500m A to This isn't going to change the performance of any USB device, but it will stop some especially power hungry things like external 2.5 inch hard drive enclosures from conking out unexpectedly and increase overall system stability if you use a lot of USB devices (and who doesn't? In addition to boosting available power over USB sockets, Gigabyte has improved the fusing behind them in case something goes awry.
The GA-P55A-UD4P still has support for all of Intel's socket 1156 Core i5 700-series and Core i7 800-series processors, can be installed with up to 16GB of DDR3 memory at speeds of 800/1066/1333/2200 in four DDR3 memory slots.
