Gigabyte is showing how good its new Ultra Durable 5 motherboard design with PowIRstage is by driving a massive 2000W through the CPU socket of its Z77X-UP7 overclocking motherboard.
How do you best demonstrate what 32-phases of power regulation can do? Well, if you’re Gigabyte, you hook up a pair of 1200W power supplies and wire up the board to three DC load testers and pull an insane 2000W through the CPU socket.
According to Gigabyte, this is enough power to power 25 Core i7-3770K CPUs. As you might’ve gathered, you won’t actually be able to pull 2000W, but Gigabyte is simply trying to demonstrate how good their new Ultra Durable 5 motherboard design using PowIRstage’s is compared to their previous models.
